At all costs stay away from the bankruptcy sales or going out of business sales. Even if you purchase an area rug in the country of origin it is still no guarantee of any savings or the quality of the rugs as most of the best examples of the rugs will be saved and used in the export trade leaving less quality rugs for you to purchase in the local markets.

Laying and protecting your area rug. All area rugs that are placed on hardwood floors or laminate floors should be laid over top of a good non-slip underlayment which can prevent accidents. Having that extra underlayment under the carpet will also help in the protection of the underside of the area rug from the day to day wear and tare and will help to make it more soft and resilient. If you have a light area rug you can secure it by means of a special mesh backing or with the use of bonding strips. Another benefit of the area rug underlayment pad is it is useful if you are placing the area rug over an existing carpet. This will stop the area rug from creeping and wrinkling and it will also give you protection for the carpet if the area rug is prone not to be colorfast. Cleaning your area rugs should be done especially antique and Oriental with special care by laying an nylon screen over the rug and weighing down the screen so as to protect the rug from the vacuum. If you have high traffic then you should have the rug professionally cleaned. Rotating your area rugs will allow even wear. If there is a direct sunlight exposure then you should consider the proper window treatment that will protect the area rug from the harsh UV rays and the fading that can happen to your rugs.

About size a great way to determine what size rug is best for your room spread a bed sheet or butcher paper in the area and try different sizes. In dining areas youll want a rug at least 4 feet longer and wider than your table which would allow diners to push their chairs away from the table without slipping off the rug. In areas where the rugs will serve as a place for feet to rest while sitting in conversation areas choose rugs that are at least as large as the open area in front of sofas and chairs. You can leave up to a foot right in front of the furniture because most people dont place their feet right up against the front of the couch or chair. You can let the size of the rug determine the size and intimacy of that area or you can place your conversation area/s as you wish and then order a rug to fit that space. A large room can have a cozy feeling by dividing it visually into sections you choose with an area rug or two. Keep these rugs from extending into high traffic areas to avoid tripping.
