Usually in the living areas, where they take pride of place and create a setting for the rest of the room.
Most houses have some form of carpeting, if not wall to wall carpeting, then tiles, or wooden floors.
Tiles and wooden flooring can be very cold and make a room look bare, even though it is furnished.
Plus tiles are very cold in winter and not pleasant to walk on, giving off an icy chill.
Rooms, with tiled or wooden flooring, or wall to wall carpeting, look so much better with a 9 x 12 rug.
This 9 x 12 area rug can define separate areas in a large open spaced loft, so as to have a lounge and entertainment area, a dining room, and a bedroom.
When you have a 9 x 12 area rug in a lounge or bedroom area, the area immediately feels warmer, and cosier somehow.
You can set your furniture out better with the rug in front of a beautiful fireplace.
Your couches and side chairs and coffee tables look like they belong there, as apposed to on a bare wooden or tiled floor.
There are some lovely 9 x 12 area rugs on the market.
Persian rugs have the most intricate designs and colours which fit any décor and look stunning on wooden floors.
There are the plain colours for those with patterned furniture and then floral, and highly patterned ones.
The rugs are also easier to maintain than wall to wall carpeting, as they can be cleaned and treated professionally.
These rugs also give the bedroom that cosy warm and welcoming look, and are very nice to walk on.
There is one to suit every style of décor.
They are made from wool, sisal, cotton/wool, mix, silk as in the Persian 9 x 12 area rugs, and then man made fibres as well.
