3x5 foot rugs are great rugs for a space that just feels too empty. Most common places for this size rug are in the front door, kitchen, bedroom, office, or wide hallway. Waking up to a shag rug at the side of your bed is a great start to any morning!
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
