Step 1 – The Rugs’ Purpose
The rugs should be chosen depending on the function they will perform since each division has different "rules" to obey. The main function of the rug is to provide comfort and warmth and it is also an essential decorative element. However, before you start planning a space, you must take into consideration for whom the space is.

Step 2 - The Perfect Measure
Before making the purchase decision, you must carefully measure your area in question. There are numerous ways to use a rug in a room, combining it with different sizes and textures.
