Not only do area rugs help define and anchor seating areas within a room, but they offer several practical advantages. To begin with, it is nearly always less expensive to decorate a floor with an area rug than to fit it with wall-to-wall carpeting, which entails installation and a certain amount of wastage. In addition, an area rug offers the advantage of being able to be turned around to evenly distribute wear. The fact that an area rug is not tacked down also allows it to be bent away to be cleaned, or even rolled up and taken with you when you move. It bears pointing out, too, that outfitting a room with wall-to-wall carpeting and an area rug is not a mutually exclusive proposition. An area rug can be placed over he hightraffic areas in a wall-to-wall carpeted room to extend the underlying carpet’s life, or to cover a stain or wear at its center. An area rug can also be placed over wall-to-wall carpeting simply to achieve a plush layered effect.
