When it comes to rugs, size is number one. It is the first thing you need to concentrate on before progressing to rug design, colour and composition. The size of a rug is vital for connecting a room and creating balance. It is the invisible wall in open plan living and will define the area. The correct size rug will enhance the room and bring everything together. Go for the largest size that fits your budget, as it will unify the room and define the space you want to cover. A rug that is too small will bring the eye in and therefore make your room look smaller and also tends to make furniture look disconnected.
