3 X 5 to 5 X 8 Area Rugs
Rugs in between the sizes of 3 X 5 to 5 X 8 are widely preferred due to a number of reasons. Firstly, these sizes are what we call middle sizes. Not too big, not too small. It gives the person working on the decoration a number of choices to use the rug in a flexible way. They can be the main rug in a smaller room or a subsidiary element in a middle sized room as well as a main element in a middle sized room depending on the decor preferences. Those who prefer a rug not to cover a large space in their rooms usually consider a rug between 3 X 5 to 5 X 8. This actually creates spaciousness in a middle sized room as the floor is clearly visible on all sides of the rug. In this kind of decor usually the sofa and the armchair is pushed back from the rug by some inches and this leaves a visible floor space. Rugs between the sizes of 3 X 5 to 5 X 8 also work well in front of plants. A bundle of plants can be grouped behind or next to rug in these sizes creating a natural composition in a corner or the side of a room. While smaller kitchens prefer smaller rugs, a more spacious kitchen can be a great space to use you 3 X 5 to 5 X 8 rug. We see decorators using a rug this size under the dining table if there is a dining table under the kitchen. This will both create a warmer environment visually, at the same time it is more comfortable and cosy to step on a rug while eating instead of naked floor.
