The Best Area Rugs for Every Type of Room

When it comes to designing a room, area rugs play a much more important role than one would think. Because of their large size, they have the power to completely transform a room—and make a space feel grounded (or conversely, make it feel off-balance if it's not the right size). Searching for the perfect rug is an art that involves many factors: How big should the rug be? What material should I choose? What if I need something durable?
As we've pointed out before, rugs that are too small can make a space feel disjointed or cheap, but there are many more factors to consider. To help you find the best area rugs for your home, your needs, and most importantly, your budget, we rounded up our favorite rugs to suit virtually any type of space. Do you have young children or pets? Do you want to find the perfect option for your dining room or your hallway? Are you looking for a durable investment rug? Look no further—whatever your needs are, we have the best area rug for you.
Jayson Home Vintage Oushak Rug ($7159)
Vintage Oushak rugs are fantastic for two reasons: First, they only get better with age, and second, they already show signs of wear and tear, which means you won't notice new scratches or stains. Choose one made out of wool, which is one of the most durable finishes for pets.
