In the dining room, designers suggest centering the furniture over the rug and choosing a rug that fits the shape of the table. If you have a round table, place a round area rug underneath. "The round shape in a square room can help soften the space," says Sigal.
"In a bedroom, rugs are a great way to make the room feel more cozy by adding them alongside the bedroom furniture," says Beatty. You can also place one under the end of the bed, letting the rug extend into the room to pull a large space together.
