There is really no wrong way to place a rug. It is truly up to the dweller on what fits their lifestyle and look.  But, if you need a little help getting started, HYD's resident Interior Designer has put together this quick guide and some helpful tips. So don't worry, we've got you and your floor... covered.

LIVING ROOM:

When it comes to laying rugs in the living room, a great rule of thumb is to always have the two front legs of your furniture on the rug. This keeps the furniture grouped together and gives the overall space a better feel.

DINING ROOM:

In the dining room, all four legs of the chairs should fit on the rug. This makes scooting in and out of your chair more feasible.
