Any rules to follow when choosing the size? Get a room sized rug. most people choose rugs that are too small. What should people expect to spend for a standard 8‘ x 10‘ rug? Only Jesus knows the answer to this. You can spend as much as you would like to! Rag rugs, sisal, even bordered an bound remnants can be very inexpensive—depends on the job, client/and budget!
I do not know what a standard rug really means. I know of antique rugs that are 8 by 10 and cost $250,000. A good contemporary rug should probably cost $10 to 15,000, unless it is a normal rug in which case $5,000 should do it, I must say that I am not quite sure.
WILLIAM GEORGIS. I look for character when choosing or designing an area rug. I generally look for a rug which leaves between a 6" to 15" wood border, depending on the size of the room.
