Since the dawn of man, area rugs have been in existence. From animal hides salvaged for warmth under the feet in cold rock caves, to palm leaves, hay, and other vegetation being used in the forests as protection from the elements, there is no doubt that area rugs have a deeply rooted history that dates back to the beginning of evolution.
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.
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!
