Help! I'm having Rug Rage! Time and time again I see ill-sized rugs being used in Home Staging projects and 99.9% of them are too small for the space or the furniture collection it's anchoring.
Size does matter!
And don't get me started on materials - I've seen bath rugs used under cocktail tables..
Why is this happening? Where can this this size dilemma and faux pas placement stem from?
1. Home Staging Inventory Issues?
2. Lack of Education?
3. Complacent Stagers?
