The 3' x 5' size area rug is considered a scatter rug size that makes it easy to enhance a room with a bit of color and style. Throw a 3x5 rug beside the bed or accent a piece of furniture with a small rug. This size also makes for a good size at the front door in a small entry way area or in front of a vanity or kitchen sink. We suggest wool for long-wearing durability, but some of the newer poly materials are also very easy to keep clean in a high traffic area.
