1. They separate and define. With today's modern open layouts, it's not unusual to find one big room that houses both the living and dining areas. Use coordinating but separate area rugs in each space. It's also common to section off a corner of a room for reading, paying bills, or whatever you want.
2. They accent and highlight. Layer the rugs over an existing surface to add texture and color (or quiet the color and pattern down). You're not covering up a beautiful floor. If anything, you're bringing attention to it by showcasing it further by bringing out gorgeous hardwood undertones or some hue in a multi-colored carpet.
3. Finally, you might want to create an area rug to save money or preserve sentiment. A new carpet installation often has a lot of leftovers from the roll. Sometimes rugs are worn but are also family heirlooms that you can't bear to part with, or they are just too expensive to replace, such as an Oriental or Persian.
