The rug in the dining room is worn on the sides, such that I've taken to putting small rugs (like bathroom or kitchen floor mats) over the rough spots to obscure them. But it's increasingly unsightly and even dangerous given how easy it is to trip over those tiny rugs on-top-of rugs. Should I replace it? And how about one of these? They both remind me of an heirloom rug of my grandparents which was supposed to go to me but that my mother destroyed "accidentally" before I could obtain it.
