Rugs are a double edged sword. They can absolutely give a finished look to a room, but on the same note, they can really ruin the look if they are dirty or dated. I host a lot of parties and have a dog that thinks the rug is his personal playground, so when it comes to making a purchase I hate to spend a lot of money as I often want to change it.
