A Guide To Choosing A Rug For Your Home

March 17, 2022

When it comes to adding a little shine to a room without spending thousands of dollars on a total makeover, rugs are a popular alternative. Whatever the setting a rug can make all the difference. It can be as subtle or as bold as you desire.  Many people appreciate how simple it is to incorporate a rug into their home. Unravel, place in the desired location, and voila! Your space has been transformed.

There is an incredible quantity of choice available on the market, just as there is with the vast majority of other types of furniture. There are a profusion of colors to choose from, as well as a variety of styles and sizes. We thought it would be wonderful to put up a handy little guide to help you choose the perfect rug for your house. Even though this list is by no means comprehensive, it should serve as a starting point for figuring out exactly what you are looking for in a rug.

What size do you want?

Your rug’s size and how transformative you want it to be are two of the first elements you will need to take into consideration. Interested in simply adding a stylistic touch to your home? Do you want to entirely change the look and feel of the room? Naturally, the size of the space will play a considerable role in your decision-making process. Rooms that are too small can be overwhelmed by giant rugs, while a small rug can be lost in a big room.

What shape do you want?

Unless you are searching for something a little out of the ordinary, the most common shapes to choose from are rectangular, square, and circular. The one you choose will be significantly influenced by the space you are attempting to fill. Round rugs can be more difficult to style than other types of rugs, but when done correctly, they can add some real interior design credentials to your home.

No matter the shape you choose, make certain that it is in proper alignment with your furnishings. A rug should never make a space feel claustrophobic, and choosing a suitable shape will be a start in the right direction in this regard. Not only that but just because a rug is of basic rectangular shape does not imply that it has to be uninteresting or bland. Experiment with different textures and designs until you find the right rug for your home or office. If you find an antique rug or one in a thrift shop that is perfect but damaged, you can opt for a rug repair.

What sort of texture do you want?

When it comes to choosing the texture of your rug, practicality is quite important to consider. Keep it basic with a texture that is free of fuss and places a greater emphasis on design. While a fluffy sheepskin rug can be used to add cosiness, just keep in mind that a shaggy rug can rapidly become a rough and rugged rug in areas where there is a high likelihood of dirt and filth collecting. Whether or not you have children or dogs to contend with could make all the difference, so make your selection with caution.
