How To Choose The Perfect Rug

How To Choose The Perfect Rug

How do I know what size rug to choose for my room?

The best way to determine the size of rug you should choose for your room is to measure the room and then use the measurements to determine the size of rug that would best fit the space. You should also consider the layout of the room and the furniture pieces in it to make sure you select the right size. A good rule of thumb is to make sure the rug is large enough to fit the front legs of the furniture within the rug's boundaries.

What kind of rug is best for high traffic?

When selecting a rug for high traffic areas, it is important to choose a rug that is durable, easy to clean, and stain resistant. Natural fibres such as wool, cotton, and jute are some of the best options as they are more resilient and can withstand heavy wear and tear. Synthetic fibres such as nylon and polyester are also good choices as they are often more affordable and easier to clean.

Why choose a rug?

Rugs add warmth, colour, and texture to any room and can be used to define different spaces or to tie a room together. They are also a great way to add a layer of comfort to a room, making it a cozy and inviting place to relax. 

Do you need to add a rug pad underneath a rug?

Yes, it is highly recommended to add a rug pad underneath your rug. A rug pad will help to keep your rug in place, protect it from wear and tear, and add extra cushioning for a softer feel underfoot.
