Choosing a rug for your home

Buying a rug is difficult. You have to consider the size, style, colour and material of your rug. One of the biggest mistakes people make when choosing rugs is choosing one that matches their furniture. You'll end up with a room full of boring pieces and nothing will stand out or be unique if you follow this method. Instead, try mixing and matching patterns and textures. Use a round rug with one pattern or texture in an entire room, rather than repeating it in different parts of the room. This will help create a cohesive look. Don't place two similar rugs next to each other. This can be seen as unbalanced.

Know where your rug will be placed

When choosing a rug, it is important to consider the area where your new floor covering will be used. Ideally, your rug should be made for the conditions in a particular room of your home. How many people will walk on this rug? Consider how many people and pets will walk on it every day, week and year. Consider choosing a durable rug that can withstand frequent foot traffic and spills if you are going to put it in a room where guests will eat and drink. Make sure the rug is washable or stain-resistant so you don't have to worry about permanent damage. Is there enough sunlight coming through windows or skylights for the sun to fade the colours in your rug? If not, choose a grey round rug that won't fade over time if exposed to too much light from windows/rooflights during sunny seasons.

Know the size of your rug

There is one thing you should never do when it comes to buying a rug. Let the size determine your purchase decision. This is common knowledge, but people get carried away with a beautiful piece of rug. They end up spending more money than they intended. The truth is that no matter how big your room or rug is, it will look great as long as it fits in the space. Start by measuring each item that will be placed on it, such as a table. Measure the room itself so you have an idea of how big or small your rug needs to be. On average, most people should have no problem finding the right size rug for their needs.
