Picking The Perfect Rug
If you are looking for a way to quickly and easily spruce up your space, a rug is the perfect choice. One of the most important qualities that a home can have is coziness and comfort. A staple piece that is important for any cozy home is a rug. Continue reading to learn more about how to pick the perfect rug for your home.
Measure Every Time
The first important tip for picking the perfect rug is to measure your space and measure your rugs. The size of a carpet matters a ton for a room. There can be rugs that are too big and rugs that are too small. Most pieces of the room’s large furniture should sit on top of (or at least partially on top of) your rug.
Another good rule of thumb is to get a rug that is two feet off of the sides of the room, so for example, a room that is 8 x 12 feet should have a rug that is 6 x 10 feet. If you measure everything ahead of time, you will eliminate any potential headaches and improve your space dramatically.
Think About Pattern And Color Cohesion
As previously suggested, rugs come in all shapes and sizes. Carpets also come in all patterns and colors. Certain colors and patterns convey a certain stylistic choice. Consider researching what kinds of styles on interior design exist and base your choice on your findings and your own personal likes. The perfect rug with have a pattern that will be cohesive with the rest of your room and that will better the appearance of the room.
Pick Based On The Location
The location where you plan to put your carpet will greatly affect the kind of rug you will need. Your bedroom, living room, and dining rooms will need larger rugs, but in your dining room, you’ll need to take into consideration that the rug could get messy. This will affect the color and texture choice you make for your rug. If you are putting a rug in an entryway, hallway, or on your front porch you’ll likely want a slimmer or smaller carpet.
The location also affects the material that you will want your rug to be made out of. If you are putting your carpet in a high-traffic area, then you will want to choose a rug that is easy to clean, such as a flat weave. If you are looking for a more decorative option that will not be walked on a ton, such as a shag carpet.
Contemplate The Material
The material of a rug will have a large impact on the price and your overall experience after buying a rug. There are many different types of materials that a rug can be made out of. Silk, cotton, and wool rugs are often beautiful and soft but are going to be a lot more expensive than rugs made out of synthetic materials.
Synthetic materials are also easier to clean so if you have kids or animals, this might be a good choice for you. And as previously touched on earlier in the article, the material that your rug should be made out of will change as you change the location of the rug. For example, kitchen and dining room carpets should be stain-proof and outdoor mats should be weather resistant.
