When you are styling a room, sometimes all you need to pull everything in the room together is the perfect area rug. There are several considerations that must be made when choosing the rug for your space. It is important that you think about all of the different aspects of the rug as you make your decision. Carpet Dry-Tech is here to talk about some things that you need think about as you go area rug shopping.
What Size Area Rug Should I Buy?
The first thing that you need to think about for your area rug is the size. You don’t want to pick a rug that is going to be too small for the space. Most of the time this is the problem. Many people will choose a rug that isn’t large enough and doesn’t look right. The size of your rug is going to depend on the room that you are styling. Here are some basic rules to follow in certain rooms.
– Living Room: At the very least, all of the front legs of your furniture should be resting on your rug. If possible, have a rug large enough that all of the legs of your furniture can rest on the rug.
– Dining Room: When thinking about your dining room, you need to picture the chairs pulled out from the table. You want the legs of the chairs to remain on the rug even when they are pulled out.
– Bedroom: If you have a queen bed in your bedroom, you will need a rug that is 8×10. If you have a king, look for a rug that is 9×12.
Does a Large Rug Make a Room Look Bigger or Smaller?
If you have a room that is unusually large, you should consider breaking the space up into different areas with more than one rug. It can help you to designate certain areas for different activities. Maybe you have a room that has the dining room and the living room in one space. The rugs can be used to let people know where the dining room ends, and the living room begins.
What Kind of Rug is Good for High Traffic?
There are more than likely several areas in your home that see a lot of foot traffic. You will need to consider the rugs that are going to go in these spaces. Think about durability and cleanability for these rugs. Hand-knotted or hand-tufted rugs are good, durable options for these spaces. Outdoor rugs can be a great choice as well and are easy to clean too.
