HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT RUG FOR EACH ROOM IN YOUR HOME
A well-placed rug is an effortless way to anchor your space and tie your interiors together. Discover our tips for choosing the perfect rug for each room in your home so that you can elevate your space with ease.
DEFINE THE PURPOSE OF YOUR SPACE
Each room throughout your home will have a different functional purpose that will reflect the amount of foot-traffic throughout the space and the way you want to feel in each room. Defining the purpose of your space will help you decide on the design, weave and fibre that you need for your new rug.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT WEAVE AND FIBRE
A luxurious wool rug may be the perfect option for your bedroom as it will be soft to step out onto in the morning, yet a durable flat-weave rug will be a great addition to the high-traffic rooms in your home as it will offer sturdiness and longevity.
Jute and flat-weave rugs are a perfect option for your living room and dining room spaces as they are extremely durable and easy to clean. Both options are also a great choice for people with allergies as fewer allergens are able to get stuck in the fibres.
Wool and hand-knotted rugs are a beautiful option for the rooms where you want to add warmth with a rug that is soft underfoot. Both options also offer wonderful insulation properties and are perfect for absorbing sound in larger rooms.
DECIDING ON SIZE AND SHAPE
Ask any designer and they will tell you that when it comes to choosing a rug bigger is better. Making the mistake of choosing a rug that is too small for your space can make the room appear out of proportion.
