If you have hard surface flooring in your home, area rugs are not only beautiful but functional. They can add beauty and style as well as comfort to any room. With all the area rug choices out there, choosing the right one can seem daunting. Don’t let choosing the right area rug leave you feeling stressed. Tough Carpet Cleaning is here to share some common mistakes people make when choosing an area rug for their home.
Don’t Choose Your Rug Last
When you are designing a space, you don’t want to wait until the end to choose your area rug. Area rugs are large statement pieces and should be one of the first things you choose when you are laying out your room. An area rug can be one of the items you build the design of a room around. Don’t miss out on that.
How to Choose an Area Rug Color
As you design a space, color is a big factor. Color can completely change the mood and atmosphere of a room. You don’t want to choose an area rug that clashes with the colors you have chosen for the space. During the process, if you can find pictures that are similar to the style you are trying to create, it can assist you in choosing the right color for your area rug. If are feeling uneasy about what color you should go with, stick with neutral colors. You can never go wrong when you choose neutral.
Multiple Area Rugs in One Room
Don’t choose a rug that is too small or choose two rugs that are equal in size for one room. When you place your area rug in the room, the front legs of the furniture on both sides should be on the rug to ensure it won’t look too small for the room. If you have a space large enough to accommodate two area rugs, choose two that are different sizes to avoid dividing the room and making the space seem smaller than it actually is.
Don’t Skip the Non Slip Rug Pad
To add another layer of comfort, go with a rug pad. It will help your rug stay in its place and avoid slipping and sliding around the room, as well as add comfort to your rug. This is especially the case if you have a flat weave rug.
Invest in a Good Quality Rug
It might be tempting to choose a rug made from cheaper materials to save a little money. In the end, you get what you pay for, and you will be better off spending the money on a rug made from quality materials. Some materials do better than others in high traffic areas like sisal, wool or jute.
