The Ultimate Guide To Buying An Area Rug

by Eli Schmidt

One of the best ways you can complement a room is to purchase an area rug for it. These come in so many different styles and sizes. So that you're completely satisfied with this purchase, be sure to utilize this buying guide. 


One of the more impactful features to assess when buying an area rug is the size. The options are pretty vast today. Some take up pretty much the entire room while others are much smaller. How do you know what area rug size to get for your home?

Well, this really depends on where the area rug is going. For example, you would need a much larger area rug for a living room compared to a bedroom. It also helps to map out potential measurements for this rug with a ruler. You can test various dimensions until you find measurements that work for your particular space. 


Just like size, there is quite a bit of variety in terms of what area rugs are made out of today. This is an important feature to assess both in terms of aesthetics and comfort. Some of the more popular options include wool, cotton, silk, and synthetic fiber. Wool rugs are extremely thick and durable. They are great if you live in colder environments.

Cotton is one of the more common materials because of its availability and affordability. Silk rugs are great if you're going for a more high-end look. They often come with a premium price tag as well. In terms of maintenance, you can't go wrong with synthetic fiber. It's one of the easiest materials to take care of over the years.


How happy you are with this area rug selection is often dependent on the style you go with. There are some things to keep in mind when trying to narrow down a particular style. Start with the style already in the room where this area rug is going. You probably want to go with the same style, be it modern or rustic, so that you can create an in-sync look.

The color scheme is also important to take into account in terms of design. Neutral colors are a great way to compliment elements already in the room, while vibrant colors will make your area rug stand out quite a bit. Just try choosing a style that you think will work long-term. 

Purchasing an area rug for your home feels so great, and it may be the last thing you need to complete a room. As long as you weigh important factors and choose something that you truly love, your area rug selection will work perfectly. Look for area rugs near you in order to learn more.
