31 May Things to Consider when Choosing a Rug
A rug is a popular option for making rooms more comfortable, inviting, and updating décor. Rugs are a cost-effective way to give a room personality. There are a number of guidelines that professional interior decorators utilize when choosing a rug for their clients that anyone can emulate when choosing their own.
Don’t follow fads. Just because a certain type of material, color or style is trendy at the moment doesn’t mean it will be the right choice for everyone. Purchasing a rug is a personal decision that will reflect the individual’s own unique sense of style and existing décor.
When seeking a suitable rug, individuals should consider their lifestyle. People with children, pets, and who entertain frequently will want to choose a rug in a material that’s durable and one that’s easy to maintain. To minimize the appearance of dirt or stains, a rug with a dark pattern works best.
The chosen rug should accommodate the size of the seating area, which means measuring the area the rug will be expected to cover. Furniture should set comfortable on the rug, but it’s also acceptable if only the front legs of chairs are on the fabric. The goal is to have people’s feet rest on the rug and not the bare floor when they’re seated.
Interior designers typically choose a rug around which furniture will be clustered to create an intimate setting. Kitchen rugs should cover enough area so that even when chairs are pulled back from the table, they’ll still be on the rug.
Shoppers will be faced with a myriad of color and pattern choices. It can be helpful to take along a photo of the room the rug will go in. The floor covering should incorporate two or three of the room’s predominant colors and consider a patterned rug if the sofa is a solid color. The rug will be the anchor to create the ambiance of the room.
