Choosing the right area rug for your space
Are you moving into a new apartment, or just looking for a way to spruce up your space this summer? Turn to professional area rug cleaners to revitalize the look of your favourite rugs or choose a new rug that’ll showcase your unique sense of style. Keep reading for a few simple tips to help you find the right rug for your space.
Colour is often one of the biggest deciding factors when it comes to choosing any piece of home decor.
Choose a rug that matches or complements your home’s existing colour palette. For example, if your sofa is one colour, look for patterns and designs that will help your sofa pop. If your sofa already features a pattern, then a monochromatic rug might work best.
When you go shopping, take something from home that represents the colour palette you’re working with to give yourself a visual reminder of the colours your new rug needs to complement.
One of the first things that you’ll have to consider when rug shopping, is the size of the rug you’re looking for. You’re going to need exact measurements to make the right decision. Try plotting out the dimensions of your dream rug by using painter’s tape to map the area on your floor. Measure the height and width of the area you’ve taped out and look for a rug that’s close to that size.
The thickness, density and texture of an area rug can change the look and the feel of the room it’s in. Consider how you want the rug to feel under your feet, whether anyone will sit on it directly, and also how you’ll clean it.
Another thing that you’ll want to consider when choosing a rug is your lifestyle. There’s no sense in picking out the perfect rug only to find out that it’s too delicate to keep up with the pets, children, or other traffic in the space. Keep your lifestyle and needs in mind when you’re shopping.
