How to choose your Rug?

It can be difficult to choose between all the styles of rugs available, which is why we discuss some materials below to help you make the proper choice.

1- Natural materials

Rugs can be crafted from natural materials such as wool, bamboo, or cotton. Wool rugs provide comfort and warmth and are a material that is resistant to use and does not get very dirty. Bamboo rugs are very resistant and easy to care for. In addition, bamboo is an environmentally friendly material! In addition to their natural look, cotton rugs don’t get dirty and are easy to care for.

2- Synthetic materials

Synthetic material rugs are easy to care for in all colors and patterns! Polypropylene, acrylic, or polyester are the easiest materials to care for, as well as being antistatic, resistant to dirt, and easy to clean. In addition, rugs made of synthetic materials are the ideal allies in households with children – don’t hesitate to place a rug under your dining table or in front of your sofa!

3- Density and finishes

Two more criteria can be fundamental when choosing your rug, the density of the materials that make it up and the finishes. The denser a rug is, the softer and more comfortable it will be. The finishes are also very important as they guarantee the refinement of your rug. For example, Berber rugs’ fringes give them an incomparable style. Some cotton rugs are hand woven to ensure the highest quality. Tufting is also a weaving process that offers excellent rug quality.

How Big Should Your Rug Be?

You can use a large rug under your sofa and armchairs in the living area. You can also place the sofa’s front legs and armchairs on top of a medium-sized rug. With a smaller rug, you can place the sofa and armchairs around it. It is best to choose a large enough rug for the chairs in the dining area, even when they have pulled away from the table.

It’s easy to create a bigger rug

If you want a bigger rug, you can put two rugs together. Rugs help create different room zones, such as a TV-watching or dining area. Therefore, joining two rugs also helps to create a larger area. You can even add many rugs together to create a wall-to-wall carpet feel.

Rug pile or flat weave?

The fur rugs are soft and cozy. If you use many of them, you can reduce the noise in your house because the dense and thick fur absorbs the sound. Flatweave rugs are thinner. As they allow chairs to be moved easily and are easy to vacuum, they are a good choice for your kitchen or dining space.
