This is how you go about it .
• Choose the rug material : Natural materials are very popular. Now you can choose from cotton, wool, wool mixes, jute, sisal or bamboo are perfect in humid and tropical climates. These materials are easy to clean and sterilize. They are also available in a range of colors and patterns. However, for temperature and climate-controlled apartments, it would be a far better idea to invest in synthetic or artificial rugs. For example, nylon, polyester, or rayon mixes are perfect. These rugs are easy to clean and affordable as well.
• Choose the color: Brighter colors tend to brighten up smaller rooms and make them look bigger. For example, a dark blue rug would be perfect in large sunny living room while a dark blue rug would be ideal in the entry way to catch dirt and provide stability.
• Size makes a difference: Small area rugs are the most affordable option in a small house. Wall to wall rugs are also recommended if you have a lot of furniture. For a family room, 5 x 8 feet rugs are ideal to create focal areas. In dining areas, rugs should be large enough to allow space for chairs when pulled away from the table.
• Choose the rug style: Your lifestyle and personal style are the primary factors to be considered while choosing rug style. For example, a household with children would do better with larger rugs that are stabilized under furniture. Low-pile rugs with a thick anti-slip backing would also be recommended. Personal style is also important. For example, some people may prefer bright colors and contemporary prints over traditional designs and shapes. Ultimately, we recommend investing in a piece that you like rather than something that fits the recent trend.
