Rugs offer an inimitable chic factor for your home décor. Whether you have wooden flooring, tile, or wall-to-wall carpet, having a stylish rug to your interior will not only protect your floors but will also bestow a sense of charisma and charm to your interior décor. But the main question is how do you pick out the right rug for your living space? What size is the best fit? What color or texture suits your interior décor style? Read on to know how to choose the right area rug for your home.

Make sure to consider the following points before picking out an area rug for your home.

1. The Purpose of your Rug:

Do you want to place your rug in the children’s room or near the bathroom? Is it going to be used as a complementing décor piece in your dining room? Think where you want your rug and then decide upon the material.

2. The Material of your Rug:

Choosing the right type of material is an essential task, as it determines the texture it displays and the amount of comfort it provides. If you want a floor covering which has easy maintenance, go for flat weaves such as Sisal Rugs. If you want a glamorous appeal in your room, choose Silk and Viscose material which is sure to add a certain shimmer to your room. But if you have pets that bring dirt and dust to the room, your silk rug will start showing wear. If you want floor covering that is durable, easy to maintain then Polypropylene and Wool are your best bet.

3. The Size of your Rug:

The main point of consideration while choosing a carpet or rug for your home is the size! If you are looking to buy a rug for your bedroom, make sure to consider its size in accordance with your bed. If your bed is not placed against the wall, it should clearly have 36 inches of space on each side so that you can make your way around it. Stay within that border, and just measure the width and length of the place where your wish to place your rug. You can also go for multiple area rugs if you have a larger bedroom that has the space for the seating area, vanity, or desk.
