The purpose of a rug is manifold. It brings in touches of
color and personality to the space it occupies, adds comfort to rough flooring
and aids in defining the spatial layout. Since rugs take up a good amount of
surface space, finding the right design that complements your interiors is
essential. Whether you’re on the hunt for a kitchen rug, living room rug or an
outdoor rug, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Size is perhaps one of the decisions buyers grapple with
most when considering a new rug. While there are many traditional rug sizes,
it’s ultimately up to you to decide exactly what you need for your unique
space. Assess your furniture and take measurements to determine what would work
best from both a functional and aesthetic standpoint.
Material is another element that must be considered when
purchasing a new rug. Certain materials are more durable than others, so it is
important to identify high traffic areas, as rugs in these places will be
subject to more wear and tear, dirt and other elements. For high-traffic areas
such as entryways, sisal rugs and jute rugs tend to be good choices. If you
have children or pets, this also plays an important role in determining which
rug to choose. For instance, luxurious materials like silk don’t tend to mesh
as well with little ones and furry friends.

piece in a room, make sure you pick something that accurately reflects your
