Five tips to finding the perfect rug | Rugs for Sale

Published by Danny on 12th May 2015

Finding the perfect rug to complement the décor of your living space is always a delicate task, one wrong move can throw off the entire look of the room. Here at our online rug store, we pride ourselves on our impeccable customer service and with that in mind we have compiled five tips any savvy shopper must know when searching for the perfect rug.

  • 1.Always choose easy clean materials.

There is nothing worse than a food/wine stain that has taken up permanent residence in your incredibly expensive, incredibly hard to clean rug. So unless your house is an accident free zone, steer towards rugs made of pure natural fibres such as wools and cottons.

  • 2.Always err on the side of too big.

Better to have a little extra than not enough.

  • 3.Always try to match the shape of the rug to the shape of the table.

It’s logical, right? Round dining tables look great with a round rug under them and large rectangle dining tables are best complemented by rectangular rugs. Same goes for any coffee tables too.

  • 4.Consider the pattern.

If you are planning on putting more than one rug in the same room, be cautious of the patterns. It is vital the rugs do not clash. Choose colours and patterns that complement each other. Brighter colours tend to work better together in larger spaces.

  • 5.Go for quality.

Bargain basement prices can be all too tempting when you’re working with a budget but go for quality over price every time. After all, you get what you pay for.
