4 simple tips for choosing the right rug | Alyshaan fine rugs


great-room-with-one-oversize-rugDo you want to design your living space with rugs but are at a loss? Don’t worry! Here are four simple and easy design ideas to help you choose the best rug for your needs.


  1. Layout of the ground– Always select your rug based on your floor layout and the spaces you want to fill. Different layouts work for different spaces, but choose depending on whether you have a classic, floating, or other arrangement.
  1. Room traffic– Depending on whether the room is heavily used (high traffic) or less used (low traffic), you can determine the type of carpet material that is needed. Remember that sturdy materials like wool work best for high-traffic Areas of the home (such as Hallways), and Bedrooms are less likely to see heavy traffic. So choose your rug material accordingly.
  1. Choice(s) of rug color and patternArea rugs come in a multitude of colors and patterns, styles and types (see Alyshaan’s Fine Rugsonline inventoryof over 4500 rugs to learn MOre). Choose the color and pattern of the rug based on the existing color palette and patterns of the room in which they will be placed. So if you have a Living Room with a lot of color already added, then you would benefit more from a neutral or solid color Area rug for balance. Similarly, if you have a neutral Bedroom, you can always add a statement with a fine patterned rug.
  1. Foundation –Area rugs are an investment and as such need to be protected against wear and tear from heavy foot traffic, as well as potential slipping. One of the best ways to ensure the durability of your rug and prevent accidents is by using a rug pad. This serves as the underlay for your rug, adding a comfortable layer for extra cushioning and also protecting the underside of your precious rug.

So go ahead and try these ideas the next time you don’t know how to choose a rug for your home!
