How to Choose the Right Rug
Before diving into the actual common rug sizes and their appropriate uses, let’s first briefly discuss some significant components one must consider if they want to find their ideal rug.
Size Matters: Why You Should Measure Your Space
Before you begin shopping for a rug, you want to take the time to measure your space correctly. A proper measurement will help you get an idea for what common rug sizes will and won’t work for you. For instance, you may think you want a runner for the front of your Queen bed, but upon taking your measurements realize you don’t quite have the length for that!
Getting a measurement of the space you intend for the rug to cover will ensure that whatever rug you buy truly enhances your space. The last thing you want is to eyeball a space and assume the rug will lay the way you want it only to find out it’s too long or too short. Rug placement needs to be taken very seriously to ensure all other elements in the room (such as furniture) look their best as well. So, carefully measure your space to make shopping easier and avoid any future fiascos!
Don’t Be Afraid to Seek Out New Inspiration
There are often more ways to place a rug in a room than most people could ever imagine. As such, consider checking out your favorite interior design magazine or simply hopping on site’s like Pinterest to find new inspiration. Who knows? You might discover a new way to lay a rug in a particular room.
Consider Colors & Textures Already in the Room
This next tip is pretty much a no brainer, but it still deserves to be mentioned because it is that important! Look around the space you intend the rug to go in and consider the color palette – is it warm, cool, or neutral? Could it benefit from a pop of color or should it be toned down with something more neutral? Taking account of the color scheme ahead of time will give you a more laser-focused perspective when it comes time to shop for your rug.
