Rug Size and Fitting Guide

Rug Size and Fitting Guide

Your rooms need a rug – an area rug can enhance the look of any room and complement any style. You introduce a sense of luxury and transform a room with the right piece.

Choose a rug as you would a piece of art. There are four major factors you need to take into account when looking for an area rug; color, size, design, and price.

Color is the most important element. The colors in your rug, whether you want to complement or contrast the rest of your furniture, make an impact. Traditionally, Persian rugs had a limited color range, however, these days, Persian and Oriental rugs come in a variety of stylish colors.

Size refers to both the size and the shape of your rug. Are you looking for a rectangular rug that covers the entire floor? Do you want a small, circular rug to be placed underneath a clear table? Did you want an area rug or a runner? Where do you plan on installing your new rug? Are you open to resizing and reshaping a rug? Take some time to consider what kind of rug your room will need.

Area rugs come in a variety of designs, and this can be quite overwhelming. Consider meeting with a rug expert or an interior designer, or perhaps looking through magazines for design inspiration. On the other hand, you may not even have a design preference – you just want a rug that looks good.

Price is always an important factor. Rugs of various quality levels will be priced accordingly. Beware of deals that are too good to be true, as a dirt-cheap silk rug may turn out to be synthetic silk instead! Although the price of area rugs may be daunting to first time buyers, it may help to consider a rug to be an investment. A well-made area rug will last for many years, and it is not uncommon to come across antique rugs that still look excellent.
