Principles of choosing the right rug for the home.

1- Material and texture of the area Rug

The rug should coordinate with the use of the room, considering the amount of traffic in the room. Durable area Rugs are good in high-traffic rooms and decorative the Rugs in low-traffic areas. For example, the area Rug with a bit of fluff is suitable for a child’s room. The lint that The area Rugs scatter in the space may cause allergies in children and damage their respiratory system.

For centuries, the area Rugs have been made from natural fibers like wool and cotton by hand, but synthetic fibers like polyproline and nylon are power loom and made by weaving machines.

The area Rugs with natural fibers

The area Rugs with natural fibers are woven from cotton, wool, hemp, and sisal products and are durable.

Woolen The area Rugs create a feeling of comfort and warmth in the environment. These fibers are durable and easy to clean, but their price is relatively high and requires professional cleaning.

Cotton is softer than wool and has a wide range of colors but is less flexible than other fibers.

Sisal is a coarse fiber and is suitable for busy spaces. These fibers have good moisture resistance.

  The area Rug with synthetic fibers

The area Rugs made from synthetic fibers are less expensive, and they include a wide range of colors and are very similar to woolen the area Rugs. However, they are not comparable in quality to natural fibers, are not produced from sustainable sources, and may change color over time when exposed to direct sunlight.

Acrylic area Rugs are suitable for humid spaces such as bathrooms because they are resistant to moisture. Acrylic area Rugs are highly washable and do not lose their beauty when exposed to water and sun. For this reason, it is a better choice for crowded houses, especially for children.

Polypropylene area Rugs are suitable for spaces such as the entrance hall and dining room because they have high resistance and do not absorb liquids.

Nylon rugs are incredible for busy spaces because they are durable and easy to clean.

Polyester is one of the cheapest fibers. This Area Rug is a good choice for short-term use and covers the spaces.

2. The area Rug color

The area Rug color should be in harmony with the color of the sofa and curtains. Besides,  setting a proper balance between your area Rug and the couch and the curtain is better to choose The area Rug first. Then buy the sofa and the curtain

 If you are a large family or have a small child, choosing a The area Rug with a crowded design and a dark color is better. Otherwise light-colored The area Rugs are very suitable.

The color of the area Rug should contrast with the floor of the house. For example, if the flooring is light, choose a dark The area Rug, and if the flooring is dark, choose a light The area Rug.

For example, instead of a couch, you can coordinate the design and role of the sofa cushion with The area Rug. Or this coordination can be with the curtain of the house. The area Rug’s color must not be the same as the color of the sofa or curtain. Of course, please pay attention to the fact that it does not discourage the space of the house from setting the furniture.

Light colors are suitable for small rooms, and dark colors are ideal for large rooms. White, cream and gray are proper for small spaces.

Colors allocate into three categories: warm, calm, and neutral. Warm colors such as red and orange make the space exciting and friendly, suitable for the living room and kitchen. Cool and calm colors such as blue and green are ideal for the bedroom, and neutral colors can be used in any space and easily set.

3. The area Rug size and arrangement

Before buying a rug, it is good to know the size of the room. The carpet’s layout and appropriate space should be determined and designed.

One of the basic principles of an area Rug arrangement is to choose the area Rug’s dimensions according to the room’s area. The area Rug’s size should be such that it is 2 to 4 feet away from the walls. This distance can be reduced up to one foot from it in a small space. Try to observe these distances approximately.

Do not choose small rugs for the living room. Choose the rug, so your feet are on the rug when you sit on the sofas. Sofas should be placed on the area Rug so that their front base must be on the area Rug. Or the bases of the couch are tangential to the edge of The area Rug.

Choosing a rug for the dining table at least 2 to 4 feet larger than the table’s dimensions is a good size for the dining table, depending on your room’s size. This way, all chairs are on the rug when you pull back the chair.

Choose a bedroom rug so that your feet are on the rug when you wake up and feel the rug’s warmth on your feet. The area Rug should be large enough to see at least 50 to 60 cm of The area Rug around the bed. If it is less than this, the beauty of your area Rug will not be visible.

You can use several area Rugs in the living room to separate the spaces. For example, separate the dining area from the living room. If the living room is small, a large rug will suffice.

The area Rugs are available in different sizes, shapes, rectangles, rounds, and squares. Note that circular rugs do not fit into any space. A small round rug for small bedrooms and kitchens can be a good option. However, ensure that a round rug will make the room more beautiful before buying.

4- The area Rug design

The pattern and design of the area Rug should follow the general style of space decoration design. For example, choose a contemporary rug if you have a modern house. If you have a classic decoration, choose a traditional rug. You can also select The area Rugs according to the connection and coordination of home components.

Choose a simple the area Rug design if you have furniture or wallpaper with a crowded design. Otherwise, the house will look cluttered. Or, if the area Rug is patterned and crowded, choose simple furniture.

The area Rug and floor designs are contrasting. If the floor and The area Rug are patterned, the home environment looks crowded.

Traditional or classic rugs make the environment warmer. Modern, The area Rugs with simple designs are suitable if you like a simple and calm atmosphere.

If you want the room to look bigger, choose a rug with a large design in the center to make the room look more extensive than it is.

The area Rugs with a central pattern in the dining room would not be a good idea because their design hides under the table. Therefore, choosing a rug with a simple center, a pattern around it, or a repeating pattern on its entire surface would work better.
