Area Rugs

Welcome to our area rugs category! Before you consider buying, let us help you answer a few questions first.
What is the purpose of area rugs?
Area rugs are both practical and decorative. An area rug helps bring a room together, making it look complete by creating a warm and comforting space and finalizing the color theme. They’re also responsible for separating areas from one another, such as keeping your living room and dining room separate. And what better way to make sure your floors don’t get scratched than with rugs that have beautiful designs and colors. And they’re a comfortable place to land your feet on.
Should area rugs match?
They don’t need to match. You can mix different area rugs together, just make sure the color schemes don’t clash too much.
For example, if you have a big room and want to divide up the conversation areas, you can use two different rugs. Just make sure at least they’re related to one another by color or pattern.
Does area rug need to be centered in room?
The area rug doesn’t have to be the center of the room but you should center the rug with your furniture. For example, center the rug in the middle of your coffee table or dining table, so it’s even on all sides. If you have a focal point like a TV stand or sofa, try to have your rug centered on it.
What area rug material is the best?
While not one area rug material is best, there are a few that you can keep in mind. Wool is the most common fabric used for rugs, and it’s known for its durability and softness, making it easy to clean with good resistance to spills and stains. Synthetic rugs are made of man-made fibers like nylon, polypropylene, and viscose. They’re easy to clean and family-friendly, making them perfect for high traffic areas in your home. Polyester rugs are also highly durable and resistant to wear and tear. So if you’re looking for area rugs that are generally easy to clean, keep an eye out for outdoor rugs and medium and low pile rugs. Shaggy rugs are a little more difficult to clean but they help bring elegance and texture to any room.
Now, how do you clean area rugs?
This depends on the material of the rug you’re going to buy. We will share with you a few general instructions to keep in mind but if your rug’s tag is provided with specific instructions, make sure to follow those.
1. Spot clean spills as soon as possible to avoid permanent stains.
2. Routinely vacuum your rug on both sides to remove dirt and dust.
3. Use a soft brush to apply safe carpet shampoo and rinse.
What are standard area rug sizes?
Standard rug sizes range from as small 3’ x 5’ and 4’ x 6’ to as big as 10’ x 13’ and 12’ x 15’ but the most popular rug sizes are 5x8 area rugs, 8x10 area rugs, and 9x12 area rugs, which you’ll most likely use in bedrooms, dining rooms, and living rooms. Look out for specific sizes when you start your rug shopping process.
What area rug size do I need?
Whether you are looking for a large area rug or a small area rug, you need to make sure you’re using the right size. A lot of people make the mistake of buying a rug that is too small. You want your new rug to fit under all the key pieces of furniture in the room. If you can’t do this, at least get an area rug that’s big enough to fit under the front legs of your furniture.
Are rug pads necessary?
Once you pick out your new area rugs, we recommend pairing them with rug pads. This is because a rug pad protects your floor and keeps your rug safely in place with a non-slip grip material. Plus, if you have a heavy piece of furniture on top of your rug, the rug pad prevents the floor from getting damaged. Just make sure the rug pad you choose is not larger than your rug.
Now that we have walked you through some of these questions, we wish you luck as you explore our wide selection of area rugs!
