Selecting a rug – good tips to remember when shopping rugs.

Consider the space and needs before selecting a rug. It is recommended to select a rug that is large enough to allow partial placement underneath pieces of furniture, such as a sofa or bed. Especially a rug to be placed underneath a dining table should be large enough to also accommodate the dining table chairs and moving them. Corridor and hall runners typically have a standard width of 80 cm.

Those aiming for a harmonious ambiance should select a rug that matches the colour scheme of the rest of the home. On the other hand, a statement rug can be the focal point of the whole space. Often, trends impact rug selection. As a rule of thumb, a light-coloured rug creates a sense of space while a darker one introduces a sense of character and depth. The colours of the
rug and floor should be in contrast with each other.

Estimate the level of wear in the space. A hall runner needs to be made of a more durable material than, for example, a bedroom rug. It is also good to observe all individuals and situations in life, children, allergies and pets when selecting a rug. Older people, for instance, appreciate light-weight rugs that are easier to move about.
