Nothing ties the elements of a room together like a beautiful rug. A rug can make a cold room inviting and cozy, create comfort, define different functional spaces, add pattern and color where none existed before. You have endless possibilities to consider whether your style is ultramodern, contemporary, or traditional.

However, selecting the right rug can be a bit overwhelming; texture, pattern, shape, and size are all the variables to consider, you also need to consider whether it will clash or complement the existing furniture.

What size and shape do you require? 

Choosing the right area rug is important in making your room feel comfortable. Instead of floating in a place, you should use a rug to express the space. However, a rug that is too big will look clumsy while those that are too small will make your room look smaller. Fortunately, you don’t need to be an expert to avoid poor rug sizing.

Also, consider the shape of the rug. For instance, you don’t have to just limit yourself to rectangles rugs; square rugs can complement a modern room and look equally good under a pub-style table. Also, oval, octagonal, and round rugs work well; you just have to be creative.

Pattern and color

Think long and hard about the pattern and color when the time comes to select an area rug. Choosing a rug with patterns can be a great way to add interest and color to a room with neutral walls and furniture. Likewise, a solid, neutral color can be a nice way to calm an assorted room. Also, keep in mind that it is easier for a patterned rug to hide spills and dirt while a solid one is likely to show stains.

What function does it serve? 

Two of the most significant factors to consider when choosing an area rug that you will love to live with are your style and lifestyle. You will want to make sure that your rug holds up to your lifestyle because a rug is meant to last for a long time. If you have pets or kids, a white rug with high stacks is probably not the best option.

A pattern flat weave rug that covers stains is worth considering if you expect the rug to deal with high foot traffic because it will be easier to keep clean and maintain. However, if you want to create a sense of luxury and comfort, a softer rug with a higher pile will probably do the trick.


Before you make a purchase, think about how you want the rug to feel. Wool rugs can add softness and warmth while natural materials like jute and sisal are slightly rough. You can also consider silk, the material is beautiful and soft, but it is tough to clean and also expensive. Take these materials into consideration when shopping for area rugs.
