1. What kind of space are you working with?

If you are looking to find the perfect rug for your Living room, you want to invest in a quality rug because that’s where the family will be gathering for the most part. A concern some people may have with hard (resilient) flooring is that the space won’t feel warm enough. A rug is the perfect way to warm up any room, accentuate certain furniture pieces, and keep a cleaner space.

If you’re looking for the perfect rug to tie your Dining room set all together, the material of the rug will take priority. Dinners can sometimes be messy and you don’t want a rug that will easily stain or be too difficult to clean.

In general, a good rule of thumb is to find a rug that mimics the shape of your dining table to create visual symmetry in your space. If your dining table is round, a slighter wider round rug will frame the space perfectly.

 If your Bathroom is in need of a rug to avoid slippery floors after shows or cold surfaces in the early morning, texture is something big to consider. You want something soft with some sort of cushion for standing while keeping in mind moisture.

The fabric of the rugs in bathrooms matter especially due to the fact that moisture and water could easily become an issue. 

Bathrooms are usually the smaller rooms in one’s home so it’s important to choose rugs that don’t overwhelm the space and make it appear smaller than it actually is

If you want to revamp your Bedroom without shelling out a ton of money on new furniture, adding a new rug can completely change the room’s dynamic. This is where you can get really creative and have fun with textures, patterns, shapes, and placement!
