Designer Trick : Selecting the Right Rug

There are multiple things to consider when choosing the scale of a rug… what size is the room, what does the floor plan look like, what are the traffic paths throughout the space, etc.


Setup Your Workspace


Being realistic about how the space is used will help you hone in on the appropriate material. For example, a rug in a high traffic space should be extra durable.



Once you have a good understanding of how the rug will be used in your home, you can begin to narrow down the appropriate material.


Setup Your Workspace


Use stylistic elements to your advantage while keeping contrast in mind. If your furniture or drapery is bold or patterned, maybe a neutral or solid rug would look best.


Setup Your Workspace


First, measure your room or the area where you’ll be installing a rug. Next, write down a minimum and maximum ideal rug size.
