How To Choose The Right Rug: A Brief Guide


Rugs in themselves can be considered saviors. If you feel that a room has everything that it needs but it is still missing that “amazing” look, then rugs might be the thing that will complete that room. Rugs are able to change the look and mood of a room. They don’t only have aesthetic purposes, but they provide physical benefits as well. A rug or a carpet can easily warm up your room and also reduce noise by a whole lot.

Now that you know all the benefits of getting a rug, it’s time to actually get one. Well, this part is not so simple. There are a lot of factors that can be taken into consideration while choosing a carpet. From their need for professional carpet cleaners to size to color and everything else. If you are looking for a guide that will help you figure out all of this, then you are at the right place. Here’s how you can choose the right rug for your home.

Size does matter

Carpets are available in very different sizes, shapes, and colors. Specifically while choosing the size of the carpet, you can consider many factors. If you choose the wrong one, they might end up deteriorating the look of the room rather than maintaining it. Too small of a rug is easily lost in a big space while a rug too big might end up drowning the room’s character.

So, before you choose your rug size, make sure you have done your work. You first need to measure the size of the space where you are thinking of placing the rug. Take a measuring tape, and carefully outline the boundary. When you have a number in front of you, it’ll be much easier to choose one that fits your space.

Build your taste

As mentioned, choosing a rug is not easy. Now that we have the right size, it now comes down to the aesthetic of the carpet. The aesthetic of the carpet directly correlates to the aesthetic of the room. So we’ll need to analyze the space first.

Initially, what you should do is try to remember the room from memory. This gives you an idea of the theme that your room follows. Once you have that down, go to your room and carefully examine the room trying to look for the aesthetics that the room is following. If you feel that the room is minimalistic and modern, then black and white carpets are the ones for you. However, if the room is your personal office or something of greater value than a living room, then heirloom carpets, specifically Persian carpets, might increase the value of the room even more.

The noise factor

Rugs are very good at reducing the noise in your space. If your room has echo, a rug will definitely help in reducing the echo to a minimum. If you are placing the carpets in a living room make sure they are sound resistant.


Now that you have all the tips on choosing the right rug for you, it’s time that you go out and get one. Don’t be nervous, you can always ask for advice from employees in choosing the one for your room.
