Thinking of choosing a rug but don’t know where to start looking?
There are a fair few things to think about before you can start choosing a rug. You need to figure out where it’s going to go, what size you’ll need and what colour you want. But you should also think about your current flooring situation before deciding.
The type of flooring will determine what features you should be looking for in a rug. Different styles, colours and fibres will work better on different floors. This might determine the thickness of rug you choose. You might also want to think about how busy the space is. You should consider a different material rug for a busy path than you would for a space that isn’t often walked through.
This applies to all types of flooring, including stone, carpet, tiles, laminate, and hardwood. Unsure on what to look for? What rug should you get if you have a tiled floor compared to a laminate one?!
