Choose the Right Size:

The size of your area rug is crucial for achieving a balanced look. In living rooms, ensure that the front legs of your furniture are resting on the rug to anchor the space. In dining areas, opt for a rug that extends beyond the table edges, allowing chairs to remain comfortably on the rug even when pulled out. Bedrooms often benefit from rugs placed at the foot of the bed or on each side to add a cozy feel. Pictured is our Adras rug.

Select the Perfect Style:

Consider your existing decor and the overall vibe you want to create when choosing a rug style. For a classic and timeless look, opt for traditional patterns or solid-colored rugs that seamlessly blend with any setting. Modern-eclectic and contemporary spaces can benefit from bold geometric patterns or abstract designs that make a statement. Natural fiber rugs, such as jute or sisal, bring an organic and earthy touch to bohemian or coastal-inspired interiors. Pictured is our Mezzo Oyster rug.

Harmonize Colors and Patterns:

When selecting an area rug, pay attention to the color scheme and patterns present in your room. Harmonize the colors by choosing a rug that complements or contrasts with your existing furniture and decor. If your room features bold patterns, opt for a more subdued rug to create balance. Alternatively, if you have neutral furniture and walls, an area rug with vibrant colors and intricate patterns can serve as a captivating focal point. Pictured is our Rayas Rosewater Rug.

Maintenance and Care:

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your area rugs looking their best. Vacuum your rugs frequently to remove dirt and dust particles that can accumulate over time. Attend to spills and stains promptly by blotting them gently with a clean cloth or using appropriate rug cleaners. To prevent uneven wear, rotate your rugs occasionally. If possible, avoid placing area rugs in areas exposed to direct sunlight to prevent fading. Pictured is our Lynx Frost Rug.
