WHAT SIZE RUG DO I NEED?

Before buying a rug, be sure to measure your space carefully. Use a tape measure-twice, to be safe-as guessing can easily lead to mistakes. You want your rug to not only fit the space, but also make the most impact possible. Here are some helpful tips you can use throughout your home.

DINING ROOM

Leave enough room so that the rug extends beyond the back legs of a chair when someone is seated. Otherwise, your chairs may wobble on the uneven surface-not the most comfortable dining experience. A 240 x 320 rug is the most common size for dining rooms, but be sure to measure your space and the area around the table with chairs pulled out.

LIVING & FAMILY ROOMS

Here, there's really no right or wrong way to place your rug. It's all about preference. The bigger the rug, the more it'll pull the other elements of the room together. Use the coffee table, or center of the room, as the primary focal point and plan outward from there. These rugs are normally 160x230 or 200x300 to go under the lounge suite.

BEDROOM

Rugs are a great way to add extra softness and soundproofing to the bedroom. Simply choose a rug the fits the width of your bed. Or, if you're looking for something larger, find one that will cover the space beneath your nightstands, too. These rugs are normally 200x300 or 240x320 in size.

KITCHEN, HALLWAY & FOYER

Look for runners and round area rugs to fill the narrower spaces and nooks throughout your home. Remember to use a tape measure first, so that there are no surprises once you get your rug on the floor. Normally 120x170 in size

 

HOW DO I CLEAN & CARE MY RUG?

You've done your research, measured your room and picked the materials you want. What's next for your new rug? Caring for it! Thankfully, it doesn't take a ton of work to keep your rug in tiptop shape. But here are some things to remember.

SPILLS, SPOTS & SUNLIGHT

Clean spills immediately by blotting the affected area. Be sure not wipe or rub the spills, as this may worsen the stain and fray the yarns. If possible, keep your rug out of direct sunlight, which can cause some rugs to fade.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE & STORAGE

Shake or vacuum both sides of your rug regularly. Rotating the rug every six months will prevent uneven wear from foot traffic and furniture weight. When storing, roll up the rug with the pattern facing out and place it in a dry, well-ventilated space. For extra protection, wrap the rug in a breathable cloth, rather than an airtight bag.

PADRUGS

Not just for slippage, a rug pad can help preserve the life of your rug. Rug pads protect the rug from everyday wear by giving it a soft, supportive foundation that keeps it in place. Most rug pads can also be cut with scissors to match the exact size and shape of your rug.
