How to choose the perfect rug

With so much choice, how do you choose the best rug to make the most of your space? There are a few things to take into consideration.

First of all, think about the layout of your home. It is worth bearing in mind where the rug will be located. Will it be a focal point in a formal living room or a comfy place people can sit while watching TV or playing board games? Next, what is your personal style? Are you the type of person who likes to regularly change their soft furnishings and colour schemes? If so, a less expensive rug is a better choice for you, otherwise, a high quality rug is worth your investment.

Keeping your new rug clean is another point for consideration. How easy will it be to clean the rug you have chosen? Can you do it yourself or will you have to take it to a professional? In a home with pets, children or multiple activities going on, a rug is going to get dirty.

High pile or flat weave

High-pile or shag carpeting can look great in a living room, but if you love to entertain or are always on the go, a flat weave or low pile rug is a better choice as frequently used spaces require rugs that can withstand spilt drinks and muddy shoes. A flatweave will reduce the look of wear and will be easier to keep clean.

They might not be as glamorous as a statement rug in a living room, but entry rugs are a practical way to add a nonslip surface to an entry. Plus they serve as both a place to take off your shoes – protecting your precious carpet or flooring! – and they add a pop of colour to a bare floor. These rugs work best if they are flat weave or have a very low pile.

At Frank’s The Flooring Store, we have 12,000 different rugs for you to choose from, in all shapes and sizes. Pop into a store today – we can advise you on the perfect one for your room!
