The right area rug can be a vital, and even an essential, part of a room’s design. It can be the focal point of the room, and it also can help bring the entire design together. Consequently, choosing an area rug is an important decision and, since there are so many options available, a difficult decision as well. Fortunately, the professionals at Oshawa Carpet One Floor & Home in Oshawa, ON are here to help!  

Function

Some of the most important factors to consider when choosing an area rug have to do with the rug’s function. Do I need a rug with added comfort?  Do I need to protect the floor from heavy foot traffic? Will I need extra stain and soil resistance? These are all important questions that should be answered at the beginning of the process.

Area rugs can serve many benefits in a room. They are warm and comfortable underfoot, so they can be helpful in family rooms in which children will sit and play. Wool rugs will be most practical since they are soft and durable. Also, area rugs can protect the flooring underneath. Nylon rugs are best for protection because they are stain resistant and wear well in high traffic.   

Style


Another factor to consider is style. What size rug do I need? Do I need a specific colour or design? Should the rug simply accent the design or be the focal point? An area rug will need to fit into your overall design in order to truly be beneficial.

Area rugs can have different surface textures that contribute to their overall appearances. Silk rugs, for example, add high lustre, so they add a bit of luxury to a room. To add, area rugs can offer complex designs and colour schemes for extra uniqueness in a room. Sisal rugs are especially versatile when it comes to looks, and polyester rugs can add brilliant colour.
