When it comes to rugs, there are a million different designs, colors, and styles. Even within the same family, different members might have slightly different preferences and needs. The key is to find suitable custom rugs for your home. The better you know your space and furniture, the easier it will be to find the perfect rug for your room.
Now that you know the highlights let's dive into how to find that perfect rug for your home.
Durability Of The Custom Rug
The first thing you'll want to consider when selecting the right style, color, and material for your home is durability. You don't want to spend all your money on rugs that will fall apart after two months or even two years. To keep your custom rugs with you for the long haul, consider purchasing solid, heavy-duty rugs. These types of rugs are more than capable of standing up to everyday wear and tear. Solid, heavy-duty rugs are perfect for anyone who does a lot of heavy liftings, such as architects and carpenters.
Pick The Right Location For Your Rug
The location of your custom rug will have a big impact on the life of your rug. It must fit in with your room's other furniture and decorative features. If your rug is placed in the middle of the room, it will draw the eye towards it, making it look larger than it is. Placing it against a wall, on the other hand, will make the rug appear smaller, which is what you want for a large room. If your room is long and narrow, a square or rectangular rug looks great when placed against a wall. If you have a large family, a family room, or another room where you want to be able to comfortably gather as a family, a square or circular rug is the perfect solution.
Ascertain The Needed Dimensions Of The Rug
After you've determined the location of your rug and the space it will cover, it's time to get down to brass tacks. The first thing you'll want to do is determine the correct measured dimensions of your room. You'll want to know your room's length, width, and height so you can select the proper size rug for the space. It's important to remember that rugs are stretched when you hang them, so the longer the rug, the thicker the shake will be.
Try To Get Hold Of Samples
Once you've chosen the perfect rug for your room, it's time to get it. That's where samples come into play. Custom rug companies use samples to show prospective customers what their rugs look like in different rooms. You can request a sample of any rug and should do so at least once before committing to a purchase. Samples are generally free and come in a variety of finishes and sizes. You should also get plenty of impressions of how the rug looks in your space.
Consider Your Style
One of the most important things you can do is get to know your style — where you like to spend the most time, what type of furniture you have, and what type of clothing you like to wear. Your living space should feel comfortable and homey but also modern and sleek. You don't necessarily want to stick with a classic black, white, or red for the rest of your life. Your living space should feel like a second home — not a museum piece.
Make Use Of Rug Pads
Pads make adding a custom rug to your flooring a lot easier. Instead of hard floorings such as hardwood or tile, you can use a rug pad to cover the smooth bare floor. This will make it look like a rug is covering your floor, which will add charm to your home.
Make Sure That The Rug Looks Are In Sync
The last thing you want to do before picking out a custom rug is to choose the wrong style or size. It's important to ensure that your custom rug's color, fabric, and design align with your style. If you have a particular style for your custom rug, begin by going through detailed designs to see what you like. Once you've got a handle on what you like, you'll be better able to choose the perfect color for your room.
