Follow our simple steps:
Choose a layout and measure for your rug based on the space you’d like to fill. Be sure to measure the floor dimensions carefully and leave an uncovered gap of 2 to 3 feet from the wall.
Hallways with high foot traffic need durable flooring, while bedrooms and dining room rugs are less susceptible to heavy wear. Natural fiber types, that we use, are more luxurious, durable and expensive than the synthetic ones.
When you buy a hand-knotted rug, this means that a skilled weaver individually tied every knot, this creating a one-of-a-kind handmade rug. That is what makes hand-knotted rugs so special, and that is what makes them so much more expensive than all other types of area rugs.
Tufting, a technique that involves inserting yarn through a woven base to create a pile, is a common way to achieve precise patterns. The pile can be looped or cut, creating subtle texture in different combinations. Tufted rugs last longer in lower-traffic areas.
Overdyed + Distressed Rugs
Overdyed and distressed rugs use a cycle of dyeing, washing or distressing to achieve a one-of-a-kind finish. During this artisanal process, colors blend and textures soften for a vintage feel that’s good for moderate foot traffic.
Pattern and colours
Determine if you want to punch up the room or softly blend in.
Neutrals: A neutral rug forms a solid foundation when you want to layer on rich textures, patterns or colors. Think of it as the canvas for the rest of your room.
Playful Patterns: If your furniture is a solid color or neutral, try a patterned rug. For foolproof color coordination, match the secondary color in the rug to your sofa or key furniture.
Solid Colors: A monochromatic rug complements patterned furniture by grounding it in a primary palette. In a living room, try matching the rug to the secondary color in a patterned sofa.
If you’re placing an area rug down on an already carpeted floor, you can go with a woven rug or one with a shorter pile. On a hardwood floor, you may want more cushioning that comes with a higher pile.
Area rugs with borders on the edges can be visually confining if the furniture is not placed just so, which can throw off the balance.
