How to choose the best area rug for your room

When there are so many to choose from, how does one decide? Think through some of the criteria below to help you pick an area rug that works for you.

How is the space decorated and where will the rug go? Most rugs will be put in a room that already contains other things. Unless it is an empty hallway, you have couches, tables, beds, curtains, wall art, that all have to work with the area rug you introduce into the room. Can you put a turquoise rug in an all grey room? Of course, decorating can be as individual as you are, but look for styles that support your overall decorative scheme.

What features are a must-have? Do you need a very durable synthetic rug for a high traffic area? Are there people in the house with sensitivities that need an all-cotton or organic rug? Must it be made from wool? Do you have to have a low pile rug that doors can clear? What about something that can get wet? Or something that resists mold and mildew for a basement? Where the rug is going will help you determine some of the features that will work best.
