Tips for Finding the Perfect Rug

Incorporating a stylish rug is a great way to fill a large space, add texture and patterns to an otherwise plain room, or tie various design elements together. Furthermore, rugs are some of the least expensive accessories that have the power to transform the living room furniture entirely.

Have you been thinking about adding a modern rug to your home? There are a few designer tricks that you can use to make sure you choose the right accessory. Below, our team at Furniture Extreme has provided a list of tips to follow to find the perfect rug.

How to Find the Perfect Rug in Calgary Furniture Stores

  • Avoid covering the entire floor

One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners make when purchasing a rug is choosing the wrong size. If your rug covers the entire floor without leaving an ample amount of separation from the walls, it will overwhelm the room, making it appear smaller than it is. Choosing a rug that is too small for the space, however, could look awkward and out of place. As a rule of thumb, we recommend surrounding your rug with a border of approximately 2 feet of floor space. Options like our Abanett rug come in medium and large sizes for your convenience.

  • Pair interesting patterns with block colours

Furniture stores in Calgary offer accessories in a variety of fun designs such as our Broox or Cailey rug. However, if you have more than a couple of different patterns in one room, they are sure to clash. Avoid this problem by combining a statement rug with block coloured furniture or vice versa. Many of the couches at our Calgary furniture store feature interesting designs that could be paired with something neutral like the Caci 5 x 7 rug.

  • Consider practicalities

Depending on your lifestyle and the number of people living in your home, not every rug will be practical. For example, if you have small children, it may be difficult to maintain a white rug without staining it. Additionally, some rugs are designed to be placed outdoors, while others should only ever be used indoors. Before you fall in love with an impractical rug, speak to a team member at your local Calgary furniture store about your specifications and get that right match for the living room, bedroom and dining room furniture.
