Taking proper care of your rug will prolong its life and appearance. Vacuum your rug regularly to remove loose soil, taking special care when vacuuming fringe and edges.
Area rugs do much more than simply cover floors. A well-chosen area rug can help define your home’s space and solidify your overall theme. Perhaps you need a little splash of color to really bring the room together or you want to find something that will accent the sofa. Maybe you need an area rug to cover up that hideous stain on the floor that you cannot get rid of!
Like carpet, area rugs are made out of either synthetic or natural materials. The most common natural material is wool, though other natural materials are used, including silk rugs, cotton and bamboo. Synthetic rug materials include polypropylene and nylon. As with carpet, rugs made from natural materials are generally of greater value than those made of synthetic fibers.

When looking to buy the perfect area rug for your home, there are a few things to consider. Here are a few commonly asked questions:
Q. How do I find the perfect area rug?
A. To buy area rugs, it's best to use the filters on the left to narrow your selection. If you're looking for the popular 5' x 7' rug, for example, you can hit the 5' to 8' filter to see only the rugs that are the right size for your space. Similarly, you can filter by the colors of the area rug, shape, pattern, material and more.
Choose from a variety of different sizes, colors, styles and patterns sure to blend in nicely with your home décor.
Q. How do I know what size area rug to buy?
A. First, you should consider the size and the shape of your room. If you have a round room with circular furniture, a round rug would be right for you. If you have all square furniture in a square room, a square area rug is best for you.
From here you want to make sure the rug is big enough to be placed on the ground and not completely covered by any furniture that's placed on top of it. When in doubt, order a rug that's a little bit bigger to make sure your sofa, sitting chairs, bed, or any other piece of furniture doesn’t hide the area rug.
Q. Which area rug material is right for my space?
A. Popular area rugs include sheepskin rugs, cotton rugs, wool rugs, braided rugs, natural fiber rugs, and more. When picking the right style rug, think about the purpose of your room. Is the room used a lot with a considerable amount of foot traffic and furniture movement? If so, you may want to opt for a wool or cotton rug as they are much more durable than a natural fiber or sea grass rug. Put a sheepskin rug in your bedroom or sitting rooms to help achieve that warm glam look. The design options are endless with fun and creative area rugs.
Q. What is the importance of a Rug Pad?
A. A rug pad keeps your rug properly positioned, preventing it from slipping. Rug pads also:
- Protect smooth-surface flooring, like hardwood and laminate, from being scratched by the back of the rug
- Reduce wear and tear on the rug
- Help to absorb the impact of feet and noise
- Make vacuuming your rug easier
For rugs placed over carpet, use carpet tape or a rug pad. When choosing a pad, look for thin polyester fabric coated with adhesive. This type of pad prevents dark rug color from bleeding through on a light carpet. A pad made from slightly heavier polyester scrim coated with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) holds a rug firmly on wood or other smooth-surfaced flooring and won't damage the surface.
