Frequently asked rug questions
Ephesians Rug | pc: Boutique Rugs
Do I need an area rug?
No, you don’t. However, they’re an easy way to warm up the space and also save on wear and tear on your permanent floors underneath. When you shop rugs on sale, you’re not investing too much money into them which makes them affordable to swap out every couple of years as style change. Area rugs are a great way of tying in all of your room elements together, you can pull together a variety of colors from the room into one spot.
How do I clean an area rug?
As much as we love a good area rug to tie the room together, let’s be honest, they take a good beating. Check out our top tips to keep your area rug clean!
What should I look for when buying a rug?
According to Lowe’s, the traditional rule of thumb is to measure the seating area and select a rug the closest size up. This allows all of the furniture legs to rest on the rug for a unified look. For a more modern look, break the rules using smaller rugs that fit the front furniture legs (or no furniture legs). Try filling the entire room with the rug. To do so, measure your room and select a size that allows for two feet of floor space around the rug’s perimeter. You can also layer rugs. A smaller rug on top of a larger one helps define seating areas and creates visual interest. Use carpet tape to keep the rug safely in place.
What size area rug do I need?
The Spruce offers great advice when selecting a rug size: the most common mistake people make when buying an area rug is choosing a size that is too small for their space. It’s often recommended to decide on the appropriate size of rug based on your furniture configuration, not based on the specific room size. Some layouts look better with allowing a certain amount of the floor to be visible around the edge of the room. So, the main guideline is to determine the best rug size is to always consider the furniture placement over the room size. This “rule” is especially true for placing a rug in a living room, dining room, or bedroom.

Such a wonderful site you have!!! I just moved into my own modern farmhome and cannot want to keep decorating using all your tips!!
I have a small 17×13 living room and I want to add a rug to the room. In a room this size should you go for a bold, large design room or should you go for a small design. I like blues, rust and beige.
Hi Patty! I also have a living room about that size and to make the room appear larger, stick with a less busy pattern 🙂
