3 Tips for Choosing the Right Area Rug, Kahului, Hawaii

Area rugs do more than protect the floors in your home. Rugs can define a space and add pops of color, making your house feel stylish and welcoming. Here are three tips for choosing the right area rug for your home, and why you won’t regret being choosy later on.

Factors to Remember When Shopping

1. Opt for High-Wear Fabrics

Your entryway will see a lot of use, especially if you and your family typically enter and exit through the same space. As you shop, keep fabric type in mind, and opt for durable, high-traffic fabrics such as synthetics, jute, or sea grass. Additionally, look at care instructions to see how the rug will need to be cleaned.

2. Mimic the Shape of the Area

For instance, round rugs can make a circular entryway pop, and a square version will look right in place in a boxy entryway. For long or hallway shaped entryways, consider installing a runner instead of an area rug.

3. Don’t Shy Away from Color or Texture

Show off your style by selecting a rug with personality. Pay attention to color, texture, and sheen, and choose an area rug that ties your style together. For example, pick one in your favorite color or one with patterns that remind you of an exotic vacation. Rugs can also be statement pieces and conversation starters.
