Sell on Houzz – Learn MoreWhat materials are best for area rugs?It’s recommended that you don’t skimp when it comes to purchasing a new area rug, as high quality natural fibers like wool and silk are best but tend to be more expensive. Other natural fibers such as jute, grass and sisal can cost less but won’t wear as well. Another quality to look for is how easy it is to clean the materials, especially if you have children or pets. If you’re having trouble gauging how much you’re comfortable spending on a new area rug, take a look at how much other pieces of furniture in the room cost and search for area rugs that are priced similarly. What size area rug should I purchase?As a general rule, it’s recommended you choose area rugs that are two feet shorter than the shortest wall in the room where they’ll be placed. For example, if your bedroom is 11 feet by 13 feet, limit your search to bedroom rugs that are no more than nine feet long. Of course, this rule may not work in certain circumstances, like dining room rugs or living room rugs. For a dining room, look for an area rug that extends at least 18 inches past the edge of your dining table so that your dining chairs will fit on top. A living room rug should help designate conversation areas and should be big enough so that the front third of each piece of furniture sits on top of the rug. If your living room or den is large enough to hold more than one conversation area, you might consider buying two or more living room area rugs.

Rug grips are used under rugs with rough woven but slippery backings. If you have wood floors, it's a smart idea to get a rug grip to hold the rug and its edges in place and prevent tripping on wrinkled sections or curled edges. Rugs without non-slip backings can work if you place them on textured tile or carpet, but as a precaution, a rug pad or rug grip is a smart purchase. Rug pads come in various materials and thicknesses, and some work best on wood or carpet. A rug pad also prevents your rug from slipping and bunching, but it also has added padding to protects the rug from the wear and tear of heavy traffic.
