Decorating Your Taunton Rental Property: Tips for Buying Rugs

Taunton Renters Rolling Out a New RugYour Taunton rental property would be incomplete if it didn’t have the perfect rug. Nonetheless, choosing and buying rugs can prove to be tricky. From size to material to colors; these details matter. This could add complications to the rug-buying process. But it doesn’t need to be. Check out these simple tips to help you decide which rug to bring back to your rental home.

Choose the Right Size and Shape

What rug shape should you choose? What’s the best size for you? It’s very important to get the size of your rug right. Otherwise, it might end up not fitting your space at all. If the rug you get ends up being too small for the space, it will give off a weird vibe. A rug that’s too large, on the other hand, will make the space feel cramped. To assess what size and shape rug you need, measure the space. One detail you might want to remember is to always leave some visible space between the wall and the rug on all sides. This is significant when looking for a runner or other walkway rug.

Choosing rugs for other rooms, however, is a bit more challenging. Nevertheless, here are some things you should remember. For living rooms, measure the seating area and choose a rug that will be big enough to place at least the front legs of your furniture on it. For dining areas, make sure the rug is big enough to hold both the table and the chairs while allowing room for someone to sit comfortably without the chair legs falling off the rug. Round rugs go really well with round tables! Bedroom rugs can be placed underneath the bed. Any shape will do, as long as it will give you enough space to walk on all sides.

Choosing Material and Weave

When you’re done finalizing the size and shape, you can start thinking about what kind of material and weave you want. Rugs can be made from many materials, from synthetic fibers and artificial silks to natural fibers and wool. If durability is what you’re after in a rug, synthetic fibers are the way to go. If luxury is more your style, you can get a silk or wool rug. Each of these materials also tends to come in various weaves, from low-pile rugs that are essentially flat to high-pile or plush rugs that can feel soft as a cloud under your feet. As far as weave goes, it’s all really up to you and your taste.

Color and Pattern

Deciding the rug’s color and pattern can be a tricky decision to make. The color of your rug plays a big role because it can set the tone for the entire room. Consider the rest of your belongings before you choose a color and pattern. If you have a lot of color and pattern in your furniture and other décor items, consider choosing a rug with a neutral color or subtle pattern to pull the room together. Nevertheless, you can always go with a rug that can brighten up your living space, especially when you have furniture that’s neutral.

Function and Maintenance

The last point to remember is this: decide what your rug is for so that you can give it the cleaning and maintenance it needs. Though expensive, there are rugs that don’t need to be replaced often. Just make sure that you go with one that fits your lifestyle and your ability to maintain it. A luxurious rug can definitely beautify your space. Just remember to not put it in an area that’s high-traffic. Regardless, don’t forget to get a rug pad to keep your rug in place. You don’t want loose rugs to cause falls or injuries inside your home simply because safety was neglected.
