Buying area rugs mean investment for both visual and financial. They can either make a room or break a room and instantly change the whole look of a room.

Some things to consider when shopping for area rugs:

In what type of lifestyle you live? Do have small children’s in the house? Do you have dogs or cats in the house? If the answer to these questions is yes then while shag rugs is not a good idea in these conditions.

Where you want to locate that rug in your room? Is it a formal place or living room or it is the place where you spend most of your time with your family playing board games?

What is the overall style of the place? Look at the complement the style of your room. There is no need to match everything with the area rug just match it with the tone and texture of the existing furniture.

How easily can a rug be cleaned? A high-quality rug needs to be cleaned at least twice a year so you have to keep this thing in mind while buying a rug. Is it possible for you to take that rug for cleaning or it needed to be picked up?

What do you want to feel underfoot? If you want to feel softer, then natural fibers such as cotton and wool are made for you. Else if you want a deep, lush, pile, synthetic fiber are best fit according to these needs. Jute and sisal can also give softer feel but they are not that warmth as compare to other fibers.

Do you change your interior with every season passing? If yes, then you must look twice before buying any piece of rug. You have to check whether it will work with the next season decoration.

Are you shifting your house after regular intervals? That means the size of the room varies from place to place. So the piece of rug you bought for one house will not work for the other one. I have seen people folding a rug to it fit in a smaller but according to us, it is not a good idea.
