  1. Size
  2. The first thing to consider is how big of an area rug to buy. If you’re looking to put one in a bedroom, measure the bed and plan to have the area rug extend a couple of feet on each side. For a Livingroom, you will want the area rug to die underneath the couches for a more polished look. That’s why you should measure all of the furniture to get an idea of how big of a rug you need. Finally, for dining rooms, you will need 18 to 24 inches on each side of where the chairs end to avoid the worry of falling off the rug when people scoot in and out.    
  3. Material  
  4. There are many materials to choose from when it comes to area rugs. Wool rugs are extremely soft, soil-resistant, and good at retaining their shape. They are also pretty costly. Silk is another option for area rugs and gives off a luxurious look. Plus, there are hypoallergenic and resistant to mold. You can also choose a synthetic material like nylon, polyester, or acrylic, which are all very durable and water-resistant.  
  5. Style
  6. The next step is to choose the style of the area rug. This includes choosing a color, pattern (if any), and style of the area rug. You can choose from ornamental area rugs or more modern options. Take a look at your room, the décor in it, and the colors and choose a rug that meshes with everything. If you need help, the experts at Monarch Carpets can help!
