Having open conversation and dialogue will not only help you find the rug that you want but will also help the vendor uncover which rug is the right fit. Some places have thousands of rugs and having a good starting place is really helpful for everyone.

Now, a question for you and yes, it is slightly unanswerable but I'm going to give it a bash as you never know. Do you have any idea how much a 2x3m rug might weigh and whether it will fold up small enough to go inside the average suitcase? I'm seeing what look to be folded rugs on Pinterest and they certainly look as though they'd fit into a suitcase...

My new favorite feature of these guys is that they just recently came out with a line of washable rugs (a la Ruggable rugs) and I actually like some of their patterns a lot better and the prices seem lower as well!

I enjoyed this- thank you for sharing! As for favorites- I love the three in the center column. The top one to me says "elegant princess" while the second and bottom row centers seem more playful. I have two boys, so I won't be buying any girly rugs, but I love seeing the pink!

I recently moved into a new home with vinyl flooring throughout. I was in desperate need of indoor rugs to cozy up my space, but I had no idea where to start. Shopping for rugs online provided more questions than answers. But I loved having all the size, color and material options at the click of a mouse, instead of going to a rug store.(new Image()).src = ' =2ba02a33-c319-4410-bba7-f8321a13bed3&cid=877050e7-52c9-4c33-a20b-d8301a08f96d'; cnxps.cmd.push(function () cnxps( playerId: "2ba02a33-c319-4410-bba7-f8321a13bed3" ).render("00499ba9282e4d1b985fa8af14d29c2b"); );

Size is one of the key components in buying a rug. Size is determined by where your rug will lay in the room. As a rule of thumb, bigger is usually better. Larger rugs anchor a space and offer visual interest. In a dining or living room, at least two legs of all your furniture should fit on the rug. Smaller rugs are better used as accents, in minimal spaces like entryways, or between the sink and island in the kitchen.

To choose the size of the jute rug I used under my chair, I measured how each size would look and decided the 5-ft. x 5-ft. was the best fit. It was maybe an inch too large for the corner I planned to put it in, but that looked better than going with the 4-ft. x 4-ft. option.

I chose the Garran Area Rug with some hesitation about the decorative tassels. Wool shedding was also a worry, a common problem in wool rugs. But I was sold on the diamond design that looks striking but not busy. And the 8-ft. x 10-ft. rectangle fit the space perfectly.

Casa Amarosa offers wholesale handcrafted and ethically made home & lifestyle goods for retailers and trade partners across the globe. Each collection uses traditional artisan techniques from India featuring cushions, throws, rugs, wall décor, kitchen textiles and personal accessories.

Before diving into our favorite shops and picks, I wanted to make a little cheat sheet and break down the types of rugs you will most likely encounter on your search (though keep in mind there are SO many other varieties like Heriz, Serapi, Mashad, etc.):

Arlyn found this great shop on Instagram and a find it was! They have a killer selection of traditional yet fresh looking rugs, full of color (you know that girl loves her color). They also have a handful of their rugs photographed in actual spaces which is SO nice and takes a lot of the guessing game out of a purchase.

How to transport the rugs/other decor item you bought during vacationing? Would the rug fits in the luggage? We bought smaller decor items that easily packed, but always deterred from buying bigger items due to transportation problem.

Browsing vintage rugs on ebay is one of my favorite pastimes. One of my biggest scores was a wool room-sized hand-knotted rug for less than $500- you can occasionally score on rugs if no one else is bidding.

Seeing the rug in person lets them confirm the color, quality and size ofthe rug themselves. The showroom takes the guesswork out of thepurchasing process.

There are myriad ways to decorate with rugs and simply placing a plain or patterned rug on the floor can change the feel of a room instantly. Our decoration columnist, Rita Konig, recommends using a rug to "pull a room together," as "furniture on a bare floor can look a little as if it is skating about untethered." Be aware of how the scale of the pattern will look in contrast to the size of the room. A large scale, monochrome patterned rug will likely be more overwhelming and obvious than a Persian style rug in a low pile, so it will sit more comfortably in a small space than the former.

Whilst they are wonderful at bringing a room together, they can also be useful for denoting different 'areas' or 'sections' in an open-plan space. In this scenario, an area rug can define the main seating area in a living room, and then different rugs can be used to delineate the space for a desk or the dining table.

In the hallway, rugs can be an excellent way to experiment with a bolder pattern. "Rather like the way a wallpaper can open up the walls and give a greater sense of space, a patterned carpet in a long corridor will create a brighter and more open space," says Rita.

According to Rita, the general rule of thumb is that a "large rug that takes up the whole room should be about 45cm away from the walls." This will ensure that the room feels grounded without being claustrophobic, or bunching up against the walls. If you have fallen in love with a rug and it simply isn't big enough, getting a larger rug made up in a natural material, such as sisal or coconut matting and then layering the smaller one on top will help to avoid the "bath mat" situation. The layering of rugs is especially common in Moroccan or Middle Eastern homes and creates a really lovely atmosphere, especially on top of smart wooden floors.

There's a huge range of materials and techniques out there, and not all of them are suitable for every kind of room. Make sure you pick hardwearing and high-quality materials for areas where a lot of people are going to be walking, such as hallways, kitchens and utility areas, while finer materials are better as decorative centrepieces in sitting rooms and dining rooms. At the more affordable end of the spectrum are natural fibre, eco-friendly rugs, like a sisal or jute rugs, which are great as base layers on top of which we like to layer other, more colourful rugs. They also work beautifully on their own and lend a friendly, country house feel to a room. Cotton is used for flat-weave rugs that are hard-wearing and easy to clean, making this material a good choice for 'high-traffic areas', whilst wool is the most common material you'll find in a rug. At the most luxurious end of the spectrum you'll find silk or wool-silk blends, which are gloriously soft underfoot, though perhaps best suited for 'low-traffic areas' like bedrooms. The same applies for shag or sheepskin rugs, as the texture of these can quickly turn matted with constant use.

For outdoors or for muddy entrances or utility rooms, synthetic materials likepolypropylene, while less than glamorous, are extremely practical. For more on this, have a look at our guide to outdoor rugs here.

As Christie's carpet specialist Louise Broadhurst notes, "it is important to clean a carpet regularly. This can be done with a domestic hoover on a light setting, but if it requires a more thorough clean it should be handled by a professional carpet cleaner." If you choose to attempt to wash your rug yourself, make sure you test any cleaning solution (whether it's just dish soap or a carpet shampoo) on an inconspicuous corner of the rug first to make sure the colour doesn't run. Then you can work the solution into the rug using a sponge or soft brush. Let it sink in for five minutes or so, then rise thoroughly. This is best done outside with the help of a garden hose or buckets of water. A wet-dry vacuum can help you remove excess water from the rug, before leaving it to dry.

For more advice on how to choose and position a rug, take a look at Rita Konig's column on the subject, which details her favourite stockists and advises on how to avoid the 'flying carpet' problem when arranging rugs and furniture.

Rug enthusiasts have heard of Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan, but there are many more countries that produce fine-quality handmade rugs. These countries produced famous rugs such as Oushak Rugs, Persian Rugs, Kilim Rugs, and other top handmade rugs. 041b061a72
