Decorating Your Hot Springs Village Rental Property: Tips for Buying Rugs

Hot Springs Village Renters Rolling Out a New RugYour Hot Springs Village rental home deserves nothing less than the perfect rug. But, choosing and buying rugs come with challenges. There are a few details you should think through, like size, material, and even colors. 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 size best fits your area? The most important detail you really need to take note of is the size of the rug — it has to fit inside your space perfectly. A rug that’s too small will make the space feel lacking. Too large, and the area will look like it’s too cramped. To determine 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. Remember this when going for a runner or other walkway rug.

Choosing rugs for other rooms is a little different. Nonetheless, here’s what you need to know. 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 tables can be placed on round rugs to give it that nice symmetrical look. 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

After determining the size and shape, move on to material and weave. Rugs can be made from many materials, from synthetic fibers and artificial silks to natural fibers and wool. Synthetic fibers are your go-to when looking for durable rugs. But, if you want luxury, a silk or wool rug will do the trick. 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

Choosing the color and pattern for your rug can be challenging. This is because oftentimes, the color of your rug can set the tone for the entire room. To choose a color and pattern, think about your other stuff. 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. You can also choose to go with rugs that are a bit expensive but don’t have to be replaced anytime soon. As such, find a rug that best fits your lifestyle and your ability to maintain it. A luxurious silk rug is nice, but it won’t do well in a high-traffic area. And, never forget to get a rug pad to keep those rugs in place. A loose rug can cause falls and injuries inside your home. Don’t forget the issue of safety, too!
