Choosing an area rug

When selecting an area rug, don't just look at colors and patterns. Factor in the rug's construction. Area rugs come in both natural and manmade fibers, each of which has its own unique characteristics. There are many options including polyester, silk, triexta, wool, leather, jute, polypropylene, and more! It's important to first consider where the rug will be placed in your home. Is it in a high-traffic area? Do you have kids or pets? Do you want something practical and durable or something more elegant and ornamental? Your answers to these questions will determine the material of rug best suited for your space.
