If you’ve ever shopped for a new area rug, you may have been overwhelmed by the options. Rectangular, round, patterned, solid, high pile, low pile… there are an endless number of styles and designs. So where do you start?
That’s where Floor Coverings International North Tampa comes in. Our experts can help you select the right rug for your Tampa home. Here are some guidelines to get you started:
Consider the Size and Layout of Your Space
Furniture placement is key to choosing the right rug for your room. If it is a dining room, both the chairs and dining table should fit comfortably on top of the rug. If it is a living room, the furniture should fit around the edges of the rug. Let the size and layout of your space guide the type of rug that you choose. For example, a small dining room with a round table would be well suited to a round rug. In contrast, a large bedroom would do well with a rectangular rug that is large enough to fit the bed and then some.
Think About How the Space is Used
Is this a busy space with lots of foot traffic and activity? Is it a relaxing space where members of the household like to lounge or sit on the floor? Is it a space where food and liquid could be spilled? Thinking about these kinds of questions will help you determine what type of rug or carpet to choose. Fluffy, high pile area rugs will add comfort and dimension to a room, while durable, low-pile rugs are better for foot traffic and frequent cleaning.
