There’s more to think about when choosing a rug or a carpet than design or color. The process is much more complex and you shouldn’t go shopping unprepared. It’s best to make a list of features the perfect rug or carpet should include and a list of criteria it should fulfill. If you’re having trouble coming up with that list, take a look at the following suggestions.
Depending on where the rug or carpet will be placed, you can choose from several different types of materials, colors, etc. For example, if you wish to have carpet on the hallway, which is a high-traffic area, a light color such as white is not your best option.
Depending on the type of lifestyle you’ve adopted, you need to prioritize certain features. For example, if you have pets or small children always running around the house with muddy shoes, pick a rug that requires little maintenance, is easy to clean and doesn’t show stains that well.
And speaking of care and maintenance, this can also be a criteria when choosing a rug or carpet. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if you have pets, kids or anything else as long as you prefer a rug that only requires vacuuming every once in a while to look fresh.
