Choosing the Perfect Rug (and keeping it that way)

I know I spent some time talking about rugs this week already, but I wanted to finish off the week talking about choosing and caring for a rug.  Choosing a rug is usually one of the top things that stresses my interior design clients out.  It’s makes a big impact both on the budget and visually in the room. And, they are expensive and cumbersome to ship back so you definitely don’t want to get it wrong!

Instead of re-inventing the wheel, here are 5 amazing guides to choosing and caring for your rug!  Just click on the photos to head that guide.


This Joss & Main guide has fantastic graphics to help you visualize their tips. And, really pretty rugs if you’re ready to shop!


I love Apartment Therapy for their real-world design advice.


This World Market Guide is super visual and helpful.

This One Kings Lane guide is my favorite of the bunch…so much great information in one spot.

Even though it’s Friday, I’m not dong talking about rugs…I’ll be back next week with a few additional posts on playing with pattern and scale and also what to put under your rugs!

Have a great weekend!
