Select Your Rug Pad Rug pads keep your rug properly positioned, preventing it from slipping. Rug pads also: Reduce wear and tear on the rug Help to absorb the impact of feet and noise Make vacuuming your rug easier Protect smooth-surface flooring, like hardwood and laminate, from being scratched by the back of the rug For rugs placed over carpet, use carpet tape or a rug pad. When choosing a pad, look for thin polyester fabric coated with adhesive. This type of pad prevents dark rug color from bleeding through on a light carpet. A pad made from slightly heavier polyester scrim coated with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) holds a rug firmly on wood or other smooth-surfaced flooring and won’t damage the surface. Shop Rug Pads

The Best Rug Size and Shape for Your Living Space The traditional rule of thumb is to measure the seating area and select a rug the next closest size up. This allows all of the furniture legs to rest on the rug for a unified look. For a more modern look, break the rules using smaller rugs that fit the front furniture legs (or no furniture legs) can look great, too. Try filling the entire room with your rug. To do so, measure your room and select a size that allows for 2 feet of floor space to show on the rug’s perimeter. You can also layer rugs. A smaller rug atop a larger one helps define seating areas and creates visual interest. Use carpet tape to keep the rug safely in place. Good to KnowUse furniture coasters under furniture legs to protect your rug. Good to KnowTo get an idea of how a certain size rug would look in your space, lay a bedsheet folded to that size on the floor where you’re considering a rug.

Learning the Lingo Eliminate confusion from your shopping trip by learning a few key terms. Hand-Carved – Using hand shears, the weaver cuts a design into the rug. The carving gives the rug a unique look. Hand-Hooked – The weaver pushes a hooking tool through the foundation cloth to the front of the rug, then pulls the yarn to the back, leaving a loop on the surface. Hand-Knotted – Each knot is individually tied by hand. These knots are single strands of yarn that have been looped around two adjacent warp threads. Hand-Tufted – An inked-on foundation cloth is stretched over a loom. Then a manually operated hand-tufting gun pushes the yarn through the back of the cloth to form the pile. When the rug is taken off the loom, a scrim and layer of latex are placed on the back, and backcloth is then sewed onto the latex and scrim to protect your floors. Heat Set – This is a process polypropylene goes through to put a twist in the yarn. When the yarn is set with heat, it has a wool-like appearance. Jacquard – A design produced by a mechanized loom that has a belt of punched cards. The holes in the card are arranged to produce the weave of the rug. Line Count – One indicator of rug quality is the number of knots or stitches per square inch. The higher the count, the higher the quality. This number may be calculated differently, depending on materials used, assembly techniques and whether the rug is domestic or imported. Pile – This is the surface yarn that makes up the face of the rug. Stitches / Needle Count – The number of loops of yarn is known as the stitch or needle count. The higher the stitch or needle count, the denser the rug. Higher-density rugs last longer and wear better than more loosely woven constructions. Warp and Wefts – The warp yarn is the stationary thread on the loom. These fibers are the strongest part of the rug. They’re intersected with wefts — the filling yarn that’s woven though the warps. Wilton Loom – These rugs bear a close resemblance to hand-knotted rugs but are machine made. The pile is woven between two backings and then split down the middle so you get two separate rugs.

Rug grips are used under rugs with rough woven but slippery backings. If you have wood floors, it's a smart idea to get a rug grip to hold the rug and its edges in place and prevent tripping on wrinkled sections or curled edges. Rugs without non-slip backings can work if you place them on textured tile or carpet, but as a precaution, a rug pad or rug grip is a smart purchase. Rug pads come in various materials and thicknesses, and some work best on wood or carpet. A rug pad also prevents your rug from slipping and bunching, but it also has added padding to protects the rug from the wear and tear of heavy traffic.

I love your dining room and thank you much for your post about rugs. I just bought a rug for my living room which right next to my dining area (great room, open to kitchen) I loved the colors In the store however, looks different at home and a lot of shading going on when one walks on it. It was suggested to me that I could do two area rugs, one in the dining and one in the living room to define each space. I have a lovely dark wood floor and it’s not a very large area so I don’t know if that would work. I think this rug is going back to the store and will have to look for another, I look forward to your next post about living room rugs, as I’m not sure what size I should do. this one was 11’2″ x 7’8 but wouldn’t have minded the 7′ a bit larger. Any thoughts on the two rug ideas to define a space that is joined? Hard to explain you probably need a picture to see perhaps.

Sutro Architects 2. Pick a flat weave or short pile rug. Because spills are inevitable, and the ease with which you can pull a chair back is important, flat-weave or low-pile rugs are the practical choice in the dining room. Keep the shag rugs, Moroccan carpets and other thick, fluffy rugs in the living room, where they will require less cleaning and maintenance.3. Use the rug as a jumping-off point for decorating. If the rug is one of your first purchases for the dining room, you can use it to set the tone for the space and develop a color scheme. Pull the lightest or background color from the rug to use as a wall color, and bring in a bolder hue from the rug as an accent in the room, on chair cushions or in artwork.
