How To Shop for an Entryway Rug

December 22, 2020 2 min read

Choosing a rug is a complicated process that requires factors that most people don't think about. There are thousands of rugs on the market and finding one that fits your personal taste is going to take some time, that is unless you follow these guidelines. 


There are three major factors to consider when shopping for a rug: style, size, and material. This article will give you guidelines to follow when shopping for a living room rug. When reading the articles keep in mind the purpose of a living room, your vision of that room, and what you want the room to say about you and your mentality. Being intentional and conscious about this process will give you the best results. 


STYLE

Instead of focusing on finding the perfect rug, we suggest taking a step back and taking a look at what you have already created. Look at the big picture and define the interior design style that you may, or may not have, consciously created and define the vibe you are going for. There are two ways about defining the style: through your personality and through interior style pieces. 


We believe that the personality of the individual is linked with the interior style, but some people don't think in that manner. For example, someone who is focused, determined, and conscious of their time would not want a lot of furniture and accents to distract them from their bigger purpose, therefore,  they might only include only what is necessary making them resonate with a minimalist interior design style.
