You're in for a treat if you want a 3x5 wool rug for your home. These beauties are so versatile and soft that you might find yourself wanting more than one.
Why a 3x5 Wool Rug?
There’s just something special about a 3x5 wool rug. It’s a traditional and natural fiber that’s excellent for insulating your floors, and the natural wax coating makes it easy to keep clean. Interior designers love using these rugs in homes around the world in different styles, colors, and patterns.
A 3x5 wool area rug is the perfect piece to add to a smaller space like a bedside, reading area, or even kitchen. And the best part? It’ll be luxurious and warm regardless of which rug you select.
The following ideas are some of many ways you could use a 3x5 wool area rug:
Most 3x5 wool rugs can be used in large bathrooms instead of—or in addition to—standard smaller bathmats. Avoid using them in front of the shower or bathtub, however, as wool dries slowly and shouldn’t be subjected to excess moisture.
You can use a 3x5 braided wool rug as the perfect floor covering in a child's playroom or even your reading area. Braided wool is more durable, and it has a classic, earthy appear that seems to inspire people to sit down and enjoy themselves.
Safavieh 3x5 wool area rugs are particularly luxurious. Artisan rugmakers carefully craft each one, and the patterns are developed over several years before being released in a collection.
A Closer Look at 3x5 Wool Area Rugs
Most 3x5 wool area rugs are made with meticulous attention to detail, making each one an actual investment piece for your home. And the best part? They come in styles ranging from lodge to contemporary with everything in between, so there’s something for every home.
Wool rugs are, however, slightly more challenging to keep clean than synthetics. Thankfully, all you need is a small carpet shampooer and wool detergent to remove water-based stains.
As with all rugs, you’ll need to blot stains quickly, vacuum regularly, and do deep cleaning one to three times per year depending on soil level.
Is a 3x5 Wool Area Rug Right for Me?
As long as you can keep a wool rug clean, which isn't much more challenging than any other rug, the only thing to consider is the size. A 3x5 rug works best for a space or room that's 5x7. This allows for 12 inches of space between the rug and the wall. If your area is larger than 5x7, consider sizing up your rug.
If you've measured carefully and are sure about the size, though, there's no reason not to go with a 3x5 wool area rug for your home!
Choosing the Perfect 3x5 Wool Rug
Use a color picker tool to examine the room’s existing palette and pick rug colors that will work in the space. Also, consider using the style filter, matching it to your home, to help you find the right rug faster.
Remember to buy a rug pad during checkout. Pads prevent sliding while adding an extra layer of cushioning.
