Finding the Right Feather Rugs
Before you pick your favorite design from our selection of feather area rugs, you’ll want to make sure you know what you’re looking for. We’ve highlighted some tips below to help:
Size: Measure your space carefully and pick dimensions that maintain around 24” between the walls and the edges of the rug. Outline your dimensions in masking tape on the floor to test them or give our room visualizer a try.
Durability: Pick a material that’s durable enough to stand up to the soil, moisture, sunlight, and shoe traffic levels in your home.
Rug Pad: Add a rug pad to your cart to protect your rug from early signs of wear on the pile and backing.
Room by Room: Using Feather Area Rugs
You can use feather area rugs in any room of the home. If you're looking for inspiration on how to use these beauties in your space, we're here to help. We've highlighted some of our favorite ways to use these rugs room by room below:
The living room is an excellent place to use brighter feather area rugs that’ll attract attention. For example, peacock feather rugs work well with many living room designs. To make sure your rug fits in, though, we recommend using the color palette of your living room to help pick your rug's color.
The bedroom is a great spot to use softer and more delicate materials like wool or even viscose. You’ll also want to focus on calm, soothing colors to avoid interfering with sleep. For example, gray feather rugs can work well in most bedrooms, no matter what their color palette is. Grey is a neutral color that goes with everything.
Without a rug, the dining room table can look like it’s floating, making the space feel uninviting. We recommend placing a rug underneath your table that roughly matches the table’s shape. For example, round dining tables would work well on round feather rugs and so on. Pick a rug that leaves at least 18” on all sides of the table so that chairs have room to slide out without falling off the edge.
Protect your kitchen floors with feather area rugs at the busiest points, like the sink and food prep areas. Long, narrow kitchens work well with runners, whereas open kitchens can use larger rugs. Pick a rug that's durable enough to stand up to traffic and occasional messes. If your home is busy, an indoor/outdoor rug might be an excellent fit for the kitchen.
