Below you’ll find our tips for choosing the best rug the first time. Keep reading to get informed and inspired:
Color and Style
Picking the right color and style for your home is key. You’ll see a range of styles expressed in these designs, from mountain rustic area rugs and mountain modern area rugs. And with a full spectrum of colors, the choice might feel a bit complicated.
Look at the colors and styles expressed in your current decor, or consider the look you're going for. Define a color palette for the room you're decorating, and pick a rug that incorporates those tones and shades.
Material and Durability
Even the most beautiful mounted themed area rugs will start to look lackluster if you can’t maintain them in your home. It’s important to pick materials that are durable enough for the moisture, soil, sunlight, and shoe traffic levels in your home.
Look at the materials that various rugs are made from and research which ones would be best for your home's traffic levels. Cotton is a popular choice for medium-traffic zones. Busy rooms might do best with indoor/outdoor options since these are easier to keep clean.
Measure the room you’re decorating to determine the best dimensions for your mountain cabin area rugs. You’ll want to keep around 24” between the edges of the rug and the walls. A good rule of thumb is to subtract 4’ from both the length and width of the room to find the maximum rug dimensions. So, following this rule, a 10’x12’ room could accommodate a 6’x8’ area rug.
Once you pick dimensions for your rug, give it a try using our room visualizer tool. This will help ensure that the rug size you’ve picked fits well in your space, and also gives you the option to compare different sizes to make sure you’ve found the goldilocks fit.
Buy a Rug Pad
Rug pads prevent sliding and early wear to the backing and pile of your rugs. We recommend adding a pad for each of the mountain area rugs in your cart to ensure they're protected from day one. If you’ve purchased an indoor/outdoor rug, you may want an outdoor pad to prevent moisture damage.
