Picking the Best Stone Area Rugs for Your Space
Once you know that you want stone area rugs for your space, you’re halfway there. All that’s left is deciding what, exactly, you want and need. For example, we mentioned earlier that you might want stone-colored area rugs or a stone pattern area rug. You might have come here looking for one type of stone rug and changed your mind.
Deciding what you want ahead of time will make sure you find a rug you’ll love for years to come the first time. If you’d like some help, check out the tips we’ve highlighted below before you keep shopping.
Color and Style
The color and style of your rug will have the most significant impact on what it looks like in your home. If you already know that you want a river rock rug because it matches your space's color and style, you can skip this section. Otherwise, look at the room you're decorating and evaluate the existing color and style.
From here, pick the best colors and styles to go with what you have and enter them in the search filters. This approach can make it much easier to find the best rock rug for your space.
Think about the shoe traffic, moisture, soil, and sunlight exposure in the room you're decorating. Use this information to select a rug that's durable enough for your home. For example, you don't want to put a delicate and absorbent material like wool in a bathroom used for showering, but that rug would work fine in a low-traffic bedroom.
Look for information about cleaning requirements, too. Choose a rug that you're prepared to keep clean so that it can stay beautiful and soft for years to come.
Measure the area you’re decorating and pick a rug size to fit. For most spaces, you want around 24” of floor between the edges of the rug and the walls. Once you pick rug dimensions, test your rug picks out using our room visualizer tool or try outlining the dimensions on the floor in masking tape. Either method will allow you to see if the size will be a good fit before you buy.
Buy a Rug Pad
Unless the description for stone area rugs you’re looking at states that you don’t need to buy a rug pad, add one to your cart for each rug. Pads prevent sliding and add years to the life of your rug by protecting the pile and backing from premature wear.
