8 Tips for Buying Your First Area Rug

Jessica Ashley offers 8 tips to buy an area rug like an adult.
  1. Set a budget  (I've read recently that an area rug in front of a sofa should be 1/3 the price of the sofa)
  2. Assess the room - Write down WHY you want an area rug
  3. Measure the space  
  4. Get honest about wear and tear- What kind of rug does your room really need?
  5. Consider color, light and pattern  
  6. Choose a fiber  - Choose the quality that is the best fit for your wallet, room and needs
  7. Determine density - density measures the amount of yarn packed per square yard. 
  8. Don't put off the padding
