How to Choose the Right Sustainable Rug
Choosing an eco-friendly rug is not as easy as it sounds. But, the key lies in knowing the size you want, placement area, etc. So here are the steps to choosing an eco-friendly carpet
1- Pick the Right Material
Go for a carpet with natural fibres, wool, and natural dyes. Rugs made from polypropylene are also Eco since the material is from recycled plastic.
2- Determining the Size
Choosing the perfect rug also depends on the size of the area you want to cover. Keep in mind that, in general, at least 18-inches of the bare floor are to be left exposed.
If you are looking for a rug for the living room, then the best sizes are 9*12, 8*10 or 5*8.
For the bedroom, a 5*8 or 9*12 is enough, depending on how you want to place the carpet.
Dining rooms will go with an 8-feet round carpet or a rectangular carpet of 9*12 or 8*10.
3- Consider the Placement
Where do you want to place the carpet? The dining room, living room, bedroom, kitchen or the hallway? Indoor or outdoor? All these will help determine the size, the colour, and the thickness of the carpet. Kitchens, hallways, and bedsides need runner rugs while living and dining rooms need bigger carpets.
Don’t forget to use eco-friendly paint if you want to match the rug to your wall colour.
4- Choose Patterned or Plain Carpet
It all depends on the furniture, furnishings and the theme of the room. A patterned carpet will make any room look larger or smaller, as well as lifting the mood. They are also ideal if you want to go with a more traditional theme. If you are going for a modern look, then a plain carpet will do. Plain rugs are also ideal for areas where the need is to only cover the floor. A plain rug will allow your furniture to get all the attention.
5- Always Remember the Rug Pads
A rug pad prolongs the life of a rug and protects the floor from any damage. So, no matter the size of the rug or where you are placing your new rug, it won’t move, so remember to buy an eco-friendly rug pad.
