Area Rugs: What to Look For

Nearly two-thirds of American homes have at least one area rug. If you’re anything like me, that number probably seems a bit low. I’ve even had area rugs in homes with wall-to-wall carpeting! Area rugs are great ways to warm up rooms with color and whimsy. They attenuate noise levels, toning down echoes that can make living rooms feel like warehouses. They can visually partition open spaces in loft-type floor plans, or provide a soft spot for the family hound to bask in the rays of the setting sun. Area rugs come in infinite combinations of color and pattern to suit any taste imaginable. That said, here are a few basics to look for when deciding on an area rug.

  • Take into consideration whether the edges and corners of the area rug could become a tripping hazard. The best area rugs will always lie flat to make this a non-issue.
  • The right type of rug pad should be used depending on the type of flooring under the rug. Not using the proper type of rug pad can do permanent damage to some floors as the backing may scratch the floors. Choosing the right type of rug pad, whether it be on top of wood, tile or carpet will be safer for your floors and keep your area rug from “walking” or “crawling”. Also, be sure that your rug is properly secured to the floor so that no one trips over the rug. Rug pad also helps the rug wear better, absorb the impact of body weight and makes vacuuming easier.
  • Rugs come with and without fringes. This is personal preference, depending if the option is offered for the rug. There are different styles and lengths of fringe for area rugs ranging from short (that stays in place) to long (that doesn’t always stay perfectly in place). Care should be taken when vacuuming an area rug with fringe.
  • Area rugs should be rotated at least once a year if the floors underneath are subject to fading. This will ensure even aging of the floors under the rug.
Purchasing Quality Carpet: What Should You Look For?

We sat down with Yeager Flooring President Jim Yeager to get his take on what to look for when purchasing quality carpet.

You’ll want continuous filament nylon or wool that’s made by a well-known name brand. We usually recommend Karastan carpeting because of their excellent warranty, the finest in the industry, something worth considering when you’re making the investment of purchasing quality carpet. Continuous filament is very important. Less expensive carpet varieties use stapled fibers, and that type of construction will tend to fray and shed over time, making them possibly much less durable. When it comes to synthetics, nylon is by far the cream of the crop. It’s better than polyester or olefin, which are harder to clean and do not hold up as well. Nylon does not shed yarn or get fuzzy as quickly. Wool is a more expensive choice but it is the premier fiber used in carpet construction. Wool cleans especially well, comes in beautiful colors, and has good resiliency, better than that of any synthetic fiber. They also are better suited to homes with asthmatics or allergy sufferers, provided they’re maintained regularly and properly. ] We have many varieties of carpet, but frieze is one of the more popular styles these days. It hides a multitude of sins, such as dirt or pathways. It’s also available in a barber-poled yarn, that’s when they spin multiple colors in the yarn, that hides staining and dirt really well. The backing isn’t much of a worry on the residential level. It’s more of a concern in commercial settings with a lot of traffic. The padding, also referred to as the cushion—that goes beneath the carpet—is very important. You’ll see a lot of places offering free pads with the installation of carpet, and most of the better carpet manufacturers require specific weights for the carpet cushion. But just because it’s the minimum doesn’t mean that’s what you should shoot for. When purchasing quality carpet, go for a heavier, denser pad, such as 8-pound weight instead of 6-pound. You’re looking at a price difference of $2.00 per square yard, but it’s worth it. You’re better off with a firm, dense pad, than a cheap, cushy pad that will break down in six months. When you’re getting the padding, make sure you ask for the true weight and thickness, because some of the listed weights and thicknesses they can get away with aren’t always accurate. We call those “cheaters.”
