Rug Buying Guide: Fibers and Fiber Types

The type of fiber used in a rug is one of the most important variables to consider when shopping for a rug at FurnitureCart. Also, it is important to understand that the most expensive fibers, New Zealand wool for example, aren’t always the best choice – it depends on the needs of the end consumer. If a customer is wary of high foot traffic or messy stains from children, then a more resilient fiber like polypropylene or cotton is possibly the better choice. Understanding the fiber types on the following chart will help make the best decision.

The color scheme of your room

When searching for a rug, there is also color in mind. These are primarily determined by their paint color and the colors in their upholstery. Rug’s don’t necessarily need to exactly match the key elements in the room, but they should flow together. For example, a solid red rug should not be paired with a solid red sofa. A similar shade of red should be an accent color in the rug. Just in case they need more help in general, here are a few items to point out:

  • A warm color scheme creates an energetic space. Ideal for dining rooms, entry ways, and exercise rooms. Suggested colors: Red, Rust, Gold, Yellow.
  • A cool color scheme makes a room feel relaxed, perfect for bedrooms, bathrooms, and nurseries. Suggested colors: Blue, Green, Lavender, Grey.

Rugs may have a history rooted in ancient times, but modern advancements in technology have introduced an array of new fiber types. Due to these recent advancements, rugs have become more affordable, fashionable, and complex in texture, design and color.
Rugs and accessories tie a room together visually, so browse our online catalog to find the rugs that will fit the color scheme and the style of your room.
