Welcome to Yarn and Loom Rugs and thank-you for having a look around our shop!

Yarn and Loom Rugs wants you to find a rug that you will still love in years to come - so here are our top tips for successfully buying a rug online.

 

WORKING WITH YOUR ROOM'S COLOUR SCHEME

The first step to choosing the best rug for your room is to determine what colour floor rug you have in mind.  Typically, selecting a floor rug colour is primarily determined by the paint colour and the colours in the upholstery.

Rugs 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.  However, a similar shade of red could be an accent color in the rug.

A great way to short list the items you like is to create an online wishlist.  This will allow you to easily collate the rugs that may meet your design brief.

 

KNOWING THE DESIGN STYLE THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO ACHIEVE

In line with determing the colour floor rug that you have in mind, you will need to consider the design aesthetic. 

Are you seeking a simple solids, bold geometrics, florals or trellis?  Our selection is all designed to co-ordinate with popular uphostery and paint colours.

 

DO IT LIKE A DESIGNER, CREATE A MOOD BOARD

A mood board is a collage consisting of images, text and samples in a composition.  They are very effective in illustrating the style you are trying to pursue. 

Putting the image with the rug together with the rest of your room's elements will help you to see whether or not it achieves the look you are reaching for.

 

DETERMINE THE RIGHT SIZE FLOOR RUG YOU REQUIRE

Selecting the right size floor rug for your room is one of the most important aspects of selecting your rug - and will either make or break the aesthetic of the room.  Read our page on choosing the right size floor rug.

Once you have determined the size, and have found a rug with the same or similar dimensions- layout out some paper/newspaper for the area that the rug will take up to help you imagine how the rug will fit in the space.

 

 We hope this helps and please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
