How to Choose the Right Rug

How to Choose the Right Rug

Armadillo’s collection grows each year, making it easier and easier to find the perfect rug for your home. There is a style for everyone, whether you are after subtle texture or a bold geometric design.

Getting the right size rug for a space is really important. The mistake we most often see people make is selecting a rug that is too small for a space – this can make the space feel smaller, crowded and disjointed. When it comes to rugs, bigger is almost always better.

Armadillo&Co’s collections come in a great range of standard sizes and can also be made to order in custom sizes including hall runners. Not sure what size you need?

  1. Have a look at our rug placement guide to get some ideas about positioning. Or pick one up free in store!
  2. Map out on your floor the area that the rug will cover. The best way to visualise this is to lay down flat sheets or newspaper on your floor. This helps you see how much floor you are going to cover, how much of the rug will be covered by a coffee table or sofa, and whether the rug may block a door or hallway.
  3. If you are still not sure, take some photos, measurements of the room and key furniture items in and share them with us in store or via email. We can help you figure out what size is going to work best for you!
