How I Choose A Rug How I Choose A Rug

How I Choose A Rug

My stepdaughter lives in San Diego while she?s in nursing school. To soften the terra cotta tile floor in her rental and as a layer under her small navy blue sofa, I shipped her this simple coastal striped rug from Overstock.
Overstock has been a go-to site for me for years for stylish affordable decor, I?ve purchased soooo many things from that site over the years: rugs, light fixtures, faucets, kitchen hardware, furniture, etc.
I was happy to learn about Club O Rewards, the membership based loyalty rewards program offered at Overstock. Customers enrolled in the program receive free shipping on every order, and at least 5 percent in reward dollars for all purchases, and up to 20 percent in reward dollars on hundreds of select products.
Out of curiosity, I totaled up my purchases from Overstock in the last year, and the 5% I could have earned in rewards being a Club O member was way more than the $19.95 annual fee. So I signed up for Club O Rewards to not miss out on future benefits. If the total amount of my rewards for a year is not equal to the cost of the membership, the difference will be automatically added to my account when I renew the next year. But since I shop there so much I have no doubt I?ll get my money?s worth. :)
As a long time customer, today I partnered with Overstock to talk about how I choose the style of an area rug in a space. First, I imagine a particular style that will complement the décor. Next, I narrow it down to the rugs that have quality, durability, an affordable price, and a good review. I?m always looking for a bargain, but the rug has to look good, feel good, and stand up to wear and tear.
When shopping for a rug online, my rug choices default into one of three categories: a classic stripe, a subtle pattern, or a no fail neutral. If you?re ever nervous about what style of rug to buy, my advice is to choose one of these three.
Simple Stripes
I bought a wide stripe green rug from Overstock for my rear courtyard last year, I loved it! The rug was soft, the quality was excellent and the color divine. It lasted through two summers in direct sunlight, and at such a great price.
Stripes are classic and never go out of style. It?s a universal truth, you can never go wrong with a simple or bold striped rug !

Subtle Pattern
Earlier this year I pulled together a family room for veterans for my local Committee on the Shelterless, and in that space I added this gorgeous blue rug from Overstock because it provided a dose of deep blue and also a subtle pattern underneath.
This is one of the easiest ways to choose a rug: pick a color that you?d like to repeat a few times in any space and then find a rug with a subtle pattern in that color to add interest underfoot. I especially love rugs with mottled patterns that mimic the look of old world textiles.
