Buying a rug from The Loom Collection online is an investment into high-quality design that can last for years. However, choosing from our extensive range may feel overwhelming. That’s why we’ve created a comprehensive guide to assist you in finding the ideal rug that matches your style and practical needs.

The Importance of Rug Size

When shopping online for rugs from The Loom Collection, you'll come across a diverse array of shapes and sizes. Taking accurate measurements of your room before making your purchase is crucial to avoid selecting the wrong size.

The size of your rug is guided by the room's configuration and how your furniture is arranged. Visualize your ideal rug size by marking your desired area with masking tape in the space. Once you determind the perfect size, you can shop confidently knowing that we stock rugs in more than 5 different sizes. 

If you need help positioning a rug with your furniture, check out our practical guide that includes diagrams and tips for rug placement in popular home spaces like the lounge, dining area, and bedroom.

In most cases, rectangular rugs are easiest to work with as they provide a clear area for styling your furniture. For larger spaces, consider layering two rugs from The Loom Collection for an appealing look. 

Patterned Rugs

While browsing The Loom Collection, pay close attention to rug pattern size and repeat. The patterns in our rugs play a significant role in pulling together your interior style and enhancing the longevity of your rug.

Here are a few practical tips from The Loom Collection to consider when choosing your rug:

  • Light-toned or solid rugs are ideal for low-traffic areas like the bedroom.
  • Two-toned or patterned rugs are great for high-traffic areas like living or dining rooms, as they can easily disguise spills and dirt.
  • For minimalist spaces, a piled rug can add visual interest and conceal dirt at the fiber base, keeping it looking cleaner for longer.

When layering rugs, ensure the patterns aren't overly intense. The contrast in texture alone can create a beautiful focal point.

The Weight of a Rug

Investing in a rug with a high weight count can ensure you'll love it for years to come. The heavier the rug, the more material and thickness it contains, promising numerous benefits:

  • It's less likely to slip on timber or tiled floors.
  • It's more durable, resisting wear and tear better over time.
  • It feels plush underfoot and provides better insulation.
  • It adds visual interest, making your space feel more luxurious.

As a guide, we recommend a rug around 20kg for superior quality. Keep in mind, while shopping online from The Loom Collection, that we offer free shipping in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah city. For all other areas in the UAE as well as for international deliveries we may charge a nominal fee. 

Understanding Rug Materials

One key aspect to look for when shopping for rugs at The Loom Collection is the material of the rug. To choose the right material, consider the traffic your rug will receive, the texture you prefer, and your budget.

At The Loom Collection, we offer rugs in various materials, like jute, wool, and cotton. Understanding these materials can help you make a confident purchase.

  • Jute Rugs

Jute is a strong, soft, and shiny natural fibre spun into robust threads. Ideal for high-traffic and sunny areas like your living room, it creates durable rugs that are eco-friendly and lend a coastal or earthy vibe to any space.

  • Woollen Rugs

Wool has been producing top-quality rugs for centuries. This resilient fibre is easy to clean, dyes well, and has a long lifespan. Ideal for high-traffic spaces like the living room and dining room, our woollen rugs at The Loom Collection add a touch of elegance and warmth to any room.

  • Cotton Area Rugs

Cotton is an affordable and versatile material that's easy to clean and provides good insulation. Our cotton rugs at The Loom Collection are perfect for casual spaces like kids' bedrooms.

Long-Lasting Rugs 

Most natural fibre rugs at The Loom Collection are designed to last a long time. One feature that helps extend their lifespan is a rug backing. All our rugs have a full cotton backing and edging to protect the weave, improving their longevity and keeping them straight and flat, reducing trip hazards.

In addition to the rug backing, consider the pile – the depth of the rug’s fibres. Here are a few tips:

  • Low pile rugs are less plush but easier to clean.
  • Deep pile rugs feel more plush but may require more vacuuming.
  • Flat pile rugs reduce tripping hazards and wear less in high traffic areas.
  • Raised pile rugs add texture and visual interest but are better suited to low traffic areas.
