Picking a White Braided Rug

Below, we’ve highlighted our favorite tips for picking the right white braided area rug for your home. If you’ve already found the perfect rug, skip to the last section about rug pads before you hit the checkout. Otherwise, keep reading to get inspired:
Color and Pattern
Do you want a solid white braided rug, an off-white braided rug, or a blue, black, or red and white braided rug? If you’re not sure, it helps to examine the existing color palette in the room that you’re decorating for inspiration. List the colors and shades you’re working with, and then consider what you’d like a bit more of on the floor.
Don’t forget to think about adding a pattern to your rug. Patterns help break up monotony caused by solid textiles, giving your space an enhanced visual appeal.
Material and Durability
Consider the activity and exposure levels in your space. How much soil, moisture, pet/child messes, and shoe traffic will your new rug face and how do you plan to keep it clean? Look at the material that each rug option is made from and check out the cleaning requirements to be sure it’s a good fit.
A white cotton braided rug, for example, might work better in spaces with high moisture exposure than a white braided jute rug.
Dimensions and Shape
Measure the room that you’re decorating to get a feel for the best dimensions for your rug. Generally, you want to keep 24” between the edges of your rug and the walls to prevent a cramped look. So, an 8x10 braided white rug would work well in a room that’s at least 12’x14’, while a white braided 9x12 rug requires at least 13’x16’ of floorspace.
Shape can help your rug fit into the environment better. For example, a white braided rug runner can work well in a hallway, kitchen, or bedroom.
A rug pad will add years to the life of your white braided rug. Pads prevent sliding and friction damage while adding a layer of padding and insulation for your floors. We recommend that you add a pad to your cart before checkout unless your rug’s listing specifically states that it does not need one.
