Picking the Best Fruit Area Rugs for Your Home
There’s nothing worse than buying the wrong rug for your home. With such a wide selection of fruit pattern area rugs to choose from, it’s tough to know what to choose. The color, size, and material need to be right for your home so that you can love your rug for years to come.
We’re here to help with tips for finding the best fit for your home, no matter what. Keep reading to get inspired.
Color and Style
Your rug should match or complement the colors and style in the room you're decorating. Look at the colors already in the room and pick a rug that fits that palette for a good match. And consider the style of your home to choose the best fruit-themed area rugs for the space you’re decorating.
If your home uses a traditional style, look for area rugs with fruit-themed designs in an oriental pattern, for example.
Material and Durability
Fruit area rugs aren't as pretty if you can't keep them clean, so you'll want the right material and durability for the space you're decorating. For instance, if you're using the rug as a doormat, you'll likely want indoor/outdoor material that's durable enough for heavy exposure to moisture and soil. The same goes for kitchen area rugs with fruit designs since the kitchen can be a messy zone.
Consider the soil, moisture, shoe traffic, and mess exposure your rug will be exposed to, and choose a material that can stand up to it.
Rug Dimensions and Shape
Measure the space you're decorating and pick a rug that will leave around 24" of space between the edges of the rug and the wall. And think about the best shape for your area. Round fruit rugs go well with other round features, like a round table or a chandelier, for example. If you’d like an unusual shape, you might consider something like a lemon area rug in the shape of a lemon wedge.
Rug pads prevent early signs of wear to the backing and pile of your rug. They also keep your rug in place while adding an extra layer of padding and insulation to your floors. We recommend adding a rug pad to your cart for each of the fruit area rugs you purchase for your home.
