How To Choose A 6x9 Rug

6x9 area rugs have a multitude of applications within your home. Start with deciding on the room you are shopping for, and then decide which size, style, and colors are best for your space. 6x9 rugs are typically used for small to medium-sized living rooms, bedrooms, and lounge areas that are 11x13 or larger. For a living room, the rug can be used as an anchor piece, topped with a coffee table or ottoman and the seating selection placed partially on the rug to allow for ample room to move between furniture. For a bedroom, and more specifically full and queen-sized beds, the rug can be placed horizontally near the top of the bed, vertically next to the side of the bed, or horizontally at the top of the bed so just a portion of the rug is exposed. 6x9 rugs are an easy solution to act as a starting point for any seating group or small dining area, in order to have a soft touch underfoot and accentuate your decor.

What Color Rug Should I Get?

When deciding what color rug you should get for any space in your home, you want to take into consideration the furniture, decor and lighting that is available in that space and/or the overall look you are trying to achieve. Take a look at the colors of the furniture and other accents within your space and if you are looking for a cohesive design, match the color of your rug to these pieces. For a more balanced, offset look, choose a complementary, yet contrasting color that blends nicely with your surroundings. Dark colors often make rooms feel smaller, while lighter designs open up a space and make it feel bright and airy. For a smaller room, try a light-colored option with a simple damask or trellis pattern to bring a more expansive feel to your space. If you’re concerned about your rugs in a high-traffic area, such as a bedroom, dining room. or hallway, a darker color such as black, brown, navy blue, or even red, is the best choice to hide any stains, spills, or dirt that may be tracked into your home.

What's The Best Material For A 6x9 Rug:

Material choice is incredibly important when selecting a new rug. Another key element in making a decision is understanding the level of foot traffic the room you are selecting the rug for will see. Rugs crafted from natural fibers such as jute or wool can stand up to everyday living and the stress from constant use, while maintaining their luster and form. Man-made synthetic fiber rugs are ideal for hallways, playrooms, and patio spaces and are lauded for their ease of cleaning. Equally as important, the pile height of your rug should be taken into consideration. A bedroom is perfectly accented with a thick, shag pile or viscose rug for a touch of softness, though it can be tougher to clean, while a short, dense pile of polypropylene or cotton is ideal for dining rooms, bedrooms, and living spaces and is easy to vacuum or spot clean as needed.

Finding The Right Style For Your 6x9 Rug:

When choosing a new 6x9 rug, color and pattern are the most defining factors. If most of the furniture in your room is a solid color, a patterned rug is a great choice to add some depth and unexpected style to your space. Ideal for larger rugs in a variety of rooms, lattice, concentric, or ikat rugs bring clearly structured patterns, especially when paired with a bold color. Floral rugs bring a touch of refined beauty and elegance, ideal for bedrooms and living spaces. Abstract patterns, stripes, and bold geometrics offer an eye-catching statement and can act as a visual focal point in a wide variety of interior design schemes. For 6x9 rugs in more upscale and modern-themed living spaces, dark blue, gray, green and black are stunning options. For relaxed and low-key areas such as bedrooms or lounge spaces, patterns in cream, pink, crimson, and yellow are all possibilities. After you’ve chosen the color realm you would like to stick to, it's time to decide on the style of rug that best fits your space. Shag rugs are tufted or woven and have a deep, thick pile to add softness to a space. Hand-knotted rugs are intricately crafted by artisans who hand-knot each piece of yarn on a loom, making for a durable and long-lasting option. Flatweave and tufted rugs offer a short pile, with either a flat or dense feel. Typically hand or machine woven, these rugs are great for high-traffic areas and pair well with a rug pad to keep them in place.
