Buying An Area Rug In Victoria

Before starting your search for your area rug, take time to consider what you feel you need in a rug. To help you in your deliberations, we would like to give you an indication of what is available.


Traditional rugs are the most enduring and beautiful and will suit most decorative styles. Modern rugs are usually bolder in colour and design, but can become dated as you decorating tastes change. “Transitional” rugs are usually milder in colouring and design and here at Keystone Rugs can be custom made to your specification.


Most area rugs are made to a standard size such as 5 ft. x 8 ft., 8 ft. x 10 ft., 9 ft. x 12 ft. Originally rugs were made larger to cover most of the floor area of a room, but it is now considered that the rug is an accent piece to be placed in front of the furniture and you will find the most popular size is 5 ft. x 8 ft.


Whilst man-made fibres are used in some area rugs, the best material by far is wool, giving a more luxurious feel, being easier to maintain and having a much longer life.


Please remember to be flexible regarding your colour choice as you will be extremely lucky to find an exact match in a ready made rug. Again, you can order a custom rug from us which will give you a better chance at having the colour you wish.

Once you have narrowed down your choices, please call in to our store at 3198 Douglas Street, Victoria, where you are welcome to take home a rug to try in your own surroundings before committing to a purchase.
