8 Types of Rugs and Their Distinct Advantages


Buying a rug for your interior or exterior space can seem like a challenge. There are so many different sizes, shapes, sizes, and materials, it can almost make your head spin. But before you have a meltdown while rug shopping, let us help you narrow down your options. Below are some of the many different types of rugs out there, along with the advantages of each.

  1. Cotton Rugs

If you’re looking to add a casual rug to your space, you can count on a cotton rug. What makes them a great option is the fact that they’re inexpensive, stain resistant, long-lasting. To top it off, cotton rugs are available in so many different colors and patterns due to their popularity.

  1. Animal Hide Rugs

Animal hide rugs give a nice, earth-y feel to any space while giving a design some shape. Not only do they look great in rustic spaces but can also fit in well in traditional, contemporary, and eclectic spaces. If you’re wanting a vegan option, there are faux animal hide options as well.

  1. Faux Fur Rugs

Faux fur rugs may shed a bit and wear down overtime, but if they’re well cared for, they can look stunning for quite some time. This type of rug offers texture, warmth, and comfort in an interior design quite effortlessly. Not to mention, they look fantastic in just about any design.

  1. Jute & Bamboo Rugs

Want a long-lasting rug that has simple, natural, or coastal flair? A jute or bamboo rug might be for you. Apart from looking stunning on their own, a jute or bamboo rug can be used as a layer underneath a smaller rug.

  1. Wool Rugs

A wool rug is sure to provide excellent quality as they hold up well in high-traffic areas of the house. Not to mention, wool is very soft. While genuine wool rugs can be on the pricey end, you can get a faux wool rug that gives the same vibe in your space. Regardless of your style, there are plenty of wool rugs for you out there!

  1. Silk Rugs

If you’re wanting a rug that offers oriental flair or a beautiful pattern, you can count on a silk rug. They may not be great for high-traffic areas as they’re delicate and not the easiest to clean. However, they offer some of the best aesthetics and are fit for traditional designs.

  1. Microfiber Rugs

Microfiber rugs offer a plush feel that is similar to that of a more-expensive wool rug. The inexpensive cost of microfiber rugs makes them highly sought after. To top it off, they’re relatively stain resistant and durable, making them ideal for homes with kids and pets.

  1. Polypropylene Rugs

If you want something thinner and cheaper than a wool rug but still soft, a polypropylene rug would be a good pick for you. Add one of these rugs to a high-traffic part of the home as these rugs are generally resistant to fading and easy to clean.


It’s not always easy finding the perfect rug for your home. With thousands of options at hand, it can seem virtually impossible to find the one you think would look best in your space. The good news is, by researching the different types of rugs out there, you can get a better idea of what you want (and what you don’t want) for your home.
