Light conditions, paint colors, proportions and flow of your room — all will affect how a rug looks at home. Reputable dealers will allow you to take a rug home for a day or two on approval.
Peek at the rugs in daylight and at night. If you’re not sure, look at a rug first thing in the morning when your eyes have a fresh outlook on the day.
Go with your gut and how the rug makes you feel. You should love it!
