There’s something so special about items or products that have a history or story behind them. For instance, items that have been around for so long that are even older than you.

People seem to be loving the idea of going back to the past and reliving certain periods of their lives. It’s probably because of the events that had transpired in 2020, but whatever the reason is, it’s a fact that things that vintage stuff will not go out of style.
Vintage rugs have a distinct appeal to them that no matter how rustic they may look, they would always add sophistication to any space. Using vintage pieces definitely add a sense of achievement especially if it’s something that no one else has. They are also great conversation starters and would help you easily break the ice.
There are factors to consider when choosing a vintage rug.
There’s the price factor, the wear factor, and definitely the size of it and how well it would look in a room or space.
So, how do you choose your vintage rug? Here are some tips.
Find some inspiration.
It’s best if you already have a design or pattern in mind because once you’re ready to purchase, these inspirations will come in handy. It will be easier for you to decide if you already have a color or palette you want for your space.
Find the right size.
Measure the room you want to place your rug in. Rugs act as frames for your furniture so it should be a piece that will fit comfortably.
Set a budget.
