At Miss Amara online, rugs are available in a wide range of varieties including traditional to modern, synthetic to natural fibre and in different sizes to suit your needs. What’s more, our rugs are designed from top quality materials to ensure they can withstand rugged use.


How Can You Choose the Right Rug?


Choosing the right rug may seem like a challenging task, especially if you consider that there are hundreds of options for you to pick from. However, with the right information, you should be able to narrow down your search to the most appropriate rug for your needs.

Big or small

The first thing you need to think about is the size of the rug you wish to buy. Generally, the size depends on where you wish to put the rug. For example, in a living room area, the size of the rug should be such that it is a foot wider than your sofa on both sides. It should also be able to cover the room’s seating area completely.


Of course, each living space is unique and may require something more appropriate. But don’t worry, at Miss Amara, we have rugs as small as 230x160 centimetres, while others are as large as 3x4 meters.


Type is key 

A good runner rug for the office is not necessarily an ideal option for your bedroom or kitchen. You have to choose the type that best suits the area of placement. A low-pile rug is often ideal for the office because it allows for easy movements. 


Jute rugs Wellington feature natural fibre and offer high resistance to stain and wear meaning they are more suited for high traffic areas like the kitchen. Plush, high-pile or shag rugs such as those made of wool are ideal for low traffic areas like the bedroom.

Think colours

The colour of the rug you pick can have a huge impact on the overall theme and decor of the room. As a general rule of thumb, bright rugs should not be used in high traffic areas that are likely to experience things like spills and dirty feet. That means white or brightly coloured rugs are not ideal for the kitchen, kids’ room or dining room. 


Rugs with a dark or patterned design are often the best fit for kids’ rooms and kitchens because they tend to hide stains and dirt. Additionally, you should pick rug colours that complement your furniture and decor. If you are unsure of the best colour for your rugs in Wellington, do not hesitate to get in touch with us for quick assistance on styling.

The climate 

Being aware of the climate changes in your area is another important consideration before buying a rug in Wellington. The good news is that we have indoor and outdoor rugs designed to withstand the hot and cold seasons alike. Durable mould and sun-resistant fibres ensure that your outdoor rug will not go through the common wear and tear that would otherwise be the norm.


How Can You Clean Rugs at Home?


Small rugs are easier to clean because they do not use up a lot of water nor do they require a lot of scrubbing. Larger rugs in Wellington may be more challenging to clean. But if you are determined to do it, here is a general procedure.

1. Gather tools

  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Bristle brush
  • Bucket
  • Garden hose
  • Shampoo

2. Use the vacuum

Spread the rug in an open area. Ideally not your garden or any place with plants. Start vacuuming it from end to end to get rid of loose dirt and debris.

3. Wet the rug

Wet the rug with some water and apply the shampoo before you start scrubbing from one end to the other.

4. Use the garden hose

After scrubbing every inch of the rug, use the garden hose to wash it clean with running water.

5. Rinse and leave to dry

Place the rug in an elevated position to facilitate easier rinsing. Afterwards, you can put the rug in the garage or leave it in an open area to dry. Only bring it back indoors once it is completely dry.
