September is a time of year where everything comes back. Football is back again, so are crisp fall days, and the oh-so coveted pumpkin spiced lattes. However, of all the things that come back in September, school is arguably one of the biggest things. This month, many parents find themselves embroiled in a new adventure: sending their kids off to college. Living in a new home comes with many challenges and trials, such as decorating it properly. Whether your child is living in a dorm room or an apartment, we have put together a rug-buying guide that is sure to fit, and keep them warm in these coming chilly days.
Of all the rugs on the market today, the 5′ x 7′ rug is the most popular among students. It is large enough to cover the main parts of the floor where you will be walking and doing things, but small enough to fit comfortably into a dorm room. For students with a roommate, this is a perfect choice.
The next most-popular rug size for students is the 4′ x 6′ rug, which is a tad smaller, but makes up for it in versatility. The smaller size allows it to be used as a personal rug, such as something at the side of your bed. For students living in a single, this rug would work perfect, as the rooms are bound to be smaller than a double.
For students who have an abnormally large room, or just really, really enjoy the feeling of a rig beneath their feet, the 6′ x 9′ rug is a great option. These rugs are the next-best thing to having carpeting installed, as they will easily reach across the room. The only consequence with these rugs will trap dirt and grime, and will have to be cleaned regularly to stay in good working condition.
The transition from high school to college may be tough, but we here at Bayside Carpet Cleaning want to make it easier, in any way that we can. For more carpet tips and tricks, be sure to check back to our blog every Tuesday and Thursday!
