Faux Fur Rug Buyer’s Guide

If you are hoping to revamp a space in your home or office, a faux fur rug is one of the best ways to make a statement. Faux fur rugs are comfortable, chic, and can elevate the ambiance of any room to create a more stylish and sophisticated look — and with faux fur, you can do all this in an animal friendly way! Shopping for a faux fur rug can be intimidating, but we have all the information you need to decide on the right size, color, and brand for your needs.

What size Faux Fur Rug Should I Get?

When adding a rug to your space, deciding on the size and shape is the best place to start. The ideal rug size will depend on the area you are putting it in, your furniture layout, and whether it will be the only rug in the space. To determine the perfect size, measure your room carefully and tape out exactly where you think the rug should go. If you are hoping to layer your faux fur rug on top of a larger area rug, you will likely want to choose one that is at least half the size of your base rug so your new rug will stand out.

Best Rooms for a Faux Fur Rug

Faux fur rugs are extremely versatile, and as such, there are many different options for what rooms to adorn with these beautiful floor pieces. Faux fur rugs work great in bedrooms, as they are soft for bare feet, and they can also be a smart choice for playrooms or nurseries as they’re comfortable for young children to sit and lay on. If you would like to add a luxurious look to your office or living room, a faux fur rug can be a great way to do that as well. 

Best Colors for a Faux Fur Rug

Faux fur rugs come in a variety of colors, making them a fantastic way to express your unique sense of style in every room. If you are going for a neutral color scheme, a classic white or tan rug could be a good option. However, if you would like to get more playful, faux fur rugs come in pinks, blues, greens, and more. If you would really like to make a statement, consider a large area rug in a neutral color layered under a faux fur rug in a brighter tone to stand out.

How to Clean a Faux Fur Rug

Though it is important to check the care instructions for your specific rug, most faux fur rugs are quite easy to clean! For small stains and spot cleaning, a bit of soap and water will generally do the trick. For a deeper clean or to get out extra soiled spots, you can generally machine wash the rug and allow it to air dry before putting it back down.

Faux Fur Rug Buying Tips

Bringing a room together with the right furniture, rugs, and decor is an exciting process! Start by doing your research to make sure you are buying the right faux fur rug for your needs. Here are a few helpful tips to keep in mind when shopping for a faux fur rug for your space:


Decide on the size of rug you need.

Ultimately, the size of rug you are looking for will dictate every other aspect of the purchase process, so it is the best place to start! Measure the area where you would like a rug and determine exactly what size faux fur rug would complete the space.


Consider what color scheme you would like.

There are so many options for decorating with color, so you really can’t go wrong here—it is simply about deciding what color works best for your needs! If you are buying the rug to go in an existing area, consider what colors would go best in the space. If you plan to decorate around the rug, you will have more options for your color choices and you can select the rest of the furniture in the room to match your centerpiece faux fur rug.

Can you Vacuum a Faux Fur Rug?

Vacuuming your faux fur rug regularly is one of the best ways to keep it clean and looking like new. It is important to make sure that you use the vacuum cleaner’s high pile or thick carpet setting so it is able to properly vacuum the fibers. 

How to Wash a Faux Fur Rug

The great news about faux fur rugs is that they are typically quite easy to wash at home. Check your specific care instructions to be sure, but generally, you can wash a faux fur rug in your washing machine on a delicate cycle using gentle laundry detergent, then simply allow it to air dry before placing it back on the floor.

How to Fix a Matted Faux Fur Rug

If your faux fur rug becomes matted, fixing it is quite easy! Start by shaking out the rug to move the fibers around. Then, using a clean pet hair brush, brush the rug fibers in the opposite direction of their natural lay pattern to get them to stand up on their own. If it does not feel smooth, you can also combine a teaspoon of hair conditioner with two cups of water in a spray bottle and spritz this on the rug before brushing.

How to Remove Pet stains out of a Faux Fur Rug

Accidents happen, and if your pup has had one on your faux fur rug, don’t sweat it! To remove a stain from a rug, simply blot up as much of the liquid as possible, then spray a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water on the spot. Allow to sit for about a minute, then blot up the vinegar solution and repeat as necessary.
