Best Overall Rug

1. Zora Natural

Best Features: - can complement beige and gray color schemes - best type of rug for bedroom because of its softness - great for hardwood floors

Size: 96"W x 120"D x 0.79"H

How a Pro Recommends Using It: "It's easy to clean (but not foolproof; stains may not come out if they're tougher and have set in completely!). Because of the lighter color and synthetic, easier-to-clean polypropylene, this works great for guest stays in spare bedrooms."- Courtney Marquez, LS Designer

Featured Review: "The rug design goes over nice on hardwood floors. Big enough to take some of the echo out of a room." - Adam N
