Do you want to add colour and style to your home or office space? Floor rugs can brighten up any room. If you have a large open area, you use a floor rug to section it off, by highlighting the separate spaces. A floor rug can also be used to add colour to a neutral room making it into a brighter space.
Do you have slippery hardwood floors? A rug placed over a rug pad is a good choice, which can make the room safer for children or anyone prone to slipping. When considering a home renovation, adding floor rugs is a good way to see if you can accomplish your remodeling goals without making significant changes in your home, which will save money.
There are many varieties of floor rugs on the market. Most floor rugs have names that reflect the place in the world where the rug was made or the name may be based on the type of rug. For example, Oriental rugs, Tibetan rugs, and Persian rugs are named for the style of rug created in those areas of the world. Other floor rugs have names like the braided rug, shaggy rug or contemporary rug, which indicates the design, texture or style of the rug.
Floor rugs can be used in many different ways. You can get creative and use the rug for decorative purposes or the rug can be a functional part of your home. For example, if you have a formal dining room in your home, a contemporary floor rug can help set the tone for the room. If you changed to a shaggy rug, the room would have a different style, even if you do not change the furniture. If you have a high-traffic area in your home, with the constant pitter-patter of little feet, you may need a functional rug. This floor rug would need to be well-made so that it can stand the test of time.
When choosing a rug there are two common types of the market: natural rugs and synthetic rugs. Depending on the type of material used to make the floor rug, you will notice a difference in the texture and appearance. A number of different natural materials are used in the construction of floor rugs, including seagrass, jute, wool and bamboo. There are also several synthetic materials used for floor rugs, including acrylic, nylon, and viscose. Some floor rugs are made of a combination of materials.
Each type of material has its own set of benefits and problems. You need to determine the type of material that works best for your home. Generally, a hand-made rug of any material type will often be of a better quality than a machine-made rug. However, you need to evaluate each floor rug on its own merits.
Over time, your floor rug will become stained or dirty. After all, a rug may be subjected to constant foot traffic. A rug placed in a dining area or common area of the home may also have food or drinks spilled on them, at some time. Therefore, you want to get your rug cleaned on a regular basis. This is especially true if your rug is fragile or valuable.
Vacuuming is a great way to remove grime and dirt from your rug. In addition, you may want to rotate your rug so that all surfaces areas experience different levels of use. This can help to avoid your rug from having wear patterns from constant use. You may also consider moving your rug to another area of your home. Roll the rug up prior to transport. Do not fold the rug which could cause damage, that you might not be able to fix.
