Calantha Floor Rug August 22nd, 2017 - 17:29:29
Every room in your house can benefit from the inclusion of floor rugs. In the bathroom tile or linoleum floors can be particularly slippery when wet. Rugs can help to absorb water and thereby prevent floors from becoming wet and slick. Something as simple as a rug placed intelligently next to the bathtub can save you from injury when getting out of a bath or shower. A rug that saves you from a single slip or fall has more than paid for itself. In the dining room, a rug placed underneath your dining room table can prevent the scratches to your floor than can occur from frequently moving your dining chairs in and out from under the table.
The use of rugs has been recorded since the earliest days of our ancestors. They have been in use since the dawn of civilization itself. Archeologists found remnants of crudely woven reed rugs that early men were using. As their knowledge expands, they were able to discover other materials that ca be made into rugs, too. Animal hides were excellent rugs, too. A Russian archeologist was responsible for discovering the oldest surviving floor rug. It was found accidentally while they were excavating an ancient burial site in 1949. The carpet, known as "Pazyryk", dates back to the 5th century BC. It also drew a lot of attention because of its exceptional design.
Buying a floor rug is all about style. You need to know what you are looking for, plus, you need to know what is available. As you can imagine, even if the first store that you look in has a large selection of rugs, there are plenty more to be found elsewhere. It is very important that you have a good grip on what type of area rugs are available to you. The more that you know the better your flooring will turn out in the end.
Determining the purpose of looking for a rug is essential before devoting any time. Hardwood floors are considered by some to be the crowning jewel of their home, so keep them protected by scratches and nicks with an area rug is a good idea. Floor rugs come in a diverse selection of patterns, colors and sizes. Many manufacturers only produce rugs in set standard sizes, so you should consider the area that needs to be covered before looking at any designs. Using a floor pad will help to keep the rug in place, thus keeping the protected area of flooring safe.
