Calantha Floor Rug August 22nd, 2017 - 18:13:07
If you are planning on selling your home, staging with floor rugs is an easy way to increase the appeal of your house to potential customers. Painting walls, purchasing furniture and art can give a home character, but simply putting down a rug can redefine an entire room. If you plan on having a party, using a rug can protect your existing floor or carpet while giving the room pizazz. In these fore instances, purchasing a rug may not be necessary. If the rug is not used all year round it will have to be carefully stored until it is needed. The use of a home staging company that rent them out may be a good idea in these cases.
There are two general kinds of material used in rug making, natural and synthetic. You can tell the value, sturdiness, feel, and look of floor rugs by the materials that they`re made of. Examples of natural materials are animal or plant fibers, including wool, cotton, sisal, jute, sea grass or bamboo. Synthetic materials on the other hand are man-made materials like viscose, rayon, nylon, acrylic or polypropylene/olefin. Each type of material has its advantages and disadvantages depending on how you want to use the floor rug. These materials can also be mixed together to make one rug, like a blend of wool and cotton, or natural and synthetic materials.
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.
If you are like me; your house is painted in neutral colors, your home furnishings are timeless, and your wall accents are very classic pieces. A home that has a neutral theme, like mine, deserves an eccentric accent piece. A patterned rug. Purchasing a patterned rug can be daunting, there are so many options. There is a rug in nearly every pattern you can think of and in various different colors. Placing a patterned rug in any room is a great way to bring an accent piece to your home without taking away from your other carefully chosen home decor pieces. I would suggest that busy patterned rugs be placed in a larger room, so that the patterned rug does not become an eye-sore of sorts.
