Major retailers that sell area rugs often have print catalogs. Many also have an online presence. Utilize whatever mediums are available before venturing out to a physical location. This will save you time as you will have an idea of a particular store`s inventory before making a trip. If you plan on matching a rug to an existing color scheme, bring samples and swatches so that they can be accurately matched up. Ask specific questions about fabrics and weaves. If you see something that you like, ask if there is anything else similar in stock. As a consumer, it is your responsibility to express your needs if you want to get what you are looking for. If you are able to do that then then you are certain to find a great item.
Floor rugs are often times under rated, but in reality, they are very important in making today`s homes look better. Designers will often look to place rugs to quickly but effectively liven up a dull area. They are made in different styles, colors, materials, patterns or designs, and prices. Some people even treat floor rugs as investment, like buying those expensive oil paintings of the masters. I wouldn`t blame you, though, if you may think of draping your beautiful rugs on your shoulders to complete you look for tonight.
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.
You can use your floor rugs longer if you take care of them correctly. Rugs placed on the floor are magnet to stains and dirt. You can`t just sweep dirt off your rugs, you have to vacuum them daily. Be careful of liquids that can cause stains on your rugs if they`re accidentally spilled. There are commercial cleaning agents that can be bought on the market. White vinegar mixed with cold water is said to be an effective cleaning agent. Needless to say, you also need an absorbent clean cloth along with this mixture to clean stains. Find other uses of everyday household items, like toothbrushes. If you rub the cloth to remove the stain, it will only spread the dirt and stains more.
