Floor Rug August 22nd, 2017 - 17:01:11
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.
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.
The functionality and decorative aspect of floor rugs is limited only by your imagination, as you can practically use a rug for any logical purpose in your home. You can either use a floor covering as living room centerpiece or you can get one to blend with the entire room`s theme. In high traffic areas, you can use floor rugs to protect the floor if it`s made of expensive or nicely finished wood. However, you have to make sure the design you choose is durable and not just stylish. Preferably, the rug should be hand-made, because hand-made types are generally more durable than machine-made rugs, although this is not always the case.
Most floor rugs are made of various materials like wool, nylon, polyester as well as other synthetic materials. Its worth while to take note of this when deciding on the floor rug and to know if it will be appropriate for your needs. You need to also bear in mind to protect your floor rugs from sunlight. Most floor rugs can begin to lose their color and start to fade if subjected to long durations of direct sunlight, so keep this in mind before installing them. So take into account all these factors while choosing, purchasing and using rugs.
