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.
Making the kitchen look warm and comfortable can be done using round rugs. You will be surprised to see that there are many specifically designed round rugs for kitchen use. These rugs incorporate themes and motifs like fruits, vegetables, barnyard animals like hens and roosters, herbs and spices, as well as kitchen items like coffee cups and teapots. There are also kitchen rugs made using vintage posters art which bring you back to the good old days. These rugs look charming especially when placed on the kitchen floors.
Since floor rugs have so many uses and functions, there are a wide variety of types to choose from. Some floor coverings are named after the region where they came from or regions that they were popular in, while some types are named after their specific use or certain characteristics. This is why we have names like Persian rugs, Oriental rugs, Tibetan rugs, Flokati rugs and Southwestern which are characterized by designs and patterns that have been known to originate from those regions. There are also floor coverings that are commonly referred to as contemporary rugs, braided rugs, outdoor rugs, shaggy rugs and more.
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.
