Nanine Floor Rug August 24th, 2017 - 08:10:30
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.
Floor rugs can be used as a way to colorfully accent any space in your home. Given that there are so many patterns, sizes and manufacturers to choose from, finding the perfect one can seem difficult. Know what the rug is to be used for. If you plan on simply keeping your hardwood floors intact, a plain and inexpensive one is enough. If you plan on coordinating the rug to match with the decor of a room, more time and energy will be needed. Holidays, parties and even home staging are reasons to look at decorating with a rug. Whatever your reason may be, this is a good place to get tips on how to search for one.
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.
Choosing the best floor rugs for non high traffic areas is another matter. For bedrooms, bathrooms, dens and other low traffic areas, you can choose rugs based on style and personal preference. In this case, the best floor rug is going to be the one that you love the most - be that braided wool rugs, or oriental weavers sphinx rugs. The reason that durability doesn`t matter as much for rugs that will be in these areas is because they simply won`t see the type of traffic that other areas of the home will. Because of this, they will look good for years without much maintenance.
