Just about any home can be improved with the use of area rugs of good design and quality. These bound carpets come in many sizes from 2 feet by 3 feet to room size or common sizes like 6 foot by 9 feet or 4 feet by 6 feet. They come round square rectangular oval and in runners for steps and hallways. Wall to wall carpet in 12 and 15 foot goods can be cut and bound into area rugs or the makers can weave or tuft these small carpets as the end result. Where ever you need a little break from hard surface flooring or to cover a worn area in carpet consider adding an area rug.
Cover Worn Carpet. We'll all face worn carpets at some point and lets face it carpet replacement is a big investment that we can't all afford. An affordable area rug is a perfect way to give your room an entire new look and disguise that worn rug. Most rugs wear in the middle of the room where they get the heavier traffic and the outer foot or two often still look relatively new. So buy a huge area rug that compliments the carpet already on the floor leaving just the outer edge that's less worn exposed. You'll be amazed at how different your room looks. Area rugs are also a good way to hide a damaged or stained area of carpet.
Oriental carpets were originally woven and tufted by hand to cover the ground or floors in tents and buildings with earth or stone floors. They added warmth and color to the lives of those living in these dwellings. European castles and lesser homes often had earth or stone floors covered with things like rushes or straw and when travellers brought back rugs from the East those who could afford them bought these carpets to enhance their homes as well. Settlers coming to America brought rugs with them or the knowledge to make them. Soft woven or tufted flooring covers are used around the world to add comfort color and style to homes and commercial spaces.
Area rugs are ideal for protecting wood or tile floors and bring warmth texture and depth to any space they occupy. Choosing the area rug that is right for your space your lifestyle and your décor preferences is largely a matter of personal taste and the only real rules that should be followed are those guidelines you establish for what you want out of your area rugs and what will work best for you and your family.
Rug composition. Rugs are made of many different materials. Many of them today thanks to the development of synthetic fibers are inexpensive to own. Cheap area rugs can be used in spaces where there is much more traffic and where the rug may need to be replaced occasionally. Cheap area rugs do not need to look cheap. The man made materials often have more variety than more expensive Persian rugs. Persian rugs are known for their beauty and durability but may be beyond the budget of many homeowners. Discount rugs are often made of synthetic fiber which repels water better than Persian rugs so may be more appropriate as kitchen rugs or bathroom rugs.
When the chairs are pulled out from the table to be used all of the legs should remain on your dining room area rug which means your rug needs to be big enough to accommodate a space larger than the footprint of your table with the chairs pushed in. A good rule for this is to seek out an area rug for your dining room that is at least four feet wider and longer than the footprint of your dining set.
