Having an area rug is a way to add some style to any room in your home. Some people want their rug to be more subtle while others want a little flare in their area rug design. The good part about an area rug is that if you change your décor in a few years you can purchase a new rug to go with the new feel of your room. If you are in the market for an area rug there are tons of different factors to think about. Tough Carpet Cleaning is going to go over just a few of the things that you will want to consider with you today.
Common Area Rug Sizes
Knowing what size of area rug to purchase can be hard to determine. Every person has their own unique style and ideas of what the rug should look like and what portion of the room it should feel. There are some basic tips out there that designers agree on though when picking out the size of your rug. The bigger the rug is the larger your room will appear. If you want to divide your room into different sections you can use two different rugs to help you divide it. If you want just one rug in your room you will want to measure your room first. As a loose rule you will want your rug two feet smaller than the width and two feet smaller than the length of your room. You will want to keep at least 18 inches of bare floor exposed by the rug’s edge.
Hypoallergenic & Other Area Rug Materials
There are tons of different materials that you can select from when purchasing an area rug. You will want to evaluate the differences in the materials and make a selection that works best for your home. Following are a few of the most popular types of area rugs materials:
• Wool: Wool is one of the most common materials used for rugs. They are extremely durable and very soft. They will repel stains and water better than other material. Wool area rugs are great in high traffic areas.
• Cotton: Cotton area rugs are less expensive than wool rugs. They are easy to clean. They do not wear well over long periods of time.
• Sisal, Jute, Sea Grass: These natural grasses and fibers make great area rugs. They are very strong and free from chemical processing. They can be coarse and are difficult to clean.
• Synthetics: Synthetic man-made fibers like viscose, nylon, and polypropylene are frequently used to make rugs that mimic natural fibers. They are easy to clean and very family friendly. They do not always feel luxurious though.
Patterned or Solid Color Area Rug
You will also need to decide if you want a patterned area rug or a solid color area rug. The style of your home and the room you are purchasing the area rug for will need to be taken into account when you decide what is going to be best for you. Personal taste has more to do with this selection than anything else.
