Replacing hard wood floors and over all cleaning of wall-to-wall carpets can be a big job and is expensive. Area rugs are also good cover ups for floors or carpets that are stained and are hard to clean. But besides its bandage-like characteristic, area rugs as well as carpets can reduce sound wave travels inside a room. Unlike hard wood floors that tend to bounce off the sounds of your televisions or mp3 players, area rugs and carpets help suck up the noise. Sound reduction is helpful especially to those who live in apartment buildings. This would prevent your neighbors from knocking on your door and disturb you watching your favorite TV shows just to shut you up.
Tibetan area rugs originated in the mountain regions of Tibet and just across the border in Nepal. They are carefully hand crafted using Tibetan knots, traditional knots, or a combination of textile weaving methods. They are generally made of the finest natural silk fibers and the softest refined wool. This combination of fibers produces a luxuriantly soft pad with a light catching luminescent sheen to it. Artisans use numerous designs of customary plants that have symbolic meanings like bamboo fronds, forsythia branches, plum blossoms, and cypress trees.
Although the rug is what you see on the surface, there is much more that goes into the actual installation process. As you can imagine, a rug is not simply laid on top of the concrete or wood that is already in place. While this could be done, it is not something that you want to do if you want the job completed the right way. When it comes down to it, the rug pad that is used is just as important as what you see on the surface. If the correct rug pad is used, you will recognize this in a number of different ways. Of course, if the rug pad is left out, or a low quality option is used, you are going to notice this as well; just not in the same way.
