Increasing the life of your area rug: Did you know that rugs wear out from the underside first? This is because the rug is constantly being rubbed and crushed against the floor when anyone walks on it. A rug pad will cushion the rug and keep it looking good for a lot longer than just having the rug on the floor. You don't want your new rug to age prematurely.
Adding area rugs is a great way to personalize a room, whether at home or in the office. Not only do they add shade and creative design to a room, they also enhance a room's mood and character. But besides its normal purpose as a floor covering, although rarely happening, a few people use area rugs as a wall décor instead of paintings. This is possible of course because of the wide range of designs, colors, shapes and sizes to choose from. Provided that you are an adventurous person and willing to try something new, you can frame it up and hang it to accentuate the other walls.
Area rugs come in so many different and unique styles it's sometimes hard to decide which type would best suit your needs. You may have an idea in mind as to which type of rug you'd like to purchase. Or you may need more detailed information to make the right choice. Some styles are named after the region or area where they originated. Others are known for certain characteristics or specific uses. Let's look at three different styles that hopefully will help you make an informed decision when shopping for a special rug.
