Children and pets can have a significant impact on the lifespan of an area rug. When it comes to colours and fabrics, it is of primary importance to consider your lifestyle before choosing a rug. Wool rugs clean easily and patterns can help hide spills, stains, and hair from shedding pets. Alternatively, more delicate fabrics are better suited to more formal living areas.
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.
Antique rugs generally are more fragile than newer rugs, yet they are usually more valuable. In order to maintain your investment, you should follow proper care such as the right cleaning, rotation once a year and the right rug pad. Not all rug pads will protect your antique rug and carpet as best as possible.
