Today more and more people are choosing hardwood, laminate and tile for their main flooring choices. This is because they generate a higher return on value and a more natural and appealing look. Even if you do decide to go with a hard surface flooring you will still want to utilize area rugs throughout your home. The most common areas for using these rugs would include hallways, entry ways, dining rooms and living rooms. Having area rugs in these rooms each has a different purpose. For instance, an entry way rug will help reduce the amount of dirt, water and sand that is tracked through the house, while rugs in hallways will help reduce the risk of wearing down the floors finish in such a high traffic area. A living room typically uses an area rug to help create more comfort, warmth and to reduce sound. Some people will even use rugs in areas where their is wall to wall carpet to protect it. When using an area rug, it is important to use an area rug pad. Knowing where and why you will use the rug will help you choose which pad to use.
Tips for Using Vacuum Tools - If you choose to use a vacuum tool attachment in lieu of the actual vacuum cleaner itself, take care not to use excessive suction. Many vacuum cleaners allow you to control the amount of suction that is used in such situations; set yours so that it's not sucking too hard on your area rug. Watch Out for the Fringe - The fringed border of an area rug should be avoided when vacuuming. Fringe can fray or even get wrapped up around the beater brush of a vacuum cleaner. Nothing detracts from the appearance of a gorgeous rug quite like stray pieces of fringe, so always use caution.
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.
