Does your room need a pick me up? Start with your flooring; you can add a great deal of pizazz to your living space by using area rugs. Area rugs provide colorful design and flair but it’s the element of warmth and coziness that makes them especially functional. Rugs of all sizes can be the perfect choice for homeowners who want to add depth and style to a room. One of the most important aspects when decorating your living space is choosing the right rug. Size, shape and color are the three main areas of importance when preparing to purchase a rug. You will want to choose a color and design that will make the room pop. The size of your rug should be at least six inches but no more than two feet from the wall on each side. Exposing some of your hardwood flooring or tiling will make the area feel larger. For smaller rooms, choose a rug that is either solid in color or a rug with a smaller print. Finally choose your rug based on its purpose, different rooms require different rug styles.
Rugs are an Investment
Most rug experts recommend buying the best rug you can afford. Look for good quality natural materials such as wool and silk, a general rule of thumb is to use the cost of the other furniture in the room as a guideline for how much to spend on your new area rug. Once you have set your price limit, add 10 percent to give your some flexibility. Start by looking through decorator magazines to get ideas for popular designs and current trends. Antique rugs can be expensive but you can often find contemporary versions of the same rug if you are willing to take the time to do the research on-line. One of the most important considerations to buying a rug is finding something that speaks to you, something that will please you ever time you look at it. Rugs are an investment that will bring years of beauty and enhance the warmth of your home.
Area Rug Care
Once you have decided upon the perfect rug for your individual style and needs, it is important to properly care for your new investment and take the necessary steps to reduce premature aging. The highly trained and skilled carpet cleaning professionals at Direct Carpet Cleaners recommend vacuuming your area rugs at least once per week to prevent dirt building up in the carpet fibers. Pay particular care to select the right cleaning products for your rugs and read instructions carefully. Purchase a non-slip pad to go underneath your rug to protect your flooring and reduce wear on your rug. If you are remodeling your home consider in-setting the rug in your marble, tile or wood floor so it sits flush with the new flooring. Rotate your rugs every 2 to 3 months to ensure that the wear pattern is evenly distributed. Most importantly, Direct Carpet Cleaners recommends a professional deep clean every 12 -18 months to keep your rugs looking brand new.
