Why rugs are important
There are many ways to upgrade the look of any space. You may decide to go for a new paint job, replace a few pieces of furniture or lay down brand new flooring. Any renovation project will either 1) require professional contractors, 2) cost an arm and a leg, 3) take all of your time or 4) all of the above. A cleverly chosen area rug on the other hand is an easy and convenient way to add pizzazz to any space minus all the angst. Other advantages offered by area rugs include:
Rugs protect expensive hardwood floors from stains, scratches and whatever damage may be inflicted on them. They also provide a cushioning effect and protect breakable items from shattering into tiny, unrepairable pieces. This same cushioning effect also aids elderly family members from slippage and the pain and discomfort of walking on cold hard unyielding floors. That’s overall protection for everybody.
Apart from simply being functional, area rugs are an integral component of interior design. They pull-in the many elements in a room into one coherent theme, complementing colors and textures in order to convey a certain feel, a certain mood – a certain atmosphere that will bring about different reactions from different people. Outrageous Rugs offers an exciting variety of styles, colors, shapes and patterns that will allow you to mix and match according to each room’s purpose. A child’s room can be adorned with themed rugs (animals, numbers, alphabets, sports, star, geometric shapes, playful shags etc.). A dining room can be made to look more formal by simply choosing a plush (Saxony) carpet or it can get that country cottage feel by going for Berbers.
Rugs provide comfort for tired feet! They have this soft, warm, cushiony feel that encourages you to walk barefoot after a long day of standing around at work. Shags are so inviting that they practically beckon you to lie down and enjoy the pleasurable feeling of home.
Big screen TVs, air conditioning, computers, speaker phones modern sound systems, and all the people talking at the same time make our living spaces and work places hubs of background noise. Carpet flooring or area rugs absorb some of the sound energy and help reduce the kind of noise pollution that we are all exposed to on a daily basis. They also mask footsteps and other annoying sounds from all the movement from upper floors.
Safety is another feature for which carpet flooring is favored in homes and offices. Slipping on hard, shiny floors is a major risk for children, the elderly and even healthy adults. Carpet flooring and rugs reduce the probability of major injuries from these kinds of accidents. Rugs provide the friction that prevents slips and the cushioning that reduces serious damage or injuries.
Indoor Air Quality
Contrary to popular belief that carpets expose us to allergens in the air, the carpet fibers actually trap dust and other particles that would otherwise be airborne if we had hardwood or ceramic tile flooring. The trapped dust particles do not get blown around into our breathing zone – they stay trapped until sucked out by regular vacuuming. This leaves the air we breathe free of allergy-causing particles.
Choosing the Perfect Area Rug
A beautiful rug adds visual interest to any room and gives your space more character, often reflecting your own personality and sense of style. But considering the staggering variety of choices, how do you go about choosing one?
Consider where you will use the area rug and whether it will actually function as floor covering or hang on the wall or adorn your bed. Is it for inside the house or an outdoor space? Low or high traffic? Answering these types of questions will help narrow down your choices.
Decide whether you want natural or synthetic fibers. Weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each. The most common fibers used are nylon, acrylic, polypropylene, polyester, wool, silk, cotton, sisal, jute, sea grass, coir and mountain grass.
Style & Construction
Do you want handcrafted rugs or would you prefer machine-made rugs? Do you want it flat woven or are you looking for luxurious shags? Do you want a contemporary look or are you going for the exotic? Handcrafted rugs and carpets are generally more expensive because of the labor-intensive nature of their creation. You will come across terminologies like hand-knotted, hand-tufted, hand-woven – all referring to carpets individually crafted by artisans. Under this category you may also come across designs from different ethnic origins, like Persian, Tibetan, Indian, Turkish.
Color, Size, Shape and Pattern
You can pick really loud colors and outrageous shapes to make a statement. You can go for the cool greens and blues that whisper tranquility the moment you enter your home. You can create separate areas with several smaller rugs or pick a really big one and then layer on smaller area rugs for effect. The possibilities are endless!
You may be able to find really cheap carpeting and area rugs, and depending on the kind of maintenance you provide you may get a few months use out of them. But remember the saying, “we get what we pay for”. This can prove especially true when it comes to carpet flooring and area rugs. The really high-quality ones will of course be priced accordingly but they will also come with many, many years of good use and much better warranties. Carpeting today are designed and constructed to last for a really long time, ensuring that you get value for money in as much the same way as purchasing other major home furnishings or appliances.
Installation and Replacement
Carpets are easy to install but if you do not have the skill or the inclination to do it, installation fees are much lower than for laying down stone and other types of flooring. Replacing them is also a breeze, especially if you use carpet tiles. With carpet tiles, an added advantage is that if they get soiled or damaged, you only need to replace the damaged pieces without having to rip out the entire floor.
