People usually ask all sorts of questions regarding area rugs. Here are three common questions asked, and some ideas that will help to find the ideal area rug for your house or next interior design job.
What do I search for in an area rug?
The quality of the wool that is used: Turkish wool and New Zealand wool are considered the highest quality of wools. Did you have any idea that the best wool comes from sheep shorn in the spring, as they’re fed fresh grass, producing softer wool? Sheep that are shorn in the wintertime are fed dry grass, producing dryer wool that feels coarse.
How do you take care of your rug?
With the right maintenance, hand-woven area rugs may stand the test of time and become family heirlooms that are passed down from one generation to another. Bi-annual hand washing of the area rug is important. Use a skilled professional rug cleaner who specializes in handwashing hand-woven area rugs with pure vegetable soaps and water. Also, you’ll want to use a company that has a good reputation and a company that has been in business for more than a decade.
How do I start furnishing my house?
So you are ready to start a design project in your house. Where do you begin? With all of the choices that are available in furniture fabrics, colors, and styles, this process may be overwhelming. The best recommendation includes starting from the bottom up. Shopping for area rugs may inspire you with a larger jumping-off point. Browsing a room-sized area rug will help to visualize color and pattern and how it’s going to work in your house. Investing in an area rug also will get you excited and provide you immediate gratification because you can choose it in the gallery and take it to your home. Rather than shopping from a tiny fabric sample, it’s possible to be inspired by the area rug and choose furniture and other room accessories.
