Researching Rugs Before Buying
There's no doubt that rugs are an important part of any home, but when it comes time to buy, homeowners should take time to research first. It can be difficult to find just the right rug for each individual room because there are so many new rug designs on the market, so take a look around and see what choices are available in your budget rang before you buy. Below are a few other things to consider before selecting rugs for the home:
First, consider where the rugs will be placed. A rug in a high traffic area should be very durable and be able to withstand a high amount of traffic. Families with children and several pets should take this into consideration when selecting rugs. Choose a tough fiber rug that will not fade and should easily withstand heavy foot traffic and pets for a number of years.
Rugs in the bedroom area should feel and look luxurious, because odds are that the occupants will walk bare-footed over the rugs. The rugs should also cut down the noise and pad the floor. Consequently, a nice deep plush with thick insulation would suit a bedroom area. Carpets with extra thick insulation in the bedroom will reduce the outside noise considerably and allow the occupants to get a good night sleep.
Rugs in common areas like the living room or family room should match the decor. Select plush or Saxony style pile for these areas. Add a unique touch with color or try another type of informal pile.
Perhaps there are rooms in the house that get very cold during the winter. Many home owners find that adding heavy rugs to the room will help to insulate and raise the temperature in the room.
Of course, these are just a few helpful tips for you, but in the end, it really comes down to your personal taste, design plan, and the rugs that catch your eye. Just be sure to keep these tips in mind when shopping for rugs and you should have no problems getting the right rugs for your home.
