Why Are Sisal Rugs So Popular?

Trying to add something stylish and cool to your house? Sisal rugs have been a popular decorative choice for years now. Whenever you look for what the current trend is, sisal comes up as this hot new thing. But it's been touted as being hot and new since the early 90s! So, what gives sisal its staying power as great rug material?

Its main draw is that it's natural (though you can buy a synthetic variety as well) and therefore a "green" decorative solution. Buyers of modern rugs are increasingly more environmentally conscious, making materials like sisal and even hemp very popular. Even if you buy sisal style rugs, which would include the synthetic variety, there are benefits to the material that other traditional rugs don't share.

A sisal style rug has incredible durability. It holds up better than other rugs in high traffic areas where people walk back and forth all day. Their ideal spot is a semi-outside portion of the house, such as the opening to a patio. Synthetic sisal makes for a great outdoor rug. This is actually one area where synthetic sisal outshines its natural counterpart. Natural sisal does not hold up well under moisture or humidity, making it a poor choice for an outdoor rug.

If you're in the market for a new rug that will last you for years, a sisal style rug might be exactly what you're looking for.
