Rug Sizes. The last thing that you will want to consider when purchasing contemporary area rugs are the size you need. Many people prefer a larger area rug in their living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens, with smaller rugs throughout the hallways and bathrooms of the home. There are both circular rugs and rectangular rugs available, however, allowing you to choose he style that you like best. Circular area rugs are a nice twist when you want to display a table or another special piece of furniture in your living area, while rectangular rugs can be used for a variety of places and reasons.
If no samples are readily available take several photos in different light conditions with you. This will help give you an idea of the color combinations that will work while you shop for that perfect area rug. If you have a sample of the hardwood floor take a piece with you. Because the rug will be placed on the wood floor it's a great way to see what the effect is. Be sure it has some of the warm or cool elements in the rug to accent the wood floor depending on the look you are going for. The style of rug will play a important roll in the finished look of the room. Look at the room and the type of decor you have. Rooms with antiques will beg for a Oriental rug, but be careful because they may be to busy for the room. You will find that braided rugs work well for a traditional modern looking room.
Wool area rugs are a great addition to any household. They can be used to bring life and vibrant color to any room inside of your household. Often times in order to offset certain dominant color patterns in rooms, people will go out and purchase wool area rugs. The nice thing about getting an area rug is that you can choose to move it to any room of your house at any time; it is not a permanent installation. The benefit of getting an area rug made from wool is that it will provide you with much longer-lasting comfort than most other types of area rugs.
Construction and Materials. Numerous traditional rugs are hand-loomed or hand knotted. Weavers still create vintage and high-end Oriental rugs in this traditional way. Colonial America gave birth to a fresh type of traditional area rug, the rag rug or braided rug. Their weavers typically construct the rugs from long strips or rags of braided fabric together then they area stitched to create a level surface. Alternatively, a weaver may weave rag rugs on a loom using strips of rags and fibers or strong thread. Contingent on the kind of rug, traditional area rugs may be constructed from wool or camel's hair, 100 percent cotton fabric, or other natural fibers. Lately, rugs traditional in appearance have also been made from polyester and other blends of man-made fibers.
