Nowadays, the most sought-after area rugs are those that have modern designs. Whether the homeowner has a limited or huge budget for the rugs, he or she would want to shop for rugs that have striking designs and patterns or colorful colors. Modern designs of rugs include flowers, bold and cheerful colors, stripes, or anything that will definitely make an area of the home stand out.
Spills on wool rugs are not a problem if they are blotted up quickly; wool rugs repel dirt and liquids not allowing them to absorb quickly into the fibers. The scales of the fibers make wool fibers resilient, soft to the touch, and tough. Wool rugs also dye easier and richer making them a striking focal point. Another natural fiber is cotton that makes a longwearing rug much like wool but of a lighter weight.
Of course, many rugs will be chosen to stop dirt from entering the main parts of the house. The foyer, back door, garage entry, and side porch doors are some of the examples of these entry points. Rugs for these areas should be fairly flat, absorbent, and easy to clean. Rug pads that are a non-skid type are a necessity for these areas for obvious reasons.
Laying and protecting your area rug. All area rugs that are placed on hardwood floors or laminate floors should be laid over top of a good non-slip underlayment, which can prevent accidents. Having that extra underlayment under the carpet will also help in the protection of the underside of the area rug from the day to day wear and tare and will help to make it more soft and resilient. If you have a light area rug you can secure it by means of a special mesh backing or with the use of bonding strips.
