A round area rug is a versatile and attractive floor covering in the widest choice of colours, designs and material compositions you can possibly imagine! An area rug is versatile. They can create wonderful focal points with splashes of colour to be the unifying element in tying the design of a room together. Rugs can create cosy conversation areas and by their very nature of being round, they create a defined space to gather for intimate conversations. In a jiffy, they quickly and easily be laid down to give your house a burst of colour and character.
Many people think that, because they have hardwood floors, they cannot use a floor covering. While the decision to cover a hardwood floor is entirely up to the homeowner, they should never feel discouraged from using a floor covering. The right pattern and color will enhance the natural beauty of the wood and pull the room together in a way that would otherwise not be easy to achieve. When carpets are placed on hardwood, tile, or vinyl floors, they tend to slide around. Use a non-slip pad to keep the area rug in place without damaging the floors with adhesive strips or glue. This makes it possible to move the floor covering without damaging the finish of the floors underneath the carpet. Best of all, the non-slip pad provides an added layer of cushion, making the floor covering that much more comfortable to walk on.
Use in Open Spaces. The open-concept has been around for years now and is still highly favored by the majority of decorating professionals and homeowners. Large or small round rugs are perfect for these areas because they help define spaces. It could be an eating area, spot for reading or snuggling in front of a fireplace, or area for cooking to name a few. It is best to set furnishings into groups that are square but surrounding a round rug. They can also be layered on top of square or rectangle rugs. If this method is chosen, place the front legs of the furniture on the rectangle rug, and then place the small round rug on top.
Wool Fiber that has been shorn from New Zealand sheep is the best fiber for an area rug. Why a New Zealand sheep? Because they have been bred to produce "carpet quality" wool fiber. An area rug of New Zealand wool fiber will be soft on the feet and extremely durable. Most stains are not a problem; simply blot gently with clear warm water for best results. An area rugs density will play an important role in its life and performance. A flimsy cotton or olefin (polypropylene) rug or a runner without a secondary backing is nothing but trouble. A rug without sufficient density will wrinkle, warp, buckle and bunch. Not to mention the battle for possession that takes place when you try to vacuum it. The vacuum almost always wins this battle as you try using your feet to keep it under submission and out of the suction tube. I dont know anyone who enjoys constantly adjusting and straightening their rugs. If you buy a rug with sufficient pile density (or weight) it will remain where you place it and behave when you vacuum. I prefer rugs of at least 12mm. Especially if they are to be placed over wall-to-wall carpet. Buy a dense rug and let gravity keep it in position and under control.
