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.
The most common mistake people make when buying a new floor covering is selecting one that is too small for the space. While it may seem counterintuitive, select a carpet that is slightly larger than the furniture or space it will be used in. This way, the room will feel larger and the furniture will look more tied in, even if the pieces do not match entirely. Round tables, whether they are side tables or large dining tables, look best with round floor coverings underneath them. Choose an option with the same shape as the table to unify the look of the room. Also, ensure that the carpet is proportionate to the table itself. Keep in mind that rectangular carpets tend to work best in living rooms and sitting areas where furniture is clustered together.
