I always have trouble choosing the right size. How large should area rugs be? Choosing a floor covering that is too small is a common problem. The room will look best if the front legs of your furniture are resting on the carpet. For bedrooms, the piece should extend at least two feet out on each side of the bed.
Can I use area rugs over wall-to-wall carpeting? Absolutely! These delightful decorating pieces are not strictly for those with hardwood floors. Add personality and appeal to your carpeted room with a number of Rugport's dazzling Rug selections.
What are the best types of rugs for pet owners? Having pets usually means lots of hair on your floor and the occasional accident. Choosing the best floor coverings for homes with pets can be a challenge. Pet owners with cats should avoid sisal and natural fibers because cats may scratch them. Stay away from overly fluffy rugs (like shaggy rugs) choose a flatter option that is easier to vacuum.
Regular vacuuming (with a hose attachment for delicate carpets) and spot cleaning will keep your rug in great shape. Rugs not only dress up your floors, but they also dress up the entire room. Hand-knotted oriental rugs can change the whole look of a room by adding fun, color, and a unique vibe. They also inspire decor selections for the rest of the room. A vivid color in a rug could lead to delightful accent pillows and throw blankets in coordinating colors. The floor is much more than a place to rest one's feet; it's a blank canvas just waiting for beautiful decor.
