What makes a quality rug and what's the right one for your room here, we go very little, has changed and the way rugs are made and it all begins with the rugs. Fiber wool has been the choice of rug makers for centuries. It's soft and comfortable, but thick and extremely durable and stands up to heavy foot traffic rugs made with natural fibers like jute, sisal or sea grass, are durable and lasting like wool, but are hypoallergenic and more easily maintained. Polypropylene rugs are also a great choice, stain and water resistant and lots of color and pattern options make polypropylene a great outdoor rug choice.
Outdoor rugs also make great indoor rugs too now that you've selected your fiber it's time to weave and the weave is really important. As it sets the rug, both in style and durability, flat weave is probably the most common made on a loom and constructed without knots or pile. This is the most durable rug gable. Of course, if you're looking for authentic, then a hand-knotted rug is probably for you, and it is literally that fibers that are hand tied to form a knot.
The more knots per square inch, the more durable and therefore the more valuable the rug is tufted and hooked.
Can be made by hand or by machine tufted, is cut and can add dimensional effects, while hooked is left looped. Really it's just a matter of personal preference on style, durability and price. So, let's move on to style and sizing. Furniture configuration is key and a small rug can leave the room feeling empty or unfinished for furniture.
That's placed against a wall, it's good to have the front legs on the rug, however, for furniture away from the wall, with space, behind it's best to have all four legs on the rug, with two feet of flooring, exposed between the edge of the rug and the Wall dining room rugs are tricky, we're focusing less on the distance to the wall and more on the dining set.
Rugs are also great for bringing the room or rooms together in open-concept spaces. Rugs make great room dividers use one in your living room and a different one in your dining room to create definition. Multiple rugs are also a great choice. If you can't afford a large rug, layering, multiple small rugs in a room can create dimension and interest.
