Here’s a common scenario that most of us have experienced before. It’s a big night; you’re going out to a happening place with someone special. You’ve been waiting for this night since forever, and that’s why you wanted everything to be perfect, with your perfect dress and your perfect shoes. However, as you look at your reflection on the mirror, expecting to see the fairest of them all, you notice something missing. You need an accent piece of jewelry to complete your look.
This can happen when buying houses, as well. Sometimes, there’s something missing that would complete an otherwise perfect home. Usually, the right floor rugs are just what our homes need. Floor rugs have important functions in homes and shelters since the earliest civilizations. Europeans were marveling at Persian rugs’ magnificence since the 17th century, when the rugs were brought to Western Europe.
A Russian archeologist discovered the oldest surviving floor rug known to man. They were excavating a Siberian burial site in 1949 when they found it. “Pazyryk”, as it was known, was made around the 5th century BC. Many experts admired its extraordinary work. Don’t be an impulsive buyer, determine first what type of floor rugs you need. You can use these rugs in one or more ways. Floor rugs with intricate designs and bold colors can be the center of attention of the whole room.
In parts of the house where people walk the most, they can put floor rugs, also known as rug runners, to protect the floor surface from constant wear and tear. If you have floor rugs with intricate details and designs, don’t use it in a room that is already busy with other decorations. It’s only natural for floor rugs to accumulate dirt and stains because they’re used everyday.
When vacuuming, go over the whole area of the rug. Look for fading areas of rugs that people usually walk on, then rotate the rugs around to minimize these fading. Be cautious of liquids like coffee, wine, colas, and milk that may be spilled on the rug, as these will stain the rug. People have devised different methods of spot cleaning rugs. Take your floor rugs to professional cleaners, but be sure that it will be practical for the type of rug you wanted cleaned. Most of today’s homes will have an area that looks plain, and floor rugs are usually the solution for these predicament.
Floor rugs can be one of the most important home decorations for your house, much like how royal kings and queens used them in their lavish palaces; and it can also be used for practical reasons, the way nomads did. There are many floor rugs in the market with different colors, design, pattern, and sizes, and it’s your responsibility to know which ones will look the best in your rooms.
