If you are going to make an investment in a wool area rug you should certainly take the time to admire all of the hard-work that was put into its creation; especially if it was a handmade rug. The benefit of buying a handmade wool rug over a regular one is that it will likely be a lot more unique and have much greater durability than most rugs.
If you are placing a rug in your Family Room Great Room or any large area using one large area rug might just be what you might need. The only alternative is if in a very large room you might have several distinct seating areas. In this type of decorating you would use several smaller rugs to tie in your area. If the area rug is thick you should place a felt carpet pad under it to give a softer feel on the hardwood floor and protect it from foot impact that happens every time you step on the rug as well as hardwood floor damage from the weight of heavy furniture.
One last note a little off the immediate subject. Area rugs can be used over wall to wall installed carpet for decorative effect. The carpet acts as your pad. If it happens to move around place the hook side of Velcro on the back of the area rug and the carpet acts as the soft side. The carpet shouldnt move around and is easily removed with no damage to either carpet.
Area rugs can have many uses in your room. They can add great texture to your room when used over hardwood floors. Rug padding whichever one you chose helps keep the area rug in place not allowing them to bunch up preventing ventilation under the carpet. This air movement helps prevent mildew from forming under your area rug.
Taking care of the area rugs in your home doesnt have to involve a lot of time or expense. By keeping these common-sense tips in mind you can enjoy the fabulous benefits of stylish rugs for a very long time.
Much of the look and feel rests with the construction of the rug. Some of the modes of construction include hand-knotted hand-hooked hand-tufted machine-made and flat-weaved. There are others so you can see that this is not a simple choice. Any rug that has "hand" in its prefix will be high quality and a bit more expensive in most cases. But you get what you pay for as you know.
