Now that youve decided what look you want you must decide on the fabric that suits the use of the room. Wool rugs are hugely attractive but can be difficult to clean if used in extremely high traffic areas. They are long-wearing lush and command respect and admiration so should be chosen for those areas where people sit and relax and in dining areas that are of a more formal nature. Spills on wool rugs are not a problem if they are blotted up quickly; wool rugs repel dirt and liquids not allowing them to absorb quickly into the fibers. The scales of the fibers make wool fibers resilient soft to the touch and tough. Wool rugs also dye easier and richer making them a striking focal point. Another natural fiber is cotton that makes a longwearing rug much like wool but of a lighter weight.

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.
