Its official - shag rugs are back! These rugs were a big part of the 1970s design culture along with patterned wallpaper and lava lamps. And although Im not advocating for a complete retro rewind this is one 70s style whose return Im happy to celebrate. Heres why!

No matter what style of wool rug you have you should always take steps in order to prevent it from getting worn out. Do not put a special wool rug in an area of your house that is frequently walked through or that gets trampled. Be sure to put it in a location where everyone is able to see it yet in an area that will prevent it from getting worn out. If you are really serious about preventing your rug from getting damaged you could even consider buying rug-pads in order to ensure that you keep the bottom of your rug from getting torn.

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.

Vacuuming the Back of the Rug - Many times people forget to vacuum the backs of the rugs in their homes. While you dont need to vacuum the back of each area rug every time you should try to do so on occasion. After all grit dirt dust and debris can slide beneath an area rug; over time those things can damage the structural integrity of a rug from below.

Choosing a Rug for Living Rooms. Among the rooms within your house the living room is perhaps the most common area where you can throw in an area rug. Your choice rug does not only cover the floor it also makes the space seem brighter and wider. The colors and patterns of the rug are capable of providing different effects within your house. You can make your living room look more formal or more cheerful depending on the design or tones of the area rugs. If you want to make this part of your house seem bigger refrain from buying rugs that have huge patterns. On the other hand do not put in a rug with small patterns to your huge living room. This will only make the area seem cluttered. If the lighting of this area is dark make it bright and sunny with colorful rug colors like yellow and orange.

About size a great way to determine what size rug is best for your room spread a bed sheet or butcher paper in the area and try different sizes. In dining areas youll want a rug at least 4 feet longer and wider than your table which would allow diners to push their chairs away from the table without slipping off the rug. In areas where the rugs will serve as a place for feet to rest while sitting in conversation areas choose rugs that are at least as large as the open area in front of sofas and chairs. You can leave up to a foot right in front of the furniture because most people dont place their feet right up against the front of the couch or chair. You can let the size of the rug determine the size and intimacy of that area or you can place your conversation area/s as you wish and then order a rug to fit that space. A large room can have a cozy feeling by dividing it visually into sections you choose with an area rug or two. Keep these rugs from extending into high traffic areas to avoid tripping.

All these decisions make a difference as to what size will work best for you in a particular area. This decision also will help you know which pad is best for this area as well as what size rug or rugs you want to use.

Rug pads can keep rugs from moving avoid turning up at the corners help them wear longer and make them feel cushy under your feet. Shop carefully for the right pad for the rug youve chosen. The pad is no place to skimp on quality since the pad will influence so much about your new rug. Be sure the pad provides a firm non-slip backing and a cushion that reflects your style. Decide if your rug will be on carpeting or bare floors and choose the pad that is correct for each by reading the descriptions carefully. Rug pads prolong the life of your rugs since rugs wear from the bottom up; the pads cushion the rug from the hard floor below.
