Now you have decided to change your flooring from wall to wall carpet to hard flooring you might find that you need an area rug to include colour, warmth and protection to your new floors. Area rugs tend to be more than just a flooring, they are works of art and the proper rug can transform your room from nice to fabulous.

With so many choices of area rugs how would you decide which one is wonderful for you? This short article will provide you with the knowledge to choose the right one for every room in your house.

You first need to decide on the size of area rug you need. If you need it to cover the majority of the room good rule of thumb is 2 feet from all walls, this way the rug isn’t under a lot of furniture and you will still see some of your beautiful flooring. Most rugs come in the general sizes of 2×4, 3×5, 4×6, 5×7, 5×8, 6×8, 6×9, 7×10, 8×11, 9×12, 10×13, 12×14 and runners are often 30 inches wide and in varying lengths. Always measure the space prior to going rug shopping to make certain it will fit in the room.

Another important factor whenever choosing a rug may be the thickness. If the rug is too thick you may not have the ability to open the door to an area or closet. Gauge the space between your floor and bottom of the entranceway before going shopping. If you work with pad under your rugs factor in the thickness of the pad and rug together when it’s near a door.

Next step would be to decide on the sort of rug that may work best for each room in your house. Wool is always the best option, but additionally, there are various kinds of wool rugs to pick from. When you have children and pets you will need one that can stand up to lots of wear and spills. Synthetics such as olefin, polypropylene, nylon rug work best and clean up great.

Any area rug where one can see the same pattern front and back is always best. Not all are made to withstand daily use, spills, and pet accidents. Take into consideration what room it’ll be in. A rug that works in the bed room may not be able to handle the daily routine of a living room.

Here are several types of rugs and where they will work best in your house. That is my professional opinion and isn’t written in stone, but from a cleaners point of view from what I see everyday.

Synthetics made with olefin, polypropylene fibers. These rugs stand up to heavy use, clean easily and may be used in virtually any room of your property.

Hand Knotted Wool rugs are best for bedrooms, in front of wood burning fireplaces, family/living rooms, and entrances. When used in an entrance make sure the dyes are stable, that you vacuum at least one time a week front and back and obtain it professionally cleaned a minimum of twice a year given that they get all of the dirt and debris from outside. Wool rugs can be used in a kitchen, however they can stain easily with food and drink spills, having a multi coloured pattern does hide lots of spills though.

Carpets remnants turned into rugs may be used in any room, but you must have pad to keep them from scratching your floor and keep it in place. Synthetic carpet leftovers work ideal for play rooms and basement. Ultimate Mats can easily edge your left carpet into scatter mats for entrances and mud rooms.

Flat weave (dhurries and kilim’s), braided,and rag rugs can work in a bedroom, a kitchen (can stain easily) sunrooms, and home offices. Flat woven rugs tend to like to stay grey looking if they get too dirty. These put in a nice country/rustic feel to any room.

Wool Felt Shag are great for adding texture to a room, but don’t endure a lot of use because the fibers mushroom out and pill. They’re difficult to vacuum and tough to obtain all the loose dirt and debris from underneath of the fibers. Best for a bedroom.

Viscose, Rayon, Art Silk and Cotton are excellent for low use areas like bedrooms. These can fade easily and absorb spills and stain easily. They are able to also be converted into wall hangings.

Hand tufted/designer work best in low use areas. These kind of rugs have been known to shed, could have an odour from the latex glue, stain easily, are not environmentally friendly.

Shags are very fashionable and nostalgic. They are ideal for bedrooms and pets love them too, mostly for an inside bathroom. Shags should be vacuumed and cleaned more often and trap plenty of dirt and debris in the fibers. It really is difficult to keep them looking fresh and clean.

Silks certainly are a great luxury to possess in a bedroom or office at home and are perfect as wall hangings. Silk rugs are renowned for impeccable workmanship and beauty. They are not recommended for use being an entrance rug or in a dining area.

Knowing what kind of rug works best for every room of your house saves your money and headaches. Assuming you have questions about what rug is most effective call your professional carpet cleaners and some trusted rug galleries to get their opinions.
