AREA RUGS

arearugs

The fastest way to change a mood or character of a room is to add an area rug.

Using the appropriate pad, area rugs can go on top of any kind of flooring, usually with dramatic results.

Area rugs can be very inexpensive or phenomenally expensive depending on the material used, how they were made and the degree of artistry or intricacy in their design.

Handmade wool, 100% silk or wool and silk Oriental or Persian rugs have been known to last hundreds of years and just seem to increase in value.

A relatively new development are "machine made" rugs, made with sophisticated design patterns on computerized looms that can mimic more intricate and labor intensive handmade rugs at greatly reduced costs. Because they are made by machines it opens up these types of rugs to the mass market. Area rugs are generally made out of wool, silk, (or a blend of wool/silk), olefin (polypropylene), or nylon, with some applications, particularly bath mats, made of cotton.

Wool and silk rugs dominate the high end of the market. Heat set olefin looks much like wool, offers excellent cleanability, especially with stain resistant treatments, and at a moderate price in comparison to wool.
