Buying a new area rug is an exciting time. It also leads to many questions. Do you need a rug pad underneath it? Are there certain materials that are better than others? Can you have the same rug out all year round?
This last question is the one we want to focus on today. Buying an authentic Oriental area rug is a wonderful purchase, and it’s one that is sure to make your home even more beautiful. You’re going to want to show off this gorgeous piece of art. The good news is that you can, no matter what the season or weather!
Area Rugs Warm Up the Room
Particularly if you have hardwood or tile floors, your home can get chilly in the cooler months. An Oriental rug helps with this! Beyond the decorative interest that a pop of color, pattern, and texture bring to the room, these rugs also provide comfort and warmth. Wool rugs are very luxurious, allergy-friendly, and extremely durable. Plus, they’re so cozy!
Rugs have the ability to make any room warmer. As an example, let’s consider a rug in the bedroom placed just under your bed. Imagine waking up on a freezing winter morning, then placing your feet on the floor. Your feet don’t land on cold tile, though. You step onto a soft, plush area rug. All of a sudden, getting out of bed doesn’t seem so bad!
Colors and Patterns
That’s not to say that a rug is only suitable for the winter months. In fact, with all of the color and pattern options available, it’s easy to find one that celebrates the warm weather. Pops of bold, rich colors are the perfect way to celebrate spring and summer. Your home will be just as colorful as a garden!
Don’t Put Your Area Rug in Danger
While you certainly can leave your rug out all year round, there are certain times you may want to put it away. It’s best to avoid placing or leaving area rugs in a spot where there are likely to be spills and accidents. For example, let’s say you’re hosting Easter dinner at your home this year. Extra feet on the floor and people eating casseroles at the table mean a heightened chance for rug damage. When in doubt, roll it up and store it for later.
Even though they’re easier to clean than regular carpet, you don’t want to damage your Oriental rug if you can help it. Keep this in mind, especially if you have children and pets coming for a visit.
