Deciding which decorative pieces to incorporate into your space is rarely easy. Each piece can alter the look of the room dramatically. When you are looking for a piece that makes a bold yet casual statement in your space and that will hold up well to intense use over the course of time, investing in cowhide rugs makes excellent sense. You can begin exploring the many styles available today online to find the right look for your home.
Wool Fiber that has been shorn from New Zealand sheep is the best fiber for an area rug. Why a New Zealand sheep? Because they have been bred to produce "carpet quality" wool fiber. An area rug of New Zealand wool fiber will be soft on the feet and extremely durable. Most stains are not a problem; simply blot gently with clear warm water for best results. An area rugs density will play an important role in its life and performance. A flimsy cotton or olefin (polypropylene) rug or a runner without a secondary backing is nothing but trouble. A rug without sufficient density will wrinkle, warp, buckle and bunch. Not to mention the battle for possession that takes place when you try to vacuum it. The vacuum almost always wins this battle as you try using your feet to keep it under submission and out of the suction tube. I dont know anyone who enjoys constantly adjusting and straightening their rugs. If you buy a rug with sufficient pile density (or weight) it will remain where you place it and behave when you vacuum. I prefer rugs of at least 12mm. Especially if they are to be placed over wall-to-wall carpet. Buy a dense rug and let gravity keep it in position and under control.
The most common mistake people make when buying a new floor covering is selecting one that is too small for the space. While it may seem counterintuitive, select a carpet that is slightly larger than the furniture or space it will be used in. This way, the room will feel larger and the furniture will look more tied in, even if the pieces do not match entirely. Round tables, whether they are side tables or large dining tables, look best with round floor coverings underneath them. Choose an option with the same shape as the table to unify the look of the room. Also, ensure that the carpet is proportionate to the table itself. Keep in mind that rectangular carpets tend to work best in living rooms and sitting areas where furniture is clustered together.
Small Round Rug or Square? It can be difficult deciding on a safe, square rug or a large or small round rug when it comes to the space in question. Take into consideration the area of the floor and what size would be best. A great trick is to use masking tape to get an idea. There are also many suppliers of area rugs online that will allow you to easily visualize the rug in your space by pulling it up on the computer whilst in the room. This is not something that is easily accomplished in a brick and mortar store.
