Create an Inviting Entryway - When your front door opens straight into the room without a designated foyer, you can build the illusion of one with an area rug. A chevron wool rug is a good example of creating a welcoming entrance and makes a nice contrast to the hardwood. Use a bold color area rug to build on the look by adding a small piece of furniture and some art.
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.
Although cotton or jute backing is preferred, many rugs are manufactured with a secondary backing. I prefer rugs that are woven without the secondary backing. Because you can tell if it is a good quality rug when you can detect the pattern of the rug while looking at it from the back. Whether a rug is machine-made or hand-knotted it has to be woven into something. Cotton or jute is preferred, but polypropylene mesh is fine when used in the backing of a rug (but never the face fiber). However; some rugs need that secondary backing to add density and weight. Also consider how the are rug is bonded.
Area rugs are often intended to define and delineate space. If your rug is too big for the area you are decorating you will be tempted to tuck the edges of the rug under your heavier pieces of furniture. When heavy furnishings are placed on an area rug they can often cause bunching and wrinkling where the furniture legs are indenting their selves into your rug. This can cause the most beautiful and expensive rugs to look cheesy and warped. Indents, wrinkles and warping of rugs from heavy furnishings can also become more permanent.
