Covering 100% Wool Area Rugs
Wool area rugs are available in a broad variety of stylish colors, patterns, shapes, sizes, and design themes. There are wool rugs suitable for every type of home decorating style, from traditional to contemporary. Some common rug types include hand-knotted rugs, hand-tufted rugs, hand-woven rugs, and shag rugs.What are the advantages of 100% wool rugs?
There are a number of benefits that distinguish wool from other types of fibers:
- Shape - Wool fibers tend to keep their shape well and last a long time. The resilience and durability of this fiber makes it suitable for use in high-traffic corridors of the home.
- Non-toxic - Wool is a naturally non-toxic fiber that offers you a safe and healthy surface for children and pets to play on. 100% wool rugs do not typically contain any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can harm people with weakened or undeveloped immune systems.
- Flame resistant - Wool is naturally flame resistant without needing any application of chemical flame retardants. If you accidentally catch it on fire, the flame tends to go out on its own. If there are smokers in your household, or if youre decorating a home in an area thats prone to wildfires or has significant amounts of local hydraulic fracturing activity, this benefit makes a wool rug an attractive choice of home accents.
- Biodegradable - Wool is a biodegradable, renewable resource.
Here are some style guidelines to help select the right rug size:
In the dining room, its beneficial to choose an area rug sized large enough for your table and all your chairs to fit on top of it -- even when all the dinner guests push their chairs away from the table to stand up. One possible guideline is to measure the dining room table and then add four feet onto the length and four feet onto the width. If no area rugs are available in those exact dimensions, select the next largest size rather than the next smallest size.What shape area rug should be used in various rooms?
You can select any rug shapes that appeal to you whether you are placing them on a wood floor or carpet. In a dining area, some interior decorators prefer to keep shapes consistent between the area rug and the dining room table. For example, they would choose a round area rug to use beneath a round dining room table or a square area rug to use beneath a square dining room table.
Interesting rug shapes can easily be incorporated into childrens bedrooms. You can allow the child to select a shape they like to brighten up their space.
