Most of the time when you move into a new home or decide to
remodel, you forget one of the most important decorating rules.
Decorate from the ground up. Since what sits on the floor is
most important, then maybe you should consider inexpensive area
What is so great about inexpensive area rugs?
Inexpensive area rugs allow you to have the styles, designs,
patterns, and colors of the more expensive rugs without having
to pay the price. If you don’t care that you don’t own the ‘real
thing’ and would rather have a cheaper flooring solution, the
inexpensive area rug should be your first choice.
Many inexpensive or wholesale rugs are cheaper because of the
fibers they are made of. Many cheaper rugs are not made of New
Zealand’s finest 100% wool but rather made with synthetic fibers
such as olefin, polypropyline, and nylon. What’s really great is
that these fibers can last just as long and don’t cost as much.
There are a few items to consider when buying an area rug for
your floors. What are you going to use the rug for? Is it going
in the kitchen, living room, outside, dining room, bedroom, or
maybe even the playroom? This is something you need to decide.
Obviously, if you are going to buy a rug that will endure much
use, such as in a playroom, you don’t need the world’s finest.
Secondly, how big does the rug need to be? Most rugs don’t need
to cover the entire floor to add to the look of the room. Most
of the time a simple 4′ x 6′ rug will do great. If you do want
to cover the entire floor, be sure to leave at least one to two
feet between the rug and the wall. This look much better.
Thirdly, what colors or patterns do you want in the rug? You
might want to get a rug that draws attention to itself. These
rugs need to have sophisticated patterns and bright colors. On
the other hand you might want a rug to draw attention towards
another piece of furniture or object in the room. These rugs
need to be simpler and match the room’s overall look. Don’t be
afraid though to mix and match rug styles with the rest of the
room. For example, modern rugs with their bright colors and
outrageous designs can go well with a traditional look. All in
all make sure that the colors and patterns match and you will be
Last of all, don’t forget the rug pad. Rug pads will add a bit
of cushion while holding the rug in place so it won’t slip
beneath you. The best part about the rug pad is that it makes
the rug easier to vacuum.
Remember, inexpensive area rugs are a great solution to give
your rooms a new look. Look for them the next time you are
shopping or surfing the net and will be surprised at the amazing
rugs you can buy for such cheap prices.
