Choosing a carpet
When I come home after a hard day I want to kick off my shoes and dig my toes into a soft carpet. So, for me, carpeting is very important. For me, carpet isn’t just a floor covering, I associate it with luxury and comfort.
Perhaps the most difficult decision of all is choosing the carpet's color. Also when you choose a carpet, you should keep in mind the size of the room. It is very important criterion.
-For small rooms it is recommended large carpets with uniform texture and pale. Pale and neutral tones reflect light and visual enlarge the space.
-In large rooms is better to use dark colored carpet and an unusual texture.
If you have modern furniture with bright colors, you should choose a sober kind of rug, because it will confer your room elegant style.
Texture of a rug represents aspect of the surface: smooth or uneven, delicate or rough. There exists many types of textures that are especially for a particular interior. For example plush and shag carpets are recommended for familiar interiors (warm rooms). Berber carpet is an ideal choice for a classic interior. Uneven carpets are suitable for circulated rooms styled intimate, warm.
Another important element of a carpet is the fiber from which it is made. It may be natural (wool) or artificial (nylon, polyester, polypropylene).
Wool provides room nature and elegance. Wool is resistant, but is more expensive and harder to maintain. Because of this it is recommended to place wool carpet in rooms that are not visited very often.… Nylon is an artificial fiber that is the most popular and durable. It is also resistant to use.
Homeowners with young children or dogs and cats may want to avoid hard-to-clean shag or high-end rugs. Stain-resistant carpets can eliminate the frustration associated with spills and may cut your cleaning time.
There is no doubt that natural carpets are healthy. If your budget allows, check out carpet made from natural products.
Natural fiber rugs:
Sisal- fiber extracted from the leaves of the agave plant. Its natural color is creamy white, but it may be easily colored.
Coconut- its rustic and natural aspect bring elegance in any interior,
Jute- with a soft-touch surface, jute is distinguished by a special gloss. Moreover, its aesthetic effect is excellent.
Seagrass- with a pleasant design, seagrass is available in 3 types: standard, stitching and zigzag.
Wool- this fiber is ideal for carpet confection.
I hope you will make the best choice for your home!
As always, with affection,
P.S. Aaron, thank you very much for helping (hug) :)
