The Floor Queens
Home Flooring is the new fashion statement for modern decorators. With the broad choice available in floor tiling, no wonder choosing the best floor and floor coverings can be a challenge. Tiling can be done in many colors and vivid patterns, but adding a rug to the room can change its dimensions in the most innovative way, adding warmth, and most importantly, a personal touch to any living space.
Area rugs and carpets are the most engaging and inspiring decorating items that can change the overalls of a room to add a special feel to it. You can play with any theme you have on mind, and you will find a rug to match up the scheme on your walls, furniture and décor. As to the variety available, you can have anything from the Oriental blend in wool, to bamboo rugs that are more modern, the Sisal rugs or the Mountaingrass rugs. Decide on the patterns that would go best with your décor and do not make a ‘hush’ for the market. Do a quiet research on the styles, material and pattern within your budget in hand, and the best material for your home. Following are some of the popular types.
Sisal Rugs: Originally made from natural plant fiber, this carpet style copies the woven look of rugs with a feel of naturalness. It is produced on a tufting machine by continually adjusting the height of each pile yarn. The pattern shows proximity with interwoven webs, and is sturdier and durable than flax, jute, and even hemp, making it the most ideal rug material. There are many patterns the natural one being light brown or greenish hue in color. They are easily bleached or dyed and are often fitted with a canvas or leather border.
Oriental Rugs: They are in vogue too. An authentic Oriental rug is basically a handmade carpet that is either knotted with pile, or woven without pile. Persian rugs are perhaps the most popular styles like the popular Bokhara, flaunting the flowing paisley, mid-eastern patterns allowing a rich and medieval look. However, you can find more contemporary Oriental rugs too. These rugs can be found in most pleasing patterns and Western motifs, dyed to suit different platters and tastes.
For it’s aesthetic and green qualities, Bamboo happens to also be one of the fastest growing plants on Earth making it an ecologically sound choice for flooring. Bamboo rugs look fashionable and are done in many styles like the matchstick, woven fiber, and slat bamboo patterns. You can add a border that goes with your living theme to further enhance its aesthetics. The Bamboo grass can be harvested again and again every few years without weeding the old grass.
