Picking the Right Rug for Your Home

Picking the Right Rug for Your Home

Cold weather seems to always bring about cold feet when you’re walking through the house unless you’re walking on carpet but it’s seldom that the whole house is carpeted. Rugs act as a good insulator for your home. They help to keep your home warmer by causing reducing the heat loss in your home that often happens through the floors because of a lack of insulation. Rugs can be a good solution for the common problem of cold feet. There are many different rug types though. We want to make sure that you get the best kind for you and your family.

Machine Made Rugs

These are the type of rugs that you will be able to find almost anywhere… even in your friend’s home. They tend to be made with a synthetic material and sometimes with wool. There isn’t much to them other than the material they are made of and the machine that makes it. This makes them more or less in the price range of most. However, if your price range is higher, then it’s always good to go with a real hand knotted rug. The reason for this being the fact the machine rugs are cheap and hard to repair. Additionally, they don’t have any value for a future time. One way that you can tell it is a machine-made rug is that it has perfect dimensions.

Handmade Rugs

These are incredibly durable rugs that are beautifully made. Their value sticks with them no matter how much time goes by. They last for generations. There are many different kinds of handmade rugs with them varying in how good their quality is and the value of them. Here are a few of them:

  • Hand Tufted – Made of wool on a canvas type material, glued on back with an added canvas on the back to give a finishing look.
  • Hand hooked – These rugs are looped and then glued on the back to hold it in place.
  • Hand loomed – Is made on a loom with material weaved together. This when done right can last up to 10 years.
  • Hand Knotted – This is a canvas backing made up of a million little knots. This is the highest quality of the handmade rugs.
