Aside from having a symbolic attachment to water – which by the way is the highlight of showers, rugs that are of the said shades are soothing to the eyes. This type of versatile hues should be the ones used in nooks meant for relaxing and unwinding and so explains their frequent appearance in many bathrooms.

This explains why most of the shags in the showers have rubber backings that give it a steady floor grip. Bathroom matting are mostly made of raw materials that are waterproof. In cases where cotton varieties are to be used, they are positioned away from the showers for having them soaked in moisture is the least that meticulous homeowners would desire.

There are also traditional bathrooms that still make use of wooden decks instead of tiled flooring and this is where green shags and blue mats belong best. The mere use of natural wood itself is an expression of homey and country, thus best complemented with earth tones of green and blue.

Dark Green Rugs in Room Decorating

Hall Runner Ultra 5924 Green 300 Dark Green Rugs in Room DecoratingRoom decorating is a job that may sound simple, but when you start doing the groundwork, you encounter some dilemmas that you’re not sure on how to resolve. What makes it quite difficult is the task of combining things of different colors into one room, with everything pooled into a cohesive theme.

Well, one needs not to fret, because there are dark green rugs available, and these are accessories that could help you in your room design.

The dark green color is so rich, but it would also be awkward on making all components of the room this shade. There needs to be variation present, but at the same time, there must also be a theme in the room that puts everything in a proper perspective. Dark green rugs are perfect for the floor, especially if you don’t want dirt to be easily noticeable.

Meanwhile, to create a slight contrast with the dark green shade from the floor to the walls, the latter could be painted three or four hues lighter than the rug. This is essential because you don’t want to overpower the room with just one color. This would be too boring as well. Learn to play with colors that you think look great together.

When it comes to accessories, you can bring plants inside your room. Because dark green rugs have a natural vibe, then you might as well bring little shrubs or bonsais to go along with the theme. You can also bring in flowers in vases to add to the earthy feel. A couch with some green on it would also blend together in the room. If your couch is some other color, then it’s not a problem at all. You can simply add green throw pillows and voila, it matches with everything else.

For windows, you can use light draperies or treatments. If you’re not really sure what other colors might not clash with green, you can use white curtains. This allows a lot of sunshine to penetrate in the room, and enhances the whole room’s appearance, regardless of the dark shade of your rug. Make sure you have a lamp to lighten up the room during evenings as well.

New Zealand as a Source of Quality Wool Rugs

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Elite%20Oceanic%20chocolate%20blue%20300 New Zealand as a Source of Quality Wool RugsWhen it comes to rugs, an important perspective that buyers assess is its quality and durability. Wool rugs are extremely popular when it comes to this, and weavers have been utilizing this material for centuries because of this feature. When it comes to wool production, New Zealand is the leading country, followed by Australia. It is no longer a surprise to know that a lot of wool rugs originate from New Zealand, even for manufacturers of Persian and Chinese rugs. Many countries also prefer to order from this country, because they are renowned for their creation of quality wool rugs.

This fact is being promoted by rug dealers because they are conscious about the strict regulations of New Zealand on the care of sheep, its weather, the length of the sheep’s wool, and the sheering process. However, because New Zealand produces quality wool rugs, this is also the reason the market price is more expensive when compared to other materials.

For this reason, there are some companies that produce wool rugs which incorporate a mixture of their own wool produced as well as wool from New Zealand to add softness and sturdiness to the rugs they manufacture. Rug patrons should be aware that numerous rugs are still labeled to have 100% wool, even if the wool utilized doesn’t come from New Zealand.

Another aspect to be knowledgeable about is that though the rug may be labeled as made from wool, in some occasions, it doesn’t come from sheep. Wool could also come from goats like Mohair from an Angora goat or camels. However, in New Zealand, wool should only come from sheep, and if sheep are not its source, then it shall be labeled accordingly. This is the reason why New Zealand is a trusted source of quality wool rugs.

If you are currently scouting for wool rugs in sources that you are familiar with, you can ask first about what type of wool was used and where it originated. However, for wool rugs from unknown sources such as an importer or a trader, you might as well perform some simple tests to determine the rug quality before shelling out cash.

Wool may be natural or synthetic and to ensure its authenticity, you may try burning a little piece and if the smell is reminiscent of burnt hair, then it’s natural wool. However, if the smell is reminiscent of acrid chemical, then it’s artificial. Furthermore, not all wool used is good wool. For example, some manufacturers employ wool from leftover hair, after the long hair which was stapled has already been utilized.

Always take time to scan through the description of the rug, to give you an idea on what the quality is.

Different Designs For Children’s Large Rugs

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

 Different Designs For Children’s Large RugsWhen designing the living space of a child, don’t ever forget that a rug can add personality to the space.  Of course, the space needs to be designed around the child’s personality.  And this can be made easy.  In fact, in some cases all one really needs is to invest in children’s large rugs to make the space their very own.

Rugs can be used in a variety of ways.  They are there to brighten up spaces or just as something to make a room look better than it actually is.  Decorating it around a child’s personality is really something special, though, and some of the following designs might just encourage great ideas.

  • Flowers are for girls, cars are for boys.  Yes, there will always be that distinction when it comes to dressing up the personal style of a child’s bedroom.  Flowers are indicative of a person’s feminine personality and with girls, the obvious design for their rooms.  Boys, on the other hand will always love their toys.  Try to bring a boy through a store that sells children’s large rugs and the chances are that he will point to the one with the flashy red car.
  • Rockets for the budding astronaut.  It’s amazing how some children out there grow a fascination for space, the planets and stars at a young age.  And sometimes it is just enough that they get a telescope for Christmas that they can set up right by their bedroom window.  But encouraging the activity can be a different matter altogether.  One can heighten a child’s interest in space-related objects and its beyond great to surround him or her with outer space-themed items.  A great space rocket rug would be excellent in a case like this.  And it works most especially if a rug with a large design is placed smack in the center of the bedroom.
  • The bookworm design.  Children don’t always like reading.  School can sometimes be a bit of a chore to them.  But encouraging them silently is the best way to teach them.  The simple choice of children’s large rugs that you can place strategically in their rooms can make all the difference.  Choose colors like different shades of green.  You can also stimulate them with other colors like solid reds.  Anything with designs of nature will also help a child’s interest in books.
  • Gaming carpets.  Ever played monopoly with a rug as the board?  Or maybe snakes and ladders with dice pillows to roll the numbers?  This is a fun way for parents and children to bond and enrich their relationship.  Game rugs are rare and quite difficult to find.  But when found, these are purchases worth investing in.

Finding Contemporary Modern Rugs

Friday, September 16th, 2011

These days, people like the whole modern look in their homes. What they don’t realize is that there is one common element that bridges the past and the present. That element comes in the form of contemporary modern rugs. Rugs, whether you like them or not, will always complete a space. It can be a bathroom, a living room, or a kitchen. If there’s no rug, it just feels incomplete.
With all the modern and contemporary style invading the home and even the office space, it can be quite difficult finding that perfect rug for a particular space. But the great thing about decorating a room about rugs is that anybody can become an instant interior designer! After all, it only takes a bit of measurement and a good eye for design. Here are some tips for that perfect rug:
027%20Bl%20Br%20Modern%20Rugs%20300 Finding Contemporary Modern Rugs
• First thing to keep in mind is the space of the room. Is it so big that it needs a carpet of some sort? Or is it so small that it can really just do with a rug for decor? This is one of the basic considerations. A space is more than just a space. If it’s going to be fitted with contemporary modern rugs, it sure has to be prepared for it. For example, if a space needs to look bigger, one can choose a smaller rug. One can also do the opposite and get a big rug to make a space seem smaller than it actually is. This is a design trick that everyone will surely enjoy.

• Consider the shape. The shape of a rug may be something tedious. But it is really important. There are people who know about rectangular rugs. Others only know about round rugs. But there are actually so many other rug designs out there! For modern design, there are triangle rugs, oblong rugs, square rugs; some manufacturers can do some really crazy designs with rugs. This doesn’t mean that a space in the house will look crazy. But the more rugs with different shapes one has in a house will actually make the place even more modern than it is.

• Texture is the next thing to think about. Nothing will spoil a space even more than having contemporary modern rugs that have a texture that clashes with everything else in the room. Imagine a rough looking rug in a room with smooth walls and finishing.

• Color is the king. Designing a place is all about choosing the right colors and this holds true for rugs and carpets as well. Sure, it’s easy to pick out a color and a design. But will that color and design blend well with the other elements in a room? This is something that requires a lot of thought.
Contemporary modern rugs can be both easy to choose and tricky to match with the rest of the surroundings. Think about the house and what it needs in it first before shopping around for the perfect rug.

Cheap Circle Rugs for Room Decor

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

One of the most difficult decisions to make when it comes to decorating is choosing the right rug for your space. This is a critical aspect that one must consider because the failure to choose the right rug could affect the whole room. Unfortunately, not a lot of people are knowledgeable about design, though some are willing to play with modern rugs. Circle rugs are new advents of modern style, and the good thing is that they could work for any room in the house. What’s even better is a lot of cheap circle rugs are also available not only in physical stores but online as well.

Circle rugs are not difficult to work with, plus just like rugs of other shapes, they are also available in multiple designs, colors and sizes just to suit customers’ needs and preferences. If you are leaning towards accomplishing a traditional look, or a more modern vibe, then it is not impossible to achieve that with the use of circle rugs.
There are also various materials to choose from, either synthetic or natural sources. Nonetheless, in searching for the perfect circle rug, one must always determine the appropriate size. Furniture does not conceal a circle rug, and it must be positioned in a way that the whole rug is visible. In most occasions, it is placed in the middle of the room, where it is the center of attention. Starlet%20Rasberry%20Rugs%20300 Cheap Circle Rugs for Room Decor

It is also essential to know what theme you want to prevail in the room. It would be awkward to see a modern rug in a room where it has an Old English design. Furthermore, the sturdiness of the rug is also another important facet to take note of. You don’t want to buy a rug that wears off or easily tears after a few days. Though some circle rugs may be quite costly, there are cheap circle rugs that could be found, with excellent quality.

Prices may range from $10 to over a thousand dollars. However, it is not always a determinant of its quality. Examine the material that the rug is made of. If you are not able to visit a physical store and you are searching online, make sure to check the type of fabric used.

It is also a must to take care of your rugs, by not putting them in areas which they are most likely to be stepped upon frequently. If you must do this, then attest first that the rug you used is reliable when it comes to its durability. You may also not want to buy rugs that need regular cleaning. In addition, also take time to know first how the rug should be cleaned. If it requires professional steaming, then there might be a need to reconsider, especially when you’re planning to position it in a high-traffic part of the room.

Lastly, another vital aspect is to check if an item can be returned for any viable reason, be it an expensive or a cheap circle rug. In some instances, we end up purchasing the wrong rug, and we might want to trade it for a better one. In this way, we get the value for our money.
