Selecting and Maintaining Rugs!

Rugs are an important aspect in overall home interior and you must make sure that you are choosing the right patterns of rugs that can match and enhance the overall home interior. There are different designs and patterns available in these rugs but you need to make sure that you have hired some professional interior designer to choose the right colors because some people will choose random colors in these rugs and in the end, they will end up losing the overall interior designs. Basically there are few things that you must always keep in mind and quality of the rugs is the basic thing. It is really tough to identify the right quality because there are very few people who will sell original quality of rugs. Handmade rugs are made in very few countries and they are exported to the whole world from those countries that make them very rare and very expensive.

Turkish handmade rugs are the most expensive ones but the good thing is that you can find them all across the globe. They are exported throughout the year and especially you can avail them anywhere in United States. You just need to be sure about the original product because there are very advanced machine made rugs also available in the market and it is really difficult for the rookie to spot the difference. There are certain things that you cannot notice at your own. If you are shopping for the handmade rugs for the first time, you must accompany someone professional who knows about different qualities of rugs. The easiest way to spot the difference between handmade and machine made rugs is to look at it from behind. When you see a very prominent design, you must understand that this is a handmade design and if you see a faint design, it comes from machine. Most of the experts will also see this difference.

Machine made rugs are also for purchasing and they have become popular enough that almost every dealer will have them. Their popularity lies in their modern designs and their economical price. These machine made rugs are made with synthetic materials and these are man made materials. These materials also carry some toxic components that make them allergic for sensitive skins. If you have kids and pets at home, you must always avoid these synthetic materials and even if you have decided to bring them, you must consult your doctor about that. In the end, you should make sure that you are cleaning these rugs properly because it is often seen that people ignore vacuuming these rugs and as a result they accumulate lots of dust. When you wash these rugs without removing this dust, they will become even dirtier. Best option is to dry clean these rugs because their fibers are very delicate and you can always mishandle them in washing besides in home, you will not have proper place to dry them and direct sunlight will make them to lose color. Keep these tips in mind and choose best rugs that are easier to clean.
