Hallway Rugs. Depending on the size of the hallways in your home you will likely need a long narrow area rug - or runner - for this space. In order to achieve a balanced look and find the right size rug for your hallway keep in mind that the rug you select should be two to four inches narrower than the width of your hallway and 18 to 24 inches shorter than your hallway's total length.
Save Carpet In Children's Room. Kids can be hard on their carpet in their rooms and carpet is so expensive to replace. Using an area rug you can accomplish a few things. You can save wear and tear and staining of the carpet. You can add extra cushioning to the floor area keeping it warmer and comfortable. And you can let the kids have some fun and participate in decorating their room. You can even choose a theme and give their entire room a new look.
Rug composition. Rugs are made of many different materials. Many of them today thanks to the development of synthetic fibers are inexpensive to own. Cheap area rugs can be used in spaces where there is much more traffic and where the rug may need to be replaced occasionally. Cheap area rugs do not need to look cheap. The man made materials often have more variety than more expensive Persian rugs. Persian rugs are known for their beauty and durability but may be beyond the budget of many homeowners. Discount rugs are often made of synthetic fiber which repels water better than Persian rugs so may be more appropriate as kitchen rugs or bathroom rugs.
