Braided rugs oriental rugs wool rugs it doesn't matter because they all come in such a wonderful variety of colors sizes and shapes that your individual taste and color schemes can be perfectly satisfied. Your budget can also be a key factor in choosing the rug that's just right for you.

Oriental carpets were originally woven and tufted by hand to cover the ground or floors in tents and buildings with earth or stone floors. They added warmth and color to the lives of those living in these dwellings. European castles and lesser homes often had earth or stone floors covered with things like rushes or straw and when travellers brought back rugs from the East those who could afford them bought these carpets to enhance their homes as well. Settlers coming to America brought rugs with them or the knowledge to make them. Soft woven or tufted flooring covers are used around the world to add comfort color and style to homes and commercial spaces.
Area rugs. A rug can define an area within a larger space for example area rugs in a living room may make a conversation piece when surrounded by a seating arrangement of couches and chairs. Another small area rug could be placed in an area for television watching or for listening to music. Sometimes people will use an area rug beneath a dining room table to enhance the beauty of the furniture as well as to further anchor the space. A more "country" type décor will often use a braided rug to go with western style furniture while an oriental rug is usually thought of in a more formal designed room.
