Handmade Rugs have a special quality that makes their appeal unlike any other home accent, they add quality, warmth and a comfortable familiarity to the design interior of any room decor. Handmade Rugs are now made in a variety of fibers, both natural and polyesters, and they are identified as hand-woven rugs, hand-tufted rugs, hand-knotted rugs or hand-loomed rugs. The fiber of each area rug also makes a difference in the look and design: wool rugs are rougher to touch but also adapt to highly compact designs or looser knotting techniques, and it's also the most durable fiber providing decades (and centuries) of use; cotton rugs are softer but more limited in the depth of detail and also use, with the fiber needing more casual care; silk rugs are long-lasting but delicate and can be used to create the finest details and colors while also providing a lustrous sheen; the new polypropylene rugs with polyester fibers can appear as any of the natural fibers but with the advantage of being easily manufactured, very durable and usually (but not necessarily) less expensive; and the manmade rayon fibers that can appear as silk also need more gentle care than the typical polyester threads.
In addition to so many options now in handmade rugs, there are likewise many more, both Classic and Contemporary, impressive patterns that are created especially for a quality design interior. The traditional rugs, Persian rugs and Oriental rugs, in their beloved patterns are still created and remain in popular demand, but now new designs are available that also make new standards in area rug design. Contemporary Rugs in bold flower or graphic patterns, Transitional Rugs with subtle effects, Modern Area Rugs based on cubist or optical theories, are all within the realm of possibilty to be available to you, and for you to feature in your home. Beyond all of this, handmade rugs based on specific themes can also be an option for your home; themes are often applied to nautical rugs, country rugs and kids area rugs. There's alot to consider for decorating today's flooring and opening the windows of possibility that shine a beautiful light on the patterns and textures available for floor design while also increasing your pleasure in the process and satisfaction with the end result: a decorated room that is as comfortable under your feet, as it is at eye level.
