ColorChoosing your rug color is largely a matter of personal preference. Keep the following in mind as you shop: coordinate with the color of your walls rather than your upholstery. Most people update their furniture more often than their wall color, so consider tying together the color scheme with a few throw pillows. Lighter colors open up a room, bright colors add pizzazz and make small spaces feel larger, while rugs with deeper hues (navy, burgundy or black) create a cozier feel. Establishing a common color that ties elements together makes it much easier to shop, and it also keeps your options open when you purchase furniture, curtains and other home elements in the future.
Most room-sized rugs look better when they are "framed" by one or two feet of flooring on all sides. This approach ensures that the rug is the focal point of the room. Leaving space on all sides of large rugs also makes it easier to roll up the rug and remove it for cleaning.
Protection and Safety
Rug Liners substantially add to the life of your braided rug and are quality investments. A rug liner also helps keep the rug from slipping and protects the flooring underneath from scratches. We highly recommend a rug liner when you purchase a rug.
In the past few years, braided rug materials have transitioned from the original all wool or all cotton styles into the realm of synthetics. The right choice will depend on how much foot traffic you expect in a given room and of course, your personal preference.
The Jute Braided Rug and Twilight Jute Rug are constructed of 100% natural jute fibers. Long lasting and biodegradeable - imagine the possibilities in your own home - create an inviting space, welcome guests and offer colorful flooring all in one.
Easy Care Braided Rugs
For high traffic areas and homes with kids and pets, you can't beat the ease and durability of our polypropylene braided rugs.
Sturbridge, Heritage, and Old Orchard all have coordinating stair treads and chair pads for an ultimate complementary look and easy-care maintenance. To clean, take rugs outside and simply wash them down with a garden hose. Lay flat to dry and your braided rug will provide a pop of color in any room's framework for years to come. Keep your braided rugs clean by vacuuming and washing regularly to ensure that they will last as long as possible.
Cotton Blend Braided Rugs
Wool Braided Rugs
Wool is the superior of all natural fibers in terms of durability and its ability to hold beautiful, richly dyed colors. Deep golds, reds, and black will enrich your home. Soft underfoot and guaranteed to last for years, choose ovals or rectangles to fit any room (we have plenty of sizes and styles to choose from!). Whichever color you choose, we are sure that you will be impressed by these rugs. We recommend only professional cleaning for wool and wool blends.
