With time, area rug and carpet construction has evolved and become an automated manufacturing process. Depending on the materials involved and the style of weave, there are many different types of area rugs available for purchase. Your personal preferences, your home's style, and where you intend to use your area rugs will help you determine the types of area rugs and carpets that are right for your home.
Types of Area Rugs
Tufted Area Rugs
Because of their construction, tufted types of rugs are more resistant to mildew and other bacteria that can make people sick. This makes them ideal for dining rooms, where spills may occur, and living rooms, where people frequently gather. Tufted area rugs do tend to shed more than other types of rugs, so be prepared to pull out your vacuum!
These types of rugs are known for their durability, making them perfect for high traffic areas like hallways, living rooms, and entryways. However, their unique construction process makes needle-felted area rugs rather expensive, so keep your budget in mind when looking at these types of rugs.
Knotted Area Rugs
Knotted area rugs are comfortable and attractive. Try using them in a bedroom or office to add a little color to these spaces.
Woven Area Rugs
Since woven area rugs are one of the most attractive types of rugs, choose them for rooms where they will be seen frequently so that you and your guests can enjoy them.
