Pattern and color
Got a small space?
HERE IS HOW THE USE OF PATTERN AND COLOR IN YOUR AREA RUG CAN ENLARGE YOUR ROOM'S APPEARANCE.
Small patterned area rugs in light shades and natural hues make a small space appear warm, cozy, yet will expand the overall appearance of your space. Stay away from dark patterns and colors, think natural and light. Simple, minimal geometrics and alternating colored stripes will make your space look as if it never ends.
Pattern and Color
Too large of a space?
SIZE IT DOWN.
Big, bold floral or abstract patterns in deep warm colors will make a room feel cozy. Patterns scaled on smaller size area rugs should be filled with contrasting colors in order to make a living space look at its limited size. Use heavily textured patterns for a tighter cozier appearance.
Area Rug Care and Maintenance
VACUUMING, SPOT CLEANING + TREATMENTS
In addition to proper padding it is important to rotate your area rug periodically. Over time, set traffic paths in your home and/or sunlight patterns can cause fading or uneven wear to an area rug that is not occasionally rotated.
We recommend vacuuming area rugs in your home that receive the most traffic once a day to keep soil from accumulating. Ideally, all floor coverings should be vacuumed a minimum of once a week. We suggest using a good quality vacuum that features a beater brush that can be adjusted to pile height. Improper maintenance or overly aggressive vacuum methods may cause the pile of a hand-knotted area rug to sprout.
(Special care should be taken as vacuuming with a beater bar can catch or pull the knots and fringe, causing severe damage to your hand-knotted area rug)
Daily vacuuming is the most important cleaning activity, however immediate treatment must be taken for spills, spots or stains. Remember to act quickly!
Step 1 — Blot liquids with a dry, white absorbent cloth or a white paper towel with no printing. Do not scrub the stain! Scrubbing can cause pile distortion in the affected area. Continue to use a dry cloth or paper towels until the area is completely dry.
Step 2 — For semi-solid spills, gently scrape up with a rounded spoon. Solids should be broken up and vacuumed until completely removed.
