Define the Dining Area - Just because your home lacks a traditional dining room, doesnt mean you cant have one. In this contemporary living space, a large rug creates a dining area. Without walls to create tangible zones, a rug is needed to organize the space into useful areas. When choosing an area rug for under your table and chairs, make sure the rug is large enough for the chairs to scoot back from the table without falling off the edge of the rug.
Many people think that, because they have hardwood floors, they cannot use a floor covering. While the decision to cover a hardwood floor is entirely up to the homeowner, they should never feel discouraged from using a floor covering. The right pattern and color will enhance the natural beauty of the wood and pull the room together in a way that would otherwise not be easy to achieve. When carpets are placed on hardwood, tile, or vinyl floors, they tend to slide around. Use a non-slip pad to keep the area rug in place without damaging the floors with adhesive strips or glue. This makes it possible to move the floor covering without damaging the finish of the floors underneath the carpet. Best of all, the non-slip pad provides an added layer of cushion, making the floor covering that much more comfortable to walk on.
Single backed area rugs only need a small amount of latex to keep them bonded while secondary backing rugs need more latex to secure the backing material. If the rug maker uses synthetic latex for bonding, your nose will be happy. It will only have a new rug smell for a short period of time. If your rug maker uses a lot of real latex to secure a secondary backing, it will most likely stink of burnt rubber for years to come. Especially when the weather gets hot. Most noses and eyes are sensitive to real latex in larger doses. If you have chemical sensitivities, stick to single backed area rugs that dont use heavy applications of synthetic latex.
Some homeowners are motivated to add a cowhide rug to their home because of the natural beauty of this material. Animal hides immediately incorporate a natural element into the space, and this can easily soften an otherwise intense decorative scheme with incredible contrast. While it is natural, it is also hypo-allergenic. This makes it ideal for homes with allergy-sufferers. The natural element of cowhide is most commonly thought of for rustic or country themes, but it looks great with classic, modern, French country and other styles as well.
