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.
A round area rug is a versatile and attractive floor covering in the widest choice of colours, designs and material compositions you can possibly imagine! An area rug is versatile. They can create wonderful focal points with splashes of colour to be the unifying element in tying the design of a room together. Rugs can create cosy conversation areas and by their very nature of being round, they create a defined space to gather for intimate conversations. In a jiffy, they quickly and easily be laid down to give your house a burst of colour and character.
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.
Although cotton or jute backing is preferred, many rugs are manufactured with a secondary backing. I prefer rugs that are woven without the secondary backing. Because you can tell if it is a good quality rug when you can detect the pattern of the rug while looking at it from the back. Whether a rug is machine-made or hand-knotted it has to be woven into something. Cotton or jute is preferred, but polypropylene mesh is fine when used in the backing of a rug (but never the face fiber). However; some rugs need that secondary backing to add density and weight. Also consider how the are rug is bonded.
