This Summer!

    • baja blue

If you are planning on redecorating your space, then rugs are one of the most inexpensive means of enhancing or transforming your room. Rugs are available for many uses and constructed from many different materials. Of these, area rugs and cotton are one of the best combinations. There are several advantages to buying cotton rugs you may not know about.

Here are some of the benefits you should keep in mind while shopping for cotton rugs:

1. Go natural! - Rather than opting for a synthetic or a wool material, go for rugs made out of cotton. Many people suffer allergic reactions from wool or synthetic materials. Cotton, a sustainable, natural fiber, is the perfect replacement to help alleviate these allergies.

2. Great feel and warmth - Cotton rugs are extremely comfortable and offer a great feel and warmth. They are suitable for any area where you may sit on the floor and they are soft on bare feet, and even babies’ tender knees.

3. Comes in endless designs and styles - Cotton rugs can be seen in amazing colors, designs and styles that help you decorate the largest to even the smallest space of your home.

4. Cotton rugs can last a lifetime - A high quality cotton rug not only looks great, but can also last a lifetime. These rugs can make your life easier and more comfortable. With their endless utility, cotton rugs can be used in your living room, dining room, play area, bedrooms and bathrooms. There’s a place for a cotton rug in almost any home!

5. Easy care and cleaning - Other than their looks and health benefits, cotton rugs are easy to care for and clean. Simple spot-cleaning and professional cleaning every few years can help your cotton rug look beautiful for many years to come.

Choosing the right entryway rug will give you a nice warm feeling every time you enter your home. A good entryway rug also keeps your entrance looking neat and clean. Most importantly, it is one of the first impressions of your home when you welcome your guests. A rug that works well here adds to your pride in your home. Let’s have a look at some points on selecting the right entryway rug for your home:

1) As an entryway is a high traffic area, pick a material which is durable and a sturdy rug construction type.

2) An entryway rug is something that will trap dirt with people coming in and going out of the house, so pick a rug that is easy to clean and washable.

3) Go for a mix of medium and dark colors to better hide stains and dirt. It’s also easier to clean a dark colored rug as the stains are already masked.

4) ) Measure the entryway’s length and width and choose something that will cover a large part of the entryway. A larger rug will stop more dirt from entering your house.

5) Make sure the rug you choose is thin enough to go under the weather stripping of the door, or it will need to be placed behind the door opening area.

6) The rug you select should be a classy rug, giving guests an idea of your house’s personality and your own taste and style as soon as they step in.


Remember that whenever someone comes to your home, grab their attention with a great rug. So select a rug which grabs your own attention.

The Best Ways to Decorate with Rugs!

An ideal rug not only pulls the room together, it also makes the space complete, adding quality and style from the floor up. Brighten your room from one wall to another with luxurious textures and handcrafted detailing found on rugs. A good rug adds excitement to a room as well as defining it, adding warmth and layering the decor of any room. So the question here is what’s the best way to use a rug to add that charm to your home? Let’s have a quick look at a few tips.

  • Kilimanjaro Jute Braided Rugsbaja blue cotton braided rugUse a rug to separate or define areas, such as dining, foyers or seating areas. This is especially useful in places like studio apartments or big rooms which require definition.
  • In case you wish to use more than a single rug in your room, then ensure they are of different sizes. Two rugs of the same size tend to visually cut a room in half.
  • If you do choose two rugs, then pick rugs which complement one another in style. If they don’t, you can end up with an unpleasant or a jarring effect. Too many conflicting patterns will affect the sense of harmony of the room.
  • Slate Outdoor Braided Rugs
    Your favorite rug can be used as the basis of the room’s color scheme. If you add a rug after you’ve put the furniture in place, the rug can be used for accenting or tying in the existing colors.
  • A rug can be used either to brighten a room or visually calm it. If the upholstery or the wallpaper in your room has a fancy pattern, then pick a subtle rug. For subdued walls and upholstery, go for a busier rug pattern to add a little spice to the room.

  • Make the rug the centerpiece of your living space since rugs tend to create a huge impact. In order to do that, a contrast can be created by painting the walls in a color which mirrors one of the rug’s accent colors.
  • Try something different! Use the rug as a wall hanging instead and create a focal point.
  • The days are gone when rugs only came in rectangular or oval shapes. Today you can buy round, square, and other shapes, too! Let the grouping of your furniture decide your rug's shape.Change out pillows and rugs to quickly update a room or space for changing seasons or to introduce novel color trends.
  • Use a rug pad to keep your rug from creeping or slipping. Make sure the rug pad is right for the floor type and the right size to keep it from sliding.
