Area Rugs: Care, Sytle and Types 

Caring For Your New Area Rug:
Regular vacuuming will help rugs retain their beauty and will extend the life of the rug.
An area rug pad will also help in making sure your rug retains its original beauty.

Clean spills immediately with the following method: blot with a clean cloth, spot clean with a solution of clear dish washing detergent (non-bleach) and water, rinse with water, and blot dry.

Davan recommends that you have your area rug professionally cleaned when needed.

 

Area Rug Characteristics:
There are a variety of area rugs and each has their own characteristics. Hand-knotted, flat weave, hand-tufted hand-hooked and machine-made are the primary categories.

  • Hand-Knotted : This rug is constructed with fine threads of colored yarn that are hand-knotted through a warp/weft backing and then sheared to create a pile. Two varieties of actual knot styles are Persian and Turkish.
  • Flat Weave : This rug is constructed without a pile. Colored weft yarns are woven through warps to create the pattern. Some varieties of flat weave are kilims, dhurries and soumaks. Needlepoint is another type of flat weave that is made by weaving the colored yarns through a pre-made scrim.
  • Hand-tufted and Hand-hooked : These rugs are produced with a tufting gun that works like an oversized sewing needle. It pushes and pulls threads of yarn through a scrim – a pre-woven grid foundation. With a hooked rug, the loops of yarn are left intact to form a knobby loop pile. In a tufted rug, the tops of the loops are sheared to expose the thread ends for a softer and plusher cut pile.
  • Machine-made : In this process, the rugs are woven on mechanical looms. There are many types of mechanical looms, each with specific capabilities as to the type of design and textures it can create.

Selecting an Area Rug

  • Rooms : If you want to cover a room, choose a rug that is two feet shorter than the smallest wall in the room. If your study is 10’ x 12’ then look for a rug no more than 8’ wide. For a larger room, such as a living room, look for a rug that covers and frames the area where the furniture is placed. The rug should be big enough so that at least the front third of the furniture sits on the rug.

  • Entry Hall : For a hallway, swing the front door open and then measure the floor from that point so that the first three feet remain clear. Hall rugs should have at least 6” of floor showing on all sides.

  • Dining Room : A rug in a dining room should extend at least 18” beyond the edge of the table so that it accommodates the dining chairs.

  • Bedroom : Try runners at each side and even the foot of the bed. Or place a rug one-third of the way under the foot of the bed so the rest of the rug creates a nice mat at the foot of the bed.
