A nice rug has always been a good addition to a room that simply needs a change, and now you can choose a natural rug that offers all of the decorating benefits of an area rug, with the added benefits of being made with all natural bamboo. Bamboo is a naturally sustainable material that is quickly re-grown in the wild with little natural resources being used in its cultivation.
Styles of Bamboo Rugs
The style of a bamboo rug nicely accentuates any room, since the materials are neutral in color. When you do want to add a touch of color to your space, then you can spice your bamboo rugs up with a colorful border made of cotton.
The body of bamboo rugs is similar in appearance to hardwood, making it easy to clean and care for. You can choose a variety of natural wood shades for your bamboo rugs, although the natural light wooden color goes well with any decor.
Red bamboo rugs are also a great choice when you want to add some color to a neutral room. The borders can be chosen in neutral or contrasting colors, including red, blue and green. You can also choose from tan, beige and deep brown borders for a neutral bamboo rug that can easily be interchanged between rooms.
You can choose from many different sizes of bamboo rugs, from entry way rugs to large bamboo rugs suitable for your family and living rooms. You can also choose the size of the rug you want for your larger living areas, although the most popular choices are five by eight and eight by ten. If you need a smaller of larger bamboo rug, then you can choose a four by six or smaller, or even a twelve by fifteen bamboo rug to fit a larger room.
Caring for Your Bamboo Rugs
You will need to care for your bamboo rugs in the same way as other wood flooring, although on a much smaller scale. Since bamboo is a porous wood, you will want to know whether or not your bamboo rugs have been coated with a protective clear coat. If they have, then you can wash and wax your bamboo rugs as you would any other wood product.
If you have natural bamboo rugs, then you will need to use cleaners and waxes sparingly, since they can damage the natural materials. Instead, vacuum your bamboo rugs on a regular basis, and use some mild soap with a cloth for spot cleaning. If you have a big spill on one of your bamboo rugs, then try to remove the spill as quickly as you can, and then wash the area with mild soap and water.
Ordering Bamboo Rugs
As an additional bonus, bamboo rugs are relatively inexpensive and easily ordered online. Most companies ship their bamboo rugs inexpensively, and they arrive at your door just a few days after you have placed your order. Many companies, especially those that offer high quality bamboo rugs, offer free shipping with your order.
