How to Find Custom Area Rugs to Satisfy Even the Most Specific Needs

At Natural Area Rugs, we don’t just sell area rugs. We’re passionate about interior design, and we’re committed to helping our customers find and obtain natural area rugs in all shapes and sizes, conforming to a wide a variety of specifications and desires. If you have spent any time perusing the aisles of your local carpet retailer, perhaps you have found yourself discouraged by the lack of customization at your disposal. This is unfortunate, because no two homes are exactly alike, and your décor should never be limited by the showroom selections. Round2

At Natural Area Rugs, We Do Things A Bit Differently

At Natural Area Rugs, customization is the name of our game. For instance, we recently received a letter from a customer who had a specific need for a rug to complement their existing floor shading. The customer was highly specific, saying, “The seagrass rug we purchased is whatI want for this kitchen rug. I do realize I’m talking about a kitchen and possible spills, but we have no children. But I realize we will need to be careful.”

Now, some rug retailers would scour their inventory for the closest match (however inexact), and then try to convince the customer the showroom item was somehow superior to the requested specification. But At Natural Area Rugs, we love it when our customers come to us with a specific, detailed vision of what they’re looking for. All of our natural area rugs are custom-made, and the more details you can give us, the easier our job becomes. We specialize in crafting area rugs according to the needs of our customers, and we are committed to ensuring the satisfaction of each individual who comes to us for assistance.

Choosing Area Rugs for the Holidays

So you’ve decorated your Christmas tree, you’ve adorned your facade with colorful lights, and perhaps you have even wound some shimmering garland around your staircase. Yes, your home is just about ready for the holidays, but something’s missing. Ah, yes. The area rugs. While your simple-patterned rugs may do the trick for the majority of the year, they don’t exactly burst with holiday festivity. So what can we do about this? It’s time to unveil some seasonal rugs.

Tips for Choosing the Right Rugs

  • First, we’ll need to pay a bit of mind to the general rules, specifically as they pertain to size. For dining rooms, your rugs should be large enough to cover the dining room table and chairs (even as people back up their chairs to leave the table). For living rooms, there are no strict rules of area rug etiquette, but traditionally, you would want to consider 5’x8’, 8’x10’ or 9’x12’.
  • Go with bold patterns and colors. The holidays are a time for ostentatious displays and unapologetic frivolity, so don’t be afraid to replace your simple symmetrical patterns with boisterous designs. After all, the goal here is to be festive and celebratory. So consider kicking it up a notch, and don’t be afraid to break the general rules of style in favor of something a bit more .
  • Consider your colors. Red and green are traditional for Christmas, while blue and white are suitable for Hanukkah. If you’re going for a general winter theme, you’ll want plenty of white to invoke images of snow. Failing that, consider the color scheme of your other holiday décor, and choose your holiday area rugs accordingly.
  • Choose extremely durable fibers. If you’re hosting the Christmas or Hanukkah festivities, your rugs are going to see a tremendous amount of foot traffic, and they might even see their fair share of debris from all of the chips, dips and other snacks that your guests carelessly drop. With that in mind, you’ll want to choose an extremely durable rug that’s capable of standing up to the worst abuse. Consider going with Sisal area rugs, Seagrass area rugs or wool area rugs.

Choosing Eco-Friendly Rugs for a Child’s Room

You love your kids, and you would do anything for them, but sometimes the décor can get a bit tricky. You paint fluffy clouds along the walls, you adorn the living space with endless Hello Kitty (or perhaps Ninja Turtle) accoutrements, and you ensure that there is no shortage of shelves to showcase the colorful parade of toys, dolls, action figures and other reflections of your child’s imaginative personality. But what about the flooring? Have you given any thought to choosing the appropriate area rugs to provide that much-needed finishing touch?

Choose Eco-Friendly Rugs

Sisal rugs, shag rugs, jute rooms, wool rugs…what do they have in common? They’re all natural and eco-friendly. When it comes to choosing rugs for a child’s room, of course you want to give some thought to the aesthetic appeal, but first and foremost, you need to consider your child’s safety. When you head out to the local rug store—or to your local home improvement store—in search of area rugs for a child’s room, you may find yourself surrounded by inventory that may look attractive, but is in fact marinated in volatile organic compounds and other toxins. It’s essential that you choose eco-friendly area rugs that not only look great, but are conducive to healthy breathing.

 

Choose Bright Colors

When it comes to babies and infants, it’s always best to choose vibrant, warm colors that create an inviting and attractive atmosphere. When choosing from among natural fibers like sisal and wool, you have a veritable cornucopia of color selections available to you, and it’s surprisingly simple to create the ultimate safe haven for your little one.

But what happens when you get beyond the toddler stage? No matter how fantastic a particular selection may look to you, it’s always a great idea to get the child’s opinion (assuming that the child has reached the age where he or she can communicate with words). After all, it’s great to have uniformity and complementary design throughout the room, but it’s even greater to let your child’s imagination soar. So what if the area rugs don’t match the walls? When you foster creativity at an early age, who knows what kind of long-term spark you may be igniting?

Layering rugs

We specialize in natural fiber rugs and sell everything from seagrass rugs to wool rugs, shag rugs, to sisal rugs. We even sell rug pads and carpet stair treads. But we don’t stop there. If you ever have any questions our customer service representatives are always just a phone call or email away to help you decide the best look for your living room or if your new bamboo rug looks better in your kitchen or dining room.

 

So without further ado we want to tell you about a new trend that’s taking over homes across the country, one that is easy and affordable and looks really nifty and cool. Chances are you’ve heard about “layering rugs” and the name says it all. Layering rugs is basically when you layer rugs on top of each other in different angles. For example; if you have a rug that is rectangular, you may want to put a round rug on the left hand corner of the rectangular rug or another rectangular rug at the top right hand corner. This will add texture to the room as well as color and artistry that the room may not otherwise have had.

 

When layering rugs there are a few important things you’d like to keep in mind. First; decide what look you want to go for. For one, pick rugs that have the same color and pattern scheme so it’s not too jarring when placed on top of each other. Natural fiber rugs tend to be neutral in color so placing a more vibrant rug on top can breathe life into an otherwise dull room.

 

Rugs are useful for many reasons; they are stain-resistant, sound absorbent, and often times fire-retardant. But they also tell a thing or two about the rug owner. Pick rugs that speak to you and are a great expression of yourself and your family. If you don’t like stripes, don’t get a striped rug. If you find a cute rug that you love, but it’s not big enough, try placing it over a larger neutral colored rug.

 

These are just some of the ways you can layer your rugs at home. Remember make sure that the rugs go together before you just pair them. Layered rugs that add vibrant colors and textures add to the room. Layered rugs that are frumpy and don’t go well with each other take away from the room. If you are unsure, get a second opinion.

Redesiging Living Room

One of our customer, Chandler Quarles, recently redesigned her Living Room with one of our rugs! Check out photos and excerpt of her blog post below:

Trieste Jute Rug

Trieste Jute Rug

After quite a bit of research, I realized that Jute would be my softest option and have the look I wanted. I looked all over the web and at a few stores, and it was a bit of a challenge to find something that fit all the descriptors.

Finally, I found this rug at NaturalAreaRugs.com. It came in just the right size, was just the look I was going for, and with the $50 off coupon code they were running, it came in at $119 with free shipping. The perfect price! I also read great things about the expediency and quality from Natural Area Rugs. So I took the plunge and pressed the button.

And in just a few days, I unrolled our rug, and it was love! The perfect way to warm up the space just in time for the cooler months.
