Are Jute Rugs Soft?

Choosing a new rug for a room can be intimidating. A rug makes or breaks the design of an entire space and selecting the wrong style puts you back to square one. Jute rugs are a great, natural choice for any space but you may be wondering if jute rugs are soft. The answer is yes, jute rugs are cotton soft and provide a pleasant cushion beneath your feet. A jute area rug in a room ties the space together or can serve as a focal point. Choosing wisely is the first step in successful decorating.

Jute rugs come in a variety of colors, patterns and textures. They’re usually seen in neutral hues of brown but also available in bold reds and greens. While the fibers of jute area rugs give them their own natural texture, how the fibers are woven makes a difference in the appearance of the rug. They feature geometric patterns and organic patterns formed from subtle combinations of colors. The natural color, texture and thickness variation of jute rugs are integral parts of their beauty and make them a unique addition to any room.

Bedroom bright
When you’re looking for a way to freshen and brighten a bedroom, jute rugs are the element you seek. Jute area rugs work in all bedroom designs including traditional, modern and contemporary. Laying a jute rug down over hardwood floors in a bedroom brings instant softness and lightens up the space. A jute rug fits right in with a soft, romantic palette in a bedroom and dampens noise adding to serenity. In a bedroom featuring a bolder palette, jute area rugs either tie decorative pieces together or are a subtle accent that balances the room. In bedrooms featuring wall-to-wall carpeting, adding a jute area rug delineates a sitting area and is in fashion with the current trend of layering rugs.

Sunroom softness
A sunroom is an ideal space for jute rugs. They give that beachy feel and compliment the warm sunlight that fills the room during the day. A growing trend in home interior design is the use of outdoor furniture inside. Furniture made from rattan and teak have found their way off decks and patios and into living rooms and sunrooms. Placing a jute rug among this kind of furniture looks and feels natural. Decorating a sunroom with outdoor furniture and throwing down a jute rug or two makes it feel warm and inviting even through the coolest of winter days.Jute Rugs

How to Shop for Eco-Friendly Rugs

Going green” isn’t simply some fickle fad. It’s a critical investment in the future of our planet. And hey, we do the best we can, right? We buy our produce at the local farmers’ market, we recycle, and we shop for hybrid cars. But still there are eco hazards all around us, perhaps even right beneath our feet. Here’s a pop quiz: Do you know what your carpet fibers consist of? They may be polluting your indoor air with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as we speak. Yikes.

But there is good news. One of the easiest ways in which you can help to green your home is by shopping for eco-friendly rugs. Now obviously this can be a bit tricky, because if you head down to your local home improvement store, you don’t always know what goes into those carpet fibers. If you want to find the best custom area rugs that will brighten up your home without polluting your precious air, you need to be a savvy shopper.

What to Look for in Area Rugs

If you’re ready to revolutionize your interior design with gorgeous, environmentally sound area rugs, there are certain things you need to look out for. This means that you might have to do a bit of sleuthing, ask questions and read between the lines, but when armed with the proper knowledge, anyone can find the perfect eco-friendly rugs. Here are some important things to consider:

  • Is the carpet made from renewable plant or animal fibers? When researching carpets, look for key words like “natural,” “renewable,” “organic” and “biodegradable.” For instance, sisal carpets are made from firm natural agave fibers, while wool carpets offer a combination of comfort, style and sustainability. Organic cotton, seagrass and coir also make for great natural carpeting.
  • Smell the carpeting. This may sound odd, but bear with me. A lot of people are crazy about that “new carpet” smell, but what you’re actually ingesting are the toxic VOCs, which are released as gases into the atmosphere. To give you a bit of perspective, VOCs are the same compounds that give mold its musty odor. So if the carpet smells too good to be true, just run away.
  • Take time to learn about the rug manufacturer and retailer. Is the company committed to sustainability? Are the product descriptions transparent about the use of specific fibers, chemicals and manufacturing processes? If you can’t find specific information about whether or not the fibers are actually safe, this is always a bad sign. When companies take the time to create beautiful, natural area rugs, they make it known. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if necessary.

Shopping for Eco-Friendly Area Rugs

If you still find the notion of eco-friendly carpet shopping to be overwhelming, you can rest easy knowing that there are a growing number of companies that are specifically committed to the cause of bringing better natural carpeting to the marketplace. You can find a wealth of gorgeous, fully customizable area rug options from companies like Natural Area Rugs, which make it easier than ever to get the best without compromising your conscience. So add a touch of style to your home, and win one for Mother Earth in the process.

Layering Area Rugs – Not Just a Fad

Do you love your area rugs? They can certainly go a long way in sprucing up an otherwise dull living environment, and once you begin decorating your floors with these stunning highlights of interior design, you wonder how you ever lived without them. But have you ever considering layering your area rugs? If you haven’t already done so, you’ll be amazed at how a simple dual rug combo can take your area rug appeal to the next level.

 

Tips for Layering Your Area Rugs

Stick with neutral colors if possible. They blend beautifully into any environment, and they’re just subtle enough to beautify the room without insisting upon themselves. If neutral colors don’t appeal to you, go with colors that complement the color scheme of the room. Your two layered rugs should be similar in color, but not identical. The key is to achieve contrast without pitting your colors against each other. For instance, you might go with a solid color on one rug, and an attractive pattern on the other, all while maintaining a consistent color scheme.

Choose a slightly larger rug for your base. The dimensions of your two rugs should be about the same, allowing you to present the illusion that your layered rugs were made for one another. Of course, you can toss this tip aside if you’re going for a specific artistic touch. The great thing about interior design is that you can let your creativity flow and think outside the box.

Vary your textures. For instance, you don’t want to toss one wool rug on top of another. That’s boring. Remember that the beauty is in the contrast, so try layering sisal over seagrass, or wool over bamboo.  We recommend materials like these because they’re gorgeous as well as sustainable. You might also consider jute area rugs and shag area rugs.

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.
