Bamboo Rugs- Cool in More Ways Than You Think

Have you seen our line of bamboo rugs? If not, check them out now.

Bamboo is considered to be a very cool look these days, and we agree. Bamboo carpets are a very popular choice with our customers, especially when you want that “cool” look with a touch of durability.

Bamboo has been used as flooring for centuries, especially in Asia where it can easily be found in many locates. It’s an environmentally friendly plant that’s fast growing, which means that overharvesting is rarely a concern. Plus, it grows so fast, that a plant is usually ready to harvest again within two years.

So, bamboo is cool in appearance and environmentally cool, but my favorite part is, it’s also “cool” to the touch.

After a long day on my feet, I love to take my shoes and socks off and step onto a bamboo rug. It’s very cool, relaxing and soothing to the touch. Who’d have guessed that there is a little therapy that comes with every bamboo rug?

Stop by our website – today and check out our selection of bamboo rugs.

Why Wool Sets the Standards in Fine Rugs and Carpets

Why is wool considered by so many decorators and home owners as the standard in fine carpets?

For starters, wool is perhaps the softest and most luxurious carpeting material made. Walk barefoot on a wool rug and notice how the smooth, soft texture feels. Wool area rugs also hold their shape and fresh look longer than any other type of rug.

In fact, that durability makes them one of the best values in rugs over the long haul. Properly cared for, wool rugs can last well beyond 50 years, long after synthetic rugs have probably been replace three or four times.

Wool fibers are naturally elastic, so when they are crushed or stretched, they bounce back to their original shape and design. Synthetic fibers tend to be the opposite. They flatten, pull and wear easily, particularly in high traffic areas or beneath heavy furniture.

Nature has also given wool a few added bonuses: wool is naturally flame retardant and stain-resistant. Expose wool fibers to a flame, and they won’t ignite. They self-extinguish quickly, often leaving behind only a small patch of ash that can be brushed away. Expose synthetic carpets to a flame and you end up with a very ugly patch of melted carpet.

Moreover, as I mentioned wool is naturally stain-resistant as wool fibers tend to repel liquids, the cause of most carpet and rug stains. This doesn’t necessarily mean that a wool rug can’t be stained, but when a spill does get on a wool rug, it usually blots up easily.

Someone in your home suffering with allergies?

You definitely want wool. Wool has the unique ability to capture and hold dust particles in its fibers, cutting down on airborne dust and other particles in the air. A boon for anyone with allergies. There are studies that have shown that wool rugs may even help purify the air by absorbing common indoor contaminants like formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide.

And if the day ever comes that you decide to “retire” your wool rug, don’t worry, unlike synthetics, its biodegradable and won’t harm the environment.

Here at Natural Area Rugs, we offer some of the finest wool rugs available, at prices that make most of our competitors’ jaws drop. If you’re ready to try a wool rug, or would like to check out the styles available in wool rugs, just visit our website, or feel free to stop by our showroom in Beverly Hills.

Changing Rugs When the Mood Suits You

Occasionally, someone will come into our store and have a difficult time making up their mind as to what rug to buy for a particular room.

Sometimes they’re not sure if a particular rug is always going to suit the mood they want the room to project. Sometimes they’re uncertain as to whether a particular style will always blend in they way they want it to. And sometimes they just like to change their minds and do something different every few months.

If you’ve had the above problems, or if you have any other reason you might want to switch from sisal to bamboo, or from bamboo to seagrass or mountain grass, changing th e rugs in a room on occasion is a great idea.

Maybe the season’s changing, it’s getting cooler and you want to switch from jute to a warm wool area rug.

Whatever the mood, season or reason, switching out your natural area rugs on occasion is the perfect way to change the look, the feel or the mood of a room.

Many interior decorators are increasingly finding this to be a great way to give a room a “new” look from time-to-time, without having to completely redo the room.

So if you happen to be someone who likes to change things up from time-to-time, or just can’t make up your mind, try buying several different styles of our quality area rugs, and switch them out as the mood suits you.

Remember, you can view samples of all of our natural fiber rugs online, or, if you’re in the Beverly Hills area, stop by our store. We’re ready to help you and offer decorating suggestions.
