5 Tips For Decorating With Your New Sisal Rug

A home represents what you find appealing and it is only natural to sometimes want something different. You could definitely rip down wall paper, paint the walls or even buy new furnishings but there is one, often over looked, decoration that is not only useful but can enhance and change the appearance of any room. Those overlooked items are sisal rugs.

Sisal rugs are eco-friendly rugs made of the natural fibers found in cactus plants. They are naturally water resistant as well as fire resistant. An additional benefit to the material is that the rugs do not allow dust particles to adhere which is a fantastic benefit to those who suffer from dust allergies and they do not attract any static electricity. These rugs are the ultimate way to redecorate a room without breaking your budget.

Sisal Rug

Decorating with sisal rug

Here are 5 tips to use sisal rugs to help bring a new sense of style to any room:

Layering
Many people erroneously place a rug atop hard wood floors, tile or even carpet but there is an additional decorating tip to consider. Sisal Rugs are naturally a neutral color that varies but the border can be changed to any color depending on where you shop. While a neutral color can be exactly what a room needs, A Sisal rug can be used as the foundation for a lighter throw on top. If you are decorating with a Western theme you can easily throw a leather, faux cow hide on the rug and instantly you have transformed the look.

A Pop of Color
While a typical Sisal rug may be neutral in style; you always have the option of buying one colored. You can throw in a splash of color with a bold, vibrant pattern or color. You also can paint designs on the rug yourself, allowing you to personalize the rug to match your personality and unique decorating style.

Protection
A common decorating, and safety, design employed with those that have stairs is to lay down carpet as a runner. Skip that heavy and hard to vacuum carpet and instead use a Sisal rug that is cut to fit the width and length of the stairs. You can easily affix them atop of the stairs with a non-slip bottom layer and then place the rug over. When you need to clean, take them down and clean!

Centerpiece
One unusual use for Sisal rugs may be to use them as a centerpiece in the room. Paint a single wall in a contrasting color to the remaining walls. Then paint a design, or buy a Sisal rug in a vibrant design and then use it as a tapestry. You can change the look of the tapestry by repainting as needed. This is often one of the most overlooked uses of a Sisal rug in decorating.

Define Areas
Sisal rugs can also be used to define certain areas. If you have a large room that is used as a great room for a living room and a dining room, you can use a Sisal rug to define the areas. Use one rug in the dining area and a different one for the living area. By choosing colors that complement each other, but still provide a distinct decorating style you can help define the areas.

Decorating or redecorating a room is very simple and it can be incredibly inexpensive if you utilize Sisal Rugs. They are versatile, hardy and a natural and eco-friendly way to change the entire look of the home.
