You may have noticed that in some homes the carpets are worn out in certain places and not in others. That is due to the amount of foot traffic the carpet receives and the amount of maintenance it is given. Worn out carpets are not attractive and so to avoid this, lot of people decide to lay down washable area rugs and washable rug runners in certain areas.
Fully fixed carpets can be difficult to clean, and expensive to replace. By using washable rugs and runners in hallways and stairs any accidental spillages or mud walked in by pets (or children!) can be easily cleaned quickly and cheaply. Also, should any damage come to the carpet, or in the case that it is worn out through use it can simply be replaced with a new one. Washable floor rugs come in a variety of styles and fabrics and the most popular ones are the washable cotton rugs and wool rugs.
Since you can throw a washable cotton rug straight in to the washing machine, if it is small enough, it does matter if it becomes dirty every week. Large washable area rugs can be used to fill a room or to divide a large area into two smaller spaces, such as a dining room and kitchen. Traditional rug runners available are popular for hallways or odd-shaped rooms, lending an unexpected splash of colour and warmth to an area that may be otherwise difficult to decorate. Traditional round rugs are ideal for smaller rooms with limited floor space.
Washable rugs and runners are perfect opportunities for enhancing or refreshing the interior design of your home. Given the wide range of styles, colours and textures available you are almost spoilt for choice when deciding how best to outfit your floor. The best part is that if you are redecorating or simply want a quick, cheap way to transform your hallway or stairs, you merely need to change your carpet runner design.
Stair carpet runners are also available, these are similar to standard carpet runners except that they lack the backing used for normal carpet flooring. Stair carpets are often held in place using stair rods, which can also bring a touch of extra style. It is always best to hire a professional to fit stair carpet runners if you are not certain of how to proceed yourself. Unevenly fitted runners could cause someone to trip and thus are especially dangerous on stairways.
Protecting your nice expensive carpet means avoiding too much walking on it and too many spills and stains from accumulating on it. This is why it makes a lot of sense to washable floor rugs laid down in the areas which are likely to see the worst of the damage. There are many styles available and there colours and designs to match just about any scheme you can think of. These washable cotton rugs are not expensive and you can use more than one in each room, as you require.
