Hardwood floors are all the rage right now. They are easy to clean and add a sense of beauty to any room; however, limiting yourself to hardwood (or laminates that are designed to look like hardwood) in rooms like your living room or your bedroom can leave a lot to be desired. This is where rugs come in. Adding an area rug to any space can add a splash of color, originality, and warmth that can create that touch of elegance you’ve been looking for, and choosing from the range of seagrass rugs can provide all that elegance with a hint of uniqueness—but how do you know which rug will be right for your room?
Here at Natural Home Rugs, we have a lot of seagrass rugs to choose from, and, since they are all unique and beautiful in their own way, it is important to know your space to ensure you are choosing the rug that will really make your room stand out.
Here are 4 ways you can create the design you’ve been dreaming about by choosing the right seagrass rug for your space
1) Size is key
Make sure you choose the right size (and shape) of carpet to match your space. Adding a seagrass rug that is too small, too big, or the wrong shape for your space can take away from the elegance of the rug—and the room. When you come in to look at our variety of seagrass rugs, make sure you bring the measurements of your room with you. Our experts can help you find a size of seagrass rug that will complement your space. And bring pictures, too. Knowing what furniture you have where, or what your plans for furniture placement are, can help when selecting the size and shape of rug that will work best for the room.
2) Choose a color that compliments—or stands apart
Our seagrass rugs come in a variety of shades and colors. Particularly popular is our neutral green collection, which ranges from olive green to lighter variations of sage. Because they tend towards neutral shades, most colors will go well with the current furniture and color scheme of your room; however, if you want a splash of color for an extra creative pop, you can purchase a seagrass rug with a colorful border.
3) Consider where the rug is going before you buy
Seagrass is a fiber that is grown in water, so it is naturally strong and resistant to most spills and stains. These can easily be wiped up, and you can vacuum over your seagrass rug as well. Further, they are used in their natural form, not dyed, which means no chemicals or toxins that could cause allergic reactions are used, and there is no chance the dyes will seep into your floors. They are long-wearing, so can be kept in high-traffic areas, too. There are places, however, in which you should not place seagrass rugs. They have a smooth finish, so should not be placed on or near stairways, and, like most natural fibers, they can be susceptible to mold and mildew, so should not be used in areas that are persistently moist or highly humid.
4) Find a pattern that speaks to you
Our natural seagrass rugs are handmade in a number of one-of-a-kind textures, including the original weave, tight-knit weave, basket weave, and even a herringbone weave. Find a texture that speaks to you, and it’ll be sure to make your room a hit.
