Choosing a Handcrafted Area Rug for a Space in Your Home

Handcrafted area rugs come in many shapes, styles, and sizes. You can find a great handcrafted rug that will look fabulous in your home, regardless of the decor in your home. You should read this information about handcrafted rugs to gain a better understanding of what they are and the different things you can look for when shopping for one.

1. What makes handcrafted rugs different?

One of the great things about handcrafted rugs is that a lot of time, care, and attention goes into the making of each one. This is a fact that has made them appealing to so many people. There are different types of handcrafted area rugs to choose from so you are more likely to find something that fits your budget and your space.

One type of handcrafted rug to consider is the hand-tufted rugs. These are made by punching yarn through a sheet of fabric with a tufting gun. After the rug is done, then another piece of fabric will be attached to the back which holds the yarn in place. Another type of handcrafted rug is the hard knotted rug. This type of rug is made with traditional techniques and this has made them much appreciated by those looking for truly stand-out pieces for their home. The rugs are made on knotting looms where columns of threads are stretched along the top of the knotting loom, then a process involving weaving is completed with beautiful designs being weaved into each rug. 

2. What should you look for in a handcrafted rug for your home?

When shopping for rugs, you need to choose the right size. You want the rug to be highly visible in the space without being too big for your space. You also want it to have patterns that add to the rest of your decor and colors that are also incorporated in other areas of the space. It should also have the right shape for the space. In some cases, the shape should match the shape of the room because not matching it would cause the rug to look out of place. However, there are other situations where choosing a rug with a different shape would end up adding the perfect touch to the room it is being displayed in.
