Real Hand-knotted Oriental Rugs Can Be Your Floor's Best Friend

If laying down one's life for a friend is proof of great love, it is apparent that fine quality oriental rugs when used in heavily trafficked areas of your home ARE your floor's best friends.


Think about it: to protect the hardwood floor in this entrance from rain, mud, snow and heavy foot traffic, the oriental rug is placed like an offering upon what amounts to an altar of sacrifice. 
But one of the mysteries of such rugs in this sacrificial role is their virtually immortal ability to resist immolation. Over many years of heavy use, the rug will generously stand on duty in fulfillment of its caring mission.


And the same can be said for oriental rugs used in dining rooms, kitchens, hallways, and stairways.




Some, worried about using beautiful handmade oriental rugs in the places where they have always been used, have begun to consider new fangled alternatives to cover the floors.

For what it's worth, none of the new fangled options have centuries of proof-in-use to compare with the go-to choice during all the time before cheap, machine made carpets arrived to attempt to answer the call that real handmade rugs have answered so beautifully all along.

Optical Illusion Rugs Could Be A Wild New Way To Make Your Floors Interesting

Some decorating decisions are made for reasons of beauty. Some for a specific taste. And others are made in a spirit of insouciance and fun. Here are some lovely floor options.

The image above is from a Panasonic ad campaign, showing the bugs and dust and everything else that lurks on the floor. That would presumably vanish if you would only buy a Panasonic vacuum cleaner.

If you want to create that worn wood look on your shiny new floor you could try this idea as seen on HOUZZ:

This next rug is "Poliedri" by Roubini Rugs. Just be careful not to stumble as you avoid tripping over the nonexistent obstacles on the rug:


Here's another one that might trip up friends and family. Pair it with a stairway for the ultimate in confusion:

The Beauty of Contrast: Traditional Rugs in Contemporary Spaces

Rethinking Patterned Rugs with Other Patterns In the Room

Think you can't use patterned rugs when there is a lot of other pattern in the room? Check this out, and think again. 


From the beautiful Persian rug on the floor to the incredible wallpapers by Bradbury & Bradbury, it's almost more pattern than can be imagined in a limited space; and it's close to perfect.
If this much accomplishes so much, you need not fear doing too much by doing less.
