The most important component of an area rug is the fiber. The type of fiber used and the construction of the pile are the two key factors in determining how durable the carpet will be. There are five basic types of fibers used in carpets.
Nylon is the most popular of the pile fibers used. It is the most durable of the synthetics and offers excellent durability and strength. It is wear-resistant, resilient and withstands the weight and movement of furniture. It has also good stain resistance capacity and is an excellent choice for heavy traffic areas. It is available in beautiful colors, making it a great style choice throughout the home.
Area rugs are one of the most interesting design elements you can introduce into your room. Rugs can help redecorate a room from the ground up and most work as a decorative centerpiece. Area rugs are investments that will last a lifetime, also protect your floors, insulate against heat or cold and absorb sound to minimize noise.

Decide on the style to complement your home decor.
Choose a fiber material that suits your needs the best. Area rugs come in variety of materials and here are the most common: Wool area rugs: Wool is the preferred fiber for its resilience to wear and tear and the soft texture which brings warmth to any room. Wool is more durable than synthetics and resists dust mites that can exacerbate allergies. A wool material is the key element of high quality area rugs. Cotton area rugs: Cotton is often used in conjunction with wool. Cotton-wool area rugs have a nice feel and typically cost less than all-wool area rugs. However, cotton is not as durable as wool.
Nylon area rugs: Synthetic nylon area rugs have great strength and stain resistance. They usually cost less than area rugs made of natural materials, but do not keep their value like quality wool area rugs or silk area rugs.
Measure the area you want to cover with your new rug. Keep in mind these guidelines when measuring your space:
for living room, an area rug should go slightly under your sofa, as little as one inch will do. Or, if you would like to use the area rug as an accent while showing more of your beautiful floor, be sure to go a minimum of one foot around coffee table.
For dining room, allow the area rug to be large enough to cover the back legs of your dining room chairs when pulled out.
