The cover you put on the floor can make or break a room. Flooring decisions are about more than looks. You should consider durability, comfort, and cost too. But when it comes to looks, nothing is more appealing than a handmade rug.

Your first question may be, a handmade rug or carpet flooring – which is best? Carpet is fixed to the floor from wall to wall; rugs can be moved about and usually only cover a certain area. Many prefer moveable mats as they are more versatile and gather less dust, since air can flow beneath them and they can be cleaned under. 

In any room, they can make a considerable style statement. For example, in an exotic themed living room, living room rugs with ornate pictorial designs will be the most admired works of art in the space. In a modernist bedroom, a bedroom rug with a non-traditional, geometric shape will suit the aesthetic. In an open-plan living area with industrial furniture, a design featuring textured patterns will bring warmth to the space. 

A handmade rug is a tactile investment piece that can be passed down. They have been valued across the world for many years. The handmade carpet is generally one of two types – those that are hand tufted, or those that are hand knotted. Carpets knotted by hand, such as Persian rugs, are the most labour intensive, hence they’re more costly. They’re woven completely by hand on a specific loom in a traditional, time-consuming process. The value of one of these cannot be over-estimated, so if you splurge on one, be sure to take care of it properly. Keep it away from direct sunlight and rather have professionals come to clean it.
