THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MACHINE MADE AND FINE OR HANDMADE RUGS?

Machine Made Area Rugs

Machine made rugs can offer a lower price alternative to hand knotted rugs. Machine made rugs usually have a life span of about 20 years or less, depending on the quality and fiber used. Machine made rugs are very different from hand made rugs; on the back of the rug, you will find an over stitch pattern. There aren’t any individual knots on these rugs, they are held together by the over stitch construction. These rugs are perfect for customers that are on a budget, and perfect for high traffic areas, like living rooms, playrooms and tv rooms! If you have smaller children or pets, these rugs are the way to go; they are tough and durable, and easier to clean than hand made or antique rugs.

Fine or Handmade Area Rugs

These are a little more pricey, but the quality they offer is unmatchable! Hand knotted rugs are made on a specially designed loom and are knotted by hand. The making of hand knotted rugs is a very ancient art and a very tedious and time consuming operation.Also called Oriental rugs, hand knotted and hand woven rugs are often collectibles. The quality of these rugs depends on numerous factors, such as the knot count, dyes used and quality of the yarns. Hand knotted rugs are typically more costly, but the life span of these rugs is greater if well maintained. There are also fine quality machine made wool rugs that can last for decades if well maintained.

As a general rule of thumb, your area rug should be large enough to fit under most, if not all, of a room’s furniture. Make sure to consider your furniture and take note of the various layout options in your room. Keep in mind that furniture can be used to hold area rugs in place.

Whether your living area is in an open plan or in a defined space also makes a difference in the rug size. In an open plan, the rug helps define the living area and improve the acoustics of the space. Here are some suggestions on Area Rug placement for certain rooms.
