If you think about carpets as a relic of the past, take your time to make judgments. In fact, carpets are widely using in modern interior designs and can be present in any style, whether it be classic or modern, country or art deco. A correctly selected carpet will decorate the room, set the mood, create a feeling of coziness and warmth. With the help of carpets, you can zone the room, visually increase or decrease the space. Carpet is a connecting element between furniture, decor elements, and room decoration. It will perfectly fit into any interior.
When choosing a carpet, pay attention to the material. There are three main types of carpet materials:
- natural fibers: wool, silk, cotton, leather. Natural materials are the most expensive, look great, but require special care.
- artificial fibers - materials obtained by processing natural raw materials. For example, viscose, which is obtained from cellulose fibers.
- synthetic materials - materials which fully synthesized by humans: acrylic, propylene, polyamide.
Remember that rugs and carpet are not the same things! Carpet is a soft floor covering, designed for flooring the entire room. The rug has a finished pattern and a certain size, its edges are shaped. Carpet is a rolled material with unlimited length and a small repeating pattern. Carpets and rugs are made from the same materials. Carpets are often used in hotels, restaurants, offices, and rugs - in the design of private projects: apartments, country houses, villas. Some carpet options can also be used at home.

Basically, woolen rugs are made from sheep's wool. This material is not easily dyed, so wool rugs will not be such bright colors as rugs made of artificial and synthetic materials. On the other hand, woolen rugs do not lose color and will retain their original color after 10 years of use. Woolen rug looks solid, it is pleasant to the touch and well retains warmth. Woolen rugs are durable. A good quality rug can last up to 50 years. Cons: high price and the ability to accumulate a static charge. Those rugs are not suitable for allergic persons.
