Old Fashioned Rugs Vs Modern Rugs
If you are in the market for a new carpet then you may want to consider some of the differences between traditional rugs and modern rugs. Although some people enjoy the charm and warmth of traditional rugs, they also have a sturdier appearance than some of the contemporary rugs that are currently available. In addition, if you choose to install an old fashion rug in your home you will be able to preserve it in its original state which many of the contemporary rugs are not able to do. With that said there are a few key differences between the two types of carpets.
First, there is the quality of the fiber that the rug is made from. Old-fashioned rugs are usually made from wool. This wool is harvested from sheep that are raised on a farm in Iran or Turkey. The wool is harvested and then processed to create the rug. Typically the rug is made from the wool that is bleached and then finished with chemicals to help it resist stains better.
Modern rugs are usually made from synthetic materials such as nylon and polyester. Although these materials are less expensive, they are not as durable as the natural fibers that are harvested from sheep. It is important to remember that when you choose to purchase a rug whether it is an antique or a modern-styled styled rug you are choosing to invest in a piece of furniture that will last a long time. Although most rugs will endure quite well, they will not outlast the life of your home. If you have a high quality wool rug and choose to install it in your home, you can rest assured that you will be able to enjoy it for many years to come.
