DEWSBURY, ENGLAND, February 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With the current trend for wood and laminate flooring, floors may be easy to clean but they are never quite as cosy as carpets. Rugs are a great way to add a temporary splash of colour and luxurious comfort to a room. But with so many similar modern styles available, how do you stand out from the crowd and choose something completely unique? Vintage rugs and recycled rugs can offer an alternative to the mass produced high street and furniture store staples.
Vintage Style Rugs
Rugs that appear to have some age to them or are inspired by the home furnishing fashions of the past have risen in popularity in recent years. The demand for vintage style rugs and home furnishings has increased, as arts and crafts and "make do and mend" has inspired a whole new generation of crafters and vintage style fashionistas, looking to recapture some of that old style glamour.
Those with some cash to splash can treat themselves to a Victorian style hand knotted 100% wool rug with ornate patterns and swirls. For those keeping an eye on the purse strings, a crocheted blanket-style rug can bring comfort and cosiness to any home, and is perfect for the cottage style retro look.
Recycled rugs can come in all shapes and sizes and can be made from all sorts of recycled products. Combining modern techniques for recreating soft furnishings from old rubbish with an eco approach to home furnishings, rugs can now be made from recycled materials such as old PET plastic bottles. Environmentally friendly, these rugs are thick, soft, and come in a number of different shades.
These recycled PET rugs are not only easy on your pocket, but easy on the environment too. Surprisingly, they are very thick and soft, and can be woven into almost any kind of pattern.
