For over 100 years, round carpet has been the preferred choice of flooring for homes and businesses. The history of this type of rug is fascinating! Read on to find out more about its past and present uses in one’s home or business.
1. YOU CAN GET A ROUND CARPET FOR ALMOST ANYTHING
The first thing you need to know about round carpet is that it comes in all shapes and sizes. There are round rugs available out there for any area of your home, from the living room flooring to the bathroom backsplash to the kitchen island counter. Wherever you want a pop of color or a little bit of pattern, you’ll be able find a small or large circular rug for your space.
2. IT’S PROBABLY BEST AS AN ACCENT PIECE
Round carpets tend not to take up much surface area – which means they can fit just about anywhere without conflicting too much with other items in the room. If you’re looking to add a little something extra to your space, a round carpet can be the perfect accent. Just remember that it’s not going to have much function as far as coverage goes – so choose wisely.
3. YOU CAN FIND THEM IN ALL KINDS OF MATERIALS
Yes, you’ll probably want a rug made from carpet fiber – but don’t think just because there’s no pile you’re limited to indoor spaces. As I mentioned before, round carpets come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. And they also come in different materials that are well-suited for being outside. From synthetic fibers meant for high traffic areas like restaurant kitchens to rugs with natural grass material more appropriate for low-traffic patio spaces, you can find a round outdoor carpet that works for your needs.
4. PROTECT IT WITH PADS AND COASTERS
Because round carpets don’t take up much space they’re also easily moved – and that means they’re more likely to get dirty or damaged if not placed in the right spot! Protect your investment by placing a felt pad beneath the entire carpet and then using weighted furniture coasters on smaller items like side tables and stools. It’ll save you lots of heartache later down the line.
5. IT’S PROBABLY BEST AS AN ACCENT PIECE
While I’ve seen large rugs used inside homes as flooring or even coffee before, most homeowners use them as an accent piece. And that’s not a bad thing! Just remember to use the rug as you were meant to – whether that’s placing it on your patio (just make sure it’s protected from the elements!) or in your living room to tie together a specific color scheme or theme you’ve created for your space.
Remember, whenever you’re thinking about adding a new rug to your home keep function and purpose at the forefront of your mind. Will this item serve more than one purpose? Is there another way I can accomplish the look I’m going for with less hassle? The most successful homes are those where functionality is key – so don’t be afraid to ask yourself these questions when considering a new addition.
