If your household includes children and/or dogs and cats you will know that keeping the floor clean can be almost a full time job. Pets and children are there to be enjoyed not to turn into a chore and one of the best ways of cutting housework is to make sure that your floor coverings are easy to clean and keep looking good. Rug Zone has a whole range of rugs for sale which will really help you to keep your home fresh and tidy, from traditional designs to jazzy modern styles to natural look flatweave rugs.
If you don’t have a fancy vacuum cleaner with a turbo head to remove pet hair, you may have resorted to the old methods of a damp cloth (this does work but is fiddly, time consuming and hard on the knees) or a rubber broom (not so hard on the knees but very hard on the rug) to remove it. A much easier option and one which is also cost effective and easy on the eye is choosing from one of the many hall runners available with a flat finish, in other words, no pile to catch all that lovely pet hair that all animals love to shed. If your front door is your main way in, you certainly don’t want damp soles picking up wads of pet hair because you will soon have it all over the house that way.
A hardwearing choice from Rug Zone’s many rugs for sale is a wool rug which does not need all the tender loving care you might think. A long piled shaggy rug is probably not the best choice if you have youngsters (who wants to spend their days picking spaghetti hoops out of the fibres) but other than that a wool rug is a good buy because the pile springs back time after time and the colours stay bright even in tough wear areas. Hall runners made of synthetic fibre are easy to clean but wool keeps looking good through lots of trampling and if your family tend to suffer from static build-up, a wool carpet can minimise that a lot.
What most families with children want to avoid is the crèche look when they have gone to bed. Rugs for sale on www.rugzone.co.uk come in many modern designs which will also withstand a lot of wear and if you have one of these in your living room you will find that once all the toys and clothes and homework has been put away, your space will look quite grown up and sophisticated. If you want to invite the dog in, that’s up to you, but you will know that if you do, the hair will soon sweep up if you have chosen one of our rugs for sale with a nice short, dense pile. If you then have to brush firmly to remove the dog hair, you won’t affect the look of the rug – if your dog’s hair is very prone to shedding, a silk mix makes it easier to shift.
