  • one month ago

Fine handmade rugs are passed down as heirlooms and become a part of a family’s legacy. They are made by skilled carpet weavers one knot at a time using ancient techniques. These carpets are of great quality and they are masterpieces that you can walk on. These rugs have a flatter pile and the density of knots per square inch at the back of the carpet defines its quality. A better-quality carpet has more densely packed knots per square inch. A typical Jaipur Rugs hand-knotted carpet can have anything upward of two million knots and it takes anywhere close to six to ten months to make a hand-knotted carpet depending on the intricacy of the design. 

Let’s give you 12 reasons why you need handmade rugs:

Add Classic elegance to your decor

A classic rug matching the furniture and décor of the room can make a bedroom look royal and channel old-world charm. Wool and silk rug with classic motifs is the easiest and most elegant choice where you can never go wrong.

Make your space look bigger

A trick often used by architects and interior designers to make a room look bigger is by choosing to put in stripes in the dé cor. A rug with stripes on it is a great idea if you intend to make your room look bigger and give the dé cor a more clean-line approach.

Add an abstract feel to your space

If your bedroom feels a little boring to you – go shop for an abstract rug. A unique design will instantly make your room pop out and drown out the dull and boring. This will also help you add some character and flair to your room.


Anchor your minimalist look

If your dé cor philosophy is, less is more than the only must-have in your bedroom is a neutral tone rug that eliminates the need for any other décor piece. The basic rug can singlehandedly add a touch of glamour and command attention.

Grace your galleries and hallways

If you aren’t able to make up your mind about committing to an area rug then try your hand at a runner first. You can place it on the side of the bed or at the end of it, or even underneath with just the sides coming out a little. Either way, it can be a great precursor to an area rug.

Just visualize the bedroom you want and we assure you that the right rug will amplify its décor immensely.

Layer in style

By layering your rugs, you can use your smaller rugs in bigger settings and completely transform the dé cor of your rooms. Our advice is to start with a good base rug. It is important that the base rug is neutral – something like a plain, jute, sisal, stripe, or black and white pattern. Even though the objective is to layer, it will be an advantage if the base rug alone can by itself hold the décor. Just in case you want to go the minimalist way. So, chose a versatile neutral base rug that can transform the room once layered up.

Make your office space come alive

It&rsquo's been months since our homes turned into proxy offices and it looks like the concept of work from home is here to stay. One thing that has been on many of our minds since work from home became an integral part of our lives is to turn that mundane desk in the corner of the house into a functional and inspiring home office that inspires creativity and productivity.

The easiest way of defining your home office space is by adding a rug to the décor. It will instantly anchor the room and give you a starting point to transform your décor.

A rug can help you add plushness to the floor as well as visual and stylish warmth. It will make the room feel complete with very little effort.

Cozy choices for the kid’s room

Decorating a kid’s room can be fun, but the choices can be overwhelming. The first thing to get out of the way is getting the measurement right. Kids generally have small beds, but a lot of other paraphernalia in the room so make sure that you choose a slightly larger size rug, which gives them a larger surface to goof around on. 

An artisan’s blessing in your home

Each handmade rug is a unique work of art. No two handmade rugs can be alike even if the design is similar. So, what you are essentially bringing home is not just a home dé cor product, but an art piece that you can walk on. Of all kinds of rugs, the handmade ones, especially the hand-knotted rugs are the most durable. Just like the art form, these rugs can be passed down through generations. Most handmade rugs end up as family heirlooms that are cherished by several generations
