Rugs may look like just an ordinary, everyday home object, but they play a role that is important in order to maintain a comfortable and healthy living. Aside from this, rugs also affect the over-all appearance of a room, because admit it or not, when it comes to aesthetics, every little thing matters. That is why it is vital that you give ample thought in choosing rugs for your households. They should be practical, functional and conventional.
Most rugs that are made from natural fibers are a good choice, but their price tags can be a little too much for those who have a budget to hold on to. What’s a better alternative? Seagrass rugs. They are as durable but at a fraction of the cost because seagrass is cheap and easy to harvest, and they also tend to grow back quickly. They are way more affordable than the classic tatami rugs from Japan.
Seagrass rugs are made from reedy fibers that grow on shallow, coastal waters, mostly along the shores of India and China. They are smooth, shiny and are extremely long lasting. They come in great natural colors like beige, green and brown that are sometimes incorporated with each other in the same rug and so they do not need to undergo expensive dyeing processes to look good. Because they come in neutral shades, they are guaranteed to blend in and tie the look of just about any room in your home. They will fit in just about anywhere!
Since these rugs are made with tough and rigid fibers, they are very durable and hard-wearing. You can be assured that they can withstand heavy foot traffic and won’t fall apart for years. They are also easy to maintain. They resist stain and dirt, so aside from the weekly shaking to get the dust and dirt off, you can clean them with just the use of a vacuum cleaner or with water and soap.
The fact that seagrass rugs are made from all natural components mean that they do not contribute to any environmental harm. If you want to do your part to protect the environment, go for seagrass rugs instead of the ones made from synthetic materials.
