Ever popular to break up the large areas of an open home, or add a pop of color to a wood floor, area rugs are a staple in most homes. With so many colors, designs and textures they are a great way to accent any room. From the expensive Orientals to the flea market finds, area rugs just add that special something to an otherwise boring floor.
There are a couple types of area rugs that are being made today. The machine-made rugs are less expensive and created on automated weaving looms. Multiple colors of yarn are used and sewn into a backing material and while they are designed by talented individuals, they are created by the machine.
Handmade or hand-knotted rugs are unique because they are full of little inconsistencies. Each rug turns out somewhat different even if the overall pattern is made many times. There are typically variations in the color of the yarn and telltale signs that identify the weaver.
