Beach House Necessities

Screen shot 2014-05-12 at 12.21.47 PMThe weather is finally nice enough for us to start thinking about our summer plans. If you rented a beach house for the summer, you’re going to want to go shopping and make it look the part. We have some great decorating ideas that we’d love to share.

This way, you can make your rented space a little more homey.

Beach Area Rugs – This is where we come in. We’ve got a great selection of beach rugs that would be perfect for your home. Featuring the sun, surf and sand, our area rugs come in all shapes and sizes.

Area Rugs v Wall-to-Wall Carpeting

area rugs Having carpet in the home is a nice touch. Not only does it provide comfort for the feet, but ads a certain aesthetic to any room that is hard to find through other outlets. When deciding to purchase carpeting for your home, deciding between area rugs and wall to wall carpeting is a necessary process to undergo. Before making any decision, make sure you think it through thoroughly. Below are some things to consider and some situations in which an area rug may be the way to go for you:

1. Whats your flooring like? If you have hardwood floors, which hold value, covering the room with wall to wall carpet may be a poor decision. Leaving some flooring exposed ads dimension and also shows your home has history.

2. How often do your tastes change? One great thing about area rugs is that you can always rearrange them or purchase a new design. With time most people’s taste changes, and being able to reflect your change in taste within your home is very important to your personal happiness.

3. Do you have kids? Stains on a wall to wall carpet can be cleaned with a steamer, but tough ones are a no go. Even in the most dyer situations, an area rug can be brought to a dry cleaner to be brought back to it’s previous state.

How to Take Care of Your Rugs

Design_Rug_CORNERSHere are some tips to take care of your home rugs:

  • For larger area rugs it is great to vacuum them regularly to remove dust and dirt. It is best to do both sides of the rug but be careful not to damage the fringe of the rug. Be certain to take special precaution when vacuuming delicate or vintage rugs. You can attach a piece of nylon mesh over the vacuum attachment to prevent the edge of the vacuum from tearing the material. Change the mesh frequently as the dirt accumulates.
  • For hard to remove things, such as dog hair, you can use a stiff brush, brushing in the direction of the nap of the rug.
  • If the rug is small, you can take it outside and give it a good shake. You can even beat it to remove dust as well.
  • A great idea is to turn rugs over every few months, or at least once a year, to diminish regular wear & tear on one side in particular. You can also rotate them so regular foot traffic will not pressure one area of the rug in particular.
  • Some smaller area carpets are machine washable. Check the label to determine whether you can wash it in a machine and if so place it in a sealed pillowcase or mesh laundry bag. Wash on the delicate/gentle cylce in cold water. If the label says it can be put in the dryer, tumble dry on low. It is usually best not to machine wash or tumble dry braided rugs. You can lie them on a vinyl or concrete floor and rub carpet cleaning foam on the surface. You can then rinse or vacuum the rug and wait for it to dry before placing back on the floor.

Thankfully, we at Buy Area Rugs are always on the forefront of fashion trends. We  have a whole line of animal print rugs to suit your wardrobe.

For a more casual look you can go for one of our simpler styles, with subtle hues and a soft feel. These area rugs can be great in a lounge room or children’s bedroom.



If you are going for a more rustic look, perhaps try a more neutral tone. Pair a soft brown rug  with a wooden coffee table and standing lamp and you are in for a cozy winter. For the more daring, try a bold design that will spice up any room! Pair this with a glass coffee table to add a little edge.



Carpets can add so much to a room, especially in winter. It adds warmth and coziness to a wooden or tile floor and spices up a plain carpet.
