Area rug in a New Orleans, LA home

What to consider in fibers for area rugs

Fiber choice is significant as you choose your new area rugs. However, the best fiber for your carpets will depend on what you intend to use the rugs for, so read along for more detailed information on this topic.

Your area rugs should fit your needs

An area rug can be added to some rooms for beauty and others for practical and protective purposes. The difference between the two can require different fibers, based on that need.

Area rugs added in high traffic areas strictly for durability are strong and offer stain protection at the very least. Nylon is a great all-purpose choice for average traffic levels, but some brands offer products that have stain and odor protection built into the fibers.

For spaces where visual appeal and comfort are everything, use polyester and wool for stunning choices that offer enough durability for low-traffic areas. These options are exceptional for color choices and style, but they also come in various cuts and piles.
