When it comes to furnishing your home you may need advice. You may lack the eye for design but there are plenty of people out there to help. You need to bear in mind practical issues like how many people live with you and if you have small children is your home child friendly as well as child proof; they are prone to damaging things accidentally. That is not to say you will want to live surrounded by poor quality, things that you are willing to throw away after being damaged irreparably.
Plain and Simple
Some decisions are obvious. Why would you pick light colored furniture and carpets when children are prone to spill things? The answer generally is that you wouldn’t. You would probably put covers over chairs and sofas and pick fitted carpet in a fairly plain design so a damaged area could be easily repaired. If you have a reasonably sized house you can still think about keeping a room for entertaining friends that is virtually child free. In those circumstances you may opt for real quality, something like a good Persian Rug which is often an excellent investment and a really nice way to provide color in a room.
There are companies able to offer advice on such rugs, with years of experience in the trade. Antiques are especially valuable yet rugs woven today still employ the skills of ancient artisans. Skills have been handed down through the centuries and experts will be able to point out the quality of a rug. When it comes to color, few things in a home can match the richness of color on offer. The natural dyes used provide real depth in blues and reds. Color is a personal taste but other guidance is best taken from someone that deals in such rugs and understands their manufacture.
The fitted carpets that may be in many of your rooms are mass produced and the price reflects that. When it comes to a Persian Rug that is the work of a skilled artisan who will have taken a great deal of time over a single rug. It is a prize that will never lose its value even if it is something that you should largely keep away from the children. Rugs are durable and hard wearing, and reparable, but why take the risk?
