The popularity of area rugs has been exploding over the years, and everyone is talking about their easy cleanability–really, it usually takes a good shaking out!
However, spills will happen, and you may wonder if you can throw your rug in the washer. In many cases, the answer is yes, if the rug is made of cotton, polyester, or olefin fiber.
Wash it in cold water, and use the delicate cycle. Let it air dry.
First, check the label
Like broadloom, area rugs come in various fibers, the material from which the yarns are made. That makes it the rug itself, whether carpet broadloom, wall-to-wall or area rug.
Some natural jute, sisal, or wool fibers cannot be machine washed. Keep in mind there are also imitations–so check the instructions.
Also, look at all the rug’s components; many rugs have a jute backing so check the instructions.
Design tool for the hottest new trend: minimal maximalism
This is expected to be the rage in 2023. Maximalism was inspired by the "living out loud" philosophy, encouraging creativity, bright colors, and bold patterns.
This is a toned-down version, starting with neutrals and adding pops of color, such as layering with an area rug in Willow Grove, PA. You'll find lots of styles, designs, and fibers. We carry stock and will also advise you on our custom rug designs.
The minimalism-maximalism style is especially great for those curious about maximalism– but still not ready to go all in.
