Flat weave carpets and area rugs: A great option for any room and staircase!

Posted in Tips & Trends

The unique style of flat weaves is what makes them so desirable. The beauty of flat weaves is that they do not have the thick pile found in hand knotted rugs. Instead, they show a flat textural look. Flat weaves are available in many styles and designs, formal and informal. The prices range from low to high end, depending on how densely they are woven and the materials used. Since they are thin yet durable, flat weaves are perfect for under a dining room table, making cleaning and moving chairs effortless.

Flat weave  rugs are made with the fiber running horizontally rather than vertically, which has many advantages. Flat weaves are compact, preventing dirt from getting in and making them easy to clean. There is no pile to them and they are durable, so pressure from furniture in the room will not be a problem. Whether they are wool or synthetic or indoor/outdoor, flat weaves are perfect for any room or staircase!
