All About Floral Rugs
The history of floral rug designs varies upon world region, time period, and actual floral designs that were popular at the time. Characteristics of Egyptian design was a simple repetition of a particular pattern. A typical design consisted of a single flower with a single bud or leaf on either side, repeated. Greek and Roman times brought crowns, garlands, baskets, and cornucopias into the picture. During the Byzantine era, floral designs became highly stylized and used neighboring hues from the color wheel for a more dynamic look. The Renaissance period saw a continuance of some of the characteristics of Greek and Roman styles, natural designs that became more ornate during the later Renaissance. All of these styles and more culminate in the floral styles of today that we see on floor rugs, as well as many other home furnishings.
Rugs with a floral pattern are generally machine-made, hand-tufted, or loop-hooked from synthetics, wool, polyester, or viscose to ensure a long life of wear and tear in your space. The pile height of the majority of our floral rugs is between 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch.

Color And Pattern
It can be difficult to talk about florals as a single category because, like flowers themselves, each pattern has its own style and personality. Floral rugs are available in a spectrum of colors and variety of styles, so you can choose from a myriad of shapes and sizes to find the perfect option for your own needs. The majority of our selection of floral rugs lie within the blue, tan, and black and grey range with plenty of other natural-hued options available as well. Our floral rug shapes are mainly rectangular and round with some others also available.
Caring For And Cleaning Your Floral Area Rug
Vacuum your floral rug just as often as you vacuum wall-to-wall carpet to eliminate excess dirt.
If you have a fringed rug be careful not to vacuum the area, as this could be damaging.
If your vacuum has a rug setting (which stops the rollers from spinning and just uses suction) use this option.
Brush up any loose hair on the bathroom rug or pet hair on area rugs before vacuuming by going in the same direction as the nap.
Rotate your area rugs a couple of times a year to avoid wear and fading from traffic and sunlight.
Give smaller rugs a good shake outside to remove dirt and grime.
Finding Your Perfect Floral Area Rug
Florals mix great with stripes, so consider using both elements together in your space.
Large floral prints look modern, while smaller patterns have a more vintage feel about them.
Consider mixing floral pattern with floral pattern, the key is sticking with a unifying background color and differently scaled patterns.
If you're worried about the floral trend disappearing, stick with bright and bold options that are more statement than bandwagon.
