Bring Elegance & Vibrance to Your Home with Gold Rugs
A gold area rug has the power to create a sense of cohesion and organization in any room. It not only adds comfort to your floors but also complements them beautifully. Moreover, gold area rugs exude a touch of luxury, elevating the overall ambiance of your space.
The color gold can signify extravagance, illumination, and wealth. It is also associated with exceptional quality, hence the term “gold standard.” Using gold color area rugs as home decor can add elegance and brightness to any room.
Gold area rugs blend well with various colors, adding sophistication to your home. Mixing it with white and cream tones can exude a traditional ambiance. On the other hand, gold combined with grey and black accents can bring a more modern feel to your space.
Materials and Weaving Techniques
Various materials are used in crafting gold area rugs. They can be made from natural fibers like wool and silk or artificial fabric like viscose. Wool is most commonly used in rug making as it is very durable. Meanwhile, silk is often combined with other materials to create a silky and robust finish. Meanwhile, viscose can imitate the look and feel of natural fibers.
Skilled artisans transform these threads into stunning luxury rugs using traditional and modern techniques. They can be hand-knotted, hand-loomed, or flatwoven. Hand-knotted rugs undergo an extensive process that uses a specialized loom, while hand-loomed pieces have their fibers pressed together and connected to thin threads. Flat-woven carpets tend to have a lower pile height because they are made without any knots.
Colors and Patterns of Gold Rugs
Gold is the color of refinement and opulence. When used in bespoke rugs, it demands attention as it is a vibrant color.
Gold area rugs often partner with other hues to create a more dynamic aesthetic. You’ll come across gold mixed with black for exquisite finishes, partnered with gold for a clean and understated look, or complemented with blue to make great accent pieces.
Gold color area rugs also come in various styles. For example, Oriental rugs typically use flowers or borders, while contemporary rugs are more free-form and expressive. Transitional carpets merge modern and antique designs. On the other hand, tribal area rugs use bold and vivid colors for their patterns.
Caring for and Cleaning Gold Rugs
Prolong the lifespan of your gold area rugs by following these easy-to-follow tips:
- Avoid placing designer rugs on rough surfaces, as these can cause bumps and lumps on your rugs.
- Direct sunlight may cause your rug’s colors and patterns to fade. We suggest placing it in cool, dry areas away from harsh sunlight. You may also use blinds and curtains to soften the natural light flooding your home.
- Avoid putting potted plants on top of your luxury rug. Moisture may seep through the rug’s fibers and cause mold and mildew to grow.
Decorating with Gold Rugs
Enhance your room’s interior by adding a gold area rug. Check out these decorating tips:
- Achieve a sophisticated atmosphere by following a gold and cream color scheme. By doing this, your furnishings with darker accents will instantly stand out and become a focal point.
- If your room receives little to no natural light, a gold area rug can help brighten the space, as this color reflects light beautifully.
- Add a splash of “old-world” opulence to your contemporary space by adding Oriental rugs adorned in gold.
- Make your private space a haven of relaxation with a gold bathroom rug. It fits perfectly in bathrooms with white tile and marble.
- Create a focal point with a gold rug for living rooms. Place it in the center of your planned seating arrangement, partner it with neutral-colored furniture, and let its stunning surface speak for itself.
- A gold rug for bedrooms creates a luxurious and opulent ambiance when you mix it with rich fabrics, such as velvet and satin bedding. Consider adding elegant drapes and decorative pillows or lamps for a more glamorous look.
Frequently Asked Questions about Gold Rugs
What rug pad size should I get for my gold area rug?
We recommend using rug pads to keep your rugs in place and avoid slips. Make sure to get pads that are smaller than your carpet. This prevents the rug’s edges from peeking out, making your room look tidier.
How do I store my bespoke rug?
Where and how you store your rug depends on how long you plan to store it. For short-term storage (a few weeks or so), you may wrap it in brown craft paper until it’s ready for use. You may use plastic with air vents that let moisture out for extended storage. Remember to roll the rug from one fringe end to another, not based on its long sides.
How do I check the quality of my gold area rug?
To determine your rug’s quality, study the material, texture, and durability of knots. Tighter weaves and higher knot counts per square inch translate to a long-lasting rug. Similarly, fibers with high lanolin content contribute to their overall resilience. A denser pile means your rug is made with quality in mind.
