Shopping for area rugs or wall to wall carpeting for your cabin decor project? You might want to consider spending a little extra and investing in a berber rug. Berber is known to be one of the best wearing, easiest to clean carpets on the market today. Not to mention that it is a perfect compliment to your cabin decor or country rustic theme. This carpet is textured and originated by a tribe in North Africa name the Berbers. Back then they made these area rugs by hand with a bulky wool. The Berber carpet today follows the same traditions and are comparable in quality. By using flecked bulky yarns a long lasting carpet is created.
Berber not only looks absolutely natural in a cabin or log home, an added benefit is that every carpet is unique in appearance. The flecked looped yarns used to make Berber rugs provides a very unique finished product that ranges from upscale to down home country comfortable in decorating. The differences in the two qualities are the loop sizes. This is also what makes Berber styled rugs so versatile. From the large knobby loops (very rustic) to the small and tight looped rugs (very metropolitan), you’ll also find cut and loop designs, multiple level loops, and even a flat level loop option.
Berber in cabin decor is the ideal choice in area rugs and carpets for anyone who has allergies, pets, or young children in the home. The carpet is made from wool so it’s non toxic, non allergenic, and will stop bacterial growth on the spot. The manufacturing process that created the loops of wool have millions of air pockets in them so the carpet has a nice cushiony feel when you and your family walk across it. It also offers an insulating quotiont due to that same tight weaving with air pockets – making it ideal for drafty cabins or log home decor.
Berber carpet is one of the most durable carpet types and also one of the easiest to clean. This couldn’t be better in my opinion for families with children and pets. Stains are easily lifted from the carpet and it takes many footsteps in a high traffic area of your cabin home before showing any signs of wear. That is precisely why, in all cabin home decor projects with clients who demand carpeting or special area rugs, Berber is the first choice.
Although Berber is a pure wool fiber it is still cheaper than nylon, olefin, or any other type of man made carpet. Add to this that it matches cabin decor perfectly, outlasts most other materials, maintains a newer look longer, and it becomes very hard to select any other for cabin decor. Berber is one of the most affordable choices for your decorating budget and still look richer than many other choices on the market. Color choices with Berber carpet are as varied as the home decorating styles you could attain – even lodge style and cabin decor. Starting with warm, earthy neutrals to the dark tones and blending all the way into pretty pastels. You don’t have to stop with color however, there are plenty of patterns available in berber as well.
Color, thickness, design, plus a variety of grades – once you’ve decided on Berber – are other choices to be made. And, if you’re decorating a basement area in cabin style, Berber even offers a grade designed to go over concrete floors. Once you’ve chosen your options you’ll be happier with your selection when you discover that Berber is one of the most economical carpets to install as well. Easy to lay, match and seam saves you time and effort with your decorating project, making this cabin rug an excellent choice.
