Buying A Silk Rug

Silk rugs are a popular choice for their beauty, quality, softness, and investment value. They are made with high-quality natural silk fibres that give them a shiny, smooth texture and a brilliant sheen. Additionally, they are incredibly soft to the touch, making them ideal for areas where people will be sitting or walking barefoot. High-quality silk rugs are hand-woven by skilled artisans, which can make them valuable investments that appreciate in value over time. 

When decorating with silk rugs, it's important to choose the right size and colour scheme that complements your existing decor. Layering a smaller silk rug over a larger wool or jute rug can create a cozy, textured look. Furniture can also be used to highlight the beauty of a silk rug by placing a coffee table or dining table on top of it to draw attention and create a focal point in the room. Proper care is necessary to keep silk rugs looking their best, including cleaning spills immediately and avoiding high-traffic areas and direct sunlight. Overall, a silk rug can add a touch of elegance and luxury to any home decor with the right size, colour scheme, and placement.
