Little Known Ways to Use Cheap Rugs

There are many choices when it comes to purchasing cheap rugs either online or at brick-and-mortar stores. Unfortunately, some of them may not look cheap, but may be cheap in terms of the quality of the work, or the quality of the materials. There are ways to use these cheap floor covering and few people ever consider these uses.

You can use them as wall hangings. In fact, you can purchase several of them and stitch them together and hang them on the wall – creating a huge wall hanging that actually has a tapestry effect. Because they won’t be walked in, the quality of the materials or construction won’t matter at all. The beauty of them is all that will matter. You can even use several smaller rugs to create groupings that will look great on the wall.

Thinner rugs can be used as covering for furniture in many cases. Sitting on a rug doesn’t offer as much wear and tear as walking on it, and this is ideal for covering furniture. If it is large enough, there is no sewing required. A soft throw rug can also work quite well as covering for furniture.

Children’s areas are ideal. You won’t have to worry about spills or stains and although children can be rough on floors, if they are used in areas where the children won’t be moving around much, they will last a very long time. They work well in teenager’s bedrooms as well.

They can be used on glass shelves quite nicely. They can also be used on solid shelves, such as wood shelves. They not only add to the overall decoration of the shelf, but can also protect the shelf from dust. Although they will have to be washed occasionally, you won’t have to dust those shelves as often.
