Color Options for Jute Rugs

The Jute plant is often known as the golden fiber for its lovely yellow-gold hue. The exact shade depends on the location where the plant was grown, making every Jute rug unique. We offer rugs in a variety of colors, to bring out the highlights of any room. For a contemporary eclectic look, we have color combinations woven and hand-knotted for strength and durability. For a clean, minimalist look, choose a solid, natural tone, or use a brighter, more intricate design to liven things up. Many of our Jute rugs come in neutral tones, so you can rely on them to be a timeless and versatile addition to any space.

Caring for Jute Rugs

Today's busy families have no time for furnishings that require extensive care and maintenance. Jute rugs blend perfectly with demanding schedules, because they typically only require regular vacuuming. Alternatively, dirt and dust can be removed periodically with a traditional rug beater. Wet spills clean up quickly without any rubbing - simply absorb the moisture with a clean cloth or paper towel, then allow to air dry. When necessary, you can clean up small spots with mild detergent and a damp cloth. For heavier soil, professional carpet cleaning is recommended to keep your Jute rugs looking great. Note that the natural fibers will retain their good looks longer when kept away from too much direct sun.

Tips for Choosing Jute Rugs

When selecting your Jute rug, first consider the size of the space where you plan to place it. Do you want a smaller rug to bring a subtle elegance to a single area, or will you rely on it as floor covering for an entire room? Our Jute rugs are available in a variety of sizes, from 2' x 3' - just right for a soft spot in your kitchen, bathroom or bedside - to 9' x 13' to fill the whole floor. Rectangular runners at 2' 6" x 7' 6" will dress up ordinary hallways, and 7' 9" rounds are just right in the center of a living or dining room.

Jute rugs are known for their soft feel, which means you can count on comfort when you choose Jute for your living room or bedroom. Several types of weave give you choices in texture, depending on the look you would like to achieve. Finishing touches like borders and backings will ensure a piece that sparks compliments from your guests.

Where can't you use Jute rugs? The list is quite short. Keep them inside, because they are not designed to withstand the elements. They thrive in dry conditions, so your rug will last longer if you place away from excessive moisture and humidity. Though Jute is known for its durability, you can ensure enduring beauty by placing your rugs in low or moderately trafficked areas.

At ModernCollections.com, we have a variety of Jute rugs to add the perfect finishing touches to your modern decor. See our selection in our virtual showroom, and save when you order online, thanks to free shipping.
