Sisal rugs are unlike most rugs because they are plant-derived and usually lack any pile on their surfaces. The name sisal, in fact, comes from the plant from which their constituent fibers are harvested. Although these rugs are somewhat unconventional, the main benefits of sisal area rugs make them welcome additions to any home.
Since sisal rugs are made from the fibers of a hardy plant, they have high durability. Constant foot traffic and the sliding of chairs won’t damage them and ruin their appearance. You can place them in any area of your home freely without fretting over their condition, including living rooms, beneath dining tables, and right inside entryways. They’re also ideal for households with young children and/or energetic pets that might tear or scratch a more delicate rug.
The light brown or cream color of most sisal rugs works well in conjunction with their woven texture to form a piece that is simple yet interesting, rugged yet refined. By balancing such characteristics, sisal rugs are easy to slot into many décor styles. Perhaps where they shine the most, though, is in rooms grounded by other neutrals. Sisal rugs work well with white, beige, and brown, creating the perfect backdrop to other light or vivid accents in a room.
Sisal rugs’ natural makeup is a preferable attribute for many people for a couple reasons. First, these rugs don’t include artificial chemicals that might cause allergic reactions in some people. Second, sisal fibers are fully biodegradable, meaning that if you ever decide to retire the rug, it won’t contribute to land pollution in any way.
