Area rugs can help draw together the perfect design theme for a room. They’re one of the most versatile pieces of flooring available. They can come in all types of shapes and sizes. You might want a small area rug with your teams favorite logo, or maybe a checkered rug with non-slip backing placed in the center of your kitchen. Area rugs will provide your home with great utility—almost any role you need them to fill, they can.
Arguably the greatest role of area rugs is their ability to enhance the flooring you already have installed. This is a point we touched on earlier, but area rugs can make a stunning statement placed correctly in a room (and we’re not just talking about the bear rug your Grandfather keeps in front of the fireplace). Experiment with area rugs in your home and you’ll see what we’re talking about. Whether you’re looking to make a bold statement or relying on an area rug to help balance a design scheme, all of this is possible and more.
Area rugs can also be used to protect the floors in your home. For instance, if you have hardwood flooring it is strongly suggested that you place area rugs down in high traffic areas. This will greatly extend the life of your flooring by blunting the impact of repeated footsteps. It will also make them easier to clean since the area rugs will trap the incoming dirt and dust, preventing these intruders from scarring your floors. Smart area rug placement can lead to better design and healthier floors
