Benefits of Area Rugs
STYLE: Area rugs are common additions to hard surface flooring – whether it be hardwood, luxury vinyl, laminate, or tile. They can even be laid over wall-to-wall carpet as an accent or extra protection in high-traffic areas. A room’s “fifth wall,” the floor, can showcase dramatic area rugs that are so breathtaking in color and design, they’re like works of art. Area rugs can brighten any room in the house, adding immediate color and style to change the feel of a space and bring a room together in minutes by “anchoring” the furniture. You can do an easy and affordable room makeover on your lunch hour.
COMFORT: It’s no secret that carpet is a lot softer than hardwood or tile, and most people will agree with the statement that carpet is more comfortable to stand on than a hard surface floor. Not only does the carpet feel softer to the touch on your skin, but its softness gives it flexibility, which allows the carpet to absorb some of the impacts of your footsteps. This literally takes some of the pressure off your body.
WARMTH: In addition to being softer, carpet is warmer than hard surface flooring. It has a greater insulating value, especially if it has a pad under the rug. This applies throughout the home but is particularly welcomed in basements, where the floor can be downright cold.
NOISE REDUCTION: An area rug will significantly decrease the noise in your space. Not only is carpet quieter to walk on than a hard surface floor, but it also absorbs sound from the air. Do you notice that your room has a slight echo? That is because the hard surface floor does not absorb sound in the same way that carpet does. Lay down an area rug, and listen to the difference.
