When it comes time to decorate your new place a clean slate can be so exciting. Picking an area rug that pulls your entire room together is an important part of this process. Rugs can be great for your overall look but also come with several benefits. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider getting an area rug for your new home.
We all know winters can get chilly. Tile and hardwood specifically can get particularly cold during the winter months. As much as we all love a good pair of fuzzy socks an area rug is an amazing way to keep your toes nice and warm. Rugs are also soft to the touch so they are the most comfortable flooring to walk on year-round.
Often your carpet or rug will be the first thing guests notice in a room. Rugs are often are what ties a room together. Area rugs are an exceptional way to add a splash of color and texture to your regularly bare floor. We offer a large selection of colors, shapes, patterns, and materials. Our huge variety makes it easy to find the perfect fit for any room in your house. Add a pop of color to your home or blend it all together with a more mellow tone.
Floors can easily become slippery which quickly becomes a safety hazard especially when you have small children running around. A great way to avoid this is to add runners to hallways and stairs. Kitchen and bathroom mats are also a great addition to any home in an effort to avoid slips and falls. When adding rugs to your home make sure you are always placing liners under your rugs to keep them in place.
Rugs are a great way to muffle sounds. In busy households, it is not uncommon for sound to travel from room to room. A rug will help prevent banging noises on your floor, which may be heard in the rooms below. It also decreases the echos in larger more open rooms.
To Hide Imperfections
If your flooring is older it may have a few imperfections from wear over the years. Using rugs is a great way to hide those imperfections and make your floors look classy.
These are only a few of the benefits of purchasing an area rug. It is a great way to change up your space, add some variety or just upgrade your comfort.
