Why Get an Area Rug?

While there are many reasons to choose area rugs, it all comes down to beauty and protection for your floors. These two factors can actually be at work simultaneously depending on how you’re using your rug. Choose one rug for a major focal point in an entryway or spread them throughout your home for protection that runs all the way through. Both will look to serve your specific purposes, and there’s no wrong way to use an area rug. We’re sure you’ll find amazing ways to use your own.

Area rug care & maintenance

As with carpet, you'll need to establish a care and maintenance routine for your area rugs if you want to keep them looking vibrant and feeling plush for many years to come.

What area rugs can do for you

If you have any heavy furniture pieces in your home, chances are area rugs would serve you well. These pieces can often leave great dents in hard surface flooring, or crush carpet, creating damage that’s a hassle to deal with. With area rugs in place under those pieces you are much less likely to see damage.

Area rugs come in plenty of colors, designs, patterns, fabrics, and bindings to choose from, so you’re more than likely to find a rug to match your existing décor.

Placing a large area rug in an entryway is a great way to welcome guests while trapping & holding dirt & debris that would otherwise be dispersed to damage flooring throughout your home. This debris can scratch hard surface flooring & dull carpeting.

For cleaning purposes, area rugs can easily be moved or transported to a professional service. Either way, they can be cleaned and replaced with ease.
