While the sleek and modern look of hardwood or tile may be aesthetically pleasing, most of us want more comfort underfoot in our own homes. Area rugs are a simple yet practical way to soften up hard-surface flooring such as hardwood, laminate, vinyl, or ceramic. Your local flooring team at Floor Coverings International East Lake carries a wide selection for you to choose from. Let’s go through some of the benefits area rugs offer.
Area rugs come in an endless variety of textures, colors, sizes, and shapes, which you can customize to fit the interior of your own home. Soft, neutral wool rugs bring luxurious style to any bedroom, while intricate and durable nylon rugs can make a bold statement in a living room. Popular trends are embracing bright colors and unique patterns. However, the benefit of an area rug is that you can easily swap and replace without the hassle of a reflooring project. While loud décor might be well suited for spring and summer, you can choose a more subdued and warmer rug when the winter months roll around.
The durability of a single area rug will depend on the fiber and style you choose. Busy households with children or pets should opt for something more resilient such as a natural fiber or stain-resistant variety. A well-maintained area rug that you choose with your lifestyle in mind can last you years to come. Furthermore, area rugs will make your flooring more durable, too. By covering high-traffic areas such as the living room, underneath a dining table, hallway, or bedroom, you will protect your floors from scratches and scuffs through the years. Area rugs and stair runners prevent planks and tiles from becoming worn out or weak, adding value to your home by prolonging the lifespan of your flooring.
