What you can expect from your area rugs

There are many reasons to consider placing area rugs in your home. You’ve probably considered it long before now, but if this is your first time contemplating the process, we’d like to help. These pieces are amazing with regard to both appearance and protection of your home and the benefits quickly add up. For instance, they add an excellent softness to hard surface flooring, which is perfect for children’s rooms. But they also add amazing character in spaces where decor is your most important attribute. Your own reasons for seeking these out may be different, so let’s keep looking into this product line.

For those who prefer only the very best when it comes to decor, area rugs give you a plethora of options. Choose from any size, shape, color, or fiber to create a look that is as unique as you are. Using one large rug can add a true depth of character as well as a perfect focal point, while a few smaller rugs can make a drab room far more interesting.

One of the great benefits of area rugs is the fact that they can be removed from your home for cleaning or repair. That way, you don’t have to work around someone else’s schedule. You can simply have your rug picked up, or drop it off, and then pick it back up once it’s finished. This “mobility” feature is also great for those who like to move things around, to change your look every once in a while. Moving your rug from one room to another is a great way to create whole new looks anywhere you like without spending a penny.

Other benefits you’ll find in area rugs include added warmth in any room it placed, protection of your currently flooring from dirt, debris or pressure (when used beneath heavy furniture), and a wonderfully peaceful environment thanks to increased noise reduction.

Read on to see what you need to know before purchasing new area rugs in Philadelphia

Why Invest in Area Rugs?

Large area rugs can be somewhat costly, particularly if you choose those from high-end designers or those made from premium materials like wool. Still, they are well-worth the investment, because they can completely transform your home, whether they are featured in the living room, dining room, bedrooms, or hallways.
  • Protect hard flooring from heavy furniture – If your home primarily features hard flooring like vinyl, hardwood, or laminate, then you may be concerned about scratches on the floor’s surface from large couches, beds, and other pieces of furniture. Placing these items on an area rug can eliminate the worry of scratches and keep furniture from sliding around.
  • Create a focal point within any room – The area rug might be the first design feature you pick out for any room, because it can set the tone for the room’s colors and style. Alternatively, you might spot the perfect area rug to tie the room together after you have selected furniture, window treatments, and other details.
  • Add warmth and sound absorption – When there is no carpeting in a home, it can feel like an echo chamber. Area rugs can absorb some sound as well as create warmth, so you can comfortably walk around barefoot.
  • Separate spaces within an open floor plan – In a home with an open floor plan, it may be necessary to create visual separation of each distinct space. An area rug can create a centerpiece for a seating area or serve as a boundary between rooms when there is no wall to divide the spaces.

What Should You Look for in an Area Rug?

Along with the style and materials you want, you will want to look for an area rug in the appropriate shape and size. Rectangular rugs are more traditional and common, but circular, square, and other geometric shaped rugs can add a unique twist on classic style or fit into irregularly shaped rooms. The size of the room will be a critical determining factor for your purchase, because area rugs come in a wide range of sizes. In addition, larger rugs will be costlier, so you should not pay for more rug than you need in a given space.
