6 Top Benefits of Using Area Rugs

April 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

Area rugs are as essential as furniture, as important as the centre table, as artistic as the painting on the wall and as beautiful as the chandelier in the centre of the room. A good rug can save your floor from damaging, act as a cushion for the legs of your furniture, become a decorative piece or simply downplay the floor or highlight your furniture in the room. There are countless benefits of this piece of accessory. Learn the top 6 benefits of using an rug in your home.

• Area rugs add beauty to the room they are used in. They are an easy and a great way to add your personal touch to your room. With a multitude of designs, colors, textures and origins being available, you can pick what you love. The rug adds to the character of the room, induces warmth, creates depth and personalizes it.

• Rugs bring comfort to rooms. A soft rug on the hard floor beneath your feet will make you more comfortable. It feels nice and cozy, making you want to unwind and relax. Who would not love to sit on the rug and sip coffee on a rainy day or get warmed up in front of the fireplace on a chilling night?

• Area rugs are versatile, playing many roles for your room. You can add a rug as a focal point in a room, binding all the elements together. It can help you underplay the floor or highlight the furniture. A single, ornate rug in the centre of the room is as good as a beautiful centerpiece. And any time if you wish to change the look and move around your furniture and other accessories, the rug can also move and create a new something for your room. If a rug is too beautiful or too ornate or too expensive to be on the floor, it can always be on the wall.

• Rugs make the room safe. Rugs can make the floor more stable and reduce the chances of slipping. When used in high traffic zones, a rug protects the floor and reduces slipping. It can be used under heavy furniture or chairs and other furniture which is required to be moved around. In the kitchen and the bathroom, a washable rug is a great idea to prevent slippage due to wet floors. It is good to invest in area rugs if you have kids or old people in your house. However, do remember, anchor the area rug to the floor wherever required, to reduce the chances of the rug slipping.

• Rugs help reduce the sound. We all know that fabric absorbs sound. Use a nice, thick rug in rooms with televisions, stereos or home theaters. The rug will also reduce the noise between floors of a building.

• Rugs protect the floor. The floor beneath the area rugs is clean and free of wear and tear. So if you want to preserve the life of your marble or hardwood floor, buy a rug for the high traffic areas and the most commonly used areas.

These are to name a few. Surely, this must convince you to buy a rug today.
