Area Rugs and Remnants


Why Area Rugs?

If you have hard floors such as hardwood, luxury vinyl, laminate, natural stone or any one of several other materials, it could be that area rugs will make a great addition to your home. This is especially the case if you have children who often play on the floor. Area rugs will surely make for a warmer environment and provide a soft landing should they accidentally fall.

Area rugs are also a great way to add another layer of design to your already gorgeous floors. They can pull elements together for a more rounded look, and cause colors to complement other designs in the room as well.

However, style and design are not the only benefits to be garnered from the versatility of area rugs. Continue reading to see what they can do for you!

Area Rugs Create a Quiet Atmosphere

Many homes that have solid floors are often incredibly noisy. High traffic, children and pets can amplify sound and become overbearing at times. That’s where an area rug can really help.

You should place them in very specific areas, such as foyers, play areas and paths of high traffic, as they can drastically reduce the amount of noise. Area rugs actually absorb sound right from the air, and can cut down on echoes in the room as well.


Area Rugs Are Comfortable

Comfort is one of the main reasons so many homeowners choose carpet. It’s warmer underfoot, cushions the impact of footfall, feels soft and luxurious against your skin and creates a flexible walking surface.

Area rugs can do the same thing at a fraction of the cost. Why get rid of the entirety of your flooring when you only need this type of comfort in certain rooms? Area rugs quickly change the atmosphere in children’s rooms, living rooms and bedrooms, yet you don’t have to do a complete remodel to attain it.

Area Rugs Are Better for Allergy Sufferers

It might seem like the exact opposite, but area rugs can actually help relieve allergy symptoms. For years, those with allergies were instructed to remove all carpeting, so allergens would have nowhere to lodge.

However, in cases where the flooring is solid throughout the home, area rugs can actually be beneficial for the same reason. Dust mops often propel allergens into the air where they are then breathed in. If you have area rugs that catch the allergens, they stay trapped until you clean them, thus alleviating many of the allergies in the process.
