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.
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.
