Why you need area rugs
Saturday, August 13, 2022 12:55 PM
If you haven’t realized it yet, area rugs are trending hot this year and are expected to last indefinitely. They might be small, but they make a big, bold design statement.
What is an area rug?
An area rug doesn't extend to the walls but takes up a large portion of the floor. They're used for both form + function; they often have the same benefits as broadloom.
These mats come in assorted fibers, colors, and textures. They can be stock or specialty and are handcrafted for different shapes, sizes, and styles.
You can even create one by entering our showroom to look at carpet tiles. Then, create a unique style in a rug plank by putting a few together.
Some reasons to have area rugs in your home:
1. Area rugs accent and highlight. People sometimes ask if they're covering up the natural beauty of a hardwood floor by layering over it. The answer is a resounding "no!"
Choose a color that complements the wood's undertone, and watch it pop! It will also add texture and softness to a room with hard surfaces.
2. They can jazz up a hard or soft surface–or tone it down
