If you have a hard surface for a floor, you might use an area rug to offer some comfort to your feet. Or maybe you use area rugs to help tie in all the design elements of your home. Whatever the reason, area rugs are something you should continue to use because they offer a lot more than just style and comfort. Here are a few reasons you should use area rugs in your home:
- Add Comfort to Your Floor- Your feet probably tend to start hurting after a while on hard floors, so why not give them a break by adding area rugs? Depending on the area rug you choose, they can be soft and act as a cushion to your sore feet, not to mention they are heavenly to lay down and relax on. Area rugs also absorb the impact from your footsteps; this means the shock isn’t absorbed through you. Area rugs can help take the pressure of walking off your body.
- Move with You and in Every Room- Area rugs are not permanent like carpet, and if you were to move, they can move with you. Another benefit of area rugs is that they can work in any room of your home. The standard rule is the larger the furniture in the room, the larger the rug underneath should be.
- Increase Safety- Did you know area rugs increase safety in the home? Hardwood, laminate or vinyl floors can be slippery and are known to cause slips and falls that can lead to painful injuries. Hard flooring is especially dangerous to little babies just learning to walk. Adding an area rug can help cushion footsteps, reduce slipping and sliding, and provide a softer place to land if falls do happen. Area rugs also provide a safe place on the floor to teach babies to walk.
