Top 5 Reasons to Bring a Rug Into Your Life

With a rug it is possible to completely change to look and feel of a room. Rugs are also a practical addition for a room. They make it warmer, more inviting and reduce noise. Carpets are not so popular nowadays and many modern homeowners are turning to natural flooring such as wood and tiles. A rug placed strategically on the floor can bring together various elements and break up a dark expanse of wood. Looks are the most obvious reasons but there are a number of others that are far more significant.

Provide Comfort

A rug is a much softer surface than tile or hardwood. Carpets are much more comfortable to stand on and most definitely much softer if you fancy a lie down. The softness of a rug absorbs the impact of your footsteps and is much gentler on any part of your body that comes into contact with it.

Provide Warmth

A rug is much warmer than hard surface flooring. Its insulating value is much greater, especially is the is underlay underneath the rug.

Reduce Noise

Carpeted surfaces are much quieter to walk on the a hard surface floor. A rug will also absorb more sound from the air than a wood or tiled surface. If you’ve already got a hard surface floor, have you noticed the room has a slight echo? You can counteract this by adding a few rugs.

Protect Floors

A rug on your hardwood or tiled floor will protect it against stains, scuffs and spills. It will be particularly beneficial in high-traffic areas. For example, the lounge, hall or kids play room.

Change a Colour Scheme

With the right coloured rug it is possible to immediately change the colour scheme in a room. Have a few different rugs hidden away and you can change the colour scheme at the drop of a hat. Use them to tie in existing colours or to provide contrast or an accent. Think about the feel different colours will bring, if you want to change the atmosphere.
