Area rugs have often been considered strictly an ornamental aspect of your home, much like other pieces of interior decor. However, to view them in this light only is leaving off a major characteristic of theirs, and we think you should know about it.

Area rugs offer so much

Of course, you can certainly use area rugs to simply complement your home’s interior decor. Some of these rugs are nothing short of art, simply in being placed in a certain room. However, there are more reasons to choose them, as they serve a variety of purposes. If placed in specific areas, these rugs can help to catch and hold onto dirt and debris that might otherwise make its way onto your floors. That can cause small scratches that, over time, really add up to a lot of wear and tear. The rugs can also catch dampness from rain and snow and can protect against the damage that comes from repeated contact with water. More than that, they can even be a safety feature by preventing slips and falls caused by the same dampness that can potentially cause harm to your flooring.

Finally, they are protective as well, when placed between heavy furniture legs and your flooring. Those heavy pieces can cause indentations, even in carpet, and can create an eyesore if you should decide to move anything. Area rugs can withstand a great deal of the weight without allowing it to be distributed directly into the flooring underneath. For carpet, especially, this can mean the difference between a flooring that reaches its lifespan potential or not. With all the amazing benefits of these rugs, you simply can't afford to not check them out.
