Area rugs offer a number of distinct advantages. A simple, yet genius invention, these transportable pieces of carpet can be used to decorate and insulate without the commitment to wall-to-wall carpet installation. We encourage you to read on to learn more about area rugs, and consider adding one to your Hillsborough home.
Area Rug Benefits
Perfect for the Indecisive—Wall-to-wall carpet is a substantial investment and it can be difficult to choose a style and variety that you’ll love for years to come. Area rugs offer a perfect solution, and achieve the style you’re looking for without the long-term commitment. Perhaps you’ve always been interested in patterned carpet but you’re unsure if you’ll grow tired of it in a few years. Selecting a patterned area rug is a great way to test the waters, or a great alternative altogether. Similarly, maybe you have children who are looking for a bright colored bedroom or playroom, but you know that they’ll eventually grow out of the styles they’re interested in now. An area rug will ensure future design versatility.
Provides Necessary Insulation—Just like wall-to-wall carpet, area rugs offer insulation, which is particularly useful during the fall and winter months. Area rugs can be placed and removed according to the season and provide warmth in rooms finished with hardwood, laminate, or ceramic tile flooring.
Offers the Best of Both Worlds—Hard surface flooring such as hardwood, laminate, and tile offer advantages in terms of durability and style. The addition of area rugs atop these surfaces cures the downsides of hard surface flooring—namely a cold underfoot and a lack of forgiveness when it comes to drops and falls.
Overall, area rugs are a perfect way to warm up a space, from an aesthetic and temperature standpoint. Here at Floor Coverings International Hillsborough we offer a number of area rug options, including solid and patterned finishes, and a wide range of materials. We proudly serve the greater Hillsborough, Flemington, Princeton areas and offer free consultations. Call us today!
