Benefits of Area Rugs

Area rugs have many benefits in addition to style and comfort. Here are some top reasons to invest in an area rug.

Flooring Protection

Flooring materials such as hardwood or natural stone can be a big investment. Area rugs provide protection for high-end flooring in high traffic areas. They are also ideal in hallways and entryways to limit the amount of dirt and debris tracked into the home from outside.

In addition to protecting valuable flooring, area rugs can be a great way to cover up flooring that is worn or dated. Consider layering a rug over an old carpet, or hide unsightly vinyl and laminate flooring with a colorful, patterned rug.

Style and Variety

Area rugs come in an endless variety of colors, fibers, textures and sizes. There is truly a rug to fit any room and décor. And, since the rug is not installed, you can switch it out easily for another style. Area rugs are also a great way to bring luxury natural fibers into your home without spending a great deal on wall-to-wall carpeting. Consider a rug in wool, cotton or jute.


While some area rugs can be very costly, rugs in basic colors, fibers and sizes can be an affordable way to bring comfort and style into any room.

Getting Started

It’s important to ask yourself a few questions before shopping for an area rug.

  • Where will the rug be used? Is the room primarily for lounging, or more for formal entertainment?
  • What is the budget for the rug? Are natural fibers important, or is price the top consideration?
  • What is the interior design style of the room and what rug will best compliment that décor?
  • How big does the rug need to be, and are there any irregularities in the room shape that will impact rug placement?
