Top 5 Reasons To Refresh With A Rug
This year, cross several items off your decorating to-do list all at once with a quality, durable rug. Rugs are the magic marker of design. They can pull a room together, anchor the eye, or act as the pop of color you need to update your space. They can also cover unsightly stains and provide a more comfortable surface to make family time a little more special. Check out these five great reasons to refresh any space with a rug!
1. Rejuvenate A Space
If you’ve ever looked at a room and asked yourself “What’s missing?” a rug could be your answer. Maybe you have a neutral-tone space that feels a bit drab – spice it up with a printed rug or something with a subtle pop of color. Have the opposite problem? A solid rug or one with very small embellishment can anchor an otherwise disorganized room.
2. Protect Your Floors
Whether you rent or own, making sure your flooring lasts is key. A rug can help prevent scratches or stains that would otherwise mar your hardwood floors or carpet. Rug maintenance is oftentimes much easier and quicker than deep cleaning your carpet, so it can save you time and stress in the long run.
3. Bring Your Style To
Many rugs have the capability to be used indoors or out, so you can bring some extra style and flair to your porch, deck or patio. Rugs crafted of durable polypropylene material come with many perks like being weather- and stain-resistant and even resist fading so they retain their vibrancy season after season – and they come in a fantastic selection of prints, colors and designs to fit any décor.
4. Stop Dirt In Its Tracks
We’ve all seen the aftermath of what a snow day or rainstorm can do to our entryways, mudrooms and even family room or kitchen. Water and mud get tracked across floors and wet shoes and coats get strewn about. Prevent this mess from becoming permanent by utilizing a hard-wearing, mess-resistant rug that stops dirt and grime in its tracks. A rug crafted of heavy-duty weather resistant material with a rubber backing prevents slippage will stand up to hard messes.
5. Comfort, Comfort, Comfort
If you have hardwood floors or carpet that’s lost its plush feel, adding a rug is a great way to revitalize your space as well as cushion your feet. A high pile is great for a bedroom while a low pile is better for areas with heavy foot traffic. Bringing a fresh and cushy carpet into your space can make your down time or family nights a little cozier and comfier.
