Top 3 Spaces to Place an Area Rug


An area rug is a common accessory to a hard surface floor, such as hardwood, tile, or laminate flooring. Not only can they protect your floor from common wear and tear, but they can also breathe warmth and life into a room. But the question remains: where should I put my area rug? Read on to discover optimal areas and how to make the most of your rug.


High-Traffic Areas


Entryways, hallways, and living rooms are high-traffic areas where flooring is truly put to the test. Constantly under foot, these spaces are more prone to scratches and other damage. Ease the wear and tear of these areas with a rug! This keeps your floor in great condition while also maintaining the style of the space.


Under Tables, Sofas, and Chairs


Take a look at the floor underneath your dining set. Do you see any scratches? If the answer is yes, you might benefit from putting an area rug underneath! Moving heavy furniture can create scratches in your floor and having to move that furniture regularly will take a serious toll. An area rug will provide a protective barrier between heavy furniture and your beautiful floors.


In the Bedroom


We love a good hardwood floor in the bedroom, but we can’t deny it: an area rug is a key ingredient to creating a cohesive look in your room. We suggest a large area rug in the center of the room to bring warmth into your bedroom. Plus, it’s a great feeling to step onto a warm rug on a cold morning.
