Get the 411 on Houston Area Rugs
Are you on the fence about purchasing an area rug for your Houston home or business? If so, we have a number of good reasons in favor of area rugs:
- They offer a soft, warm place for bare feet to land after walking on hard, cool surface floors.
- They add vibrant colors and patterns to a room that may lack it, and they’re also good for tying a room together from an interior design perspective.
- They reduce the noise of foot traffic and objects being moved across floors.
- They lessen the amount of damage done to hardwood, laminate, tile, and other flooring surfaces.
We could go on, but you get the idea. Another factor to consider when comparing area rugs to larger rugs or wall-to-wall carpeting is that they’re easier to transport and clean. Tired of seeing your area rug in the same old place? No problem—simply move it wherever you like, whenever you like! Notice a sizable stain or spill? No sweat—area rugs can easily be washed by hand, and they can even rolled up in the backseat of your car and taken to a professional rug cleaning service if need be!
Choose the Right Sized Area Rug
Much like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, find the Houston area rug that isn’t too big or too small, but is just right for the space. Get a rug that’s too small, and you’ll find that it makes the room also appear small. If the rug is too big, then you run the risk of having it dominate the room. Before you begin shopping for rugs, make sure to measure the room so a) that the rug is centered and b) there’s an equal amount of distance between the rug and all four sides of the room.
A Houston Area Rug with Personality
Acquiring an area rug serves as a great opportunity to add a bit of pizzazz to your living or working space. Many rugs are so rich in color and pattern that they are practically works of art suited for framing. Not sure where to start? We suggest browsing area rug collections online to see which options appeal to you, as well as consulting with an interior designer or a rug expert.
Protecting Your Area Rug
To keep rugs from slipping and sliding, as well as provide an added layer of comfort, area rug purchases should be accompanied by a rug pad. Rug pads are far from being a frivolous or optional purchase—in addition to the benefits already mentioned, they keep your hardwood floors from being nicked and scraped by rug drag, as well as protect your rug from rips and tears from said dragging.
