Protects the floor: Area-rugs can cause scratches to floors. The dust and dirt particles that collect beneath a carpet can easily scratch a floor when it is walked on. Pads under the rugs prevent this from happening.
Area rugs are a great way to show your more adventurous side. Bold and colourful patterns may take you out of your comfort zone, but they are a great piece for adding a bit of the unexpected to a room. Still, you'll want to choose colours that blend with other design elements of your room so that even as a focal point your rug ties in with your overall décor.
Children and pets can have a significant impact on the lifespan of an area rug. When it comes to colours and fabrics, it is of primary importance to consider your lifestyle before choosing a rug. Wool rugs clean easily and patterns can help hide spills, stains, and hair from shedding pets. Alternatively, more delicate fabrics are better suited to more formal living areas.
