In the world of fantasy and fairy tales, an area rug can be a flying magic carpet that you either ride on to take your princess for a ride or save you when you are trapped in a cave.

Who, in the right mind, wouldn't want to feel comfort under their feet, wearing socks or not? Same as carpets, area rugs gives a nice warm homely comfort that no hard wood floor can replace.

The back of the rug, or the knots, as well as the foundation, need to be protected as best as possible. There are rug pads with holes in them and solid rug pads. In this case, the solid on is best.
