Benefits of Area Rugs

Area rugs come in a nearly endless variety of colors, shapes, sizes, textures, materials, patterns and more, so it’s guaranteed that you will find one to work perfectly in any location in your home. There are many benefits to area rugs versus wall-to-wall carpeting, such as:


The primary benefit of an area rug is the protection it provides to flooring underneath. If you have hardwood flooring or natural stone tile, area rugs will protect these finishes from the wear and tear of heavy foot traffic or moving furniture. Area rugs are also ideal for hallways and entryways, helping to protect your flooring from dirt and debris that is tracked in from outside.


In addition to protecting a flooring investment, area rugs are a great way to add style and comfort to a room. As mentioned above, there is an area rug to fit any interior décor style, and since area rugs are so easy to switch out, you can select a bold design without a long-term commitment.


While a high-end area rug can be quite costly, it is still a cost-effective way to bring luxury fibers into your home without investing in wall-to-wall carpeting. Area rugs in wool or cotton are a great way to bring a natural element into your home for a fraction of the cost.

Selecting an Area Rug

When selecting an area rug, it’s important to consider many factors. Ask these questions when shopping for an area rug:

  • What is the interior design style of the room?
  • Does this room get heavy foot traffic?
  • Is the room a casual space that will be used for lounging or a formal space for occasional entertaining?
  • How much area does the rug need to cover and what is the budget for the rug?

Once you’ve determined your style, price point, and primary use for the rug, the shopping can be fun! Contact our team at Floor Coverings International Spring Branch for all your flooring needs. We’ll come to you with our mobile showroom for a free in-home design consultation.
