Rugs over Carpet
Are you debating over whether or not to put a new rug or carpeting in a room in your home? There are a few factors to take into consideration when choosing between the two. It comes down to more than the size when choosing between purchasing a new rug and laying carpet.
Some might assume that the term "area rug" means that a rug is designated to cover smaller areas. However, there are extra-large rugs which are able to cover entire rooms. The primary difference between rugs and carpet is that a rug helps to better distinguish a room and accent the wood flooring below.
Most carpets today are made with synthetics. While this provides a cheaper floor covering to choose from, it also comes with a number of disadvantages. Synthetics wear faster; they can cause health issues and are even flammable. So while synthetic carpeting might be inexpensive, there are a number of cons to consider.
Many rugs today are still hand-woven. Wool rugs are one of the most durable floor coverings available and they are considered to be hypoallergenic. If you want to have your hardwood flooring somewhat exposed, a rug provides you with this opportunity.
Rugs are a much more beneficial floor covering to use in your home compared to carpet. With a wide selection of rugs to choose from, let The Rugs Warehouse provide you with the ideal rug for your home.
