Warm up your space with an area rug

Hardwood and laminate flooring has many benefits, but it can leave the room feeling cold. Here is why adding a rug will improve your space.

Warmth

Adding a rug can help to save on heating costs due to its ability to stop cool air rising from the gaps between the flooring. Wool and nylon are the best materials, as they will not only make your room warmer but also your bare feet.

Noise

Anyone who lives in a flat or apartment knows that noise travels, particularly from upstairs. By adding area rugs, you are helping to cancel out excessive noise whilst reducing the echoes in your space. Look for excellent quality. You don’t always have to spend a lot to get a good rug, but in certain cases having lots of money can help you to get the rug you want.

Comfort

Wood and laminate certainly look good, but they are not always comfortable. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you may have felt discomfort after spending a long time on your feet. Even if you have splashed out on waterproof laminate flooring from a specialist such as https://www.woodfloorwarehouse.co.uk/laminate-flooring/waterproof.html, you may still benefit from a rug. You will have to be careful in an area with potential water spills, of course, but a rug can be a lifesaver for your feet.

Those with younger children or pets may also find a rug helps their comfort, especially when getting down on the floor to play.
