Over the past twenty years, Diablo Carpet and Floor Restoration has noticed a big shift throughout San Ramon, Danville, Pleasanton, Dublin, and Blackhawk communities. Homes have been getting rid of carpet and replacing it with hardwood, laminate, or luxury vinyl tile. These types of flooring are beautiful and can bring a lot of class to home. Many families still consider and often purchase an area rug for a variety of reasons. If you are considering purchasing an area rug, here are some factors that lead many to buy one:
Feeling of Warmth
Historically, carpet has always felt and been a warmer form of flooring. It has brought a sense of calm and comfort to many when they enter a carpeted area. Similarly, many families long for this feeling. An area rug can bring some of the warmth that a traditional carpeted area has.
Many hard floorings have a very monotone look to them or they can seem expansive in a big room. An area rug brings a level of décor and distinction. It breaks apart a room and can add an accent décor to the whole room and home.
Similar to carpeted rooms, an area rug can have a cushioning effect. Hardwood surfaces tend to have sound bounce off of them in a more dramatic fashion. Thus, an area rug can shield the sound and provide a buffer. This results in a quieter environment through the use of area rugs.
Carpets can often capture various allergens which would normally float around the room. In a hardwood area, these allergens would not have anything to grapple to. An area rug provides such an outlet. Allergens would get drawn to the area rugs and so long as they are cleaned regularly, they can provide a good filter and limit the allergic reactions as a result of your home
