In truth, there’s a panoply of reasons why you should get yourself a rug. No matter what room we’re talking about, it will definitely benefit from the simple addition of one of the finest floor embellishments money can buy.
1. Brightening on a budget
Want to give your room a shot in the arm without having to pay out an enormous sum of cash?
You could maybe stick a picture up, or change a light fitting, but for real impact, you can’t get much more effective than a well-chosen rug.
From simple mats to Persian showstoppers, the number of types of rug is nothing short of incredible. Whatever your tastes, you’ll find something to really lift your lounge, pimp your parlour or buff up your bedroom.
You’ll get a total room refresh at a price that won’t leave you floored.
If you’ve got little ones just learning to walk, it can be nerve-wracking watching them taking those uncertain steps. Even carpeting can be a little hard when teetering tots crash headlong into them.
What you and they need is a bit of extra padding, so you can either stick carpet tiles to their knees, elbows and heads, or pop a rug down where they like to try out their moves.
A hard floor can be a delight to behold, but, unless you’ve got Fred Astaire round for drinks and nibbles, you’re not going to be over-enamoured of the clippity clops that shoes on a wooden floor like to bash out.
There’s no denying that carpeting can reduce noise. A rug will douse those decibels so that your house will, mercifully, be more Peace on Earth and less Lord of the Dance.
4. Wooden it be good?
Talking of hard floors, there’s nothing lovelier than a stretch of beautifully polished wood. It makes any room look a million dollars. But when it gets scuffed it can look a little shoddy, and if it’s a busy thoroughfare you’d better believe that some scuffing is going to happen.
Tremble not, timber boards! A suitable rug can protect your tender bits from merciless stomping, at the same time as making you look even better than you did before!
Whether your taste’s tartan or your outlook’s oriental, a rug over a wooden floor looks just right. Like it’s meant to be.
5. Nobody’s perfect
OK, we’ve all got a few blemishes. No need to flaunt them though. If you have a bad hair day and no product will help, you might reach for a piece of helpful headwear to come to your rescue.
That hat can sometimes not just hide the horror. It can really make the outfit.
Think of a rug as just such an indispensable aid. If you’ve got some staining you’d like to keep secret, some private puckering, or any damage you’d like kept on the downlow, a rug will step up and do the trick.
At the same time as making the room look even better than it did before. Nice work, rug!
So, there you have it, rug rationale and matt matters all covered in five points. Now you just need to pick the right one for you.
