Area rugs can serve many purposes in homes across Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR. They can be decorative centerpieces for a room’s decor, or they can be used to soften hard-surface flooring, such as hardwood, laminate, or ceramic tile. Oftentimes these purposes are combined, which make area rugs versatile flooring tools. At Floor Coverings International Vancouver/Portland, we carry a diverse selection of area rugs, making it possible to find the perfect match for any style.
Softening Hard Surfaces
While hard-surface flooring offers many advantages, both in durability and in looks, it can also be cold underfoot and uncomfortable to stand on for long periods of time. Adding an area rug on top of these hard floors provides comfort for your feet and relief for your joints. Many homeowners in Vancouver and Portland are strategic in their rug placements. Common areas include in front of the kitchen and bathroom sink, under the dining table, and other areas you and your family frequent. Area rugs can warm up the space both visually and physically. An area rug can add a splash of color or an interesting pattern to a simple space, creating a soft and warm feel underfoot that also completes the look of the room.
Protecting Your Floors
In addition to protecting your body from hard surfaces, area rugs can also protect your floors. Placing rugs in entryways, hallways, or in the center of the living room can prevent damage in places where your floors experience heavy foot traffic. This is especially beneficial if you have softer hardwoods or tiles that are more prone to dents, scratches, and chips. Area rugs are also helpful in children’s rooms or play areas where they can protect both your child and your floors from the other’s potential damage.
At Floor Coverings International Vancouver/Portland, we carry all the leading brands, including Shaw, Kathy Ireland, and many more. If you’re ready to start searching for the perfect area rug to complete your home’s look, give us a call. We offer free design consultations where you can see and feel the different samples in the comfort of your own home among your own decor. Contact us to schedule yours today!
