Adding area rugs to your home is a simple way to warm up the room. If you have hardwood floor throughout your home or any other hard surface flooring, you know how cold it can get on your feet. By adding a few area rugs to the room, you will be able to better insulate the home, ultimately saving you on heating costs as well.

2. Comfort

Not only are area rugs warm on your feet, but they are comfortable as can be. Through adding area rugs throughout your home, you will no longer have to worry about the need for socks to keep your feet warm. Area rugs do not only feel more comfortable on your feet, but they make the room look cozy and inviting. For maximum comfort, look for a thicker rug made of wool or cotton. 

3. Noise Barrier

Area rugs act as a noise barrier and will reduce echoes that your home may create with hard surface floors. They do this by absorbing the sound of walking on the floor as well as the other various sounds from the air. If you are often worried about being quiet in order to not wake someone up or worried about disturbing those in the apartment next to you, adding area rugs to your home are a great, affordable solution.

4. Aesthetic

Adding area rugs to a room are great because there are so many different options to choose from that will fit with your style. If you are looking for that last, final touch to really complete a room, an area rug may be exactly what you are looking for. Stop by a local carpet outlet to take a look at the multitude of sizes, colors, and styles that come with area rugs. 

5. Safety

If you have small children living in your home, area rugs are a great addition if you are looking to better protect them against harsh falls on hard surface flooring. Area rugs can also protect your hardwood floors from things such as animal claw marks, furniture nicks, or other possible scratches.
