An area rug is a common addition to a hard surface floor such as hardwood, laminate, or tile. It can even be laid over wall-to-wall carpet. There are numerous reasons why area rugs are so popular, and yet some people may be uncertain as to whether they should cover up their beautiful floors with a rug.
Perhaps the most obvious reason to have an area rug is for the look of it. Area rugs have a unique way of bringing together all of the elements of a room – for example, they can pull together various colors used in the décor.
But the benefits of area rugs extend far beyond style. If you are not sure if an area rug is right for your space, then read on, to learn how area rugs can actually improve the space.

Binding is typically the easiest and least expensive method of finishing a carpet edge. Binding the edge of a carpet involves wrapping a strip of fabric - which is generally made from either polyester or cotton - around the edge of the carpet and stitching it in place.
Carpet serging is a sewing technique where the edges of a carpet are wrapped with thread in order to prevent unraveling and give it a beautiful, finished look, Serging uses a continuous wrap of yarn, about 3/8ths of an inch wide, around the edge of a rug.
Area Rug Benefits
An area rug will significantly decrease the noise in your space. Not only is carpet quieter to walk on than a hard surface floor, it also absorbs sound from the air. Do you notice that your room has a slight echo? That is because the hard surface floor does not absorb sound in the same way that carpet does. Lay down an area rug and listen to the difference.
It is no secret that carpet is a lot softer than hardwood or tile and most people will agree with the statement that carpet is more comfortable to stand on than is a hard surface. Not only does the carpet feel softer to the touch on your skin, but its softness give sit flexibility, which allows the carpet to absorb some of the impacts of your footstep. This literally takes some if the pressure off your body.
In addition to being softer, carpet is warmer than hard surface flooring. It has a greater insulating value, especially if it has a pad under the rug. This applies throughout the home but is particularly welcomed in basements, where the floor can be downright cold.
