How Using Area Rugs Can Help Your Family

Aside from adding a splash of color to your bedroom or living room or hallway, a vintage area rug offers many other great benefits:

Benefit #1: Hide That Annoying Stain

For anyone with kids or pets or if there are family members who seem to be a bit accident prone, protecting against stains and spills can be a top priority. An area rug may be just the solution that you are looking for and can be much more affordable than expensive stain treatments and replacing carpet in stained areas.

Benefit #2: Add Warmth

Area rugs provide an added layer of insulation and can actually help keep your home warmer for longer and helps keep your floors warm in the winter months. In fact, carpets and rugs offer as much as 10 times the heat retention and insulation as hardwood flooring, thus reducing your heating bill and creating a cozy, warm place to enjoy time with friends and family.

Benefit #3: Room Makeover

Adding in a vintage area rug or two can be a quick and easy way to add new life to a room. It is surprising to many homeowners when they see just how much better a new rug can make a room look. A simple rug can make a space look like a whole new room and for a fraction of the price of a room remodel or makeover.

Benefit #4: Keep Kids Safe

For a home with little ones learning to walk and toddlers running around all the time, a secure added vintage area rug can be a blessing. It protects little heads and knees and bottoms from the falls that come with learning to walk and adds a cushion to the lives of toddlers who are prone for trips and falls as they play and explore.

How to Make Your Vintage Area Rugs Last Longer

The beauty that comes from a vintage area rug can add a wonderful finishing touch to any roof of your home. But how do you take care of your rug and keep it looking its best year after year?  Here are some things to keep in mind:

Take off Your Shoes

Many homeowners have taken this one to heart for the simple fact that it helps keep not just you rugs but your entire home cleaner. Set up an area on the porch or sun room where you can leave your shoes when you come in and out throughout the day.

This keeps dirt, oil, mud, and other debris from getting into your home and ground into your area rugs and carpets. If you are not fond of this strategy, then be sure to place wa high-end foot mat at the doorway and clean it regularly.

Provide an Underlay

An underlay is a layer of soft cushion that is used under the area rug. An underlay helps to prevent the flattening out of an area rug. It also helps add softness to the rug so it feels better to walk on. An underlay has the added benefit of keeping the vintage area rug in place so it doesn’t slide on the floor, aid in noise, and keeps the rug warm during cool winter months.

Vacuum and Clean on a Regular Basis

Depending on the size of the rug, you may be able to take up the rug and wash it. Some materials need to be dry-cleaned in order to protect the fabric. You may also need to go with a light surface cleaning and spot cleaning for large rugs that are too bulky to pick up and wash. Keeping your vintage area rug clean is the final way you can protect your investment and keep it looking great for years to come.
