The Benefits of Carpets and Rugs

Posted in Tips & Trends

Since floor coverings are our passion here at Colony Rug, we want to make sure that you also realize and appreciate the importance of high-quality carpets and rugs for your home. According to The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), these are the top five benefits of floor coverings like carpets and rugs.

  1. Warmth and comfort – Carpets provide a number of advantages including energy conservation, thermal resistance and the ability to retain warm air for long periods of time in cooler climates. It’s also a comfortable foundation for work and play!
  2. Beauty and style – Carpets and rugs are available in countless colors, patterns, styles, sizes and textures. From calm and neutral to bold and vibrant, they allow you to express yourself unlike many other home décor elements.
  3. Softens slips and falls – The soft cushioning prevents dangerous slips and falls, dramatically reducing the likelihood of injuries. This is especially beneficial to children and elderly family members.
  4. Noise reduction – The noise and commotion caused by technology can make a home uncomfortable. But carpets and rugs can help to absorb and reduce the sounds of TVs, computers, and music.
  5. Long-lasting – A high-quality carpet or rug will last for many years when it is cleaned and maintained properly.

For more information about adding all of these benefits to your home with a beautifully crafted carpet or rug, call Colony Rug today at 800-458-4445.
