Edgar Allan Poe was once quoted saying that a rug is the soul of the apartment. And if Poe had a rug, you should too.
But despite the famous author's affinity for warm fibers under his feet, there are plenty of other reasons why you should consider getting a beautiful rug for your home.
1. Define Your Space
As any other part of your home decor, a rug can be a wonderful way to express yourself in your home. Rugs are perfect for defining spaces and cornering off sections of the room that are reserved solely for relaxing and conversing.
Rugs are notorious for creating an ambiance that is warm and inviting, so your guests will be instantly drawn to get cozy when they are visiting.
Not to mention rugs can certainly affect moods as your feet will be happier stepping on a soft cloud than cold hardwood floors.
2. Breathe Easy
Did you know that rugs can serve as air filters?
"Gravity causes common household particles, such as dust, pollen and pet and insect dander, to fall to the floor. Carpet traps particles, removing them from the breathing zone and reducing their circulation in the air. " (source)
Those suffering from allergies will be grateful to hear it, as dust particles are the most common source of allergens in the home. Rugs are said to reduce airborne dust particles as much as eight times comparing to the home without a rug. (source)
3. Relax and Stay Safe
Depending on the type of rug you choose it can have therapeutic qualities for your feet: think of it as a gentle massage perfect for your toes after a day of walking on hard surfaces.
Rugs also create non-slip surfaces that are safe for pets, children and the elderly, providing a space where the risk of falling is significantly minimized.
4. Reduce Echo and Noise
Having a rug in your living space can help absorb any ambient noise and reduce echo which helps your space feel homey and inviting. There is a lot to say about spaces that foster productivity and create positive emotions, so make sure that your home is a harmonious space that reduces stress instead of adds to it.
5. Cover Up Imperfections
Have a stain on your floor that is an eye sore? Or is the thin rug of your apartment worn out in one spot that you'd rather not see? Cover it with a beautiful rug and turn something unpleasant into your favorite hang out spot at home.
