When placed under the legs of heavy furniture, custom area rugs can provide a different kind of protection. For instance, it can save your floors from becoming dented or crushed, and extend their lifespan for that reason alone. If, at some point, you decide to move that heavy furniture, you’ll have fewer signs in your flooring that they were ever moved.
Specially designed area rugs can also decrease the effects of repeated traffic across your flooring. In the case of hardwood floors, they can help to maintain the shine with less wearing, and for carpets, they can decrease the amount of crushing that happens to the fibers. Overall, your flooring will last longer and look better, and who doesn’t want that?
