Extend the life of your rug, keep rug in place and protect your floors
A beautiful area rug or runner can transform a room or outdoor living space instantly. Whether you have an existing area rug or just purchased one from our selection of indoor and outdoor area rugs in The Orvis Rug Boutique, you’ve probably already considered a rug pad for cushioned comfort. Here are the main compelling reasons why the purchase of a quality rug pad will help protect your rug investment.
A premium rug pad will:
1. Extend the life of your rug and protect your floors.
A rug pad acts as a protective barrier between your rug and the hard floor. When dirt gets underneath your rug, it can wear on the fibers and cause them to fray prematurely. Being walked on as well as the weight of furniture on a rug can also wear on fibers. Some rugs have a rough backing which may scratch a floor over time. A quality rug pad prevents premature wear on both rug and floor.
2. Keep your rug in place, keep your feet grounded.
Not only does a quality rug pad improve the look and feel of a rug, it will keep the rug in place with a non-slip backing made specifically for indoor or outdoor use. The cushioning on a rug pad evens out base rough surfaces like tile or stone, keeping your rug looking beautiful without bunching and movement.
3. Help with housekeeping; keep the peace.
Extra padding for your area rug actually acts as added insulation and noise reduction for high traffick areas. A quality rug pad also makes rug care easier; an airflow between rug and pad helps the vacuum get those dust particles that would otherwise settle into the rug. And if you have an outdoor area rug, consider that an outdoor rug pad can help your rug dry out faster than if it’s sitting on a wet surface.
A rug pad is a valuable investment for your area rug, indoors or out. It’s an easy solution to keeping rugs in place, laying smooth and flat, and to help them look good for years to come. Here at Orvis, we carry a variety of rug pads to fit the needs of your distinctive living space. Browse the Orvis Rug Boutique for a selection of rug pads today!
