Falls do happen, though, and when they do, it's a lot less painful to fall on a soft surface than a hard one. This is helpful when there are children, senior residents, or those with mobility and balance challenges. Helpful hint: Secure your rugs, especially the smaller ones, with rubber grips or pads to keep it in place.
Have you ever noticed that when a room has no rug, it seems to be noisy? That's because soft surfaces absorb sound, so when there's no rug, vibrations bounce off the wall and create echos. It also acts as a cushion between floors so you won't hear footsteps or muffled conversations. This is great in a nursery or in the bedroom of someone who has sleep disturbances or works evening shifts.
Carpet also adds warmth because it's a superior temperature insulator. Our area can sometimes dip into the 20s in winter, so if the room is already warm, a rug will keep it that way, which even saves energy. To learn more about the benefits, visit the Crestview Flooring Inc showroom
