Accent your room's design with an area rug
Functions of Area Rugs
Fox Floors is home to one of the region’s largest selections of area rugs. Area rugs are a popular choice for homes mainly because they are extremely versatile when it comes to room design. They are available in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes (such as small and large area rugs), and they also can provide the focal point for any room. But, did you know that area rugs also have practical uses as well? They protect the floor underneath, absorb sound, and are comfortable and warm underfoot. As a result, area rugs are great for rooms with heavy foot traffic.
Many area rugs are made from natural fibers such as sisal (plant), wool, cotton, and silk. Wool rugs offer strength, durability, and superior stain resistance for homes with heavy foot traffic. Cotton rugs are also useful because they are easy to wash, comfortable underfoot, and relatively inexpensive. Sisal area rugs, on the contrary, are higher-end since they offer offer complex weaves, unique textures and looks, and many colors, all at a variety of price points. Silk rugs, which offer both luxury and style, add high luster to any surface, but they typically are expensive.
Area rugs can also be crafted from nylon, polyester, and olefin, which are types of synthetic fibers. Nylon rugs are long-lasting since they are stain resistant and easy to clean. Polyester rugs, too, are resistant to most stains, and they also offer brilliant colors and a soft feel. Olefin area rugs are affordable, colorfast, and stain resistant, and over time they will not fuzz, pill, or mildew.
