About Area Rugs

Available in a wide range of colors, patterns, styles, materials, shapes, and sizes, there is an area rug to match every home. Whether you prefer a classic, traditional look with oriental or Persian rugs or lean towards modern and contemporary designs featuring abstract patterns, geometric shapes, or bold colors, there's a rug for every taste. Neutral-toned rugs can seamlessly blend into any decor, while vibrant or patterned rugs can become focal points, adding character and visual interest to your space. Area rugs can help define a space within your home. Placing an area rug under a dining table or in a seating arrangement can anchor the furniture and define the purpose of each area. They provide warmth and comfort underfoot, making them ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, and other areas where you want a cozy atmosphere. Placing a rug in high-traffic areas can help preserve the underlying flooring, preventing scratches and wear. In homes with hard surfaces like hardwood or tile, rugs act as a sound absorber, reducing echoes and noise levels. Area rugs can be crafted from a variety of natural and synthetic fibers, such as wool, cotton, nylon, or polyester. No matter your style or lifestyle, you will find the perfect area rug for you.

Area Rug Pads

You need a rug pad!

Is there a rug somewhere in your home that always bunches up or slides around when you step on it? The solution is simple. Get a rug pad!

A rug pad will help your rug stay in place and keep it safe. Rug pads also create additional space and comfortable padding beneath a rug so that the flooring underneath stays clean. The thicker the cushion on your rug pad, the more comfort and protection you gain!


Basic rug pads are made from slip-resistant webbed material and keep your rug from sliding around when you step on it. You can order a rug pad as a roll and cut it to size or order a pre-cut pad in the specific size you need.

Premium felt or polyester-blend pads are coated to help them stick to the floor, offering extra protection against movement. They also help to prevent scratches under the rug and add a superior amount of comfortable padding.

Both types of rug pads can be used together, but you should definitely have at least one under every rug in your home. Shop our vast collection of rug pads to find the right one for you!

Area Rug Care

The beauty and life of your area rugs depend on how you care for it. Follow a proper cleaning routine to keep it looking great over time. A few easy steps can extend the life of your area rugs.

Like carpet, area rugs need to be cleaned regularly. Make sure you have a good vacuum and use it to pick up dust and dirt. Clean up spills immediately when they happen to help prevent stains. Have your rugs professionally cleaned every few years. And, as with any flooring product, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for maintenance suggestions and cleaning products.

If you spill something on a rug, treat it as though you would on carpet. Clean it up right away. Use a dry, clean cloth to pick up any solids and soak up as much liquid as possible. Rinse the area with warm water and blot it up with a cloth. After the area has dried, you can pass a vacuum over it to help restore it to its original appearance. If you have questions or concerns about stains, your local Floor Store can recommend cleaning products and professionals.
