We all know about redecorating a space with great new wall colors and a new floor-maybe laminate like Pergo or even hard wood. When it is all done and you step back choosing some rugs to dress it up even more can be a lot of fun and really finish the place off. This said, redecorating a room is not the only time for adding a rug to a space. Sometimes mistakes happen that result in a floor being damaged. Well I say what better way to fix it than to cover it up with a new rug? It is a lot easier than tearing up the entire floor. It is often a lot cheaper than tearing up the whole thing and less messy. What's more, the finished product ends up looking a lot more exciting too!
Look at it this way. You have a white ceramic floor that gets nicked, much like this photograph. So you can do one of two things:
1)You call a contractor then you have to empty out the entire room, have the floor torn out which creates huge amounts of dust, then you have the new floor put in (and sometimes it has to set for 24 hours before you can walk on it) then you drag all the furniture back in and you are back to umm...what are you back to exactly? The floor will look pretty much the same as it did when this whole thing got started-minus the damage to it, of course.
2)You order a rug-it shows up on your doorstep-you move the furniture to the perimeter of the room-you roll out the rug over the damaged area-you put the furniture back and you watch a movie.
Plus you get the added benefit of having a new rug that looks really stylish and fresh. The fact it covers up a blemish on the floor is an added bonus.
Sure I am a little biased with respect to the whole rug thing, but really step back and think about it. It really does make a lot of sense. If you have any questions or want to share your thoughts hit me up any time...I love reading your comments, questions and all that good stuff.
