An area rug is a common addition to a hard surface floor such as hardwood, laminate, or tile. Perhaps the most obvious reason to have an area rug is for the look of it.

Similarly, do rug pads damage hardwood floors? Unlike many imported plastic pads, a natural rubber rug pad will never stain or discolor hardwood floors.
