When You Need a Durable Rug that’s More than Carpeting

Rugs that look like hardwood floors come in several design styles and sizes. Those made with bamboo slats are the most familiar. They’re a combination of hardwood slats with a rug look.

There are area rugs that are designed to simulate the look of hardwood. These can be a little trickier to find. You’ll see several featured below.

Contrary to standard decorating protocol, you can put carpet over an area rug. You can read more about that decorating choice here.

Bamboo area rugs are ideal for heavy traffic areas or a room with a tropical design, a porch, a patio, or a large entry mat for pets. If you’re not into actual carpet material, consider bamboo.

When installing an entire hardwood floor isn’t possible, you can also opt for a Bamboo Area Rug over carpet in a well-designed space. Put one under a coffee table in a living or family room when you need something to give your carpeted area a more modern, sleek look.

Carpets that Look Like Hardwood

The reverse is true when using a rug that looks like wood. You can also put a Bamboo Rug over an original hardwood floor. You’re getting the appearance of hardwood over hardwood when, in fact, the floor covering is a rug. When continuity of décor is essential, use this technique.

Whether a bamboo rug that looks like hardwood or an actual carpet, both are lovely ways to insert creative design into a room without breaking the bank.

  1. Interesting choice for people who want hard wood floors look, but cannot change what they have (i.e., renters). You always find the most interesting products, Barbara.
