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.
When installing a full 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 it’s a bamboo rug that looks like hardwood or an actual carpet, both are a lovely way to insert creative design into a room without having to break the bank.
