Area rugs transform your home

They can be small compared to your home’s flooring, but they pack a powerful design punch. Area rugs are often seen layered over many types of flooring, from hardwood to tile to wall to wall carpet, and we’re going to help you find the perfect one for you.

WCW Carpet Warehouse has, for over 30 years, been the premier full-service flooring warehouse in Vermont and adjacent states. We carry a full product line for both residential and commercial use. As an area rug retailer, we not only carry a wide assortment of colors and patterns, but we enable you to make your own with our rug binding department. We're the "go-to" place when it comes to shopping for area rugs in Bennington, VT.

The benefits of area rugs

From a style point of view, they can be layered over carpet to brighten a neutral surface or tone down a boldly patterned one. They highlight and accent the primary colors and undertones of another surface, such as a wood or tile floor. They divide and separate spaces.

If you have a worn rug that you can't bear to dispose of for sentimental reasons, take it to our rug binding department where it will be cut, shaped, and made into a scatter rug. Also, they eliminate noise because fabric absorbs echos and vibrations, as well as provides softness and warmth.

Contrary to a persistent myth, carpet provides health benefits to those with allergies and asthma. Rugs also improve indoor air quality. Numerous studies have shown that the fibers trap allergens, as opposed to letting them circulate in the air.

Choosing your area rugs

One of the biggest mistakes people make is to select one that's too small. Ideally, it should fit over all key furniture, extending about 18 inches. If the rug can't fit under the furniture entirely, it's fine to "anchor" it under the front legs.

In a dining room, the rug should fit under both the table and the chairs. It should fit, even when the chairs are pulled out. Rugs can seem to disappear entirely under a bed, so try two runners on each side instead.
