- Entry and Exit Mats
- Throw and Area Rugs
- Furniture Padding
Entry and Exit Mats
Mats designed for entryways and exit ways come in different styles and textures. The main goal is to create a safe crossing ensuring that your shoes will be kept dry, mud and dirt-free, and cleaned before stepping on a wood floor. This will protect your wood floor from any future stains and damage altogether.
Throw and Area Rugs
Placing throw rugs or area rugs around the house is not only a fun way of decorating your home, but it offers full protection of your wood floors. Place them under your dining table, couch, bed, hallway, near your nightstand, etc. According to The Spruce, area rugs should be centered in the room and cover high traffic areas.
To keep your wood flooring safe from heavy furniture, invest in furniture pads. You won’t want to skip on furniture pads according to the Huffington Post. "When you sit down on the couch, if it's not on a rug, it's going to slide a little and over time that'll make for some obvious aggressive wear right where the foot of the couch is, they make two-inch rubber disks that aren't for the moving of furniture, they actually help to keep the couch from sliding around."
Protect your wood floors with furniture padding, plenty of area and throw rugs, and invest in entry and exit mats for your home.
