It’s been fascinating to watch how flooring trends have changed in the US over the last couple of decades. In the 1980’s and even 1990’s, carpet was by far the most popular type of flooring in homes. Homeowners believed that it was more comfortable to walk on, that it did a better job of insulating their home, and that it looked better and was more valuable than other types of flooring. Fast forward to today and my oh my have things changed. Far and away the most popular type of flooring today is hardwood flooring. Homeowners today, like those of the past, believe it looks much better than carpet, but they also like it because it lasts much longer and it’s much easier to clean. Hardwood floors don’t have to be replaced nearly as often as carpet, and they’re certainly easier to clean when you spill something on them.
It’s the popularity of hardwood floors that’s driving a corresponding surge in the popularity of modern rugs. Homeowners with hardwood floors still want to have some decoration on their floors, and they don’t want their entire home covered in cold wood. Thus, they put down modern area rugs in certain rooms to help spice things up and to help break their room apart. For example, if you have a big open room that leads right into the kitchen, putting an area rug in one corner along with a couch and TV is a great way of showing that that area is the living room. It helps break the home apart into pieces while still maintaining the open feel.
Unfortunately, due to the popularity of area rugs in cities across the country, including Denver, it’s now fairly difficult to find a great Denver rugs store. The primary problem is that there are simply too many stores to choose from. If you were to Google “rugs store” and you were in Denver, you’d get dozens and dozens of results on your first try. With so many options to choose from, it’s hard to know which stores are offering the best prices, the best products, and the highest quality of customer service to their customers.
This is why it’s so important to know what you’re looking for and how to find out if specific stores have those things. The three things that you should be looking for are that they have a lot of options for you to choose from, that they have representatives who will answer your questions, and that they have rugs that are going to last for a very long time. But how do you know if a particular store has those three things? The easiest way is to just visit each store and speak with them in person, but not everyone has time for that. Thus, just use the resources at your disposal, namely the Internet. Read through reviews, check out their websites, and see what people are saying about them on social media. If you don’t have time for any of that, then make Lolo Rugs and Gifts your first stop.
