Wood Rug – Spruce up your floors!

A wood rug on the floor can add lots of charm to home and office interiors. It is an ideal alternative to hardwood flooring, especially in a tropical country like India. Hardwood flooring sure looks elegant, rustic and all, but it comes with its own woes for the homeowner. For one, wooden flooring is expensive and needs a lot of maintenance. Wooden flooring is prone to damage in humid conditions and in the presence of termites.

If you are the kind of homeowner who likes to change things as seasons change, why not opt for a wood rug or a wooden carpet instead of hardwood flooring.
