In   addition to that, rugs naturally insulate the cold and help in keeping the   room warm which is particularly helpful in countries with colder climate such   as USA and Canada. Also, rugs reduce the chance of suffering from any   injuries or harm as they are relatively soft and falling on them won’t do   much damage which is the case with normal floors.
