High traffic area - rug over hardwood?

ajc9May 12, 2012

Hello all!

We moved into our home last year. We chose Bella cera hickory hardwood flooring for our kitchen, dining, office and back hallway...

I love it. My question is whether I should put a rug down over our highest traffic area - between the sink and the island. I wipe it down daily...we use our kitchen heavily!

Will it preserve it or not make much difference? Perhaps a novice question bc the answer seems like it definitely will...I guess I'd rather not lay a rug or rugs down in that area but wonder if I should?

Any experience?

I would not as the gain will be minimal. If you have a heavily used hardwood area, wear should be evident and it 1 will look the way a heavily used hardwood floor should look.
