High traffic area - rug over hardwood?

Posted by ajc9 (My Page) on

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.
