Can You Put Rugs on Vinyl Flooring? Flooring FAQ

If you're looking to add coziness to your space, you may be considering buying a rug. Let LL Flooring guide you to the right rug for your vinyl flooring.

Yes, you can place rugs on vinyl flooring—but some make better choices than others. For instance, rugs with rubber backing can stain vinyl, and abrasive material also risks scuffing your floor. If you wish to decorate your space with rugs, we recommend choosing a soft fabric and adding an anti-slip backing or pad to help keep your rugs in place.

What you'll enjoy about vinyl flooring is tough, so remember that you don't need to lay rugs to prevent scuffs. LL Flooring offers a choice of robust planks that don't require additional protection, although walk-off mats are a great idea to help keep dirt and debris to a minimum. For example, rigid vinyl plank flooring allows you to achieve opulent wood looks with excellent scratch and dent resistance. Discover how vinyl can transform your space with inspiration from our décor experts.
