Rugs are usually the anchor of a room and it determines what decor style you should go with. However, there are also instances when they don't need to be a part of your aesthetic—after all, there are a lot of other elements you can play up to steer the attention from rug-free floors. Whether you're not into the idea of maintaining carpets or you don't want to go through the trouble of measuring everything, here are some ideas you can try:  

Going rug-free is a great way to showcase high-end hardwood floors or tiles—however, since there is no way to conceal them, it's important to always keep them clean and sparkling!
