Rug or No Rug?
My home office has carpet, so this question doesn’t pertain to me. Personally, if I had hardwood in my office, I’d look into a large rug to place under the desk which extends in front of the desk. The reason for this is I like to work in bare feet and the cold hardwood floor isn’t so comfortable. I also think a rug adds a nice design touch.
