Are you looking to give your home a facelift? Do you have old tired carpet or tiles that are just too expensive to change?

Ever thought about a rug?

A rug can be one of the cheapest and best ways to finish off a room and in turn a home. They can bring warmth, literally, and also to the eye with bold colours and patterns.

Some things to consider when choosing a rug for your home-

Don’t just choose a rug because you like it. Think of your lifestyle, do you have bests or children? How much foot traffic in that space will there be? Will it be in direct sunlight? A good quality rug with the right care can last a very long time.

When considering the size of rug for your living space, many decorators recommend that big is better. You either buy a rug that is large enough to place all the furniture on the rug or to place the sofas around the rug with a coffee table in the middle. You can use rugs to define different living spaces in the one open plan living area.

For your rug to add to the style and feel of the room think about the artwork, and other furnishings. Can you look for colours in your rug to complement or to balance the existing furnishings? Traditional Oriental or persian rugs give a classic look while the more plain and natural fibres give a contemporary feel.
