Add A Cosy Feel with a New RugA new rug is a great way to add some cosy warmth to your home without having to redecorate. If you’ve fallen into the trap of decorating your home in neutral shades (very versatile), you’ll know that it can sometimes feel cold. By adding soft furnishings such as cushions, curtains and rugs, you can create a beautiful cosy atmosphere that will make your home feel instantly more welcoming. Take a few moments to read our guide to rugs for all you need to know.
Think About MaterialIt’s important to consider the type of material when shopping for rugs. If the rug is to be used in a high footfall area, such as the hallway or kitchen, or in a room where it may become easily marked, such as a children’s bedroom, then you need a hardwearing, durable and stain resistant rug – polypropylene would be ideal in all these situations.
For a room where comfort is key, such as the living room or bedroom, you want a rug which is soft underfoot. A deep pile rug such as a sheepskin or leather shaggy rug will be luxuriously soft and its deep pile will feel great underfoot. Just bear in mind that rugs like this can be harder to clean – as a rule if you’re concerned about cleaning your rug, opt for a short pile one which will be easy to hoover and maintain.
