A rug can add warmth, style and interest to a room, helping to reduce wear on the floor while adding another dimension to your interior. They come in a wide variety of styles and materials, not to mention shapes! Choosing the right rug will come down to practicality and budget, taking into account your interior decor. From discrete hallway rugs to luxurious woollen piles, there’s something to suit every home.

These are the ideal shape for hallways and entranceways, making runners that protect your floor from wear and tear. This size rug is also great for filling up a section of an empty floor space, such as in the centre of a living room or in front of the fireplace.
Round rugs make great central features underneath coffee tables and in the centre of rooms. They add depth to angular rooms in more modern houses.
Wool rugs are attractive and durable, withstanding dirt and staining. They usually have a thick pile and are lovely and soft underfoot. Great insulators, they trap heat and help keep your home warm. Wool rugs are also eco-friendly, as they are biodegradable and come from a renewable source.
These rugs are very hard wearing and are great in areas where there is high foot traffic. They provide a casual, rustic look to your home, although they are coarser than natural and synthetic fibre rugs.
Cotton rugs tend to be woven into beautiful and eye-catching patterns that liven up your space. Like wool, cotton is a natural material, ideal for rural and Scandi styles. However, cotton tends to be less durable and often can't be wiped clean, making it less suitable for use in kitchens or dining areas.
These mimic natural fibres such as wool, providing a more affordable alternative. They are extremely durable, and can be found in almost any design. They are a popular choice for many homeowners, but can be more prone to staining than natural materials.
These are oriental and persian in design, featuring intricate patterns in earthy tones and neutral colours. Natural rugs in traditional patterns are often investment and heirloom pieces, designed to last for a lifetime. They are usually a low, thick pile.
Classic in design, floral prints can come in a variety of styles and colours to bring a vibrant, fresh feel to your space.
