The perfect rugs will serve as more than simply coverings for your floors. When shopping for the right rug for your space, consider size, material, pattern and feel. First up, size. Floor rugs can be large enough to almost cover an entire room, similar to a fixed carpet, or they can be a handy way to create a 'room within a room', such as a dining zone or living zone in an open plan living space. When considering rug materials, consider your lifestyle too. High-traffic areas of the home might be best served by hardwearing natural fibre rugs, such as sisal rugs or jute rugs. The natural texture and rustic finish is perfect for casual, coastal styles, and work with both modern and traditional interiors. For more formal areas, or those which deserve a plush touch underfoot, choose wool rugs that will also add warmth and cosy texture. Solid wool rugs offer a more contemporary feel, while Persian style wool rugs in muted colours are ideal for classic rooms.
