Rugs to enhance your home

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

There is a wide variety of rugs available to you and if you know what you are looking for and where to look, you can get great quality rugs at fantastic prices. Before you start looking, however, think about the following:

Size – Where are you planning to put your rug? It is important that you have your room measurements so that you know what size of rug you need. Choose something too big and you could end up with curling edges, or your rug half-obscured by furniture; something too small and your rug could be lost in the room.

Budget– Good quality rugs can be expensive, so make sure you know exactly how much you can afford. Unlike carpets, you will not have to pay for fitting, so if you can buy the best-quality rug you can afford, it will give you years of pleasure.

Colours – Do you buy the rug first and then decorate the room or do it the other way round? If you have a specific scheme in mind, you will need to be aware of this when it comes to buying the rug. Traditional rugs can be heavily patterned so you need to make sure that this will fit in with your design.

Safety – Rugs on smooth floors can be dangerous. Heavier rugs are less likely to slip, but you can also buy slip mats (underlays) to put under your rug to ensure that it stays in place.

Whether you are in a modern apartment and you want to use your rug to give a real splash of colour to your living space, or you are re-creating a traditional period look and need a fine silk rug to set off your designs, you can find it here.
