Many people choose to buy rugs due to their practicality. For example, your hallway or back door can often be prone to dirty footprints that can quickly ruin carpets, and by having a rug, you can help protect your floors. Other people love how rugs make your floors feel warmer, and some are so luxurious and comfortable that you’ll want to sit or lie on them. Large rugs are often used to add interest and colour to bigger rooms that feel too bare and airy.

With so many sizes and styles to choose from, you should find ample opportunities to add a rug to any room. You can choose between square, round, rectangular, Persian, novelty, outdoor, non-slip, bamboo, sheepskin, and shaggy rugs in a variety of subtle and bold colours and patterns. You can also select your preferred material depending on what you wish to use your rug for.

During the winter months, it’s lovely to have a fluffy rug next to your bed to prevent your feet from feeling cold when you get up. Rugs are also ideal for bathrooms and toilets as they not only help to keep the floor warmer but can also prevent water damage and slips.

What is an area rug?

An area rug is a large floor covering typically used to define and anchor a specific area within a room. They cover a particular portion of the floor and introduce style, comfort, and functionality to the space. An area rug will help create a sense of organisation and separation, which is especially beneficial in larger rooms. Aside from the aesthetic enhancement an area rug will offer, they’re also great for protecting flooring from scratches, stains, and wear, which is common in heavy foot traffic areas.
 

Where to put rug in bedroom?

The optimum placement for a rug in a bedroom depends on the size and layout of the room, as well as your personal preferences and intended aesthetic.
Under the bed: A large rug under the bed can create a cosy and visually appealing focal point. Ensure that the rug extends out the sides and foot of the bed for a comforting soft surface when you get out of bed.
Along the bed: A small rug can be placed alongside the bed to add warmth, comfort, and texture, as well as add a personalised touch.
Centred in the room: If you have the space, placing a rug in the centre of the room and away from the bed can define a separate seating or lounging area within your room.
 

Where to place a rug in living room?

The best placement for a rug in the living room will depend on your available space, the rooms layout, as well as your intended aesthetic. Ideally, opt for a rug large enough to define the space while allowing for comfortable movement around the furniture.
Centred under furniture: Anchor your living room and create a cohesive look by placing the rug in the centre of the seating area, with the furniture arranged on or around it.
Front legs on the rug: Define your seating area while still showcasing the flooring around the room by having the front legs of furniture, such as the sofa or chairs, positioned slightly back from the edge of the rug.
Partial coverage: Draw attention to specific areas of your living room, such as a coffee table or a fireplace, by placing a small rug under or in front of it, creating a designated focal point within your space.
