One of the most simple but effective ways to brighten up a room is to add a rug to it. With the sheer variety of sizes and styles it can get confusing and make it far more difficult than it needs to be to make a decision.

We've put together this handy guide to help make that decision easier.

Many may use these to act as a means of a divider, or providing further protection to the carpet when placing heavy tables upon it.

We have a vast selection of rugs crafted from polypropylene, polyester and more to create our hard-wearing and luxurious rugs in a wide selection of colours, styles and designs to suit your individual styles and needs.

When considering buying a rug one of the most important things to consider is the placement and function of that rug, as that can affect the choice in which one makes when selecting a rug. Alongside the consideration of the required size, and the style of the room to fit in with the rug.

A kitchen can be further embellished with a rug made of flat woven rug that lacks any deep pile as to maximise on hygiene and ease of cleanliness as it is far easier to clean up any spills or such.

Equally, these flat woven rugs allow for greater use in the office beneath a chair as they do not get caught on a deep pile, nor pattern of the rugs. We do also offer a range of rugs that are specifically designed with children in mind, made primarily of a flat weave so that it is easy to clean and easy to maintain amongst play.

Rugs come in all manner of shapes and sizes, with a wide selection of our rugs available in differing sizes to suit all manner of rooms no matter what their requirements are. Depending on the size of the rug used you can affect the appearance of the room's size, by using a smaller rug that acts as a runner in a hallway it gives the illusion of a far larger space, yet if you were to use a rug that filled the width it could give a smaller look to the room. Larger rugs can be better suited to larger rooms, acting as a feature beneath a table or to break up the flooring, making for a lovely accent on a hardwood floor whilst also providing additional warmth come the winter. These larger rugs can also be used for separating sections of a room, which is great for studio flats, breaking up the dining area, lounge, or possibly bedroom into its own sections.

Others may have an already exceptionally well-adorned room in which a patterned rug may look too much, instead choosing a solid colour to add an unobtrusive dash of colour to a room. If you choose to mix patterns and styles in a room, a unified colour between them gives a seamless look between then.

Another factor that needs to be kept in mind is the amount of foot traffic that the area will be getting, if you have a rug near an outside door, it may be worth-while investing in a darker rug that could hide any surface dirt rather than marring that of a far lighter rug that would immediately draw attention to such.
