Flat weave rugs are not only durable and stain resistant but they have a natural look similar to sisal, which looks great in conservatories and orangeries. Across Europe, these styles of rugs are increasingly popular due to the prevalence of underfloor heating and hard wood floors.
Choosing a natural rug for your conservatory or orangery ensures that you will be purchasing a durable, stain resistant rug which also looks stylish and complements the room. Basketweave designs are stunning and come in a range of natural neutrals, from sage green to chocolate brown, but bear in mind that lighter natural rugs will show stains and marks more easily. Generally made from polypropylene, basket weave rugs are hardwearing and will last for years to come, with most being suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, giving the beautiful appearance of seagrass.
Flat weave polypropylene rugs have the appearance of sisal or seagrass whilst being low profile, and so ideal in spaces where your children play, such as the conservatory. They’re also ideal for high traffic areas such as the hallway or kitchen. A stunning foliage patterned terracotta rug will add warmth to what is traditionally one of the coldest areas of your home. If you’re using your conservatory in the winter months, adding one or more rugs can help you to keep warm and give the room a cosy feel that is hard to beat. Bright colours will also help to warm up a chilly space, so why not choose brick red or lime green for a shot of vibrancy.
Natural foliage patterned rugs look great in a room such as the conservatory, as they help to bring the feel of the outdoors in. Whether you choose pale, pastel shades such as mint green or baby blue, or go for natural colours such as beige and light coffee hues, these rugs will complement the feel of your conservatory perfectly, for a stylish and cosy feel.
Complement your choice of natural rugs with woven wicker furniture for a relaxed feel and summery appeal. In winter, when conservatory floors can become particularly cold and uncomfortable to walk on, snuggle down with matching wool throws and light some scented candles, enjoying the warmth provided underfoot by your new natural rugs.
Choosing natural look rugs for your conservatory is easy, but remember to fit anti-slip backing if your conservatory has laminate or wood flooring to prevent accidents happening.
