Can rugs really finish off your new decor?

cot3937natchoDecorating is a really exciting job to do around the house and when it is finished there is a great feeling of satisfaction. Most people start by choosing the predominant colour and painting or wallpapering the walls. Curtains are a big outlay so they usually come next but what is often forgotten is the floors. Sometimes the fitted carpet has to stay for reasons of cost or there is already a laminate or wooden floor, but there is no need to compromise. By adding some inexpensive rugs you can finish off your room perfectly and round off your look without spending a fortune.

If you have done just one room, using rugs to tie other rooms’ decor in with it is a cheap way of achieving a coordinated look without too much trouble. By picking one of the main colours in the newly decorated room and bringing wool rugs through into other spaces, you can really make the whole house look as though it has been decorated too. Traditional rugs have a big part to play here in a reverse fashion – if you bring a traditional rug into a newly modernised room, it ties it in with the rest of the house which might be waiting for its makeover.

You can put the finishing touch to a room by choosing a rug which really underlines the style. By adding a very modern rug to a minimalist interior, you can show that this is the style you are aiming for in no uncertain terms. A shaggy rug will make it clear that this is a room for luxury and relaxation. A rug with a hardwearing flat pile or a natural rug such as raffia or bamboo shows that this is a room where work is done. Rugs are a perfect finish because they are not expensive – in fact you will find cheap rugs on http://www.rugzone.co.uk for under £20 and so you can make a statement in any part of the house for less than the cost of a takeaway!

Successful decorating is largely a matter of knowing when to stop – adding rugs and mixing and matching, especially when you choose cheap rugs, is a great way to have a bit of fun at the end of a long and possibly fairly pricey job and moving them around until you have just what you want to achieve the look you want.

Rugs that give your home natural ambience

New additions to the Encove rug collection will hit the rugzone.co.uk and iwantarug.com websites early in October. The two new ranges are natural look flat weave rugs that are durable and have the natural look of sisal. Flat weave natural rugs are very popular in most of continental Europe mainly because of their widespread use hard flooring and under floor heating. While the rug is an effective dirt barrier that is extremely easy to maintain the thin profile of the flat woven rug also has the benefit of preventing tripping accidents and it allows more heat to dissipate into the room.

Natural Weave:

Available in rugs and carpet runners Natural Weave is woven in a combination of two designs one a simple herringbone and the other a two tone basket weave effect giving a genuine feeling of natural sisal. The flat weave design of the rug means whilst it is extremely thin, it’s also ultra durable making it ideal for areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, conservatories and under dining tables that have heavy chair movement.
Because the surface and backing rug is produced entirely of polypropylene fibre it has the benefit of making the rug totally impervious to rotting in wet areas meaning it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Natural Flair:

A decorative flat woven Wilton rug and runner that is hardwearing and practical in any room in the home. The styling of the rug gives it the look of natural sisal while retaining the inherent stain resistance and durability of polypropylene fibre. Because of the rugs slim profile it is ideally suited to hard floors that have a high degree of foot traffic making it the likely choice for kitchens, halls and conservatories.

Both ranges of rugs and runners are available in a combination of small to extra large sizes that include a 67cm x 200cm runner.
