Choosing the perfect rug for your home has never been easier thanks to the huge variety of budget priced rugs in all styles available online. The perfect rug can add not only warmth underfoot but a splash of colour and style to any room in your home, from the hallway to the kitchen.
Rugs come in a variety of shapes, styles and colours, so whichever one you choose, make sure it not only fits your personality but is also practical for the room it is intended. For the kitchen, durable polypropylene rugs are a great choice as they’re washable and easy to clean so ideal for areas where a lot of spillage and mess occurs.
When choosing the perfect rug for your hallway, consider that it will be one of the first things a visitor to your home sees. Runners come in a variety of shades, from bright brick red or fuchsia to calm neutrals such as beige and chocolate brown. Dark shades or patterned runners are often better for high traffic areas such as the hallway as they will hide muddy footprints, and choosing a durable material that is easy to wash will ensure that your runner stays looking as good as new.
The perfect rug for your living room is something which complements the existing style. If your room is bright and contemporary, decorated in neutral shades, you could add a large, shaggy neutral rug or sheepskin rug for superior warmth underfoot and a classic look. Alternatively, add a brightly coloured rug in an unusual shape – rugs don’t have to be rectangular, so consider a round rug in bright mauve, royal blue or lime green and tie the look together with cushions and candles in the same shade.
When choosing the perfect rug, it’s as important to think about how it feels underfoot and how easy it will be to maintain as it is to consider how it looks. Soft, deep-pile rugs are best for bedrooms, whereas smaller, short-pile rugs that are easy to wash are the best option for children’s rooms; little grubby fingers won’t stand a chance. Don’t forget that rugs can look great in bathrooms too, but remember to fit slip-proof backing to avoid nasty accidents. Choose shades of cream, white or aqua for a light and fresh feel.
The perfect rug really is a matter of personal taste, but by shopping around you are sure to find a beautiful cheap rug which will add style and warmth to your home.
