How to Choose a Rug

05/01/2018

Choosing the best living room rug for your home can be a difficult decision. Most people have no idea what to look for, what’s best suited to their room and whether it is efficient or not. The style, size, colour, and weave of the rug are all important factors to consider when buying a new rug for your home. We’ve therefore put together some tips to help you pick the perfect rug for your living space:

1) The best fibres – it’s important when choosing a rug that you consider the technical aspect and what is going to work best. If you have a lot of traffic in your living room (such as family members, guests, and pets) you’ll want to invest in a rug that retracts to its normal state after being stood on and also one that doesn’t stain or absorb substances easily.

2) What is the rug for? It’s important to take into account all the reasons why you wish to invest in a new rug – is it to unify the room? To add warmth to a room? Or is it just to bring a splash of colour to your decor? When it comes to a living room rug it needs to be balanced – meaning the rug will need to be centralised and have an equal amount of non-carpet to carpeted floor space. If you want to unify your living room, placing the rug in the centre of the room, with furniture either on top or around the rug can make your room appear bigger than it actually is.

3) What’s your style? Finding a trend or style that you love is key as rugs can be expensive, if bought at a high quality, and can be a long-lasting feature in a home. Researching current trends and designs will help to give you inspiration and ideas as well as allow you to plan out where and how the rug will be placed.

At Coldbath we have a range of rugs in all sizes and colours and our friendly team are happy to help you choose the right one for your home. To find out more, call us today on 01423 313241 or visit our Harrogate store.

Whether you want contemporary or traditional natural wood floors, the latest in vinyl technologies or carpets made from some of the finest wool and wool mixes in natural and modern patterned styles, Coldbath Flooring has something for everyone.

We also supply the latest soft feel man made, stain resistant carpets, along with some very hard wearing carpets for office and industry.

Expert fitting from skilled flooring technicians

At Coldbath Flooring, we recognise that the quality of the carpet, flooring or vinyl is only as good as the fitting and laying service that accompanies it. This is why we employ some of the most experienced and conscientious fitters in the area. Our fitters are trained across our full portfolio, so whether you are choosing carpet, plant fibre (Sisal and Sea Grass), vinyl, wood or laminate, they have the skills to complete the installation to the highest quality standards.man-img

As part of our service, we are not only happy to move your furniture before and after the fitting process, but we can also remove your old carpet or flooring and dispose of it at a registered waste site. Please ask for further information.
