How to Choose Carpets and Rugs

What makes a room?

There could be one of many or a combination of many answers to this. Some would say the paintwork or wallpaper, others the furniture and some would even say the people or family in the room.  Some people though will say “the floor.”

The floor is a major surface of any room, it makes no difference how big or small the space may be, the floor is an important element and depending on what you do or even don’t do with it the floor can either make a room fantastic or make it dull and lifeless, the choice is yours.

Experts in interior design will tell you there three things you need to consider when choosing a carpet, mat or rug.

Colour, Comfort and Texture


It is important to choose the right colour that fits in with your overall décor and there are a few tricks to getting this right.

  •         If you really cannot decide on a colour a neutral colour will always be safe
  •         In hardwearing areas choose a colour that will be forgiving with heavy traffic
  •         Natural colours will always bring out nature and create a nice neutral room space
  •         Kids rooms you can go wild but think about things like spills and crayons that may not come out on a light colour


Perhaps the most important element of a carpet for some people and choose the level of pile or event material is important and getting this balanced with wear and tear, traffic and what the room is used for make a difference. Deep piles are often warmer but with young children and pets they can be difficult to keep clean,  what may be soft may not be practical.


Wool is the ultimate for carpets but it can be expensive but man-made fibres are more affordable. Man-made fibres are also strong, long-lasting and easy to clean.
