When it comes to creating a home that’s stylish and comfortable while also meeting our lifestyle needs, the flooring we choose is an important factor to consider.

Carpets do more than cover your floor, they offer a way to accentuate a room and can complement your soft furnishings and furniture with beautiful colours, tones and patterns.

It pays to keep busy areas hard-wearing and easy to clean with a twist carpet or hard wood floor, but you can add warmth to a room such as a lounge, dining or bedroom with a luxurious deep pile in rich, inviting colours.

Alternatively, enjoy the natural beauty of wood in your home by selecting a durable and timeless hard wood floor. If you’re looking for a low maintenance floor that gives the illusion of different woods and stone effects that will last for years to come, laminate flooring can be both practical and stylish.

Whatever you decide, dressing your floor with stylish rugs can add warmth, colour and interest to a room design. From popular classic Persian designs to ultra-modern geometric prints, a great rug will add character to a room.

A sheepskin or hide rug works well in a home with hard wood floors – and this Cowhide Rug looks great with our Sierra Nevada collection.

Boost the appearance of your hallway with a welcoming rug or runner. Persian rugs such as this Living Treasures rug add a traditional touch to your home – and the quality of design means that they will last a lifetime.

Add a personal touch to guest bedrooms with luxurious and plush rugs which will add warmth and a wonderful, homely feeling. I love this tactile Sheepskin rug for keeping feet nice and toasty in the bedroom – and you can coordinate the look with faux fur throws and cushions for an ultra-cosy design.

Rugs also allow you to separate rooms into living areas such as kitchen diners and you can divide children’s bedrooms into sections with fun character rugs that will liven up their rooms. This Multi Funk Rug will add a splash of bright colour and is perfect for a child’s room.

Alternatively, add a subtle softness to a room with a rug that’s understated in colour and pattern but rich in texture. This Impressions Rug is the perfect mix of modern design and luxurious comfort and fits perfectly with the subtle colour scheme with the Vintage Blush collection.
