Ugly Floors? These Showstopping Rugs Will Make Them Disappear
Other than painting a room, a large rug is one of the easiest ways to completely transform a space. It can add texture to an already-completed room or mask an unsightly floor almost entirely. Rooms with dark floors can be brightened up with a light rug, while bright-and-airy rooms can be layered with a colourful rug. So how do you choose the best rug for your space? It all starts with identifying the perfect size for your needs.
The material, price, and colour are also important considerations: Do you need a rug that's hard-wearing for pets or small children? Do you want something that's extra soft underfoot for a bedroom? Are you looking to make a bright statement or create a neutral base? Once you've narrowed down your needs, it's time to get shopping. To make the decision a little easier, we handpicked the best rugs that are suited for all budgets, styles, and sizes.
