    HOW TO CHOOSE A RUG THAT IS SUITABLE FOR EVERY SEASON

    A rug ties all the elements of a room together while creating an anchor point for your space. Making it the perfect addition to enhance your interiors throughout every season. To help you choose a rug that will become a timeless statement within your home all year round, we’ve pulled together our top tips to think about when you go rug shopping.

    UNDERSTAND YOUR MATERIALS 

    When looking for the perfect all-season rug, we recommend choosing a piece crafted from natural materials such as jute, linen or wool. These materials are highly durable and breathable. An important element to consider when choosing between materials is where the rug will be placed within your home. For example, if it’s in the dining room then you will need a material that is easy to clean and more durable.

    SELECTING A SIZE

    The next step is to select the right size rug for your space. A quick tip to remember here is that the edges of your rug should just exceed the furniture it is placed on, while also leaving some of the floor visible. Take a peek at our rug placement guide on our journal here for extra advice on choosing the best size rug.

    COLOUR AND PATTERN 

    As the seasons change so do our interiors, that’s why it’s so important to choose a rug with a colour and pattern that can evolve with your personal style over time. We recommend choosing a rug with natural tones and textures that will suit your space and give you the freedom to redecorate if you wish.
