Buying Guide

You've finished the decorating, bought the furniture, discovered those charming little accent pieces that add the finishing touches... but something is still missing from your room.

Ever thought about choosing a rug?

Rugs are a great way to add warmth and character to your home - and for giving tired spaces a new lease of life. Whether you want something traditional or modern, plush or practical, natural or synthetic; a rug can add a cosy finishing touch to a décor scheme.

Perfect for adding an accent to either hard or carpeted floors, a home just isn't a home without the touch of softness a rug adds. From bedrooms to hallways, living rooms to terraces; indoors or outdoors we've got you covered with our extensive collection of rugs.

Rug Composition



You'll love the plushness and softness of a natural rug. Designed to bring warmth and cosiness to your home, our natural rugs give you a little something special. Although durable, they can be trickier to clean so it's best to avoid them in potentially messy or damp areas of your home.
Materials you might see in our natural rugs are cotton, wool, jute and sisal. These can sometimes be combined with polyester for a more durable finish.


Ideally suited for high traffic areas of your home, synthetic rugs are an obvious choice for hallways, busy living rooms or outdoors. However, they're also great in kids' playrooms or dining rooms, as they often have shorter pile lengths and are therefore easier to clean.
The shorter pile length and man-made fibres mean synthetic rugs are often more suitable than natural rugs for those who suffer with allergies.
Materials you might see in synthetic rugs are polyester, acrylic, nylon and polypropylene. These may sound very unnatural but rest assured, all of our synthetic rugs are crafted to be healthy and safe for your family - and almost as soft underfoot as natural rugs.

Which size rug for your room?

If you have a large room with a central seating area, why not choose a supersized rug which is large enough for all your furniture to sit on comfortably?

Shop Extra Large Rugs

For a smaller room where furniture is against one or more walls, choose a slightly smaller rug which sits just in from the edges of your chairs.

Shop Large Rugs

If all you want is an accent piece to add a splash of colour or softness underfoot, choose a small rug that's only a little bigger than your coffee table.

Shop Small Rugs

For a large room, make your dining table a focal point by using a large rug, much bigger than the table and chairs to create a 'room within a room' effect.

Shop Extra Large Rugs

If you want to add an accent but still show off a contrast border of your original flooring, choose a rug that lies just a little beyond the backs of your dining chairs.

Shop Large Rugs

For smaller rooms, a large rug can overwhelm. Instead, why not choose one that's only a little bigger than your dining table?

Shop Medium Rugs

Large bedrooms can benefit from a division of space. A large or extra-large rug which goes under your bed and bedside tables can help divide a large room into 'sleeping' and 'dressing' areas.

Shop Extra Large Rugs

Runner or sheepskin rugs can be a great option for a bedroom when placed down each side of the bed. Perfect for warming your toes first thing in the morning!

Shop Runners

If you have space at the end of your bed, this can be a great place for a rug, particularly one with striking colours or textures to add a focal point to your interior design scheme.

Key Words When buying a Rug

Did you know?

There are a few keywords and phrases you'll need to know when browsing for rugs:


Hand-tufted is a method of weaving where yarn is stitched onto a backing and fixed in place by a layer of durable material. Hand-tufted means this process is done wholly, or in part, by hand.


Hand-woven is where part or all of the rug is woven by hand rather than using machinery.


Pile is how thick your rug is. The taller the pile, the plusher the rug.

Heat set

Heat-Set is when polypropylene rugs are heated, they take on the look and feel of wool.

Care & Maintenance

Worried that your new rug seems to be shedding? This is completely normal in the first few weeks. It's a perfectly natural side effect of the manufacturing process - extra threads attach themselves to the rug and fall out over time. It won't affect the colour or texture of your rug in the long term; your best option is to simply hoover them up.
It's important to vacuum your rug regularly to keep it looking in tip top condition. Regular hoovering not only prevents dirt build-up in the rug fibres, helping to keep your home clean and sweet-smelling; but also helps to plump up fibres flattened by footfall.

If your rug is placed in either a high-traffic area of your home, or on that's exposed to sunlight, it's important to remember to turn your rug regularly so you don't end up with uneven wear and fading.

Stains & Cleaning
To avoid permanent damage, any spills must be dealt with as soon as possible:

1. Gently blot as much of the spill as you can with a dry cloth or paper towel. NEVER rub as you will spread the stain deeper into the rug fibres.

2. Apply carpet cleaner to the stain with a cloth or applicator, working from the edge inwards.

3. Remove any excess cleaning product and leave to dry.

4. Hoover. (You might need to do this a few times!)

5. If after a few attempts using this process the stain is still visible, contact a professional carpet cleaner.

If you're placing a rug on a hard surface, such as tiles or wooden floorboards, your rug or door-mat can slip underfoot and cause injury. To prevent this, we recommend rug grips which keep your rug fixed in place safely, without damaging your floor.
