At Read’s of Watton, we are often asked “Why choose a rug?” There are so many reasons, least of all that their versatility, luxury and ability to transform a room.
If you have wooden or hard stone flooring, you know all to well the problem of a noisy house. All sounds are heightened and echo around your room. But for a quick, easy solve, simply choose a rug to soften the acoustics. It will also provide a comfortable, soft feel underfoot to create a cosier atmosphere for your home.
We mentioned before their versatility, but rugs really can transform your home seasonally! If your hard stone flooring leaves you cold in the winter, a woollen rug can provide can provide warmth and colour. Alternatively, a thin, cotton rug will keep you cool and comfortable in summer.
So what kind of rug is ideal for your home? Take a look at our handy guide to finding the perfect rug!
Woollen Rugs: One of the nation’s favourite rugs! Luxurious in both its look and feel, woollen rugs are incredibly resistant to life’s little dramas! Resistant to dirt and spills, they are also fire retardant and offer excellent sound and heat insulation. If you are on a budget, a synthetic rug may be preferable as woollen rugs are often expensive. However, due to their hard-wearing nature, they are a worthy investment.
Plant-Fibre Rugs: Perfect for those who shop sustainably. Plant-fibre rugs are strong and resilient, much like woollen rugs. However, they are unique in that can help improve air quality; breathing and absorbing air humidity, plant-fibre rugs can remove harmful toxins caused in high-traffic areas. What’s more, they are pretty practical and resistant to dirt, although the odd spill may cause issue due to their ability to stain.

Resistant to stains and fading, they are incredibly easy to clean. The practical, durable choice for a busy family home where the odd accident is likely to happen!
