Material

What is both cool and warm? Wool!

You certainly can’t go wrong by choosing a wool rug. These amazing area rugs look incredibly cool, all while feeling amazingly soft and warm – the best possible combination of them all!

If you are all about comfort, neutral colours and sleek designs, you might want to opt for a rug that is a gorgeous blend of cotton and wool.

Twice as nice acrylic rugs

Acrylic rugs come with two advantages – easy maintenance and affordability. It’s a very useful material that will enable you to choose any desired design without breaking the bank – or the vacuum cleaner. These rugs are especially useful for areas where you have a lot of foot traffic and you don’t want to waste too much time and money when you know that your investment is not going to last. Acrylic rugs are great options for those that love the look of wool, but cannot afford the real deal. They do a good job at mimicking wool’s luxurious appearance and feel.

Patterns

Neutral

If your current décor abounds with colours, you don’t need yet another stimulating eyeful. Quite the opposite, by opting for a rug with a simple pattern and colour that resembles the calmness of beach sand, you will (at the very least) be able to tone down the visual impact of the colourful symphony you already have going on. Always remember that balance and colour compromise are your best allies when you are trying to add a sense of place to your space.
