RUG UP THIS WINTER WITH SUMPTUOUS FLOOR RUGS FOR YOUR HOME
Floor rugs add warmth, comfort, character and colour to every home. Our beautiful rug collections in classic and trending designs are sure to add the perfect finishing touch to your décor.
What are the advantages of using a rug?
Interior design guru and Carpet Court ambassador Darren Palmer recommends adding rugs to your space for a variety of reasons.
The practical and aesthetic benefits of thick and luxurious floor rugs include:
- Thermal and acoustic insulation
- Softness and comfort underfoot
- Adding colour and textural design elements
- Creating definitive living/dining zones within open plan spaces
- An affordable way to update a room with the latest on-trend looks
Rugs are also the perfect interior design choice if you’re renting, as they allow you to stamp your own style on a property.
Do rugs suit any type of flooring?
Floor rugs are incredibly versatile and look just as beautiful on a timber floor as they do on concrete, carpet or tiles. In fact, rugs are a great way to keep your hard floors looking as good as new by protecting them from damage such as dents and scratches.
You'll find our fabulous range of rugs are also adept at providing acoustic insulation on hard floor surfaces, helping to absorb noises like footsteps. For this reason floor rugs are a great addition to your upstairs living spaces and bedroom floors if you’re in a two-storey home and suited to all home decor environments.
What sort of rug should I choose?
Carpet Court has a huge range of quality rugs to choose from, including:
- traditional designs from across the globe
- jute rugs and natural fibre rugs
- round rugs and rectangular style rugs
- modern rug designs in a variety of patterns
- textured rugs and plush rugs
- wool, synthetic and natural rug fibres
- classic neutral tones and bold colours
While the colour, design and style are a matter of taste and what suits your existing furnishings, choosing the right rug fibre and size are what will determine the level of performance and durability of the rug in the long term.
Consider your environment, lifestyle and budget to determine whether wool, synthetic or natural fibres are the best rug for you and opt for the biggest size to suit the area.

What different features should I look for when buying a rug?
When deciding which is the right rug for you, there a few important lifestyle factors to consider:
- Think about who will be living in the space, how robust does the rug need to be to withstand foot traffic, pets, kids and heavy furniture? Does it need to be a rug which is easy to clean?
- If your family suffers from allergies consider non-shedding fibres for floor rugs, especially in bedrooms.
- What sort of environment is the rug going into - do you live in an area of Australia with high humidity or very cold winters? Is the rug going into a wet area of the home, or a kitchen space? Choose rug fibres appropriate to the conditions in these scenarios.
- What is the right size and shape of rug for the space into which it is going? Ensure the rug is big enough to define the area and make contact with the main pieces of furniture in that space.

Wool rugs are a beautiful, resilient, natural fibre rug, and a luxuriously durable solution for bedroom and living area floors. Wool is a traditional carpet fibre that has natural fire resistance, the best insulative properties, and is naturally soil and stain resistant making it a great choice in cool climate family homes.
Synthetic rugs perform exceptionally well in high traffic areas such as the dining room, living room, hallway, family room and home office. Stain resistant, moisture repellent and easy to maintain, they’re a great choice living spaces in busy family homes.
Outdoor rugs are a brilliant way to add comfort and style to your outdoor entertaining spaces.
Carpet Court have an extensive range of outdoor rugs made from highly durable polypropylene. Specifically designed for alfresco areas, they are the perfect rug for decks, pergolas and alfresco spaces because:
- they are UV stable which means they won’t fade in the sun,
- they are easy to clean, just hose them down and let them dry in the sun,
- they define lounge or dining zones within large covered outdoor entertaining spaces.
How do you choose the right rug for your living space?
The important things to consider when choosing a rug for your living space are:
Along with colour, size is one of the most important criteria in choosing a living room rug. An area rug helps to define the living room space, particularly important in open plan designs. Ensure your living room rug is large enough to include part of your lounge furniture. Generally speaking, big is definitely better.
- Colour and Design
Do you want your rug to be the focal point in the room or to complement other features? If you want the rug to be a stand out accessory, choose bold designs and colours. If you prefer the living room rug to quietly complement other features tone it down and choose neutral or natural colours and un-fussy designs.
Choose the right carpet fibre based on your needs, such as warmth and insulation, durability and easy of cleaning. If yours is a busy home and the rug will occupy high traffic areas, modern rugs in synthetic fibres have good soil and stain resistance and are easy to clean. A luxury home or home in a cold climate might benefit from a wool rug providing sumptuous warmth and comfort under foot.
What sort of rug will suit a kid’s room?
Carpet Court has a huge range of rugs specially designed for kid’s rooms. Kids rugs provide a soft, comfy place to play, help protect your floor and are tough enough to withstand even the most boisterous activities.
Australian designed and made from 100% Japanese acrylic pile, these durable area rugs feature a super soft plush pile in bright colours kids will love. You can match their rug to their quilt covers and bedroom accessories for a coordinated look.
What size rug should I buy?
Rug size is often the thing that buyers get wrong. A great rule of thumb is if it’s big enough to fill the room or the living or dining space, it’s the right size.
Small rugs can be lost in a space while large rugs that sit under the sofa, dining tables, coffee tables or even side tables feels luxurious and spacious and can add to your homewares and room decor. If in doubt, always go bigger when coosing an indoor rug– as long as it fits into your living space.
You can even use a moroccan or flatweave designer rug as wall art and hang it on your wall at home instead of artwork.
