What are the benefits of rugs?
Interior design guru and Carpet Court ambassador Darren Palmer recommends adding rugs to your space for a variety of reasons. As an interior design element, they add softness, colour and texture to your décor and are the easiest, most affordable way to instantly update a room with the latest on-trend looks. Rugs also help define and zone a space - which is a big plus in homes that are open plan – by providing a unifying base to ground furniture and give a room foundation.
Rugs are also the perfect interior design choice if you’re renting, as they allow you to stamp your own style on a home.
Do rugs suit any type of flooring?
Absolutely. Rugs are incredibly versatile and look just as beautiful on a timber floor as they do on concrete or tiles. In fact, rugs are a great way to keep your floors looking as good as new by protecting them from damage such as scratches. They also help to absorb and reduce noises such as the sound and vibration of footsteps, which is ideal if you’re in a two-storey home or a unit.
What sort of rug should I choose?
Carpet Court has a huge variety of rugs to choose from, from traditional, jute rugs and round rugs to contemporary and modern rugs, in classic neutrals or bold colours. Before deciding which is the right rug and best style rug of for you, there a few lifestyle factors you should consider.
Think about who will be living in the space, how robust do the areas need to be to withstand foot traffic and moving of furniture? Also, if your family suffers from allergies, you should look towards a non-shedding floor rugs option.
It is also important to think about if the area is a wet area such as a bathroom and make sure the rug is somewhat water resistant. You can also match the rug to your bathroom accessories, bath mats and bath towels.
Wool rugs are beautiful, resilient, natural fibre and a luxuriously durable solution for bedrooms and living areas. Wool is a traditional carpet fibre that has good natural fire resistance, and is soil and stain resistant, making it an ideal choice if you have kids and pets.

What size rug should I buy?
Rug size is often the thing that rug buyers get wrong. A great rule of thumb is if it’s big enough to fill the room, it’s the right size. Tiny rugs look stingy while a big generous rug that sits under the sofa, dining tables, coffee tables, side tables, chairs and occasional furniture feels luxurious. If in doubt, always go bigger – as long as it fits into your living space. You can even use a rug as wall art and hang it on your wall at home instead of artwork.
