Large Rugs

Large rugs can enhance the look of a floor that is old or damaged and needs replacing. They can add colour or patterns to a room whilst covering less attractive aspects of your flooring such as stains or dents. Even on the most attractive flooring, a large rug is useful for providing colour to be accented, warmth, visual depth and texture underfoot. They also allow protection from damage in high traffic areas and prevent dirt from spreading. Large rugs are those that are larger than 140 x 200m and tend to go up to 170 x 240cm - any larger is considered extra large, which we also stock.

Large rugs are popular in kitchens to provide extra comfort for diners under a table for example and highlight the style of your dining set. In lounges they are also common for soothing the eyes between seating and a TV, especially in plain colours or relaxing designs that reflect other features in the room. This can include a floral or animal theme, but shouldn’t be too overwhelming, as a large area of pattern can crowd a room. In large or open-plan rooms, patterns work really well as there is room for this without overcrowding.

Larger rugs can also decorate a plain room without design features by creating a focal point on a neutral floor for example. This also works in commercial spaces such as showrooms and galleries. Carpeted areas with worn down areas can be hidden, but it is important to consider how seamless this will look. On wood flooring, the floor is made more comfortable to walk on, and the colour of the rug can be used to compliment the colour of the floor. try contrasting dark and light shades or using bold colours.

As rugs can often come in various sizes, you can create a matching look in different parts of the room or different rooms of the house too. An example is placing a larger rug in the middle of the floor, an extra small one in front of a fireplace, and a small one in front of the doorway - this will help tie the room together well. Most of our rugs are available in multiple sizes per design to help you achieve this.

Please see our wide range of rugs, available in different types, sizes, shapes and colours, and find which would be best for your home.
