Traditional Rugs

Traditional rugs are those that are Moroccan, Persian or Oriental in design, and may or may not be the real thing. Our rugs are all replicas rather than genuine antiques, but we think this is better as they will last longer, and are much more affordable. A strong central design with decorative bordering is found on our traditional rugs, and they are hand made in the traditional methods that have been used for generations. With Luxury Flooring’s traditional rugs, you won’t need an authentic antique to get the personality, character and backstory that a traditional rug can bring to your home!

Practically, a rug can help you save on heating bills thanks to the warmth they create underfoot. A rug acts as an insulator - particularly thicker varieties - meaning the warmth in a room is retained for longer and spreads across the surrounding flooring too. If you have high heating bills, these can be reduced by up to 30%, and the cold and hard feeling of tiles, stone or wood underfoot can be eliminated.

As wood floors cannot facilitate underfloor heating, we definitely recommend a rug to compliment these, as well as in terms of style. A rug completes a floor, adding contrasting colour that can be accented by other colours in the room and bring it all together. It can also fill empty space and make a room seem more homely. The comfort of a rug underfoot additionally helps this, helping you relax and wind down after a long day. This is particularly useful in an area of grouped furniture, such as sofas, chairs and a coffee table, in which a rug helps create an area for socialising. A rug better defines this area and suits the atmosphere of having company. A traditional rug in particular suits empty space in addition to this, as the strong design makes them the centre of attention and often the main aspect of a room.

Another practical benefit is the ability to use these rugs in high footfall homes, including those with children and pets. The pile is less likely to become damaged by pet claws, dirt and general use, and any use would be less visible than on a shaggy rug. These rugs are the best for homes that are unpredictable or uncontrollable, but we would recommend darker colours for those who cant clean as often as they would like in such environments so dirt is better hidden.

The design of a traditional rug adds great elegance to any home, as well as showcasing your personality well. You will appear to be a connoisseur of culture and interior design, especially if you know how to compliment your rug. Often, similar colours are not used, but rather complimentary ones found in the culture in which that rug originates. For example, elegant candles, fireplaces, wood and stone walls and flooring can be used, or Moroccan style tables and couches. Use a traditional rug in a living room or social area so the personality and character can be seen and appreciated by all guests.
