Small Rugs

A small rug is a furnishing accessory that can add great character and warmth to any living or working space. A smaller rug can help to unite a decorating scheme across different rooms in the home, as well as helping to prevent dirt from entering or gathering in a room. Smaller rugs are particularly good for enhancing a hardwood floor, since they can allow you to display the beauty of natural wood while adding a touch of colour to the room.

A small rug also allows for more flexibility in the appearance of your rooms, as you can change the position of one or more rugs according to the style you want to achieve. Small rugs are ideal for placing in those areas of constant foot passage like a hallway or porch, and today's rugs can even be manufactured using braided plastics in bright colours for extra hard wear.

Similarly durable are small rugs made from natural fibres like hemp or jute, which can look good in a kitchen or work room, while still standing up to a lot of wear and tear. Small rugs can be handwoven, like a traditional kilim, or hooked like a North American rag rug, and modern manufacturing techniques allow for tufted rugs, carved pile rugs and rugs in a variety of shapes, since some fibres can be heat sealed.

One idea for small rugs is to choose a design in a set; often, the rug will come in three similar sizes, which can be placed around one space to draw the design together, especially if it is a picture or repeated pattern positioned on a neutral coloured carpet. You could have an extra small rug in front of a favourite chair, for example, with a matching small rug in front of the fireplace and a medium sized rug in the middle of the main floor area.

A small rug can lend itself to designs and textures which would be overwhelming in a larger version. Rainbow stripes, for example, or bold art deco florals, look really good in smaller quantities, while a natural fibre rug greatly enhances small spaces with rough textures and rustic weaving techniques such as herringbone or circular braiding.

A small rug can help to fill odd spaces where you need to cover an awkward feature, like a trailing cable – or perhaps an indelible stain on your fitted carpet. It can also provide extra warmth or protection for your feet, next to your bed or bath. Bathroom floors tend to be made of waterproof, washable materials that are not too soft or absorbent underfoot, so a cosy small rug will greatly increase the comfort factor in your bathroom.

At Luxury Floorings and Furnishings we have a variety of high quality small rugs available for your home or office use, from shaggy modern rugs to fabulous traditional rugs, all manufactured using the latest weaving techniques to ensure that you have a beautiful rug as well as an extremely durable product.
