Roll out some quality; A well-chosen rug will make a difference to any room.
WOODEN, tiled and laminated floors are all very practical - but hard, solid flooring like this isn't known for being comfortable underfoot.
And, while it may have a clean modern look, single-colour flooring can seem a little one-dimensional on wide expanses - even if it is real wood.
Which is why so many people love the look and feel of a rug.
The range of rugs is vast and includes a huge variety of materials, from budget-conscious acrylics to eco-friendly weaves and cottons.
Patterns, designs and colours are only limited by the imagination. And, because a rug can be rolled up and moved at any time, you know you won't be stuck with the same old look for years.
Here are several rugs that will add a talking point to any room.
