There’s nothing quite like getting home to a really comfortable setup regardless of whether you live in a studio apartment, a flat or a house. Every living space benefits from the inclusion of a rug because few other elements are actually as good at performing the job of welcoming you back to your familiar, warm and comfortable surroundings.

They do this in a couple of different ways. The first is the simplest. They welcome you warmly because they are in themselves very warm and comfortable. Their texture tends to be a delight and they greet you with their luxurious fibres. Shaggy rugs, sheepskin rugs and other rugs with deep piles are especially good at performing this lovely little trick.

However, they do also welcome people by ushering them back into the decorative surroundings they connect with the most. People always choose rugs that appeal to them aesthetically – traditional rugs, modern rugs, oriental rugs, natural rugs and so on. When you arrive home to find your choice of rug waiting for you, you really know that you’re in your own place – the place that has your personal tastes stamped all over it.
