Your ultimate Rug Care Guide is here

Choosing the right rug can sometimes be tricky. Shape, size, material and wearability are all factors to consider when buying a rug. There are no strict rules when it comes to picking your perfect rug, but we have created a go-to guide for selecting and placing the right rug for you!
When choosing a rug for your living room, less is NOT more. Smaller rugs can make a space look smaller or cluttered in comparison to larger rugs which give the illusion of a more spacious room.
For a classic living layout, place the rug in the centre of the room and place the front legs of your sofa and armchairs on the rug. This will help create a better aesthetic and cleaner appearance.
A rug in the bedroom is all about a warm and comfortable underfoot, especially for those with hard flooring! For those wanting a larger rug for the room, we recommend a rectangular rug that sits right under the lower end of the bed and extends at least 50cm beyond the sides of the bed (depending on the size of your bedroom).
For those who don’t want a large rug but still want a warm underfoot when getting out of bed, we recommend a round or runner rug to place at either side of the bed.
Scale and proportion is key when placing a rug in your dining room. As a rule, you want your rug to be large enough to accommodate all the dining chairs, even when they are pulled out from the table. We recommend your rug be large enough to extend around 60-70cm beyond your table.
For high traffic, spill-risk areas like the dining area, we recommend a low-pile rug and easy-to-clean material like polypropylene for a rug.
Natural fibres like jute and hemp are eco-friendly and bio-degradable fibres that have a versatile look and feel that is easy to style. These fibres are durable and great for adding a touch of natural texture to a space.
Jute is highly absorbent, so it is best to avoid damp areas or spaces that may experience spills such and the bathroom, kitchen and dining areas, as liquids can stain the pile. 
A popular natural fibre, Wool is a soft and warm fibre with excellent insulating properties. Wool holds colour well and generally cleans easily.
New wool rugs may experience some shedding within the first few months, however this will diminish overtime with frequent vacuuming.
This synthetic fibre is the easiest care option yet. Polypropylene is both stain and spill resistant, as well as being non-shed and easy to clean.
This durable and long-lasting fibre is great for high traffic areas of the home and is both kid and pet friendly!
Viscose is derived from natural sources but is a manufactured fibre. Viscose is an ultra-soft and shiny fibre that can be used on its own or to add a silky soft sheen to natural fibres such as wool rugs.
With viscose rugs, it is best to avoid spills and damp areas as liquids can stain the rug.
