Tips and tricks to con­sider be­fore buy­ing a new rug

SMART BUY

think about the func­tion of your rug be­fore­hand. For ex­am­ple, if you want to add a cosy touch to your liv­ing room, go for some­thing with a lux­u­ri­ous-feel­ing deep pile, whereas if it’s go­ing to be lo­cated in a high-traf­fic area such as a hall­way, choose some­thing that’s a lit­tle bit eas­ier to main­tain.

BUD­GET SAVVY

If you don’t have the cash to splash out on a pricey pure-wool rug, con­sider go­ing for a cot­ton flat-woven al­ter­na­tive or one in a man-made ma­te­rial in­stead.

NEW FROM OLD

Why not try your hand at giv­ing an unloved plain rug a new lease of life. If it’s a low-pile rug, paint on a geo­met­ric de­sign us­ing mask­ing tape and fab­ric paints.
