I would like to brighten/warm up a couple of rooms where we have cheap sisal rugs we bought when we moved in 5 years ago. Both rooms neutral in colours - grey/green/ neutral sofas and I'd like to brighten it up with a more dramatic rug. Any suggestions for good places to buy rugs please. I have looked at IKEA,
habitat and John Lewis. Budget is still quite low unfortunately! Thanks

Etsy/eBay?

This is from Argos (not their own brand - delivery only) and is pure wool and was approx £100

Ignore my hideous mexicana range TV unit - I don't really know what to do about that beast!

I bought a big rug very cheaply from a website called irugs. It shipped from the USA but delivery was quick and free and I never got any bill for customs. They have a huge range. I wanted the wool border rug from Dunelm but it didn't come in a big enough size.

You could paint it and replace the handles LittleWingSoul ?

B&q often have decent rugs, they had a beautiful blue one a few months ago that I pined for. I find rugs, decent ones, seem very expensive (for example when considering the relative cost of carpet) and nice ones/wool ones/ones from John Lewis seem ludicrously expensive, so much so that I never quite justify buying one.

Rug Vista are great and La Redoute have a good selection too.

Actually re: rugs being more expensive than carpet, you can buy a piece of carpet and have it bound at the edges quite cheaply. That is an option if you find a carpet you like. Most carpet shops will do it for you. Our local one charges something like £3 a metre (or should that be a foot???) for binding.

I love that rug Little. Agree about painting the tv unit. I paint loads of stuff here.

I second Irugs, I’ve bought several from them, great service, great variety and the rugs are very good quality at a good price.

I've just bought one from Laura Ashley but it smells so bad! My DD keeps asking why the room smells of farts!!!

Ooh yes good call on the carpet idea. For one room that would be perfect.. I will take a look at the other recommendations too. Thanks

Some in Argos are nice. I'm. On the lookout for a grey/green pattern one too.

I'd never heard of Irugs but thanks to this thread have just ordered one!

If it's as lovely as it looks I'll be delighted; it's the unusual size I needed at a very reasonable price.
