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
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.
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.
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.
