Cream rugs have a proven track record, they have been our favourites for many years. Other colours have come into fashion and disappeared soon afterwards, but if you are looking for a rug you would never get tired of, go for a cream rug.
Cream rugs come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs. They are extremely versatile, do not clash with any other colours in your room and are much more practical than white or ivory rugs. You can choose from man-made fibres, like acrylic or polypropylene, or go for natural environmentally friendly and hypoallergenic fibres like silk or wool.
Shaggy rugs, sheepskins, persian, floral, modern patterned or plain designs – all come in different shades of cream.
Here are just a few ideas on how you can use cream rugs in your home.
Bedroom – throw a small rug by your bed and enjoy stepping on it first thing in the morning. What can be better than soft wool under your feet on a cold winter morning. You can even place a sheepskin rug on your bed or armchair as a throw for a touch of luxury.
Living Room – place a large rug in front of your sofa for a cosy look. Without a rug your living room will lack style and personality. You might want to add other colours to your decor and if you already have red curtains and cushions, cream will be the only colour that will not feel too overpowering. Choose from patterned traditional Persian designs or understated plain cream rugs.
Dining Room – add a round rug under your dining table. You will be amazed at how much more inviting your room will feel.
Hall and Stairs – choose a runner that complements the rug in your living room. It doesn't have to be the same colour, a darker shade of cream will be ideal for high traffic areas. A cream runner will look perfect against a dark or light wooden floor.
Bathroom – change your bath mat for a small rug if you want to have a bathroom resembling pictures in glossy magazines. Wool will feel much nicer underfoot than any bath mat available on the market.
Today cream rugs and carpets are the best sellers of the industry. They help us create a modern living space that is sophisticated and understated. You can chose from a variety of textures and they do not have to cost the earth.
