A rug’s a rug, right? Wrong. The type of rug you choose depends very much on the type of flooring that you have. Some rugs can be very slippery on certain surfaces, for example.

Laminate flooring can be comparatively cold, so adding a rug can be a positive step, both in terms of aesthetics and in terms of insulation.


Laminate is a great ‘blank canvas’. In terms of colour, it’ll look good with virtually anything. To warm up your space, consider a carved pile or tufted rug. They’re wonderfully soft under foot, and at the same time, provide an extra layer of insulation.


Jute is perfect for a busy family because it’s a wonderful anti-slip material that is also very stain-resistant. These rugs are soft, but not fluffy: function is their primary advantage.


Don’t be afraid to go bold when it comes to the colour of your rug. Choose a colour that is complementary to the colour of your laminate flooring, or contrast it completely for a dramatic effect, depending on your style.
