A New Year, A New Look?

Revitalise Your Home For 2013

The rush and excitement of Christmas is well and truly over and 2013 is now in full swing.  A new year can bring about a lot of questions about ourselves from our career goals to our lifestyle. 

A New Year means a whole new set of possibilities and opportunities and we often find ourselves clearing out the old and bringing in the new. 

For some of us this allows us to let go of the past and welcome a new beginning and fresh start. For others it is simply spring cleaning coming early or taking advantage of some Christmas money to spend on ourselves for a change. 

Whatever your reason may be, one of the easiest ways to revitalise your home or work place is by adding a rug to it. Not only does a new rug instantly lift a dull and faded carpet, or create a soft warm feeling underfoot on hard floors, it also adds colour, warmth and personality to any room. 

Rugs come in a variety of sizes and prices to suit all rooms and budgets. They range in style from traditional designs to modern and elegant, to funky ‘out there’ designs! There really is a rug to suit every room and every personality. 


If you are in search of a new you and a new home without moving or picking up a paint brush then browse through our website and see what takes your fancy. You can even add rugs to your ‘wishlist’ and come back to them another day.

 If you have any questions we are always happy to help on the other end of the phone or by email.

We haven’t had such a great summer this year in the UK, so how about cheering yourself up with one of the fantastic new quality rugs we’ve added to Rugs Direct from the renowned carpet designers, Asiatic. They are world leaders in fashion rugs and have won awards for their well designed and innovative products. 

From their contemporary rug collection we’re featuring the Jazz range. These rugs are made from 50% polyester, 30% wool and 20% viscose and are heavy with varying pile heights that accentuate the subtle geometric patterns. The plain colours have understated metallic highlights adding to an opulent and sophisticated feel. These are chic rugs that will add both luxury and distinction to your room.

Keeping the emphasis on luxury, we have the Kura range made from 100% polyester with all the benefits of an easy to manage yarn. These rugs have been hand tufted with a dense and deep pile, making them very soft underfoot. An organic scroll design has been etched into the thick pile creating a distinctive pattern. Luxurious and beautiful these are some of the best examples of modern rug design at affordable prices.

The Brilliant rug collection is again hand woven from 100% polyester but this time they’ve used a loop pile. The loop weave creates a thick pile and reflects the light giving a lovely shimmering effect. These rugs bring a warm yet sophisticated feel to any space.
If you’re looking for modern rugs combining luxury with a slightly minimalist feel these are three ranges to take a look at.
