Gone are the days where carpet reigned supreme in our homes. Timber floorboards from planks to parquet, natural flagstones from limestone to slate, and striking materials and finishes from contemporary poured concrete to polished marble tiles are being loved and used in every room of the house – instead of or as well as carpeted floors. No longer do we only see these wipe-clean floors as options for kitchens, bathrooms and hallways where their low maintenance nature makes life far easier. Now, we appreciate them from sitting room to bedroom for their beauty, their resilience, their contrasting textures and mottled hues. But, in the absence of underfloor heating, how do you stop them from feeling too cold underfoot? The answer isn’t rug. It’s rugs, plural.
