Our designers have listed their top 5 tips on what to consider when purchasing a rug


1. Your lifestyle.

Rugs can be an investment so you need to consider how you will use the space and what you need from the rug. If you have pets or kids, make sure you select a rug tat is durable and practical. We'd recommend a tight weave rug. A favourite at norsu is the Sherpa.

2. Colour is key.

Be sure to select a colour that is versatile and ties in with your furniture and homewares in the room. The pumice colour way in the Sierra, Sherpa and Braid Weave rugs is a perfect example, women using three different shades of grey thread, it will pair perfectly with any shade of grey in both warm and cool tones, and is also very forgiving with stains.

3. Size matters.

Don't hold back when it comes to sizing. If you've got the floor space always go for the larger size. Use painters tape to mark out the space the rug will sit and help you visual the final look of the space.

4. Create a cohesive space.

Ensure your main items of furniture sit on the rug in some capacity, even if its just a sofa or bed. This will provide you with more cohesive space.

5. Placement.

The placement of your rug can define your space. Always run them parallel with your sofa and dining table.
