Put a carpet and/or rug on the floor

Soft carpeting or finely woven rugs will give your bedroom all the comfort it needs.

When it comes to choosing the best carpet or rug for the space, make sure you opt for the right colour and the highest quality material in order to tastefully decorate your room.

Finely crafted natural fibre wool and silk woven rugs featuring elaborate, picturesque designs and muted tones such as beige, white and champagne are perfect for kitting out your room with a touch of class.

If you do choose to put down carpet, select the type you like best. Bouclé carpet is soft and comfortable to the touch, while soft velvety velour is one of the finest materials. Opt for needle-punched carpet if you need something more flexible and resistant.

Always remember to choose a carpet or rug that matches the space.
