As the temperature drops and darkness edges in, it’s time to snuggle up at home. Here’s our pick of the best rugs to guarantee cosy nights in this winter.

It feels good to kick off your shoes and sink your feet into a soft, warm rug at the end of a long day. From plain to patterned, striped to shaggy, designer to runner, rugs are also an effortless way to add character to any room in the home.

Think before you buy

Before choosing a new rug, there are a few things you should bear in mind:

  • Know your space. Be aware of the size and shape of your room, and consider how a new rug might complement it. Ensure you measure your space first to get the right size for your space.
  • Know your style and colour palette. Think about your style – is it more country living or modern minimalism? – and what colours would go well with your existing furnishings.
  • Know your family: If you have kids, or a busy household, we suggest opting for a darker or patterned rug to better disguise any scuffs or spills.

Which rugs will transform your space for winter?

The Ascot Rug

For a style that works in most modern homes, consider the Ascot Rug. It comes in plenty of colours and sizes, so you’ll be able to find an option that suits your taste and interior. The thick woollen material will soften wooden or tiled flooring, or add an extra layer of comfort and colour to your carpet. At the end of a long day, it will create a cosy and restful ambience.


The Fading World Babylon Rug

If you want to create a calm and peaceful space that allows you to recharge during the winter months, then look no further than the Fading World Babylon Rug. Its muted design, faded to give it an old-world quality, will gently infuse texture and pattern into your room.


The Galleria Rug

Its honeycomb pattern and irregular colour design will stand out against any floor.


How can you maximise your interior for a cosy night?

To really make the most out of your new cosy interior, why not spotlight the comfort with additional lighting?

Low lighting, like Floor lamps, emphasises the soft and calming mood of your room by highlighting the cosy texture and modern silhouettes in your interior.

STEMS LED floor lamp - Fishpools

A perfect contemporary option is the Stems LED floor lamp. Its distinctive five glass shades looks evocative of candles; the ultimate symbol for a cosy night in. This piece also has the option for a dimmer switch, so you can set the perfect ambience.
