Laminate flooring is not renowned for its heat-saving capabilities yet with winter approaching every drop of heat in the home is needed. We look at how you can warm up your laminate with a new rug creating a warm and stylish look in the home without you having to worry about those rising energy bills. 

Using Rugs to Warm Up Your Room 

If your laminate flooring is starting to feel cold as the winter months are approaching covering it with a rug is a much cheaper option than turning up the thermostat. Placing rugs on laminate flooring will enhance the beauty of your floor as well as providing a good source of insulation. 

Area rugs are usually large rugs that are designed to cover large areas of floor space. Using an area rug on laminate flooring will enhance your flooring’s great features, allowing you to still have the warmth of carpet while still maintaining the modern look of laminate flooring. 

When choosing which style rug to go for, there are many factors you need to take into consideration. Rugs can be used to make a decorative statement or can simply be bought for purpose and suitability. Choosing a solid colour such as a brown rug can make a neutral background in a room with a wallpapered feature wall, whereas a patterned rug can add a bold and bright statement to your room to create that focal point. 

With a wide range of styles and colours available at Carpetright, you’ll be sure to find one to suit your personal taste and requirements. Our traditional rugs range includes The Paris Collection and heritage Persian designs available in shades of red, brown and creams. Our modern rugs come in a range of different styles whether you opt for a floral rug or striped rug, there is sure to be a colour to match your rooms décor. 

Wool rugs are a great winter warmer, and make any room look great. When stepping on to a luxurious wool rug rather than a cold laminate floor, it instantly feels nicer and warmer for you and your guests. 

Securing a Rug on Laminate Flooring 

We recommend that when placing a rug on laminate flooring that you use rug grips to ensure that your rug stays firmly in place. At Carpetright our rug grips are suitable for use on all types of flooring including carpets and laminate.
