Industry: Rugs

With energy prices on the increase, now is a good time to buy a rug, say the team at the Natural Rug Store. This winter, millions of UK home-owners face another huge hike in energy costs. Switching providers is one way to trim a few pounds off bills; increasing insulation is another way. And since 15% of a building's heat loss is through the floor, a natural rug could help cut the cost of heating a home and reduce its carbon footprint.

Rugs insulate floors and cut bills according to the experts at the Natural Rug Store

With energy prices on the increase, now is a good time to buy a rug, say the team at the Natural Rug Store. This winter, millions of UK home-owners face another huge hike in energy costs. Switching providers is one way to trim a few pounds off bills; increasing insulation is another way. And since 15% of a building’s heat loss is through the floor, a natural rug could help cut the cost of heating a home and reduce its carbon footprint.

“Most people forget about the floor beneath their feet, when they’re thinking of energy savings,” says Steven Handley, Managing Director at The Natural Rug Store. “Of all the surfaces in a room, that’s possibly the easiest to insulate. You don’t need specialist equipment or materials, you just buy a natural rug and lay it on the floor.”

Choosing an attractive and energy-saving rug from the Natural Rug Store is easy. Visitors pick a style and choose their size, and their hand-made in the UK rug will be with them in 14 to 21 days. Or they can design their own from a wide range of natural fibres – coir, jute, seagrass, sisal, sisool, or wool – and a superb range of colours and weaves. Rug designers can even choose their own border – also made from natural materials – and specify the exact size to fit their room. The result is a unique combination of natural fibres and colours with a restful look and a natural heat-trapping ability.

For most designers, however, the energy-saving element of their natural rug is secondary to its visual appeal. Natural materials are inherently restful. The mood in a home floored in natural materials such as coir, jute, seagrass, sisal, sisool, or wool is serene. This is an interior design look that speaks of peace and tranquillity. It’s all about getting back to basics – muted colours, simple designs, and warmth underfoot.
