What are cotton rugs like?
Cotton has been used to make rugs for centuries. Cotton fibres, which are a natural, renewable resource, are soft, pliable, and perfect for making cotton rugs; but there are several reasons that make cotton an excellent choice for your rugs.
There are many benefits to 100% cotton rugs and runners. First, cotton rugs are soft and smooth underfoot. The smooth surface of cotton rugs makes them absolutely ideal for use as kids’ rugs, and the fact that cotton rugs are easy to clean just makes them all the more perfect - their anti-allergenic nature means they can even be used as nursery rugs.
Cotton rugs are suitable all year round
Secondly, cotton is a versatile fabric that’s suitable for use in cotton rugs all year round. Cotton rugs don't trap as much heat as wool so won’t perform as an insulator in the same way. Cotton rugs are perfect all year round. However, if you do want to keep your floors bare in the summer, cotton rugs are pliable so easy to store (we’ll get to this in a moment!) so you can have truly versatile and seasonal décor.
Cotton rugs won’t give you carpet burn like synthetic or polyester rugs will, either, and are much more comfortable to walk and sit on. Cotton rugs are also breathable and won’t attract dust or harbour mites, so these cotton rugs are much better for people who suffer from allergies: this makes a large cotton rug the perfect choice for living areas, as well as in the bathroom or kitchen.
Finally, cotton is an easily treatable fibre that takes extremely well to dyes and can be easily hand-woven or loomed into myriad different cotton rug patterns and designs. Grey cotton rugs, white cotton rugs, and plain weave cotton rugs with geometric patterns and lots of different colours are perfectly achieved with cotton.
How to clean a cotton rug?
Large cotton rugs are incredibly easy to care for – and some can even be placed in the washing machine! To keep your cotton rug looking beautiful and in excellent condition, vacuum it regularly and simply spot clean it with a rug cleaner. If your cream or white cotton rug is looking a little grimy (which can happen quickly especially if you use yours as kitchen rugs or in the dining room), then treat the stains with a natural stain remover and pop it in the washing machine on a gentle cycle.
What size cotton rug should you buy?
Before you decide on the style of cotton rug you’d like in your home, you should determine what size you need. We offer most of our cotton rugs in 3 sizes:
140x200 cm cotton rugs should fit well into smaller rooms, for example kids' rooms.
A 170x240 cm large cotton rug will work in the bedroom if you place it perpendicular to the bed, and around 60 cm under the foot of the bed.
A 200x300 cm large cotton rug would be great for the living room. Beige, cream or grey cotton rugs would blend perfectly with almost all furniture and create a spacious feeling in the room.
