Decorating your conservatory can be a difficult task – especially when you are looking to make the interior design blend seamlessly with the rest of your home if you’ve just had one built. Conservatory rugs can help to bring a room together, as well as make your conservatory feel homely and warm. 

Often the type of conservatory rug you pick will be determined by your flooring, curtains or blinds if your property was bought with a conservatory. Or, if you have a DIY conservatory you may have a complete blank canvas to work with when it comes to your interior design! 

If you’ve never decorated a conservatory before, a great place to start is choosing what we like to call your ‘permanent furnishings’ first: Flooring, curtains, blinds and rugs. After that, it’ll set the tone for the rest of your furniture including chairs, cushions and decorations like coffee tables or standalone lamps.

Below, we review 10 of the best conservatory rugs below, taking into account their style, material as well as overall practicality in your home.

Summary

Finding the right design for your rug can be difficult, especially if you are torn between a few that you have looked at already. If this is a new conservatory that you are looking to find furniture for, it can pose its own challenges as not only can you be indecisive about the rug, but other factors such as the blinds, curtains, flooring and soft furnishings can also be difficult to choose from. 

Similarly, if you are replacing an old rug in your conservatory, you may be inclined to go for a completely different design but have reservations that it won’t be as good as the one you’re throwing away – let’s be honest, we’ve all been there!

Things to consider when buying a conservatory rug

Most of the time, your decision will rely on factors such as size, material, your living situation as well as your budget and what colour you want. Here are some things to look out for when purchasing a rug for your conservatory!

Colour

Your choice of rug will be influenced by the type of colour scheme you already have in your conservatory, or, if this is a new conservatory – the type of colour scheme that you want to emulate. Both are difficult situations, so we recommend looking at your other permanent furnishings such as flooring, blinds/curtains and the colour of your conservatory, as this should help you narrow down which colour you want your rug to be. If you already have a lot of dark colours, it may be worth adding a pop of colour to your rug to give it some character. Or, if you have a lot of textures and brightness with your permanent furnishings already, going for a neutral colour will balance the whole room.

Material

Often when we are decorating our home we want to have the finest fabrics in our homewear to emulate luxury, durability and make the room aesthetically pleasing. Often we forget the expense that comes with materials like wool or velvet, so opting for a practical material (that still looks gorgeous) will be a fraction of the price tag and will save you a lot of cleaning. However, if you are completely set on a luxurious material – definitely look into the cost of maintenance as that will help you narrow down which material will work best for you!

Size

Nothing looks more disproportionate than a rug that is too big or small for a room. If you have found your ‘dream’ rug, but the sizing options will not compliment your conservatory – we suggest re-thinking your design and looking for something that has more sizing options. You want to ensure that the rug fits perfectly in the room and doesn’t dominate the whole space.

Pets/Children

If you live in a household with pets and children that can be clumsy, malt and cause mess then this can also be a deciding factor in what kind of rug you purchase. For example, if you have children that you know are at the age of causing a lot of mess, it would be easier to purchase a rug that is quick to clean and won’t leave you tearing your hair out! Also, if you own dogs or cats that are long haired, finding a rug that won’t cling on to that is crucial.

Multi-use

Having a rug that you can use either in multiple rooms or outdoors could be something that is important to you – so if it is, find a design that does just that! There are reversible options available on the market as well as rugs that can be used outside, which can allow you to extend your entertaining area in the summer months.

FAQ

Are the rugs weather resistant?

Depending on which design you pick, you can purchase rugs that are weather resistant and can be used outdoors. It will be specified in the description box and if that is something that is important to you, look out for it being UV repellent and safe to use outside. 

Can I use rugs on any type of conservatory flooring?

Most rugs will complement any conservatory flooring, but be mindful of the colour and materials used for the floor as it may clash with the design that you pick. For example, a wooden floor wouldn’t work well with a rug that is a similar colour – you’d want to choose something lighter or darker. 

How can I clean the rug?

You should always check before purchasing the cleaning regime for each rug, but most rugs that are made of plastic or cotton can be wiped down, or some can be put in the washing machine providing they aren’t too big. We recommend going for a rug that is low maintenance.

Are the rugs washable?

Some rugs will be washable, but you have to check with each individual brand for their guidelines.
