Home Makeover on a Budget …The Perfect Rug

There was a Dunelm Mill store near where I used to work and I would go there every lunch time,  grab a coffee in the little cafe and wander around. It was jam packed with home wares and I adored looking at it all. Prices were always reasonable and stock changed regularly enough there always to be something new to look at.

It was a lovely, warm bright store and it always made me feel most welcome. Check out their grogeous apple draught excluder just £7.99!

I haven’t been in a few years since becoming self employed.

I’ve missed it.

It never occured to me they would be online  ( I have no idea why I didn’t consider this!) Gosh they have everything in that store!!! Curtains, blinds cushions and all sorts of goodies for the home.

But I was searching for something very hard to find…the perfect rug.

Well I did indeed find in at Dunhelm Mill. Let me show you It’s called the Henley Rug. It comes in 10 different block colours.

I think it is a great value and easy to care for rug. It has a lovely texture is tactile and cosy.

They advise a simple hand brush from time to time so this long pile rug will ‘stay looking its best and feeling soft between your toes.’

We can’t decide if it is staying in the lounge where it looks super cosy and where we will see it most..or in the playroom where the cold laminate needs cheering up.

The medium size was  120cm x 170cm (47″ x 67″) and this is absolutely perfect for our lounge or playroom we haven’t quite decided which yet) and it cost £49.99 which as good quality rugs go is excellent value ( I know I have had a very long look around.)

We love this rug it is soft cosy deep and thick and the colour is just lovely .

The website photo does not do it justice it is really luxurious.

As you can see it really makes the lounge look inviting
