When you dress a room, there is one thing that can tie together all your furnishings – a natural-fibre rug from Advance Flooring

Setting the scene


There is a growing trend towards hard flooring materials in new homes today. Wood, tiled and concrete surfaces are all in demand as homeowners look to create sophisticated, contemporary home interiors. But with any hard, bare floor, there is often a need to soften the décor.

Natural fibre rugs from Advance Flooring can provide that finishing touch. Visually, they also tie together your furnishings, helping to define seating and dining areas, for example.

Genuine sisal and coir rugs can be custom made to your specific size, colour and design requirements. The range of options includes more than 230 different patterns and weaves, and more than 190 borders and bindings made from fabrics such as jute, cotton, leather and tapestry.

As well as adding interest to hard flooring, Advance Flooring's natural fibre rugs introduce warmth and texture to a room, and contribute to noise reduction. They are also designed to be hard-wearing and slip-resistant – for safety purposes, each rug comes with an anti-slip underlay pad. In addition, as they are static-free. the rugs attract minimal dust and dirt, making them easy to care for.

The company says every Advance Flooring product is subjected to a nine-point quality inspection before it leaves the factory. This checks the quality of the yarn structure, knots and colour consistency.


Other flooring products from Advance Flooring include Artisan cowhide rugs and leather floor tiles. The tiles come in a range of colours to suit any décor. As well as providing an attractive and hardwearing surface, they also enhance walls, reception areas and executive desks.

Another service offered by the company is carpet and rug binding.

Advance Flooring works with designers and architects, and has a nationwide network of stockists and installers.
