The Geffrye Museum, recreating the hall in a middling Londoner's home in 1630.  Bare wooden floor-boards, cleaned with dry sand, were probably the most usual type of flooring. Patterned rush mats or plain matting, made in strips which could be sewn together to fit the room, were also widely used. Only the wealthiest could afford imported 'Turkey' carpets or English imitations. Both were so highly valued that they were often put on tables and cupboards. © Geffrye Museum
