Choosing the right rug is tricky when all things are considered – placement, foot traffic, and style preference. Sometimes these options are so similar that it makes the decision that much more challenging. So think outside the box with these 5 ways you can spruce up your space with rugs:
Make an entrance
Roll out the runner so you’re not slipping when you walk inside the door. Even if you don’t have a large entrance area, choose a considerate sized rug to prevent further damage to the floor below and catch dirt at the door.
Layer on the rugs! We mean it. This approach will cozy up your home in winter and add dimension to your space, creating a stronger visual interest and inviting more colors and textures into your home.
Go high pile shag
What do you know – shag rugs are back! They work well on wood floors and can be switched up with a low pile rug if you live in a multi-climate environment. Don’t be afraid to pile on the texture.
We usually think about rectangular shapes when it comes to rugs, but who says you can’t try something outside the box? Literally. Try three circular rugs layered on top of one another to tailor your floor coverage and fit your unique layout.
A multi colored rug can help you disguise stains when they occur. Whether it be wine, chocolate, or tomato sauce from your child’s birthday celebration, a rug with multi colored flecks in it act as a beautiful distraction from the small mess.
