9 Rug Trends You’ll Want to Know
Check out these rug trends to help update your home or office space:
1. Use Area Rugs
You never realize just how much an area rug can make or break a room until you hit the carpet jackpot and get it oh-so-right. Between figuring out the right size for your space and narrowing down the pattern and texture that appeals most to you and your aesthetic, picking a rug can be a time-consuming activity—but the beauty of it is how wonderfully a gorgeous rug can tie a space together.
If you’re coveting a vintage Turkish rug like the one pictured here, you don’t need a passport to get this look—a flea market is a great place to start your hunt for the perfect rug. Check out more stunning rug trends and transform your space without ever lifting a hammer or a paintbrush.
2. Layer Your Rugs
Can’t decide on a pattern or texture? Have an heirloom rug that’s just a little too small for your living room? The layered rug look has become very popular in the last few years, and it’s a great way to have fun with textures and styles. But it’s important to get it right and fully consider your space before you layer. A fun, bold piece like a cowhide rug looks great over a more neutral choice like a jute or wool rug and allows you to cover more area without overpowering the space.
3. Beni Ourain Moroccan Rugs
One of Morocco’s biggest exports is textiles, and it’s no question why. The small African country creates stunning rugs and blankets like nowhere else. There many types of Moroccan rugs, each one unique in its origin and craftsmanship.
4. Fall in Love With Chevron
Chevron is a hugely popular rug pattern that packs a big punch. Woven chevron rugs are a great way to add texture and pattern to a room without overpowering it. If you’ve been meaning to experiment with mixing prints, chevron looks great with nearly every pattern (floral, striped, tropical—let your imagination run wild).
5. Rugs in Unlikely Places
The kitchen may seem like a dangerous place for a rug, but it can be a wonderful way to add color to a neutral kitchen and sprinkle in a bit of pattern where there may not otherwise be any. Though you’ll want to be careful of stains, a rug can also add cushion under your feet for those long Sunday meal prep hours. Try a cheap runner or a faded vintage piece to ease into the look.
6. A Modern Cowhide
Animal print is a trend that ebbs and flows in popularity, but it’s been a focal point in house tours and on Pinterest over the past few years.
7. Loud and Geometric
et your home be loud and proud. From wallpaper to flooring, bold geometric prints are so in right now. A bright, patterned rug makes a big statement in any space; the green block-patterned rug in this tropical-inspired bedroom ties the whole look together.
