2. Can I layer rugs or use different rugs in the same room?
Yes. To help multiple rugs look unified, choose rugs that have something in common, such as a similar color palette or pattern. Another option is to layer a bright, bold, or hide rug over a larger, neutral rug, such as one made of sisal.
Patterned rugs are a natural way to determine your color scheme for a room. They also are more forgiving when it comes to wear-and-tear. On the other hand, in a space with lots of pattern or bold color, a solid rug can be a nice visual resting place for your eye that also helps anchor the room.
4. What if I have a small space?
A light rug will make your space feel airier and more spacious. Choose a deeper-colored rug if you're going for a cozy effect.
Yes! Layering an area rug over carpet is a clever way to define a space, such as a sitting area in relation to a larger living room. You'll find most success with a thicker, heavier rug since it is less prone to bubble or buckle.
