Rugs are practical features, but they’re so much more than that.
A great rug can help to pull a room together. A bright and bold rug can serve as a primary point of interest, while a neutral style will blend into the background adding a subtle touch of warmth and sophistication to a room.
Because they are easily interchangeable and available in a tremendous variety of options, rugs are also the perfect way to update a room.
If you’re ready for a change and looking for some new rug styles, here are a few options that you may want to try this season.
A braided jute rug in a soft, light color is a dressier alternative to the traditional jute rug. With earthy tones, they add a little bit of comfort to your home without taking over or demanding attention. These rugs also layer nicely. If you’re looking for a bit more color, but aren’t ready to invest in a full size version of your favorite rug, you could opt for a less costly jute rug to use as the base, and then layer a smaller, brightly colored rug on top.
Looking to add a splash of color to your home this season? A bright, multicolored block rug like this Surya Cosmopolitan rug is a great addition to a modern home with a contemporary design scheme.
Shag rugs are both functional and fun. While white or neutral colored shag rugs are an ideal option for most modern homes, if you’re looking for a touch of whimsy or if your décor can handle an infusion of color, choosing a rug like this Glamour Shag Rug is a sure way to make a strong and colorful statement in your home.
When it comes to choosing a rug, keep in mind the overall impact that the rug will have: will it be a focal point or a complimentary feature? Remember to look for something that will complement the style of your room, and help you to achieve the desired effect.
