Layering Rugs All You Need To Know

You have probably noticed that beautiful images of layered rugs have been popping up everywhere lately and this is for good reason: Rug layering is one of the biggest trends in interior decorating right now. Layering your rugs is a fabulous way to add warmth, texture and character to your home. Want to partake in this trend? Read on and we will share with you all you need to know about layering up rugs in your home.

HIGHLIGHT AN AREA


This is a fantastic trend because it allows visual direction of the eye within the home interior. Layering a small rug on top of a larger one directs the eye to that specific space. You can use this trick to highlight show-stopping feature furniture or accents in your home that you love.

DEFINE A SPACE


If your fortunate enough to have large areas in your home then layering rugs can be a great way to anchor the space in which your furniture sits so as that it does not get lost in your vast interior. By layering rugs you are able to provide definition to your space and give purpose to the area. Standard rug rules state there should be approximately 10-20 inches of bare floor between the edges of an area rug and the walls of a room and that most furniture should be sitting on the rug. By layering a smaller rug over this larger sized base rug you can define the central space in your room so that everything doesn’t feel too spaced out!

CONSIDER COLOUR

Layering rugs is a fabulous way to play with colour and pattern in your interior. Whether you are layering a colourful rug over plain carpet or a mottled hide over a jute base rug, this is the perfect opportunity to introduce some bolder colour choices into your home. Think neutral base with a smaller pop of colour, vintage boucherouite rugs are fabulous for adding intense pops of colour and pattern.

EXPERIMENT WITH TEXTURE

You don’t always need to introduce colour to make this rug layering magic happen, placing texture into the mix is another great way to add depth to your interior. Try adding a cowhide or a sheepskin onto a jute or sisal base rug to create a look that is visually striking and subtly effective.

DON'T BE AFRAID

Don't be afraid to experiment, this is a styling technique that you can use in any room in your home to create visual interest and depth. Have fun with it and constantly rotate your layered rugs in your home for an instant interior update. No wonder this is such a strong interior trend, the possibilities are endless and the potential is enormous!
