Rugs and Carpets are a big investment and every second rug is more beautiful than the one before.

After going through what feels like a million rugs, we find something that you absolutely love, but then the next question arises, Where does it go? The bedroom or the living room-will it fit in with the rest of the decor?

Here are some of the most favored rug shapes and styles, with helpful tips to incorporate them seamlessly and stylishly into your desired space!

1) Jute Rugs

This just may be the quintessential material for a summery/tropical vibe. It is loved it for its versatility and subtle textural qualities that make up for its lack of color – one which often allows it to work easily within a variety of decorative styles. 

Jute rugs being understated provide opportunities for more vibrant furnishings and accent pieces. You can also layer the look with pieces that come with a stark contrast or bold detail.

Potted greenery aside, bringing the outdoors in hardly gets any easier than with a botanically-inspired floor piece. Whether you are going for the abundantly decked variety or something on the more subtle side, these colorful pieces will bring a lighthearted touch to just about any space.

A proper first impression (for the home) starts with a statement entry outfitted with an element as eye-catching as this botanical rug. Pair the look with furnishings of warm wooden details and woven textures to accentuate the bold tones of the piece.

Stripes are known for their ability to visually expand the look of a space. Throw down a vertically-striped runner in a tiny kitchen, and space is instantly elongated! Regardless of size, shape, or form, a striped rug is a classically timeless element that is functional as well.

The key to successfully incorporating an eclectically patterned rug into your space would be to pair it with decorative accents the come in similar tones. Here, a white sofa establishes a subtle backdrop for the colorful accents that will come to surround it. Throw pillows and a coffee table book borrow hues from the rug, helping establish a more cohesive element to the overall look.


4) Solid Colours

Solid-colored rugs may sound boring and plain but don’t underestimate the effect one can have on a space. When chosen carefully, a solid rug can unite a decor scheme, or provide a colorful moment in a monochromatic space. For instance, rose gold is the color of the year. Pink and Brass make a flawless pair. Solid pink textured rugs are versatile enough to fit within a variety of design schemes. Adding a set of dual-toned pieces of a mid-century modern make will complete the look says Domino.

5) Geometric

Modern, clean, and often decked with a complementary slew of colors. When it comes to rugs, the geometrically-patterned variety is hard to beat. These show-stopping pieces are best when paired with a more understated aesthetic or design scheme. Plus, they make for seriously chic wall-hangings as well!

Complement the design of a geometric rug by surrounding it with decorative accents that come in a similar style or make. Create a statement nook in the living room by outfitting a whitewashed side table with geometrically-focused pieces. Set a streamlined sconce above the side table and lay out a vibrantly patterned rug beneath it.
