Rugs are a tricky thing. People usually pick them out last but they really need to be picked out first. It’s much harder to match a rug to your paint color than pick out a paint color to compliment your rug. Get it?
Found the perfect rug for your living room but it’s just not the correct size? Layering may just be the answer. It’s also the perfect way to add a little texture, lighter on the pocket, define space,
Just a few pointers from us here to remember when attempting this in your own home:
1. Make sure your base rug is large enough. Remember, in living room front furniture legs sitting on rug, dining room all chairs even when pulled out sitting on the rug.
2. Make sure the layered rug sizes are proportional, you don’t want a huge base rug and then a little rug sitting under the coffee table.
3. Pick rugs that have at least a little contrast in color. You don’t want the same color because then it will look like it is just layered to look like one rug instead of being really intentional.
