Area rugs serve a variety of purposes, especially as fall turns into winter. They add warmth — both literally and figuratively — to your living space, can serve as a sound buffer when used to top hard surface flooring and can also help pull a room’s design together.
And if you have a coastal home, or want to bring the coast home, the colors, patterns and textures you select, combined with how you use your area rugs, can enhance your interior decor. Take advantage of technological innovations in textiles by choosing stylish indoor outdoor rugs that are made to look just as good as designer rugs but can withstand increased wear-and-tear.
The following are tips you can use for pulling your interior design together with Cottage & Bungalow’s beachy outdoor rugs:
Choose the right size. This is especially important if you’re using the rug to anchor a space, such as a living room or seating area. The area rug should be slightly smaller than your furniture arrangement to accommodate comfortable traffic flow around the perimeter.
Use patterns to spice it up. If you prefer neutral or monochromatic color palettes, try using a patterned area rug to add a bit of interest, like the Diamond Black and Ivory Rug that only requires vacuuming and the occasional gentle shake.
Rug layering. Don’t be afraid to use two or more rugs in a space to define different living areas. Layering rugs adds extra visual appeal. A large, solidly colored rug can frame a smaller patterned or complementary rug placed on top.
