5. Go for the Bold Stripe
If you have a neutral feeling room or even a room with lots of colors that you want to make a statement in, consider stripes. There are many rug options on the market in wide bold stripes in almost any color you might dream up. A bold stripe also gives a space a cottage feel if the right colors are chosen like the perfect navy and white stripe.
6. Tone on Tone
Looking to keep the room more neutral, try a tone-on-tone textured rug. You will often find these done in shades of cream, beige, off-white, or even taupe. Then the rug will have different pile heights or patterns in the carpet. So, while you have a one-color, you still get patterns from how the rug is made.
7. Bold Color
If you love bold color, and really who doesn’t, consider adding it to your floor. Remember, your rugs are like an accessory, so adding some big pops of color to your floors might be the perfect finish.
Look for complementary colors from the color wheel in your rug to go with your decor. You might also decide to do something with big contrast to make a statement in your room.
8. Custom Rugs
Maybe you don’t want a rug that is full of color and pattern. Or maybe you’re having a hard time finding the right size if you have a uniquely shaped room.
Consider having a custom rug made. Don’t let the word custom scare you into running to protect your bank account either. Many popular brands like Pottery Barn offer a custom rug selection. It’s like picking out carpet, except it’s a rug. You choose the weave, pattern, and size, then they edge it like a rug.
If you need a very large rug, some even opt for selecting a piece of carpet and have the carpet custom edge it.
Another statement-making rug can come in the form of copycat animal skin. Whether that is a large zebra or leopard print or cowhide, an animal print is an eclectic choice for a rug.
Some even opt for the sheepskin rug for an extra cozy feel or one with lots of fluffy texture.
10. Geometric Pattern
Going for a modern hip vibe? Consider looking for a rug that is made of geometric shapes. Often the shapes can come in a variety of colors and bold shapes.
Don’t worry about every color in the rug being a part of your room. As long as one of the colors coordinates with the room, it works. The other colors add layers to your decor aesthetic.
