While there may be many reasons or occasions for layering rugs - solving spacial issues, creating contrasts, and/or quickly covering up a flooring imperfection - sometimes it's just plain fun! If you're in the mood for layering, here are three tips to help you make the best of it.
1. Reinforce: If you prefer the more simplistic designs, layer solid, lightly contrasting in color rugs to reinforce clean lines.
2. Draw: Have a little something special you'd like to highlight? Throw a vivid or brightly colored rug over a neutral toned floor directly under your prized piece. This will draw the eyes of guests to your object of affection.
3. Redefine: While layering rugs can define an area, it can also work to redefine one too. Create area "spill-over" or connect two spaces by layering one rug over another in a manner that allows the top rug to flow onto the original floor space - reaching far past the first layer.
