In the Market for a New Rug? You Might Like One of These Popular Styles

May 11, 2016 12:03 pm

Choosing a perfect rug for your home often requires a lot of trial and error, but you don’t have to go into it blindly. Before you head off to the home goods store, decide on the general style of rug that you want to use in your space. Here are just a few popular styles.

  • Shag Rugs. If you’re looking to create a comfortable, traditional look, such as in the living room or the bedroom, this is a great option. Shag rugs are much thicker than others, and they often come in either all-over colors or simple patterns that balance their long fibers.
  • Oriental Rugs. These ornately patterned rugs are gaining a lot of popularity in the design world for their eclectic, multicolored looks. They’re flatter than many modern rug styles, and they have a tightly woven construction that’s ideal for high-traffic areas.
  • Jute Rugs. Jute rugs and other rugs made of natural fibers add a balanced, relaxed feel that’s also incredible durable. They also go with just about anything and look great in almost any room.
  • Ikat Rugs. These woven rugs are similar to Oriental styles, they feature larger, more geometric patterns in overdyed colors.
  • Traditional Wool Rugs. If your style is more contemporary, a traditional wool rug in a rich color helps to tie a room together. These often have defined borders, which are helpful in separating a room.
