A RUG ON ANOTHER RUG??
Why,How or When ???
If you are one of the curios majority who want to justify the rug on a rug trend, read on to learn WHY, WHEN and HOW we designers prefer to use it.
Well, first of all,layering a vibrant rug on an old or boring carpeted flooring will definitely add texture and depth to your space.
Secondly, it will enhance the space it is used in and maybe even define new borders.So, ADD richness to your space by bringing in color or texture with rug layering.
ALSO, using a striking rug on a plain one will clearly draw more attention to the furniture placed on it. Therefore, it is the best way to dramatize the effect of a centerpiece.
If you have a very light colored delicate rug that can be easily stained,you can protect it by layering a hard wearing, patterned dark kilim on top.
If your existing high quality rug is visibly stained and there is no way to get it off, then go ahead and buy a new cheaper rug smaller in size and place it on top of the valuable one.Thus, you still have your precious aged rug underlying the newcomer.
You want to change colors but you still want to keep an old rug you love! Well then, go shopping for a cheaper and bigger rug with your new color preference and place it underneath your old one to change the ambiance.
You have completed your entire decoration with a simple and plain rug and you feel something is missing! Maybe you were not brave enough to buy that big vibrant rug, or maybe your dream rug was out of your budget.
Keep in mind that you can easily twist a plain decoration with a small colorful and patterned rug and DON'T FORGET:smaller size will be easier on your pocket.
A popular method is to put a cowhide on a jute rug or on a wall to wall carpeted flooring.It has no definite boundaries,so, it will make your space look bigger.Personally,I prefer to use black and white zebra look to create more depth.
Another great way to spruce up your decoration is by placing a round rug on a bigger rectangular rug. It will certainly create a major focal point.I recommend using this method to draw attention to a center piece of furniture like a coffee table or an ottoman.
Layer them unconventionally , maybe half and half for a wider feeling of space. You will definitely MAKE A STATEMENT with an antique kilim randomly layered on top of a plain natural fiber rug.
Confession:No matter why,when and how,RUG ON A RUG is a favorite design trend I won’t give up soon.So, I say, dig in to find old rugs in your storage spaces and layer them for a totally fascinating and stylish new look.
