Layering rugs is fun way to decorate a space. It instantly adds dimension, texture and a beautiful design feature. Here are my top tips on layering rugs. When choosing rugs to pair together, your goal should be to have one neutral rug and one rug with some sort of pattern or colour. The neutral rug fits best as the underneath rug because it will perfectly frame the patterned rug placed on top of it. Another fun way to layer a rug is by placing a round rug on the corner of your main area rug. This works well to highlight another piece of furniture such as an arm chair.

Have you ever had a problem with rug on rug then furniture on top rug shifting constantly? We have rugs in 2 rooms and we can’t keep the rugs straight!
