Five Beautiful Area Rugs That are Sure to Spruce Up Your Space

While the end of summer is usually a good time to declutter our spaces as we prepare for a new school year or change in season, it's also the perfect time to freshen up our homes with home décor pieces that brighten up gloomy days. We’re probably all still spending a little more time inside our homes lately, so why not make the most of our time inside and create a cozy space to live in? Area rugs are the perfect additions to tie together any room, and I’ve rounded up five beautiful rugs that are sure to bring comfort and style to your space.

  1. 1. Neutral + Texture

    Neutral home décor pieces are trending at the moment, and it’s not hard to see why. Adding a neutral rug to an already colorful room ties together the various colors that are already there. If your style is more minimalistic and boho, the Isadora Hilo Tufted Rug ($59 - $159, urbanoutfitters.com) keeps your space calm while adding a little something extra with the southwestern inspired texture and fringe. Add in some hanging houseplants and tasseled pillows and you’ve got the perfect desert oasis in your room!

  2. 2. Solid Shag

    Shag rugs are popular because of their affordability and easy clean-up. They are very versatile pieces that are soft to walk on and come in a variety of styles. I had this Solid Tufted Micropoly Shag Rug ($129.99 - $579.99, target.com) in my freshman dorm room, and it was the perfect piece to bring together me and my roommate’s different styles. Comfort is key when it comes to bedrooms, and shag rugs are the perfect addition to cozy-up any sleeping space!

  3. 3. Woven Wonder

    If you want to try a rug that isn’t so traditional, jute rugs are a great option. They aren’t as soft as shag rugs, but the woven texture and uniqueness of the piece makes jute rugs the perfect addition to your home. Because jute rugs are woven and thin, they hold up much better than thicker rugs in high-traffic areas of homes.This Bleached Ivory Basket Weave Jute Rug ($129.99 - $269.99, worldmarket.com) is sure to add a touch of simplicity and openness to your space.

  4. 4. Statement Piece

    Adding a printed statement rug is an amazing way to spice up the solid pieces in your space. If your space is more neutral and you want to brighten up your room, this vintage-inspired Ronan Printed Rug from Urban Outfitters ($59 - $159, urbanoutfitters.com) comes in two colors and adds a whimsical touch to every room! If you want a more balanced area, try mixing and matching neutral pillows and decor pieces to complement the bold colors of this printed rug.

  5. 5. Modern Magic

    Modern living spaces always need a simple, yet classy rug to bring the room together. The classic rug pattern of the Safavieh Hudson Shag Estella Rug ($103.99, overstock.com) is perfect for more urban spaces, while the plush shag pile will add comfort and a sense of luxury to any room. If you want to add more color to your room, tie in some unique modern art pieces to offset the simplicity of this rug.

Whatever style your space is, adding an area rug is a great way to tie a room together and is the perfect place for impromptu dance parties or late-night study sessions.
