What Is Layering Rugs 

Layering rugs have become a highlight in modern decor and we can definitely see why. It helps to define a room while giving it a vibrant color and texture that it needs. Since rugs themselves are so comfortable, why not have two? Layering rugs in your house can take your house space to another level. Using bold patterns and colors can create a unique style and brightens the space up. Layering rugs on a carpet or on a hardwood floor, are two entirely different looks. You can even go for layering rugs on jute which is another classy idea. It’s up to you- you can just go with as many variations as much as you want as long as it makes some sense.

Layering Rugs Over Carpet 

If your home space is capped with wall to wall carpet and your house badly needs a new look, without making changes in the old one, then layering rugs on the carpet is for you. We all know and have experienced how boring a room looks with carpets with the same consistent color and tone. Layered rugs are usually placed under any furniture piece or maybe a couch to give the house an aesthetic and classy look. Layering rugs over a carpet is a thing that needs great consideration. You can't go with the unmatchable colors and make people go 'eww'. So color texturing is very important. Usually, carpets are found in neutral and basic colors, such as beige. As for the fabric used, it’s mostly wool. If this is the case, use an area rug that is different in texture. Layering area rugs in the living room, layer your carpet by adding in a graphic flat weave over a beige carpet. Or if you have something else in mind, make sure that you use contrasting colors and textures. You can go for a nude base layering it with some dark combination of colors. As for the texture, go for sisal/jute/silk or flatweave.

Layering rugs over jute is another way to make your room or living space go boom. The combination of a long size jute layered rug accompanied by a shaggy rug or a number of rugs with white or dark pastel colors makes it look exquisite. To add an exciting feel to your room, play with rugs of different sizes. White-colored cowhide rugs accompanied by a long rectangular shaped jute create the perfect combo. Colorful Round Rugs over a jute rug work just as well. It is also a cheap option for you to use layering rugs over jute.

Benefits For Layer rugs

Defines A Space

If you’re worried about your furniture being too spaced out because of having a large seating area, layered rugs fix it for you. We all know the area rug rule- there should be roughly 10-20 inches of the bare floor in the middle of the edges of the area rug and the wall of the room. However, if this rule doesn't exactly work out for you and your room still feels like it's empty, layering a rug in the center of the room might just add more personality to your room- and even help define it!

Highlighting An Area

If you want a specific part of your room to be highlighted, such as your coffee table or maybe that beautiful piece of furniture you bought, layering a rug is a way to do it. Or if you want to take away the attention of an article that's not so special to you, layering rugs is the perfect way to do it. Make sure to be distinct-adding rugs of contrasting colors and textures.

Sound Barriers 

When a room has no fabrics, the echoes are terrible. Even though adding in a carpet or drapes absorbs the sounds, each additional rug adds more sound absorbing power. So if you have kids that are always running around and making noises, go for it! Or if you’re someone who loves to listen to music on high volumes, layering area rugs are definitely for you. This even creates a more intimate space for conversations.

Worried about your unlaminated floors in winter? Adding in any rug will provide some sort of insulation to you. However, adding in layered rugs is going to create that perfect cozy space that everyone longs for in winters.

How To Layer Rugs?

Now that you know why you should be layering your area rugs, let's get into how to do it! This trend is so easy to do. The following tips are just places to start. Once you begin experimenting with rug layering, you will for sure find the look you love.

How to Layer Rugs?

Start With An Oversized Rug

An oversized rug is the perfect first layer. Or if you have a wall to wall carpet, that works just as well. Just make sure the bottom rug is larger than the area where the furniture is seated. The closer the base carpet is to the walls, the better it is. This will certainly show off that top rug you invested in better. Laura has a very large rug under her entire sectional and chairs. Then, the smaller rug is offset. This design is incredibly appealing and a beautiful way to layer rugs.

Base Rug Is Neutral

When you use a neutral-colored bottom rug, the top layer can be that essential pop of color that makes interior designers smile. Another thing you should keep in mind is that the base rug should be a low pile rug, such as jute and Flatweave Rugs. We highly recommend you not to choose a high pile rug. This is because a high pile rug, such as a shag rug, used as a base rug is just not meant to be. It could end up looking like a total disaster. If you want to use a colorful bottom rug, then make sure the top one compliments the other one.  In fact, I am always using this color combination cheat sheet when I decorate.

Quick Tip: Neutral Soumak rugs are best as bottom rugs.

To enhance the power of your top rug's design, always make the bottom rug a neutral color and the top, small rug, a vibrant and bold one. When you have an amazing rug on the top, you want it to shine! You want people to notice this rug. Our hand-knotted rugs have intricate details that make excellent top layer rugs. You can make this top rug really pop up by buying rugs with bold textures and colors.

Texture - Put a shag rug on top of a short pile rug. Not only does this really make the environment of the room extra comfy, but the different piles bring out and show off the intricate designs on the rug. However, never go for high pile rugs as the base rug.

Color - Our go-to layered rug is an overdyed rug with a neutral faded colored rug. We here at RugKnots, use all-natural vegetable dyes that don't bleed or transfer.

So go bold! Feel free to choose whatever popping color you desire to have from our stunning compilation of rugs. Your color will stay where it should - on the rug. As you can see in Erin's post, her red rug pops underneath the neutral rugs beneath it. I also really enjoy how she set the rugs in different orientations around each other. That pop of color really brings the room together, giving it the personality that it needed. The red color has perfectly complemented the beige base rug. This is another idea on how you can layer your rugs.

Best Rug For Layering

Let's start with the base rug. Jute, wool, and sisal rugs are best for layering rugs. But, wall to wall carpet will also work well. We prefer you to choose neutral colors for base rugs. Gold and shades of brown, blue and black also work well as a base rug. As for the material, you can use silk, cotton, and leather as a top layer rug. Now for patterns and textures, one of the most important things to consider when buying rugs. Geometric rugs as a top layer rug is a good choice. Other than that, you can use shags or novelty rugs too. The top layer should be set in a way that gives you a warm and cozy look at first glance. You can set with a fluffy rug or sheepskin too. You can also opt for zebra shape and printing top rugs with light colors looks stylish and fancy.

Connect Two Rugs Together

Now, when you make up your mind for the right rug your room is in need of, and you’ve spotted one too. But, even after hours of consideration, it wasn't the right size you longed for and now you’re left with a rug that does not coordinate with your top rug. It almost looks like it's invisible!  I can't mess with the size. So, the better option here is to connect two smaller rugs together with the base rug you’ve bought. But the question still remains, how do you connect two rugs together? Keep reading to find out! It's really simple, you just need one main thing; that is a carpet seaming tape (one-sided). You can join the two rugs together and tape it from the backside where both ends of the rugs meet in the middle. You can even connect two different small and same size rugs together to give your room a hippie look. But if you want it to remain simple and natural, leave it as it is.

Design Profile To Follow

It is so much easier to design a room when you have a big picture in mind. Do your research before layering rugs, so that you’re familiar with the terms and types of design portfolios. A few of my favorite design profiles are a modern farmhouse, eclectic, and art deco. There are so many out there, what are your favorite profiles to follow?

Neutrals / Modern Farmhouse

The modern farmhouse look is super popular right now on Instagram. These rooms tend to have more neutrals and whites. This look is great for people who fancy a more natural look than a more vibrant one. Since you’re choosing a neutral look, white or beige will be the more prominent colors. To make the look of the room come together, accompany these colors with gold, brown, tan and grey. In these rooms, Oriental Rugs that are more muted will work best.

Boho/Eclectic

This is one of my favorites! You can read our complete analysis of eclectic decor on our blog post. Go with huge pops of color! You can even layer rugs in a variety of shapes and styles. For eclectic and boho decor, choose busier prints like the Ikat or the Chobi Ziegler. One of the more common ones is layering a vintage rug over a jute rug.

Use Furniture Sparingly

Layering rugs work amazing in all room sizes. But if you have a small room, and want it to look bigger, layering rugs are perfect for you. It also means you don't need any extra furniture in the room too- creating a clutter-free atmosphere. This is a fantastic way to make a room look larger than it is. In fact, when you layer rugs, let the rugs set the entire mood for the room. Sometimes too much furniture can either clutter up space or even cover up the rugs. Ottomans and glass top tables are excellent choices because they are minimalist. Layering rugs underneath your coffee table looks ideal.

How Many Borders To Leave When Layering Rugs?

Taking into account the distance of the top rug from the base rug can be quite a hassle. Since the base rug is quite large, the top rug has to coordinate with the base rug. There should at least be a distance of 12 inches from the edge of the top rug to the base of the rug. Otherwise, the area will feel like it’s cluttered and the base rug will be lost. However, if you’re in doubt, it’s best if you choose the largest base rug there is! If you’re interested in layering more than two rugs, you can add in as many rugs you like to create a fun and hippie look. In this case, there's no need to worry about the amount of border that has to be left. Just do whatever you like!

Pros And Cons Of Layering Rugs

Layering rugs is a great way to add warmth and dimension to your space. Creating different seating areas with layering can also help define the room you’re in! When searching for an area rug that will make your home uniquely yours and reflect who you are as a person or family, layering rugs may just do the trick. Layered rugs work best when one pattern is placed over another subtle design - such as solid colors or patterns with similar designs on them-or natural fiber carpets which provide warmth without sacrificing style!

Pros Of Layering Area Rugs

    1. Layering rugs will provide a visually appealing effect to any large area. Warm-up your space with a layered rug! Place one in the center of the room to help soothe and soften it.
    2. Spills and stains are inevitable in high traffic areas or main living spaces. Thankfully, there's a simple solution for protecting your carpeting: layering an area rug over light-colored wall-to-wall carpeting! This will protect against spills and stains coming into contact with the surface of the floor underneath it.
    3. Layered rugs can be the perfect addition to a hard surface floor- especially concrete floors or tile!
    4. Rugs are perfect for creating an interesting focal point in large and open spaces. You can also use rugs for traffic flow! For example, if you place the rug at one end of your room and then angle it all the way over to another side as far away from that wall as possible before angling back towards where it started- voilà: now there's just enough space between this area and everything else so people won't bump into anything when they walk-by or find themselves accidentally heading straight out through those front doors without even noticing what was on their left-hand side.
    5. Rugs are a versatile way to add more texture or color into your space, and also can serve as the focal point for any room.
    6. Layering rugs is a great way to save money without sacrificing style. Rather than splurge on a big oriental rug, use the sisal or jute as an under layer and add this smaller version of the patterned design over it- you'll still get all the benefits of that beautiful rug with none of its costly price tags!
    7. Layering a designer and patterned rug over carpets is an excellent design solution for someone renting an apartment or house with less than perfect wall-to-wall carpeting. This will provide your space with more depth and visual interest while adding texture to the floor!

    Cons Of Layering Area Rugs

      1. Put all the tough stuff on top. Layering a plush rug over carpet is often problematic as it can cause buckling and trip hazards, but use this to your advantage by adding an extra layer of protection for any potential falls with shag rugs being the prime example so they'll always be soft underfoot!
      2. Layering multiple designs and patterns of rugs together can create a chaotic and messy look if not done accurately! The trick is to use different types of rugs at the same level but in slightly different sizes. Lay some carpet or mats on top for extra texture!

      Frequently Asked Questions About Layering Rugs

      1. How Can We Layer Up Rugs?

      You can layer rugs by placing a rug beneath your main area rug. This is the first layer of rugs and can provide an extra level of insulation underfoot, as well as adding extra comfort for those who spend time on their floor. A second layer could be placed above the main rug to add color or texture - this is often referred to as "rug blankets" and can be a more affordable alternative to purchasing an additional area rug. The third layer would consist of mats - these are typically placed in front of furniture and can be used as footrests or for extra insulation on the floor next to furniture legs. When it comes to layering rugs, there's no one size fits all solution - it's really just about finding the best combination of your needs.

      2. Can You Double Layer Rugs?

      Yes, it is possible to layer two rugs on top of one another. It's important that you take the thickness and style of both into account when determining whether or not they'll work together well - a pile rug will never be able to withstand being layered over an area rug for instance. Double layering rugs are a great way to mix and match patterns, textures, or colors. Layering rugs can be used as footrests or for extra insulation on the floor next to furniture legs. The best rug combination of your needs will depend on two factors: thickness and style.

      3. Is Layering Rugs In Style?

      Yes, this trend is trending now. The ability to layer rugs in a variety of ways allows you to mix patterns and textures for an interesting look or add warmth by placing two layers under furniture legs on the floor. You can even use different colors together like reds and blues if you want more color contrast as well! This approach also works well for pets with allergies.

      4. What Size Rug Should You Layer Over 8x10?

      You can layer a rug that is from the same size or larger over an existing one. Layering rugs is tricky. There's no black and white answer to the question of whether you should go bigger or smaller than your 8x10 rug. It depends on a lot of factors including how much space do you have in the room, what color scheme are going with? What else will be occupying that floor area? You can't just take two measurements - one for your bottom layer and another for the top - then divide them by 2 because it doesn't work like that! The key is finding something visually appealing with enough asymmetry without being too drastic.

      5. How Can We Layer A Rug Over A Carpet?

      Layering rugs over the carpeting can be a little more difficult because you're adding an extra layer to the rug that already exists in your space, so take into consideration what's going on there before jumping right in! There are some ways of making it work, though. Find a rug that has the same texture as your carpet and layer it over top of the area you want to be covered with little concern for the edges matching up perfectly. The idea is to use it more like a border than anything else - try not to think of it as one large rug that's covering two separate areas because that's where you're going to get your mismatched edges. Another option is to use a non-thick rug and lay it over the carpeting in an area without any furniture that might need to be moved around, later on, this way when the time comes for moving the furniture, you'll just pick up the rug and move it out of the way for a few minutes.

      6. What Type Of Rug Is Best For Carpets?

      You can use any type of rug for carpets, but the best choice is one that's made from nylon or polyester because it will be durable and won't show dirt easily. The ideal rugs are those with a flat pile that doesn't show dust and debris as easily when they're enrolled on the rug. An important thing to keep in mind is that the pattern should be on a weave, not an open back so you can see through it and vacuum right up against it without having your vacuum cleaner pick up any of the patterns from below. If you're looking for affordable rugs with good durability, go with polyester or nylon. Polyester and nylon are the best choices for carpet rugs because they're durable and can't be easily vacuumed up by a regular vacuum cleaner. The pattern needs to be on a weave, not an open back so you don't carry patterns from below your floor rug into other parts of your home via the vacuum cleaner.

      7. How Do You Layer The Top Of A Jute Rug?

      Place a cotton rug on top of the jute rug for softness and comfort, or place felt pads over the bottom corners to protect your floor from scratches. Lay another cotton rug, thin carpeting, or an area mat on top of it if you want more cushioning when walking across it; this also helps with noise. If you want to add a little texture and pattern, place either an area rug or a small cotton runner over the top of your jute carpet. Area rugs work best in high-traffic areas; runners can be used as decorative accents. We have also begun using these types of items for outdoor situations such as patios and decks because they can be easily moved to another location.

      8. What Size Rug Should I Layer?

      The size of the rug should relate to the type and amount of traffic it is expected to bear, as well as how much you want it visible in your room decor. For a smaller area, use one that measures about four feet by six feet; for larger spaces opt for rugs at least eight or more square feet in size. We should know what size to buy for layering by measuring the space we want to cover. If you want to layer multiple rugs of different sizes, think about how you're going to use the space. If it's a bedroom for instance, then layering two or three similar-sized area rugs will be perfect. For other areas, like living rooms where furniture arrangement varies depending on people and what they want to do in that room. If they want to stretch out on the couch, then a smaller rug is better.

      9. How To Maintain Layered Area Rugs?

      Layered area rugs are easy to maintain. All you need is the right vacuum or a broom and dustpan for smaller spills. Vacuum it thoroughly, then shake off any dust bunnies that may have gotten caught in your rug while doing so. For larger areas of dirt on your carpet, use a washcloth dipped into soap and water, then scrub away. It is necessary to clean your rugs at least once a month to avoid any buildup of dirt and grime.

      10. Is Rug Layering Worth The Investment?

      Yes! If you want to enhance the interior design of your house and create a unique and bold statement, then layer rugs are the answer. Patterned layer rugs will bring a gorgeous and faux bohemian vibe into your home. You will surely enjoy the new look and feel that these rugs will provide. In short, it is a great way to invest in your house.

      11. Do Layered Rugs Need A Rug Pad?

      Yes! You need a rug pad to keep the rugs in place and avoid them from bunching up. It will also help your layered rugs stay clean for longer as it provides protection against dirt, spills, stains, and other debris that could potentially ruin the look of your floor. A rug pad will also help to extend the life of your rug. The best way to measure for a rug pad is by measuring from the outer edge on one side, then across and up to the opposite corner. This will provide you with an accurate measurement for both sides of your room.

      12. What Is A Cowhide Rug?

      A cowhide rug is a type of layered rug that has been made from woven leather or suede. These rugs will vary in style and price depending on the materials used to make them, but they are typically very durable. You will surely love the way they can look in your room, and because of their versatility, you should not have any trouble finding a place to put them. If you want to make your space look more luxurious, then this is definitely a rug you should consider. As it turns out, cowhide rugs might be the perfect thing to add to your home. They are very durable and will last for years if they are taken care of properly. However, these types of rugs can vary in price depending on how they have been made with the materials used, but they will typically be on the cheaper side. You should not have any trouble finding a place to put these rugs in your home because of their versatility and all of the different looks you can achieve with them.

      If you're looking for big savings on the quality wool rug, chances are your local showroom isn't going to be the answer. A lot of rug dealers charge extra because they have employees and a space where they need to maintain their inventory during business hours in order to provide customer service when customers come into the store.
