A rug has the power to transform a space from ordinary to extraordinary, acting as both a practical and aesthetic cornerstone. Whether your style leans towards minimalism, maximalism, or somewhere in between, Wayfair stands as a treasure trove with the perfect rug awaiting discovery. As one of Livingetc’s favorite shopping platforms, Wayfair boasts an extensive rug selection that exceeds expectations. After a thorough exploration of their offerings, I've curated a Wayfair editor’s choice selection that leaves no design preference behind. If you're on the hunt for a new rug, your search ends here.

As noted by interior designer Alexandra Cooper, rugs play a dual role in a room, helping “to anchor the furniture in a room,” define desired focal points, and “tie together various elements in a space to create a cohesive look.” Plus, there are so many different styles of rugs, providing a unique opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone. In fact, potter and designer Jonathan Adler encourages a fearless approach, dismissing design rules altogether and urging individuals to choose from the best rugs they love, emphasizing that “If you love something, it will work.” He suggests starting your decor design with “a bold rug – you won’t look back.”

How Should I Style My Rug?

Rug placement can feel like a daunting task. It involves creating harmony with the other objects in your space, which is easier said than done! Thankfully, interior designer Alexandra Cooper offered a few helpful rules of thumb:

1. "Keeping in mind the size and proportions of a rug is important to ensure the rug is appropriately sized for the room and the furniture it anchors. A too-small rug can make the space feel disjointed, while a properly sized rug will unify the elements. Make sure that the rug is large enough to accommodate the main furniture pieces, such as sofas and chairs. Ideally, all the furniture legs should be on the rug or at least the front legs."

2. "The shape of the room can influence the rug shape. For instance, a rectangular rug often works well in a square room, while a round rug can complement a circular space. Choose a rug shape that complements the arrangement of furniture. A round rug can work well under a circular dining table, for example."

3. "Choose a rug that suits the function of the space. For high-traffic areas, opt for durable materials, while in a bedroom, a plush and comfortable rug may be more appropriate."

4. "Pay attention to the color palette. The rug should harmonize with the existing colors in the room, either by complementing or contrasting them."

Hopefully, now you feel confident to style your rug yourself, but be sure to bookmark this page should you want to reference these helpful tips later.
