4 – Large floral

Floral textiles can create beautiful movement and variation in a space, and that holds true with area rugs as well. With a massive floral print area rug, your room will burst with both movement and mood. Choose a more subtle shade range for a less attention pulling look, and sharper contrasts for a look that draws attention to the floor.

5 – Traditional styles in bright colors

One way to add flair to any space, from traditional to contemporary is to take a traditional area rug pattern and mix-it-up in a dynamic new color palette. Not only does this bring a fresh flavor to an expected look, it can open up traditional spaces to new and exciting textiles and even wall art without completely deviating from traditional styles.

6 – Statement art

This isn’t your grandma’s area rug. Statement art rugs can come in many looks and flavors with everything from portraits to more abstract looks. Here, a black-and-white cheetah is shown on a bright, beautiful green background to drive home the power such a look can hold. Your only limit is your imagination as this rug style has become more prominent and many interesting pieces are available at a variety of price points.

7 – Traditional rugs in pastel

Traditional rug styles are constantly being reinvented, like this lovely traditional persian-style rug done in coral and acorn pastels. Pastel rugs can create a softened, dreamy foundation for a room, and can be particularly pleasing paired with medium tone flooring to offer a sort of delicate oasis in the middle of a room. Paired with even lighter furniture, pastel rugs can become the focal point of a room, or paired with darker or patterned furniture, can become a soft canvas for the rest of your decor.

8 – Radiating pattern

This sun style area rug pattern creates an incredible visual radiating out from a central point. Positioned perfectly in this room, it gives the illusion that sunlight has created an incandescent bright spot on the floor. The visual power of this look can be fun to play with in any space.

9 – Animal print

Don’t panic at the thought. Animal prints are not what they once were. Using contrasting or more subtle variations can bring your animal print rug to the forefront or send it into a background role, depending on what works best for your room. These prints provide rich texture and visual interest in any textile.
