Layering rugs is a great way to bring texture and depth to any room. You can use this decorating technique to bring the space together with a larger area rug and then anchor a specific space in the room with a smaller rug. Layering rugs usually consist of a sisal or jute rug as a bottom layer because of their natural, neutral tones that allow you to add a pattern or color on top of it. A popular choice for the top layer rug is an animal hide rug, faux or real. Other popular choices, especially in coastal homes, consist of striped rugs and colorful patterned rugs. Even though sisal and jute rugs are used as a bottom layer more often than others, it doesn’t mean you cannot combine other colors or patterns while layering to create the look you want.
