Have you ever tried layering rugs before?! It's a great trick when styling with multiple smaller rugs, trying to cover lots of space, or when you want to define separate areas all within one room. Here are a few of our favorite ways to do it!

Layering multiple rugs! Here, we layered three rugs to add texture and color to the room. We used one large rug under the table to define the dining area, and then we used two smaller rugs to differentiate the seating area in the corner.

Layering rugs to define a space! This is a great example of using several rugs to cover one large area while also defining different spaces. This is a home office turned guest room when needed. The daisy rug helps signify the bedroom when the couch is pulled out, and the circle rugs help define the office portion of the room.

Layering rugs on top of each other! For this room, we layered a smaller circle rug under a large rectangle rug to cover more space. When layering rugs, we love to mix in different rug shapes, textures, and colors. The trick is to make sure they compliment each other but are different enough to make a statement.

Layering rugs in a kids' room! Here, we took two rugs and laid one on top of the other diagonally. This is a fun way to separate the bedroom from the play area in the middle of the room. The middle rug is also a much softer texture which is perfect for kids!

Layering rugs for texture! This woven rug brings in lots of colors while covering tons of space. We wanted to balance out all the color, though, so we added in a smaller, neutral faux fur rug on top. It makes a cozy spot for kids to sit on the floor and play!

Layering rugs with patterns! For this living room, we used two rugs that incorporate patterns. We tucked part of the smaller rug beneath the large rectangle rug so that it's not totally covered but the two are still connected.
