Rugs and design trends
Layering is a design trend that’s become increasingly popular over the past few years. This involves homeowners placing a smaller rug atop a larger one to add texture and blend shapes, styles, and colors. This is a wonderful way to experiment and express your creativity.
You may want to use an oriental rug but only have a small size. For example, this Kazak Green 4×6 Oriental Rug. By layering, you can feature this rug in a larger space. You can layer this small oriental rug by pairing it with a modern carpet like this Braided Jute Rug. Natural fibers and colors blend well with the intricate design on the oriental rug. This allows it to look large in the room without being too small.
Natural Colors and Fibers
By 2022, more people will want their homes to reflect nature. Modern rugs in earth tones with neutral colors and natural fibers are the best way to achieve this. Rugs.com has become a popular place to buy rugs made of jute and cotton.

Durable and Washable Rugs
The 2022 rug trend is practicality. In the past few years, people have spent more time at home and therefore taken a closer view of their rugs. Home decorators want to fill the space with beautiful rugs that will anchor the room. Many have decided, however, that rugs must also be functional to justify their use. Modern rugs should be durable and washable.
Washable Rugs give you a feeling of security because they can be thrown into the washing machine to clean if they become stained. They are durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic by humans and animals. Durable and washable outdoor rugs can be used in mudrooms or other areas of the house.
