DIY Tip – How to Improve the Look of Floors by Layering Rugs

Ashley Kaminski, buyer for American Furniture Warehouse, who offers some decorating tips on layering rugs. She says:

  1. The first thing to consider is the base layer. The base should be thinner in texture, larger in size and neutral in color. The base layer can have subtle pattern.
  2. The top layer or accent layer should bring in thicker texture as well as color and pattern to coordinate with the base layer.
  3. Have fun with the space. Don’t be afraid to bring in some angles and/or contrasting color or pattern to fit your unique space and create a focal point.
