Area rugs can make the design difference you need

They might be small, but area rugs are big powerhouses. First, they can tie all the design elements of a room together to make one cohesive interior design plan. Then, use them to create statement pieces.
Big, bright, and bold
Right now, one of the biggest trends in soft surfaces is to “live out loud.” That’s the official name for maximalism.
It's a trend to express creativity through flooring, especially in soft surface styles. Colors are vivid and are often jewel tones, such as red, purple, orange, green, etc.
Carpet patterns are large and loud, especially with today's digital patterning. It can sometimes be a little too much when it is wall-to-wall.
The solution is more neutral, with a bright area rug layered in.
And speaking of too much
Did you go all in and find the carpet overly patterned or too bright? Quiet it down with an area rug in a neutral color palette.
Get creative with carpet tiles
They come in many fiber types, from nylon to wool. Because of their thickness, they're a little more water-resistant and deaden sound better.
Select a bunch of these and combine them to create one unique area rug. You can even have area rugs arranged in layouts like the herringbone pattern, which is trending again.
