The photo above shows a nice example of layering a low pile rug topped with a smaller cream fur rug. The combination of the two adds texture and a warm cozy feel to the space. Notice the sizes are working together and one is not competing with the other, creating a cohesive balance to the room.

Using a jute rug for your base rug, topping it with a hide allows you to create the feeling of a larger seating area with the highlight being the hide. This layering effect uses the second rug as an anchor the your seating area. you can use any type of smaller rug to achieve this look just pay attention to the pile heights.

The foundation of the room is obviously very important, because it affects what style you’re going for from the colors on the wall to the chandeliers to the flooring. What’s very in right now is an industrial style that has metal backbone and much wood. A wrought-iron chandelier is a great accent piece for this style. You can also try a wooden paneled dining room table with possibly bench style seating. This has a way of looking rough, but upscale all at the same time.

To give your walls a little additive that gives the room an updated look, you can install bead board around the lower part of the walls. This would work well with a mixture of styles if you really can’t decide what you would like. Which that means it’s perfect for everyone!

We all love open floor plans, but sometimes, we can’t distinguish between each room if they’re all combined into one. We have a trick to solve this problem: use a rug to separate which items belong in which “room.” Have a dining room rug and a living room rug. It helps when the home is structured so nice and open.
