Wall To Wall Carpet Styles That Make Great Area Rugs

For many of us, new flooring is simply not always in reach. However, this doesn’t mean you have to neglect your floors. Layering with an area rug is the perfect way to add warmth, dimension and interest to a room, and an easy way to keep your home on trend at a price that won’t break the bank. Our recommendation for finding the perfect area rug? Find a wall to wall (or broadloom) carpet you love, and have it cut and bound to your ideal dimensions. Insider tip: Depending on the size you’re looking for, you may be able to utilize a carpet remnant, saving yourself even more money. We’ve compiled 12 of our favorite wall to wall carpets that would make beautiful, on trend area rugs:


Geometric designs are everywhere in interiors and for good reason. Adding a geometric rug not only adds interest to a design, but is a wonderful way to break up an open concept layout to define an individual room or space. Dip your toe into this trend by opting for a subtle design within a neutral color family.



Natural textiles and materials continue to make waves in the world of interior design and flooring has not been left behind. We’re seeing an increase in the amount of styles that evoke the look of naturally fibers like jute and sisal. Not only is this design extremely approachable, but it also nurtures a sense of well-being a comfort.



Mosaic-style design is one of this year’s top trends in flooring, and what better way to dabble than with an area rug. With so many colors and patterns, the options are endless for a mosaic-style area rug.



Combining organic textural qualities with luxurious, lustrous accents, area rugs are mimicking the natural characteristics of wood and stone, making the perfect pair for rustic hardwood and matte tile flooring. This trending construction is achieved with an increasing use of striations along with blends of beige, gold, gray and taupe fibers.

Love Your Floor with Cut And Bound Rugs

If you’re not in the market for wall-to-wall carpet, there’s an easy way to add some extra comfort to your rooms and hallways. Think about having a custom-sized rug, or cut and bound rug, made from one of your favorite carpet styles. Whether patterned or your favorite solid shade, a rug can serve as the ideal solution to many different home situations.

Rugs are the perfect, inexpensive way to indulge your home in the latest trend, without committing long-term to a particular design or bold color. Think Mohawk hardwood or laminate flooring with ArmorMax finish underneath a bold-colored area rug with a symmetrical design. That softness adds a cozy feel while still remaining elegant, also lending resiliency and layers of texture. Match the color of your rug to the color of fabric on the furniture or drapery for an overall finished design. A stair runner will achieve the same visual effect, help prevent slips and falls, and become an insulator for a noisy high traffic area.

See, today’s cut and bound rugs do more than add style, they serve! A custom rug made from Mohawk SmartStrand Forever Clean provides the maximum carpet protection against stains and spills as well as All Pet Protection and Warranty– the only pet-friendly carpet protection system that covers all pets, all accidents, all the time! Thanks to the built-in Nanoloc™ spill and soil shield, a SmartStrand Forever Clean rug:

  • Repels liquid and boasts a 0% moisture absorption rate.
  • Reduces pet odors from the carpet fiber forever.
  • Vacuums dirt, fur and pet dander 3x easier than nylon.

Who said you have to stick to one flooring style in your home or even in the same room? There are many ways to pair multiple flooring types for a stylish look. With a little bit of planning, you can use the different textures to create the perfect feel that’s all your own. A cut-and-bound SmartStrand Forever Clean rug from Mohawk will add the perfect pop of softness and color to any room whether it’s a tile bathroom, a hardwood hallway and everywhere in between.
