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:

GO GEO

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 FIBERS

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 MOTIF

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.

 

STRIKING STRIATIONS

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.

Brand New: A Look at the new Mohawk Floors

I thought I’d share a big full reveal though in it’s own post and show you the rest of the home. I think it’s pretty clear the before and after is pretty drastic, don’t you think? You can see the before of the dining and kitchen here. To say that I’m pleased, is an understatement. I absolutely love my new Mohawk ArmorMax floors for more than the obvious reason of them looking great.

My old floors had a very loud hallow sound to them and anytime I walked in heels, or even Pork walked around, it was very loud in the house. Now with these new hardwood floors from Mohawk, I barely hear Pork creeping up on me to beg for food. She’s like a ninja. I was nervous about darker floors as they tend to show scratches and any wear and tear more so than light ones. I have worn my high heels in the house, Pork has run around like a maniac, and not one scratch at all. The ArmorMax technology is tough and durable and designed for high traffic areas.

It’s definitely safe to say that I’m pretty pleased with the before and after and am so glad I made the switch. The process (which you can read more about here and here) was easy and seamless.  Now I have a full Mohawk home as my bedroom carpet is also Mohawk. If you’re looking for carpet, I recommend the Smartstrand Silk as it literally feels like silk. I find myself sitting on the floor with Pork for way longer than I normally should.

If you’re looking to do a little home renovating and updating your floors, this is a quick project (roughly 2-3 days) and makes a huge difference in the overall look and feel of your home.

This post was written in collaboration with Mohawk. All opinions and views are my own.
