Top rug trends for 2020

Unlike carpet and tiles, rugs can be easily added to a room to bring your interiors up to date with the latest trends. With this in mind, here are the latest rug trends that are set to be big in 2020.

Statement designs

Bold patterns, prints, and colours will be influencing interior design in a big way this year. A statement rug is the perfect way to brighten up any space, especially if you have large areas of wood or stone flooring you’d like to cover. Match the colours of your rug to different tones on cushions and artwork on your walls to tie everything together nicely, or opt for something bright and colourful to add drama to a monochrome bathroom.

Contrasting textures

Textures remain as popular as ever and are great for adding warmth to a room. Think textural weaves, thick loops, and thick shag piles, and don’t be afraid to layer. It’s all about building texture, whether you add a thick, luxurious rug to a hard wooden floor or layer up several tasseled rugs to add colour and depth.

Antique look and feel

Antique-style rugs are becoming increasingly popular, particularly those with ethnic or Turkish-inspired designs. It’s easy to feel wary of clashing prints or worry about the space looking too “busy”, but it’s surprisingly easy to incorporate this style of rug into your home. Pick out one of the accent colours and match with cushions, throws, or even plant pots to create a warm, welcoming space.

Sustainability

Sustainability is now playing a big role in all our lives and the great news is that lots of rug designers are now using more environmentally friendly products. Natural materials such as wool, hemp, and jute are not only much better for the environment, but they also help create add earthy tones to your home. Plus, they’re usually much better quality than rugs made with synthetic materials such as acrylic and polyester.
