Rugs are inherently cozy, thanks to their ability to soften up floors (literally and figuratively!). But some rugs are cozier than others—and fall is the perfect time to roll out one (or two) to make your space feel comfy and warm. Keep scrolling to see how to bring a fresh layer to your space with our collection of cozy rugs.
Say Yes to Shags
The higher the pile, the cozier the rug! For the ultimate soft experience, we recommend rolling out a shag rug. They’re especially great in bedrooms, kid’s rooms, and anywhere else you might be walking around with bare feet. Plus, they add the perfect amount of texture that makes any room feel more layered and interesting.
Go Big on Cozy Rugs with Texture
With texture as plush and cozy as this, we only have one question: Why wouldn’t you want to roll out a textured rug in your home? Featuring carved details and varying pile heights, these styles pack in even more texture than the usual shags.
Try Out Layers
The only thing better than one rug is two—which is why we’re endlessly obsessed with layering two styles together. It’s an easy way to bring extra pattern, color, and texture to a space and to create that cozy, lived-in, collected vibe we can’t get enough of. If you want to try it out, we recommend adding a jute or natural fiber rug underneath an existing style. We promise you’ll love it!
Accent with Faux Sheepskins and Hides
One of our favorite ways to up the ante on the cozy is with faux sheepskins and hides—some of the softest, comfiest rug options out there! They’re easy to incorporate into any space. Truly! Throw one on the end of your bed (or to the side for an extra-plush wakeup experience for your feet), on the back of a couch, on a bench, at the foot of your favorite chair… you get the picture!
Soften Up an Overlooked Spot with Cozy Rugs
While it’s great to soften larger rooms with cozy rugs, we love the idea of rolling one out in overlooked or unexpected areas, too. Think a hallway, a vacant corner, tiny nooks, or any areas in your home that feel like they could use a little more coziness and definition. It’s an especially great move in generous open-floor plan spaces if you’re not quite sure how to use up all your space.
