Shapes and patterns give rugs a special kind of depth that adds to the dimensions of your room. These rugs can make a room look wider, longer, taller, or give texture to hardwood floors. The colors themselves enhance the room, but the shapes on a rug make the style of your room pop. Geometric rugs often have many shapes, colors, and patterns on them. They can be as loud as you want or as muted as you want.
Many people associate geometric patterns on rugs with a more modern look, but this doesn’t have to be the case. A geometric rug can come with stripes, shapes, borders, and even lifted designs. They can fit in any style of the room, whether you’re going for a traditional atmosphere, want a minimalist, modern vibe, or prefer something a little edgier.
Spin the Playful Wheel of Geometric Rugs
Geometric rugs are not limited to one kind of shape or pattern. They can fit in many styles and reflect different concepts and ideas. Here are some of the many forms of geometric rug for you and your family to try at home.
Textured: These rugs have different shapes that are lifted above the rest of the piece, adding more texture, more softness, depth, or just that extra pop that draws the eye into the room. If you’re looking to fill an empty space and make a big floor look a little smaller, a textured geometric rug can add that element of cozy to make a room looking more inviting.
This Mandy Textured Geometric Area Rug found at Rugs USA plays off the shapes of the furniture in your room and adds a comfy look.
Multi-shape: Geometric rugs don’t have to simply have one shape or pattern on them. If you’re looking to bring more lines and arches to your room, a multi-shape geometric rug can lead eyes to different areas of the room.
This Abby Washable Geometric Area Rug comes with crescents and rectangles gently designed to stand out ever so slightly from the rest of the piece. Onlookers will notice the subtle curves and angles on this rug.
Banded: Banded rugs look more symmetrical, often with stripes and patterns that mirror each side until it reaches the center of the rug. These rugs can give your room that feeling that comes with dropping a pebble in a pond with their ripple effect. Often, they can help make a small room feel just a little stretched out and roomier.
This Geometric Banded Area Rug found at Rugs USA gives the room a roomier feeling and offers pleasing symmetry to the eye.
Striped: Striped rugs don’t have to just be simple stripes, but they can be. Other forms of striped rugs have patterns within the stripes, adding an extra layer to the overall look of the piece. Stripes on a rug can make a room stand out, add a fun design to a room with bright colors, or even contrast with square or round furniture.
This Multi Striped Geometric Area Rug found at Rugs USA has a faded look which makes it pair well with vivid colors or bold furniture.
Chevron: Chevron rugs take a playful interpretation of the striped rug and add their own personality to the room. These rugs look almost kaleidoscopic if the chevrons come with many colors and go in different directions. Or they can simply look muted and neutral, but with a fun wave to them that adds character to your floor.
This Radiant Chevrons Area Rug, found at Rugs USA, mesmerizes viewers with its many colors and directions that point to different parts of the room.
Moroccan: A Moroccan rug gives texture and softness to a room. Paired with a unique geometrical design, these rugs can really stand out and add personality to a room with neutral tones. They can also stand their ground among bright colors.
This Moroccan Geometric Area Rug, found at Rugs USA, can fit anywhere with its simple colors and bold design.
Try a Geometric Rug in Your Hallway
Geometric rugs can fit into any room of any style, but we recommend putting a geometric rug in your hallway. The shapes can pull eyes across a long hallway and emphasize the other side. Lines can make a short hallway look longer and more elegant, while other shapes can make a long hallway look shorter and pull the eye to sources of light.
The Black Scandinavia Diamond Area Rug, found at Rugs USA in many sizes that include a hallway runner, can play with light coming from windows in your hallway, or add light of its own with its white shapes on a black background. It whimsically points hallway travelers to the other direction, as if to guide them on their way.
Introduce Explosions of Color
There’s nothing like brightening a room with colors woven into a geometric rug. Whether you’re looking to help a bold rug transition well into a room with contrasting colors, soften the approach of a playful, vibrant design, or make a rug set the tone for the room, don’t forget to look at the colors!
This Multi Wool Geometric Area Rug takes a fun and energetic design and brings in neutral tones to help it transition to any kind of room. It also uses some of the shapes to add dashes and sprinkles of bright color, making this rug a piece for any style.
