Small bursts of fashion, design, and color can do so much to a room that desperately needs color, lines, shapes, or something to cover up a mess. The cozy corner is a concept that can be built into any room’s design, whether it’s a small seating area, a pet bed, a prized plant, or a reading corner for the kids. They thrive with throw rugs that accentuate—literally, as accent rugs—the best in these areas. These little corners can come with incredible amounts of style packed into a tiny space, allowing the eyes to rest for a minute before moving on to the rest of the room.

Throughout the centuries, designers and homemakers have extolled the virtues of the throw rug, a smaller rug with a pattern, texture, or color that brings a bit of joy into an atmosphere. The bohemian design relies on rugs scattered on the walls, the furniture, tables, chairs, ottomans, and hanging over windows for artistic relief. These kinds of rugs act as decorative ivy to your garden of style; they only emphasize that you are a paragon of taste who knows how to keep your home comfortable and delightful all at once. Kitchen throw rugs, throw rugs for living room, and throw rugs for bedroom all belong in your home to make it a temple to your sense of style.
Kitchen Throw Rugs: Both Fashion and Functionality
Throw rugs in the kitchen serve a practical purpose as well as a stylish one. You can cover up stains that won’t go away, sticky spots that won’t come off, or parts of the floor that the dog messed up while playing. Lay a throw rug under a set of bar stools to create an eating space that invites and hides crumbs simultaneously.
Accent rugs in the kitchen make for refreshing areas in a sea of busywork. Do you have a leftover space behind your kitchen door leading to your deck? Don’t stress–a basket, a throw rug, and a small plant later, and you’ve created a little oasis to hold all the deck pillows in when it’s raining outside.
Your kitchen is usually the epicenter of the hustle and bustle, especially during meal prep times and meals. But you can still create a calm escape in a corner with a rocking chair, a throw rug, and a small side table to sit and relax at while you watch your meatloaf or keep an eye on your marinara. Work on a craft or watch some television while you wait and rest your eyes on a throw rug like this Moroccan Diamond Area Rug in ivory, which can come in the smallest size, like 2×3 or 3×5.
Where Throw Rugs for Living Rooms Become Accent Rugs
That gorgeous futon you found online and those hand-carved end tables deserve to have their accent rugs that speak to their beauty and functionality. If you’ve found the perfect throw rug for your living room, frame it by placing it on top of a rug made from wool, natural seagrass, or jute. The contrast in texture brings out the best in furniture, especially if you pair a soft couch with a brisk sisal rug or a sharp coffee table with a soft, fluffy shag throw rug made from wool or cotton. And what’s super cool is that you can throw an accent rug on the armchair or under it for just the right dash of stylishness.
Throw rugs make it so that you can incorporate a wild or bold pattern without having to commit to it in the rest of the room. A small Jewel Tone Floral Printed Rug can enhance a table, a bookshelf, or a dining room hutch that displays your crystal decanters but is small enough to blend into the rest of your room’s decor. The point of a throw rug is to give a taste of another style, a glimpse of opportunity, or a flash of light.
Accent rugs in the living room help to accentuate the already existing style. They can also help complete the room’s tone, show its theme, or bring in a complementary contrast. Rugs like this Abstract Waterfall 4′ x 6′ Area Rug in pink can bring a dash of the contemporary to a space designed with a traditional style.
Snuggle to Sleep with Throw Rugs for Bedrooms
Your bedrooms deserve little corners of style and designations for dressing, fixing your hair, or getting ready to fall asleep. With a stylish mid-century modern chair, a mirror, and a throw rug, you can have a spot to work on your appearance, knit yourself a scarf, or read a page-turner before you drift off to dreamland. With the right environment, you can empower yourself to complete anything.
Throw rugs can give any room a sheen of sophistication, regardless of what materials you’ve used in the decor. A small plush rug or flokati has the power to upgrade your fireplace into a hearth, while a tiny Persian-inspired round rug enhances the look of your nightstand that sits in front of your bedroom window. Elevate the curves and swerves in your room with a graceful medallion throw rug that sits under a standing lamp with a basket of books, ready to be a reading nook or a meditation spot.
Throw rugs allow you to introduce unique shapes and high piles of fluff into a room to bring out the best of it. Sheepskin rugs, cowhide rugs, and even faux skin rugs that are made to look like exotic animals can draw an individual into your hidden nook and give it an adventurous flair—whether draped over furniture or laid out artfully on your floor.
