Layering rugs is the perfect way to bring tons of texture and extra visual interest to your space. You’ll often see a neutral jute rug used as the base of a layered look—but lately, we’ve been seeing more and more spaces that have jutes as both the top and the bottom layer. And we can’t get enough! This move adds so much natural beauty to a space—in line with some of the big rug and design trends we’re seeing in 2022—and couldn’t be easier to pull off. We’ll show you how!
Pick of Pair of Solid Neutrals
Love an all-neutral look? Or worried a layered look will bring too much busyness to your space? Dip your toe into the layering trend by rolling out two solid jute styles. They key to pulling it off is to choose two rugs that feel different enough from each other, whether it’s in color or texture, so they don’t blend in and feel like the same rug.
Go for Pattern on Top
Ready to take your layered jute look to the next level? Then pick a patterned style for the top layer! We absolutely love this look, which is perfect for those who gravitate toward the natural texture of jute but want to add a little something extra with a hint of pattern.
And if you want to take it to the next level after that? Try a pattern on top and bottom. We recommend doing a rug with a small-scale pattern as the bottom layer and one with a larger pattern as the top to keep things from getting too busy. (Psst: Keep reading for our favorite top and bottom rug recs for layering jutes!)

Most people think of neutrals when they think of jute rugs, but we have a ton of styles in our collection in a range of beautiful colors! Roll out your go-to solid jute on the bottom, then add your favorite colorful jute rug on top to create a trifecta of texture, color, and layers.
