Hardwood or Wood-Look Flooring

When choosing the perfect area rug for your hardwood floors, it’s important to take note of the color tones and grain patterns of the wood. Hardwood is uniquely beautiful for its versatile array of colors and patterns. Highlight, don’t conceal, your floors with an area rug! 

We recommend rugs that compliment the colors of your floors – warm red hues for warmer woods, and cooler blues or greens for a more neutral or ashy wood. Pair darker rugs with light floors like white oak, and lighter rugs with dark hardwood like ebony. Clever pairing of rugs and colors can help define different spaces in a room or make your home feel more spacious. Vintage or Turkish rugs pair well with hardwood, creating a look that’s full of personality. For hardwood that has a striking grain pattern, solid-color rugs are always a stylish choice.

When working with wood-look floors, like laminate or luxury vinyl, just adhere to the same design guides! Since many wood-look floors are indistinguishable from the real thing, there’s no need to alter your style choices. 

Natural Stone Flooring

If you have natural stone flooring in your home, you probably don’t want to conceal the beautiful colors and patterns within. You might be able to get away with a patterned rug when working with more muted natural stones, like slate and sandstone. For marble and granite, however, a solid rug works best. It’s also important to consider the color tones of your floors! Cool-toned white marble or black granite will pair beautifully alongside a neutral white or gray rug. Warm sandstone and travertine will look beautiful with a cream rug.

Porcelain and Ceramic Tile

If there is porcelain or ceramic tile in your home, it mostly likely covers the floor of your bathroom, mudroom, or kitchen. While porcelain and ceramic are durable, low-maintenance, and waterproof, they’re not always the most comfortable. The right area rug can change that! When finding the perfect area rug for these tiles, it’s important to find a rug that’s easy to clean and won’t be ruined by water exposure. 

For patterned or multicolored tiles, a solid-colored rug or bath mat will work well. Similarly, solid or white tile can find their perfect match in a colorful, patterned rug.
