Larger rugs can definitely cost a pretty penny. If you’re looking to go the cost-effective route, try investing in a smaller rug you love, then layering it on top of a coordinating larger and cheaper rug. The end result is just as luxe–and won’t zap your decor budget.
Solid colors work well as a base layer, but it’s also fun to experiment with textures like a woven or jute rug as well. Don’t worry about the shapes matching perfectly! Even a freeform shape like a natural cowhide looks lovely over a larger square or rectangular rug.
