12 Statement Area Rugs That I Am Obsessed With

*This post contains affiliate links*

If you read my most recent post, then you know we are building our first home! Like most girls my age, I grew up playing The Sims like it was my actual job! Now I get to bring all of those lessons in interior design into the real world.

I’ve always been a fan of hardwood floors, and with pets, carpet is just asking for a mess. That being said, I have an obsession with rugs, and I don’t want any help for it! I’ve gathered up a few of my favorite statement area rugs to add a little bit of decor inspo to your day!

The rules of area rugs

Something that I have found out over the actual design planning of this process has been the rule of rugs! Your perfect rug should sit underneath your furniture. If you’re purchasing a rug for your living room, then you don’t have to have it completely under your furniture, but it should extend beyond the front of the piece.

Don’t be afraid of a big rug! While the price tag on a large rug can be scary, if you don’t buy what you love, then you’ll actually end up spending more money. Trust me, I have first-hand experience with this! When I was looking at rugs the other day, the sales associate said something that really made sense to me, and that was “a rug is cheaper than carpeting a room“!

A statement rug is a unique way to add some extra flavor to a room. A fun color or pattern can be a great way to show your unique style. Since rugs tend to be large, it can also act as a conversation piece!

My top picks!
