Struggling to choose just one pattern or texture? Or is your heirloom rug too small for your living room? This is why the layered look is back! It is a great way to use your existing rugs, while also having fun with textures and styles. However, it is important to get this look right. Before you begin layering rugs, consider your space.

While a kitchen might seem like a dangerous place for a rug, it can be a wonderful way to added colour to a neutral space.
