A great rug can really make a room feel complete. It anchors the space (so the furniture doesn't feel like it's floating) and is the perfect opportunity to add some fun color and pattern to neutral decor. Not to mention the fact that an area rug warms up the look of everything, giving couch hangout time an even more cozy and hygge-inspired vibe.
Looking for extra durability and a lower price point? Choose an indoor/outdoor rug! They're built to withstand more wear and tear than the average floor covering and are super forgiving when it comes to pets, food spills, and the random red wine stain that always seems to appear when your best friend is around. It used to be that outdoor rugs always had a super plastic, utilitarian feel—but not so anymore. New technology and materials means that many versions of these rugs feel just as soft as ones that are strictly for indoors. In general, indoor/outdoor rugs are going to have more of a flatweave, thinner texture, but you can add always add a rug pad underneath to create more cushioning. And the best thing? You can swap it out for your patio the next time you're having an outdoor party.
