It’s not unnatural for people to get a little bored with their home décor from time to time. After a while, we all want to add some changes to our home and freshen it up a little bit. But this doesn’t mean you have to do a big expensive redecorating project that will take a lot of time and effort. Sometimes a little change can make a huge difference in the way your home looks. Well, one of the ways to enhance your home’s look is with unique rug designs. If you pick the right rug, it can completely transform the way your home looks and change its vibe. They can make it seem more modern or cozier, depending on the kind of rug you choose. This can be a little difficult for those who aren’t naturally gifted at décor, so we made a little list of some interesting rug design ideas.

Unique rug design ideas

  • Bold fiery colors
  • A striking pattern
  • Add an emotional touch
  • Play with different shapes
  • Fluffy is always good

Go bold color

Our homes should reflect who we are because that is what makes them distinctly our homes. Well, you can express yourself through the rug you choose. And if you are a bold, fearless person, let the rug show that. A bold-colored rug is a straightforward yet effective way to enhance the look of your home. And that is highly modern today. We live in a day and age where it’s all about being bold and authentic with your décor. A fiery red rug can give that daring look to a room. Make the rug a centerpiece, the first thing people notice when they walk into a room. The simple addition of a bold rug like this can transform any boring, dull room into a fresh modern one. Just know that if you go that bold with the rug’s color, be a bit more subtle with the rest of the décor in the room.

A custom-made pattern is one of the unique rug design ideas 

Striking pattern

Color is not the only thing you can change; you should also play around with different creative patterns of your rug. A creative, surprising pattern can make any room immediately look more attractive. And the best part is you are not limited regarding patterns. You can get an already-made rug with a specific print, but you can also get a custom-made one. And it can be anything you want. Some people even like to take a particular pattern and subtly include it throughout their homes. This is especially true in living rooms, where people match the patterns of their throw pillows and rugs.

Go sentimental

Sometimes what makes a piece of décor unique and striking is not how much it cost or the material it was made of but its emotional worth. The unique designs are the ones that mean something to us. Getting a rug with a color or a pattern with some emotional symbolism is a nice touch. For example, you can get a rug for your teenager’s room in a pattern of the first toy they had as a baby. It’s a beautiful way of mixing past and present with a simple rug. This is also an excellent idea for those who are moving and want to take a piece of their old home with them. According to experts at, most people find their moving day emotional and hard to get through. That’s why taking a pattern of curtain or wallpaper in your old home and getting a custom-made rug in that pattern for your new home can be satisfying and emotional.


Play with shapes

Another one of the unique rug design ideas is to play with different shapes of the rug. You don’t have to stick to the same old round or square rug people have been doing for years. You can get any interesting shape you would like, a heart shape, a fun cloud shape. This is perfect for those with limited space in their apartments who need creative ways to decorate their homes that won’t take up much space. A simple yet interestingly shaped rug can do just that. It’s also an excellent design solution for kids’ bedrooms, as you can play around with so many different shapes that kids like.

If you have pets, it’s better to get a darker-colored rug instead of white 

Fluffy classic

You can never go wrong with a nice fluffy rug. They are timeless and always fun to have. Kids love them, and adults do as well. It gives any room a warm cozy feeling. Don’t get a white rug if you have kids and pets; go for a darker color, as it is easier to maintain. Also, there is no need for rugs made from real fur; fake fur is just as effective and yet not cruel.

Don’t hesitate to look for inspiration online

If you are struggling to find creative decorating ideas, and that includes entire home décor, not just rugs, you shouldn’t hesitate to look online. There you can find many ways to get creative that you can use in your home. Social media is a great source of décor inspiration, and you should utilize it. There are also a lot of DIY ideas to transform your old rug into a new modern one.

In conclusion

These are some of the unique rug design ideas you can incorporate into your home this year. As you can see, it doesn’t always require a lot of money to make a piece of décor stand out. A rug in a pattern that’s emotionally significant to you can be a better addition to your home than some of those really expensive rugs from high-end stores. Also, don’t be afraid to play with different colors, patterns, and even shapes. Just remember that design is subjective, and it is all about making sure you like it, and it works for you and your home. And if you ever get stuck creatively, don’t hesitate to utilize the internet and social media.
