What Houzz contributors are saying:
Carpet protection. Inherited an easy-to-stain pale carpet in your living space? Or perhaps you put one down before kids came along? You can keep the carpet (and the space-enhancing neutral look it brings) by teaming it with a large floor covering in a more forgiving neutral shade. This flat-pile gray rug is a smart choice since it hides a multitude of sins and shakes off dirt easily. Plus, the addition of a second rug brings a cozy, bohemian feel to the space. The top rug is less likely to move about with the base rug to keep it in place.
9. Layer for warmth. Why use one floor covering when you can layer two? Break up solids and layer textures by placing a solid shag rug atop a low-pile Moroccan carpet, or a hide atop a solid rug. As for the effect, imagine a modern version of a king’s throne heaped in hides and fabrics. You’re basically creating a more minimalist version of that.
