Layered Rugs- Stylish or Stop It?

My Overstock.com rugs arrived last week.  One ended up looking great in our kitchen but sadly the other did not, wa-wa :(  With the floor in our kitchen nook still looking bare and empty, I started sifting through some of the other accent rugs I had at home (I've accumulated a lot in the past 5 years) which lead me to a new idea...

What about layering a couple rugs?  I've been seeing a lot of layered rug looks on Pinterest lately and when done right, I think it is a chic look!

The thing is, I'm just not sure if it's a look we can pull off or not?  I have a few good candidates for layering into the space....

I'm going to play with them a bit and see if a good look comes together but if it ends up looking like a hot mess I'll just scrap the idea :)

What do you think?

Do you think the layered rug look is stylish?


Should the layered rug look be stopped


  1. Not a fan of the layered rug look....too many uneven surfaces on the floor to trip on. Plus, it always looks chaotic to me.

  2. Hazardous & too busy looking. Sorry...

  3. Layered might be a much/potential trip hazard? in a kitchen, but I do like your selection of rugs on the left...


I love to hear from you! What's on your mind?
