Rugs are quintessential to any living space. Who would have thought that a small piece of fabric on the floor could make such a huge impact on a room? No one wants to look at a boring, bare floor, and there’s literally shapes and sizes for any room. A rectangle rug can add a pop of color in the bedroom while a runner will completely elevate an entryway. My personal favorite? A circular rug underneath a round coffee table. I honestly can’t picture a better pairing.

The bright colors and bohemian vibe of this rug are absolutely spectacular. It has a distressed look about it but still pops thanks to those orange and blue hues. This rug will add a fun touch to any office or living room, and reviewers say the colors are even more vibrant in person.
7. An eye-catching rug that’s built for traffic
This colorful rug is absolutely stunning. It has a bright—yet not aggressive—boho-chic design that will invite many compliments. Bonus: It’s ideal for high-traffic areas because its made from polypropylene, a synthetic material that can stand up everything from soccer cleats to spaghetti sauce.
8. A simple gray rug that still stands out
A plain gray rug can typically be kind of boring, but this one has just enough detailing to make it interesting, which is why reviewers love it. They agree that it feels soft and the colors match the images. It’s also neutral enough to work in literally any space or design.

Get yourself a rug that can do both—i.e. work in both indoor and outdoor spaces. This one is weather- and stain- resistant, making it the perfect accent near an outdoor seating set or under a backyard dining table. The contemporary design of this rug would work well with modern styles, and reviewers say it’s quite soft for an outdoor rug.
10. A faded rug that adds a touch of brightness
This simple area rug is faded in all the right places, and comes in a number of neutrals and cool blues. It’s the perfect piece to add some extra detail without detracting from the decor of your space. According to reviews, it’s not super thick but will still brighten up your space.
11. A kaleidoscope-inspired area rug
The medallion motif of this area rug reminds me of a kaleidoscope—in the best way. It comes in several color patterns, but I think the navy would work best for adding some neutral tones and pattern without being too overwhelming.

Florals are the highlight of this outdoor rug. It features a colorful raised floral motif that will definitely be the talk of your next barbecue. Reviewers love that the colors play nicely with their backyard and that it’s so easy to clean. Even better, it looks good indoors too, so you can use it year ‘round.
15. An eccentric rug made for a teenager’s room
This bright rug almost has a Western feel to it, but is instead loaded with neon hues that would work well in a teenage bedroom or a first apartment.
