Rugs On Carpets

Placing Area Rugs on top or over Carpet

Using Rugs on Carpeting

You can easily use stylish or designer rugs on carpet instead of in place of. This is getting to be a new layered look in rug decor these days, as well. Though we typically don’t associate rugs over rugs, generally we think of them on wood floors or tile. They do work very effectively over wall-to-wall carpeting to beautify the area and designs surrounding the rugs. But do make sure that the existing carpeting beneath the area rug is up to snuff of course.

Here’s something to keep in mind…

Area rugs tend to curl up and move around on thicker carpet. If you’re going to place an area rug on wall-to-wall carpet, make sure the carpet is no thicker than 1/2.” If the carpet is any thicker than that consider using carpet tape to help hold the rug in place.

Area rugs on carpet offer great style and interest to a room, and they work especially well on Berber and low pile carpets.

Try colorful area rugs in kids’ rooms and playrooms for extra padding or to make a specified play area. Rugs will dress up any room with color and design.
