- Area Rugs
Aztec rugs are often known for their bright colors, diamond shapes, and overall geometric flair. An aztec rug can highlight your room’s decor by contributing to your existing color scheme and/or adding in shapes and lines that connect to your wall art, poufs, pillows, and other decoration.
When you’re decorating with an aztec area rug, you’re not limited to just bold patterns. You can find aztec rugs that have more muted designs that have subtle shapes and lines. You can also find bold patterns with subdued color palettes, so that you can fit your aztec rug within a modern home. Rest assured, whatever tone you’re looking to create, and you can find an Aztec rug that meets your needs.
Choosing the right aztec rug for you doesn’t have to be a difficult process; think through a few key areas and you can buy with confidence.
Position: One of the first steps is to determine the room’s overall layout and how your aztec rug will fit into it. There are no set rules for layout, but there are some standard ideas that can get you started.
Living Room: In the living room, you can center your aztec rug with the main seating. Depending on the size of your room, you can position the rug completely under the furniture, under its front two legs, or directly in front of the furniture. You can even use a small aztec rug elsewhere in the room to establish a small sitting area.
Dining Room: Aztec area rugs fit best when they’re centered under your dining room table. Just be sure there’s enough excess on the rug’s sides and ends for the chairs to rest comfortably on the rug at all times.
Bedroom: If your bed is centered in the middle of the bedroom, you can center your rug with the bed by placing it all the way under the bed or under the bottom two-thirds of it. Otherwise, if your bed is off to one side, you can still center the rug itself in the middle of the room and have it overlap with the bed.
Kitchen: Aztec rugs can add style to your kitchen by fitting in front of your sink or anywhere else you tend to be stationary. Plus, aztec runner rugs are perfect for galley kitchens, kitchens with an island, or just along a strip of cabinets.
Bathroom: Bathrooms also benefit from an aztec rug in front of a sink, but these rugs can also fit by tubs and showers. Once again, runners work in narrow paths or in front of a double vanity.
Outdoors: You can carry your style outside with an outdoors aztec rug, and when it comes to layout, look to similar indoor spaces for inspiration.
Shape/Size: Once you know your ideal layout, it’s time to finalize the size and shape. Aztec rugs are most commonly available as rectangular, but you can also find them as ovals or runners. Determine which shape and size works best with your ideal layout, and make sure that the rug isn’t too large or too small for that space.
Pattern: Like we said earlier, aztec rugs are most popular for showing off diamonds and other sharp geometric shapes, so if you want to lean fully into that style, look for rugs that use those shapes. You can even broaden your search to include boho and southwestern rugs for more options. But if you want a more subtle aztec rug, look for rugs that use the shapes in subdued ways or just convey your desired tone.
Color: Finally, color is a key part of aztec rugs. To lean fully into aztec styles, use bold colors like red and blue. Otherwise, go subtle with aztec rugs that are gray, blue, black and white, beige, or other neutral tones. Focus on what mood you want to strike, and find colors that go with that tone. For added style, choose decor that uses similar hues and shares the overall tone of the aztec area rug.
