In any case, it’s always eye-catching.
Most of these herringbone area rugs can be used in almost any décor setting if you pick the right color. If you’re not sure where you want to use yours yet, look at the ideas we’ve highlighted below to help inspire you:
A light blue herringbone rug could work well in any room that you want to feel calm, classy, or elegant. Darker blues will have a more bold and striking appeal, and they’re equally as versatile. Try one made from indoor/outdoor material in your kitchen or entryway.
A natural tan herringbone jute rug will make your space look natural and give it a healthy dose of texture. This is perfect for rooms that feel boring or dull. If your room doesn't have much color, you might consider a bright dyed jute rug instead.
A grey herringbone runner rug will make your space feel spacious and simple. It would work well in a Scandinavian or minimalist setting or a room that calls for a touch of neutral to balance the bright colors on the walls, furniture, or décor.
A Closer Look At Herringbone Area Rugs
The classic herringbone pattern is made from an arrangement of rectangles. It’s used for floor tile and pavement, most often, but also found in rugs and other textiles. It gets its name because the pattern resembles the bones of the herring and other fish.
The symmetry of the herringbone pattern is what helps it work so well for jazzing up standard flooring options. It’s common in the kitchen, bathroom, entryway, laundry room, and many other spaces. In contrast to the symmetry, these herringbone area rugs also have an eye-catching asymmetrical appeal from afar because of the opposing diagonal lines.
Is a Herringbone Rug Right for Me?
Unless your space is brimming with patterns and can’t hold any more, a herringbone runner rug or area rug will surely work well with your décor. Just look for rugs that go well with your existing color scheme to prevent clashing, which can ruin your space.
