10 Summer Rug Ideas to Brighten Your Home

Summer is just around the corner!  That means it is time to update your home decor to reflect the bright and cheerful season.  One easy way to do this is by adding a new rug to your home.  A rug immediately adds texture, colour and pattern to any space, making it feel more vibrant and welcoming.

Here are ten summer rug ideas to help you brighten your home.

1.  Floral Prints

Flowers are synonymous with summer.  A rug with a floral design can add a touch of nature bringing the outdoors inside.  Choose a rug with bright colours and bold blooms to really make a statement.

2.  Bright Stripes

Bring home the beach vibe with stripes!  Stripes are a classic pattern that never goes out of style and can work in any season, but bright and bold stripes are perfect for summer.  Look for rugs with stripes in shades of blue, yellow or beige to create a fun and festive vibe.

3.  Woven Textures

Natural fibers like jute, sisal and seagrass are perfect for summer because they add texture and depth to the room.  The natural golden colour of jute is like a splash of sunshine that is warm and inviting.  Look for woven rugs with a natural texture to bring a touch of the outdoors inside.

4.  Geometric Patterns

Ready to take the plunge?  Geometric patterns are a great way to add a modern touch to your home decor and give your home its unique character.  Choose a rug with a bold geometric pattern in bright colours such as pink, yellow or orange to create a fresh and modern look for your bedroom or living room.

5. Nautical Themes

Nautical themes are perfect for summer, especially if you live near the water.  Look for rugs with an anchor or sailboat motif to really anchor in the theme (pun intended!), or choose a rug with the classic blue and white stripes.  Either way, it screams summer and water is near.

6. Tropical Prints

If you cannot go to the tropics, bring the tropics to you with a rug featuring palm leaves or other botanical motifs.  These rugs add a touch of vacation to any room and are perfect for summer hosting.

Tip: Get one that is cotton and machine washable so that it doubles as a patio rug for those summer parties

7. Bright Solids

Not one for bold patterns?  Sometimes, a solid coloured rug in a bright hue is all you need to add some summer cheer to your space.  Look for rugs in shades of coral, turquoise or sunny yellow to brighten up that living room.

8. Moroccan Inspired Designs

Moroccan inspired rugs are perfect for summer because they add a touch of exotic flair to any space.  They often come in vibrant colours of vibrant blue and spicy red.  Look for rugs with intricate patterns to create a dramatic effect.

9. Bohemian Rugs

Bohemian rugs are all about texture and pattern.  They add a laidback vibe to your home that is perfect for summer.  Look for rugs with fringe, tassels or woven details to add a touch of fun and boho beauty.

10. Soft Pastels

Soft pastel hues are perfect for summer.  Think cotton candy at the local fair.  Look for rugs in shades of blush, mint green or pale blue to add a subtle touch of colour to your space.

In conclusion, adding a new rug to your home is an easy way to update your decor for the summer.   Those summer parties wouldn't be complete without a new rug that brings the outdoors inside.  Whether you choose a bold floral design or a soft pastel hue, a new rug can brighten up your home and create a cheerful and inviting atmosphere.
