Here at Eastman’s, our team of knowledgeable and experienced flooring experts know that area rugs are the perfect way to show off your own unique style. If you’re considering leveling up your house décor, read on to discover the top area rug trends of 2022!


Aesthetic Pastel Area Rugs


Adding a pastel rug to your home is the perfect way to add a subtle pop of color to any room. Coming in a wide variety of patterns and styles to choose from, pastel rugs can create a soft, creative ambiance. These rugs are perfect for young children’s bedrooms or those with a coastal home decor style.


Animal Pattern Area Rugs


If you’re feeling bold, take a walk on the wild side with an animal pattern area rug! 2021 saw the rise of the leopard print, and 2022 has been the year for faux zebra and antelope. These area rugs can act as an eye-catching statement piece and are sure to be a conversation starter! For those who might not be ready for a bold animal print, our team suggests the subtle antelope style.


Contemporary Area Rugs


Contemporary area rugs can liven up your home with its unconventional patterns and are great for those who want to add a more stylistic flair to their home décor. These rugs can easily modernize your home while keeping it cozy and are commonly used by people of all different styles.


Geometric Pattern Area Rugs


Going for a more eclectic look? Opt for a geometric pattern rug! With its bold and sometimes dramatic designs, this style is perfect for maximalists and artsy types.


Our team’s current favorite is the Moroccan-inspired lattice style! This style combines the striking lines of geometric patterns with the soft character of natural fibers to create a beautiful area rug that is perfect for coastal homes.


Neutral Area Rugs


If you’re going for a simple, light look, then our team recommends purchasing a neutral area rug! Neutral tones like cream and gray can easily complement the other décor and furniture in a room without being overpowering.


This type of area rug can be incorporated into any home décor style, but we strongly encourage the use of a neutral area rug in coastal homes.


Shag Area Rugs


Keep it cozy with a shag rug! With its deep pile and cushy feel, this area rug can add a luxurious, contemporary touch to your space. Our team suggests adding this cozy accent to the spaces you want to be most comfortable in, such as living rooms and bedrooms. Not sure if you want to commit to a higher-maintenance rug? Let us give you peace of mind with our favorite cleaning hacks.
