Be Inspired: 6 Stylish Carpets and Area Rugs

These six HGTV fans demonstrate how the right rug or carpet makes the room.

Creative and Custom Area Rug

HGTV fan Modern had a problem: Where to find an affordable and hip rug to fit this oversized space? Solution: Modern creatively mixed approximately 100 FLOR carpet tiles of varying patterns and colors to create a truly one-of-a-kind area rug that anchors the space and packs a lot of punch for not a lot of cash.

Mod in Black and White

A bold, look-at-me rug is perfectly at home in a dramatic space. The rug's swirling, high-contrast pattern is mirrored in the sofa's two pillows and the sinuous curves of the graphic artwork. Room design by HGTV fan MondNebel.

Plush and Cozy Carpet

Wall-to-wall carpet is a great flooring choice for a bedroom. Carpet is soft underfoot, absorbs sound and maintains a constant temperature, so no more stepping out of a warm and toasty bed onto a cold floor. Room design by HGTV fan 10597254.

Have Fun with Flooring

HGTV fan My Little Cupcake designed a Yankees-themed nursery that provides creative space for any little slugger. The baseball theme is obvious, but not obnoxious, thanks to My Little Cupcake's repetition of round shapes, ranging from the spherical paper lanterns suspended above the crib to the red throw rugs playfully scattered across the floor.

Rhapsody in Blue

Plush wall-to-wall carpet and a perfectly coordinated area rug complement this bedroom's elegant blue and cream color palette. The colors and soft textures work together to create a room ready for relaxation. Room design by HGTV fan SSD.

Rugs Soften Outdoor Space

Rugs aren't just for the indoors. HGTV fan Zena took the party outside with this chic, outdoor living space. A weather-resistant rug coupled with a deep, very comfy-looking sectional turns this outdoor room into a hip hangout.
