    Nothing draws Aquarians more than the unconventional and unique; you love embracing styles that aren’t as popular. You also lean towards investing in sustainable options whenever possible, and that includes decor.

    A handwoven rug in an unusual pattern created in an abstract shape is a perfect addition to their space.

    Pisces love adding dreamy and comforting aesthetics to their home, so it’s no shock your rug style would also lean in that direction.

    A bohemian style option would be ideal for the easy-going attitude you bring into a room. Plus, it adds enough whimsy and color to spark the creativity you enjoy so much!

    You are as fearless as they come, so naturally, so are your decor choices! A novelty rug would work well for the big personality you carry to represent your interests. You can also choose a rug with bright colors and bold patterns to stand out in any room, because if anyone can make it work, it’s you.

    Gemini (May 21 to June 20): Reversible and Playful

    Geminis love to show off their style in their homes and like to mix things up now and then. You don’t like being restricted and enjoy having small ways to make the space seem fresh again.

    Investing in a reversible rug is one of the easiest ways to achieve that goal. The patterns and colors will likely still be bright and tasteful, but you love having the option of turning the rug to the other side when you want to change the feel of your room.

    Cancer signs gravitate towards cozy, homemade concepts that feel personalized.

    When deciding on a rug style, you want it to be comfortable yet practical, so look no further than a braided rug. These options are often high-quality, which makes them durable and able to stand the test of time. They are also typically made from wool or cotton for a soft feel. Whether you prefer a multi-colored option to brighten up the room, or a neutral one to blend in with your surroundings, you can’t go wrong with a braided style.

    You want to stand out, Leo, we know. You carefully select everything in your space to draw attention and admiration, so why not go for a rug that does the same?

    Grab an eye-catching animal print style or a shag rug for a luxurious feel. If you want to take things to the next level, layer your rugs to draw attention to your style and create interesting textures that will impress anyone who comes to your home.

    Let’s be honest; most people wouldn’t go for a white rug in their homes because of how dirty it could easily get. However, with you’re attention to detail and level of perfectionism, we know this isn’t something that worries you.

    Going for a white rug (or any light, solid color) will be fit with your desire to keep things looking crisp and organized. A padded rug would be a great asset for those days your feet need a break, and that could be a frequent occurrence with everything you tend to have on your plate.

    Going for a rug with a floral pattern brings a softness to the atmosphere as well as holding a certain charm. Florals are a classic way to spruce up a room, and with so many options to choose from, you’ll undoubtedly find one that fits your aesthetic.

    While you may not be too focused on finding something decorative, you still like to add nice touches to your home. You lean towards things that are durable but easy to work with, much like yourself.

These rugs are often made out of durable materials that will last for years to come, so you don’t have to worry about replacing them too often. They typically come in neutrals tones and patterns, which will work well regardless of how you design your space. As a bonus, they are pretty affordable, and we know how much you enjoy saving a few bucks when you can.
