Minimalist or Maximalist? The Rug Design Scheme for You

Talking home décor style trends, the two major themes that all of us are aware of are the minimalist and maximalist styles. The category of home décor is a vast one with contemporary, bohemian, abstract, geometric, and many such themes. However, for someone who hasn’t delved deep into this world, maximalist and minimalistic design approaches are the easiest way to determine which appeals to whom.

That being said, it is a popular notion that minimalism means giving up on all the worldly desires and possessions. However, the true essence of minimalism lies in the feeling of being satisfied with all that we have. Maximalism, on the other hand is a lifestyle that branches from a variety of underlying determinants. Being a maximalist could mean so many things. For a homeowner, it could be that they have their personal battles to fight and creating their home into a luxurious abode makes them feel safe. For an artist it could be channelizing all the creativity that resides within their heart. For a musician it could mean not stopping at learning the chords of just one instrument, but as many as their creativity inspires them to explore.

Despite the contrasting characteristics of both these lifestyles, when we talk about the two with respect to home décor, it all comes down to how we address creativity.

Based on the two visual aesthetics, we have curated a list of 8 rugs that feature both minimalistic as well as the maximalist pattern schemes so you can choose the one that expresses the best of you.
