Whether you live on a lake, by the sea or in the city, you can get that coastal look in your home. With the right furniture, decorations and wall art, the coastal look can make your home a comfy spot to enjoy. But you’ll also need to consider the right rug to tie it all together. Regardless of your floor type, here are some great rugs to bring that coastal look into your home.

Natural Fiber Rugs

The most classic rug in a coastal home is the natural fiber rug. These are often made of sisal, jute, or seagrass. While they mostly come in their natural wheat, tan or beige color, some are dyed.  The natural color mimics the sand along the beach and goes well with brighter colors.
