Want to make a bold yet down-to-earth statement in your space? Our Buffalo Plaid Black and White Rug is the way to go. One of our best sellers, this black and white plaid rug simultaneously offers a dramatic look and a neutral color palette that’s subtle enough to anchor the rest of your decor. Whether you’re looking for a charming base for your rustic farmhouse, a dramatic focal point for your relaxing retreat, or a clean and modern kitchen, a checkered rug can do it all.
Here are some of our favorite ways to use this buffalo plaid rug to accent a variety of rooms, themes, and decor. Happy decorating!
1. Pair it with dark wood.
There’s something about pairing a checkered rug with wood pieces that just feels right. Maybe because a buffalo plaid pattern evokes images of a rustic log cabin in the wintertime, with wood panels, a comfy couch, and a roaring fireplace nearby—the homeyness is unmistakable. Accent your Buffalo Plaid Black and White Rug with sturdy wood furniture pieces that have dark caramel or espresso-colored finishes to give your home that modern farmhouse feel.
2. Tone down the contrast with cream accents.
A black and white rug provides a dramatic statement wherever you place it. One way to make sure your room is both inviting and bold is to offset the stark contrast with neutral colors, like cream. Cream accents like an off-white bench, white walls, and a cream throw work wonderfully with this checkered rug, creating a beautiful little entryway nook that can be used for reading, relaxing, or even just leisurely tying your shoes.
3. Show off your green thumb.
Got a green thumb? Black, white, and grey colors provide a neutral canvas for you to show off your gardening skills. Whether you’re a fan of fiddle-leaf fig plants, winding pothos vines, or statement monstera leaves, the pop of bright green colors that plants provide will offer an energizing accent to the black and white checkered rug in your dining room, office, or living room.
4. Create a sleek and chic kitchen.
The two most important characteristics of a great kitchen are 1) welcoming and 2) clean. Thankfully, a buffalo plaid rug is both. Its simplicity contributes to a modern, clean aesthetic, while its high-contrast color and checkered pattern provide a subtle statement that makes a kitchen look extra special.
5. Use it to anchor bold decor.
If you’re a fan of bold, modern pieces like we are, you know that they can look mismatched without a design element that ties them together. Since our Buffalo Plaid Rug includes black, white, and grey shades, it easily acts as a neutral base to unify your furniture pieces. So feel free to style a room with a mustard yellow couch, a teal armchair, or any brightly colored furniture—a black and white checkered rug will keep your space look polished.
6. Make a bold statement in your kid’s room.
A buffalo plaid rug would also look great in any kid’s room. Its simple pattern is lively without being overpowering and provides a way to anchor rooms that traditionally are filled with colorful toys and whimsical patterns. With its gender-neutral tones, this rug shines in rooms for boys and girls alike. Plus, the black and white checkered pattern hides dirt better than a lighter rug and provides a blank canvas for endless fun and games.
