Rugs are usually the anchor of a room and it determines what decor style you should go with. However, there are also instances when they don't need to be a part of your aesthetic—after all, there are a lot of other elements you can play up to steer the attention from rug-free floors. Whether you're not into the idea of maintaining carpets or you don't want to go through the trouble of measuring everything, here are some ideas you can try:  

Going rug-free is a great way to showcase high-end hardwood floors or tiles—however, since there is no way to conceal them, it's important to always keep them clean and sparkling! 

Having no rugs in the kitchen means not having to worry about getting food stains off fabric. It also lessens the risk of slipping-related accidents in your cooking corner. To keep the space from looking bare, concentrate on dressing up the walls with eye-catching prints or family photos.

Spaces sans carpets can make minimalist decor shine through. If you really want to incorporate texture into your display, consider doing it through a few decor pieces. 

Although this room is without an area rug, it still makes a statement through the ornate furniture pieces and monochromatic color scheme. Sweeping marble floors is a lot easier than scrubbing rugs, too. 

Not having any rugs that cut through the space can make a room look bigger than it really is. Instead of having the illusion of separate areas, it gives the impression that the space is open and free-flowing.
