Rug – There are several possible meanings for the dream symbol of a rug. The phrase “sweep it under the rug” is a common one and means covering up bad things and facts that would make a person, an organization, or a family look bad. In essence, all evidence of anything bad happening is removed and appearances are made to look completely normal and respectable, even though the actual facts may be quite negative and incriminating.
Your dream about a rug may therefore be signifying a desire or compulsion to pretend that everything is all right and an avoidance of the conflict that would ensue from addressing the facts head-on. Alternatively, a rug can be an important decoration in a room, bringing warmth and softness.
Dreaming of putting a rug in a room may be an indication of a desire or need to bring a gentle touch to your life somehow, either by taking better care of yourself or by paying more attention to your relationships.
The location of the rug is important in the dream symbol as well, as a rug in the living room signifies the family, while a rug in front of the door that is used as a Welcome mat signifies friends, extended family, and neighbors, and your way of welcoming of them into your home and into your life.
