Innovating custom designs for diagonal rugs in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The first such eye-catching custom design is a white and yellow diagonal rug. This pattern comes with four corner tiles and combining them creates a small square-shaped diagonal rug. The creator of this design also included some options for central tiles. Of course, the rugs can be customized in a bunch of different shapes and sizes using its various tiles.

By laying down the corner pieces and filling them with the central pieces, players can expand on the rug’s size. They can make it appear as big as they want. After that, arrange some furniture items on it and decorate the surrounding areas. Since most of the other designs are horizontal or vertical, these unique diagonal patterns will help enhance the visual appeal of the island.
