5 Rug Colours and Designs to Avoid

When it comes to decorating a room, choosing the right rug can make a significant impact, from adding warmth and texture to creating a focal point, a rug can transform the look of a space. However, it is essential to choose the right rug colour as it can affect the overall feel of the room, here are some rug colours to avoid.


1. BRIGHT & BOLD COLOURS

While bright and bold colours can add a pop of colour to a room, they can be overwhelming when used across a large area.

Bright rug colours can make a room look smaller and less relaxing and it can be challenging to match with other decor elements in the room, if you want to add a pop of colour, consider using it in small accents like throw pillows or decor items.



2. DARK COLOURS

Dark colours like black, navy, or dark brown when used in rug, can make a room look smaller as it draws the eye down.

These colours absorb light and can make a room feel more closed in, dark colours can also make it challenging to see dirt and stains, making it harder to keep the rug clean.

3. WHITE OR LIGHT COLOURS

While white or light-coloured rugs can look stunning, they can be challenging to maintain.

These colours show dirt and stains more easily, making them more challenging to keep clean. Also, light-coloured rugs can create a stark contrast with darker furniture, making the room feel unbalanced.



4. BUSY PATTERNS

Busy rug patterns can be overwhelming in a room, especially if there are other decor elements that compete for attention.

Patterns can also date an interior look and often low cost rugs are manufactured by machine which results in an unnatural feel and look to the rug.



5. NEON OR FLUORESCENT COLOURS

Neon or fluorescent colours can be too bright and intense for a room and these colours can make a room feel less relaxing, especially if used as a solid colour in a rug.

If you want to add a pop of bright colour, consider opting for a design with multiple colours in a contemporary rug pattern.



When choosing a rug, it's essential to consider the overall style and colour scheme of the room.

A rug can add warmth, texture, and colour to a room, but it's essential to choose the right rug colour to avoid overwhelming the space.
