Why Buy A Neutral Rug?

Ancestral Minimal rug collection


In the ever-changing world of interior design, it can be challenging to determine how to transform your own space. However, opting for a neutral rug can provide numerous advantages. By adding a neutral rug, you can infuse warmth into the room while also allowing yourself the freedom to explore bolder and more vibrant colours in other furnishings.

Additionally, embracing a room filled with neutrals can create an open, pristine, and sophisticated ambiance. The beauty of neutral colours lies in their diverse range of tones, which enables you to achieve the precise effect you desire.

What are Neutral Colours?

Neutral means muted shades that lack colour but contain hues that change in different lighting. Their significance cannot be overstated, as we encounter them every day whether it’s our cars, clothing, or home decor.

What makes neutral colours truly mesmerising is their ability to reveal undertones, showcasing a touch of another colour depending on the lighting of the room. From lighter tones that emanate a sense of cleanliness and brightness to deeper shades that exude a cozy ambiance, the array of neutral shades and tones can completely redefine the look and feel of your space.

Neutral Room

As much as we love bold colours in our interior schemes, it is essential to maintain a harmonious balance with neutral tones. When selecting a rug, it is highly recommended to consider the existing colours in the room. Take a step back and assess the overall look of the space. If there is already a plethora of bold hues, avoid overwhelming it with yet another shade. Instead, opt for neutral tones that complement the vibrant colours of your existing furnishings. If your sofa or walls boast bold colours, a predominantly neutral rug can effectively break up the expanses of vibrant hues, creating a more serene and tranquil ambiance.

When choosing a rug, keep in mind the lighting in your room. If your space is a little dim, a pale neutral rug can work wonders by brightening up the room and creating the illusion of a larger space. On the other hand, if your room is blessed with ample natural sunlight, a rug with darker tones can add a touch of drama and make a bold statement.


Why Choose A Neutral Rug?

Contemporary neutral rugs add a touch of texture and warmth to any space. With their simple yet easy to place designs and colours, they effortlessly blend into any setting.

Neutral colours provide the perfect opportunity to create depth in your space by incorporating different shades of the same hue. This allows elements made from wood, brick, and stone to add a touch of warmth to your surroundings. It’s crucial to select a hue that complements these materials. For instance, woods with cool or yellow undertones like grey oaks and walnuts beautifully pair with grey and blue rugs, while those with warmer, reddish undertones blend harmoniously with other warm colours.

When selecting a neutral rug for your home, it is important to consider the desired effect you wish to achieve. A darker coloured rug can create a cozy and intimate atmosphere in a room, while a bright or light-coloured rug can bring energy and vibrancy. For a calming ambiance, pale neutral rugs are the perfect choice, particularly for a bedroom. Additionally, practicality should be taken into account, as a medium tone neutral rug will be the most durable and forgiving for everyday use.
