Rug Colors

Selecting an area rug begins with choosing the most appropriate color to allow it to integrate beautifully with the existing color palette of your interiors. Whether you’re looking for a brightly colored rug to liven up your monochromatic space or a more subdued shade to balance out an eclectic room design, Cyrus Artisan Rugs has a large selection of handcrafted area rugs in a variety of bold and neutral shades and color schemes.

Set the Mood with the Right Hues

Colors help establish the look and feel of your space, as well as its overall mood. Whether you want a calmer atmosphere, a cozier vibe, or more stimulating surroundings, choosing the right shades for your room can help you achieve that. Select a rug that comes in colors that either complement or contrast with the colors found in other pieces of furniture in the room.

Rug colors also have a variety of connotations. Green hues in Persian carpets suggest hope and renewal, while red rugs can evoke happiness, luck, abundance, and courage. Meanwhile, power and solitude are represented in area rugs with blue shades. Gold rugs symbolize prosperity and authority, and brown represents fertility.

How to Choose a Rug Color

When shopping for an area rug, it’s important to consider the color palette of the room. Pinpoint the dominant shades—the colors of the walls, floor, and the biggest furniture pieces—as well as the accent colors found in smaller furnishings. Then, decide whether you want your rug to complement these shades or create a striking color contrast. Keep in mind that heavily patterned rugs typically feature a wide range of colors and tend to serve as the focal point of the room, while plain, solid-colored area rugs tend to blend in and may function more as an anchoring piece that ties the whole room together.

Aside from boasting an array of materials, patterns, styles, and other characteristics, our collection of handmade area rugs also come in a variety of colors that can make your space more attractive, unique, and lively to your family, friends, and visitors. Whether you’re searching for carpets with vibrant hues or more neutral tones, we can help you find an area rug that can serve as a great decorative piece for your home.
