Grey Area Rugs
Choose grey over cream for a more elegant, far more interesting neutral area rug that hints at luxury. The shade of grey you choose, from cool to warm, impacts the mood of your room. Cool greys have undertones of blue and evoke a feeling of zen, perfect for bathrooms. Warm greys with yellow tones feel cozy and comfortable and keep a room without much natural light from looking cold.
A grey area rug grounds a room, and because it's a neutral, it lets your other furnishings shine. You can find a predominantly grey patterned rug, such as a geometric or tribal pattern in varying shades of grey, that's subtle yet unique. Look for a rug that blends grey with one or two of the other predominant colors in your décor to pull the whole look of the room together. Great combos are grey and yellow for a modern vibe, grey and soft blue for subdued sophistication, and grey and red for a masculine feel.
As with most modern carpets, grey rugs are made of durable, easy-to-clean fibers such as nylon, polyester and polypropylene, and they can have a flat-woven or pile surface. Choose flat-woven for high-traffic areas and pile where you want comfort under your feet.
