Bright, vibrant overdyed rugs fill rooms with dynamic color. Also sold under the name "Color Reform rugs," these overdyed rugs are a popular choice for all decor themes— from eclectic, bohemian rooms to more traditional and modern rooms. Overdyed rugs change the entire look and feel of a space with minimal effort.
What are Overdyed rugs?
Overdyed rugs are antique rugs that are preserved in an intricate dyeing process. The steps in our overdyeing process are relatively straightforward. We take well preserved antique carpets that mainly originate from the Ottoman Empire. They are desaturated, washed with a vibrant (or muted) dye, then washed again by hand to create a luxuriously plush pile. Perfecting these simple steps is where the generations of experience come into play and is where many other rug firms get it wrong. That’s why when you choose a RugKnots overdyed rug, you know that our skilled artisans will not only retain the intricate pattern of the existing carpet— but cleverly add to its character with modern organic dyes that bring a new vibrancy to your chosen style of an antique rug.

Why you need an Overdyed rug
Overdyed rugs are a must whether you are going to reform a space with color or designing a room for the first time. These rugs give neutral rooms that much-needed burst of color. Find a beautifully saturated rug and you can keep walls and furniture white, grey or beige. Then, put up artwork that has the colors from the rug. Once you choose accent pillows from the artwork and rug, you have an amazing room!
Best Rooms for Overdyed rugs
Bold overdyed rugs beautify every room in your home with splashes of color. But to be honest, there are some rooms that are just more suited to these works of art than others.
Overdyed Rugs in Living Rooms
Whether placing it in the living room, great room, or family room, a large overdyed rug (8x10 or larger) is perfect for places of conversation. These rooms typically have lots of furniture and space to entertain. Give them something to talk about with a fantastic statement piece.
Bedroom Overdyed Rugs
When you are decorating your bedroom, choose a large area rug that can fit under the bed entirely. Now you have a lot of room for creativity! You can either have a cheerfully colorful room and use complimentary colors in your pillows and wall art. Or you can let the rug take center stage and use neutral or white bedding and muted wall art. Whichever direction you choose to go, the overdyed rug can be perfect for your bedroom.
Use Color to Reform your Room
Our most popular overdyed rugs are in varying shades of red, blue and green. Surprisingly, black is another very popular choice— it is so dramatic and goes well in really glamorous rooms.
Red Overdyed Rugs
The symbolism behind the color red is passion, power, and love, as well as many other bold adjectives such as daring and assertive. Red rugs are a force to be reckoned with in a room. Many people buy red overdyed rugs because they want the room to feel warm.
Blue Overdyed Rugs
Blue is on the opposite end of the spectrum. It has a cooler feeling to it. Blue symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. When people use blues in their home decor, they are often trying to achieve feelings of calm and relaxation. Blues and purples both elicit very soothing emotions. Blue overdyed rugs—whether deep navy or bright aqua—are always a fantastic addition.
Green Overdyed Rugs
In addition to the common association with money, green is also the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy. Green is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, and freshness. A bright green overdyed rug makes a room come to life. For neutral, earthy rooms, a green rug is a perfect backdrop for a plethora of creative expression.
