Pro-Tips To Choose A Rug Color

At RugKnots, we have a special service that can work closely with you to help choose a rug color. We call it the "Personal Shopper" program, which allows you to share images of your living space where you plan to use the rug.

Here is how this program works:

All you must do is take a photograph of the space and send it to our team. You can then select different types of rugs, and we will graphically add the rugs to your photos. This way, you can get a virtual presentation of how the rug suits your space, and which one works best for you. While selecting the best rug colors, here are some tips to keep in mind:

Tip #1: Choose Rich Colors

When we say choose rich rug colors, we mean go for shades that are deep or dark. A dark navy-blue rug, for instance. Perhaps a deep red or maroon Bokhara rug would also look great. For the rug to stand out and improve the general aura of the space, white-colored walls or walls with light colors are great.

Tip #2: Choose Light Color

Interior decorators suggest using light-colored rugs in small spaces to create the illusion of a larger living area. Also, if your space has dark walls, then using light rug colors will make the rug stand out in a good way!

Tip #3: Choose Rugs With Contrasting Shades

According to most reputable interior designers, soft or muted shades blend well to create a beautiful contrast. If you have warm wall colors such as orange, yellow, or red, you can buy rugs with contrasting colors to create a balanced look.

In addition to this, you can consider the color of the furniture in the space as well. If your couch has contrasting throw-pillows, then you can buy a rug color that mixes both shades and works well with the walls. Doing this right can make your home look sophisticated, luxurious, and classy.

Tip #4: Choose Rugs With Cool Colors

No doubt, having cool colors in the rug helps create a calming aura in the living space. They tend to tone down the loud wall colors that can make your nerves feel exhausted at times. For instance, walls with bright yellow, red, and green can make one feel overwhelmed after a hectic day at work. Sometimes, the right colors of rugs can make you feel stress-free and relaxed almost instantly when you get home.

Tip #5: Choose Darker Colors

Rugs with dark colors are not for every home or living space. Certain aspects to keep in mind include whether there is LED Lighting in the area. If you use a dark rug in an already dull area, you will only make it look depressing and uninviting. Using dark rugs in well-lit spaces with large, floor-to-ceiling windows makes them look cozy and attractive.

Our recommendation for dark-colored rugs is mostly Bokhara rugs. You may also explore other oriental rugs like the Persian rugs, Baja rugs, and Kilim rugs. Some patchwork color may also look amazing.

Black is a popular choice for dark rugs. It doesn't get dirty easily, which is a good thing.

Some Common Questions

Should A Rug Be Lighter Or Darker Than Couch/ Sofa?

 This might be a question in your mind and we get why. It entirely depends upon your personal preferences but its always a plus if you match everything in a room. Try using contrasting patterns with your couch and rugs. Use a neutral toned rug with bold colored sofas and vice versa.

A great idea, though. Try finding the right rug color first and then get into other details. Choose warm and neutral colored pillow with bold colored rugs and do the same the other way around.

This should give you a general idea as to how you can match your rugs to your surrounding furniture and items. Contrasting features look absolutely fascinating but never miss your own personal preferences as well!

Pro-Tips For Area Rug Color Tones

Colorful rugs are bright and vibrant, but you can also identify them by their lack of brightness and vibrancy. Earlier, we explained the different types of colors you can choose, and those were tips by professionals. Now we will discuss something different – "Color Tones."

Most people assume that the color tones and rug colors are the same things. They are similar but not the same thing. Let us explain!

When we discuss rug colors, we are simply considering the dye colors used in making them. The overall general colors they have are all we consider.

However, when we discuss tones, different rug colors have a variety of shades – known as tones. Here are some highly recommended rug color tones you may want to keep in mind while shopping at RugKnots to buy your rug.

Muted Color Tones

The muted color tones are ideal for creating an overall tranquil or serene setting in a room. These monochromatic color schemes are usually lighter shades that make you feel calmer and relaxed for example, white rugs. We recommend that you choose colors from the same color palette as your wall color because this helps create a consistent muted color tone. You should match similar lighter shades of pillows and other accessories in the space.

Bright And Vibrant Colors

Complimenting Colors

This is another tone type for rug colors. Many peoples' style choices often fall somewhere in the middle of bold and serene colors.

With complementing colors, you can consider rugs that complement the color scheme of the walls, cushions, furniture, etc. To match your room's décor, pick an area rug color that goes well with the existing color scheme.

If you have a room with cream walls and burgundy sofas, you can choose a rug. The rug should blend burgundy tones with a beige motif.

Talking of motifs, we love these motifs on this stunning multi colored flatweave area rug.

Rugs With Colorful Patterns

If you fall in love with a patterned rug and worry that it will be too busy for a room in your home, remember that the pattern does not need to match everything in the room. Instead, look at color tones that suit the design motifs of the rug. Also, coordinate the colors with the room's textures and colors within the accessories or art in the room. This can be fun because you will discover new things you never noticed in your room before.

For example, if a TV is hanging on the wall and a couch sits across from it along with coffee tables and end stands, it is a parallel pattern or linear design. You should look for a line patterned rug because it would bring out the lines of the room while matching the color hues.

If your furniture is a solid color, you can match its hue to a patterned area rug choice. If your furniture has a bright pattern, choose a plain rug that matches the room.

To look sophisticated, match a secondary color in an Oriental rug to your sofa. Match a third rug color to your throw pillows in the room. Oriental rugs offer an excellent accent for a vividly complex room because of the high knots per square inch count or (KPI).

Also! Would you look at this beautiful geometrical patterned area rug, it will look beautiful in your living room.

Hi there!
Our master bedroom is a unique shape (non-rectangle), with light taupe walls. Our comforter has very neutral colors (white and taupe) with a cream linen headboard. Our floors are a medium dark hard wood. I was thinking I was wanting a jute type rug to go under the bed, but I am not sure that would look the best. I want something that goes with the room, but we also have two dogs that shed (black fur). Any tips or suggestions would be amazing! Thank you!


I need to update the rug at the cottage and I am looking for a rug that is 9′×12′. I have pics that I can share if I know who to send it to.


I have a small sunroom that I plan to paint in and gray or light shade. I have natural woodwork, and medium brown wood floor. I have an olive green love seat with a wide type of corduroy texture, my husband loves this and wants to keep. If possible I have a tiffany lamp mainly blues, with some green as well. I need an area rug about 5×8. This is also the area out dogs go in and out of the house. What would you suggest for this?


It was a pleasure speaking with you this afternoon and getting a sense of your space. I sent you a few options via email. Let me know what you think of these color choices.


I just painted the room light grey. I have a charcoal grey sofa with dark Orange pillows and an accent pillow with multi colors. I also have 2 swivel chairs that are are a white and black tweed print. What color rug would you use. Plain or something with a pattern? Thank you !

I have solid grey sofa , travertine. In Versailles pattern and taupe walls. What color rug should I look for? Thanks


I have two charcoal gray sofas with gold bases, and two ivory chairs with gold legs. I have a multi gray stone fireplace that goes to the ceiling. The builders carpet is light beige. Should the area rug in the living room be more darker gray to contrast the carpet, or lighter gray contrast the sofas.

great room has brown leather couch and grey walls with a side chair brownish/grey and off white curtain treatment.. Husband wants lighter colour pattern rug, wife wants more of non patterned solid colour Place your vote?


My wife and I just bought our first home and decorating isn’t our “thing.” We bought two light gray couches with a gray and royal blue accent chair. We were thinking of either a dark gray shag rug. Again, we don’t know what we are doing… Pattern on the accent chair is busy, so not sure if we can get away with a busy area rug. Our walls are a white with a hint of beige. Almost an ivory. Thanks in advance!

Hi I am trying to pick an area rug for my large family room. Sofa is in an L shape by the fireplace and in door off-white with tiny grey dots. Sofa is not flush to any walls and there is space behind L shape. I could also consider to have rug runner in both these spaces. Furniture is black with some silver – TV console and a wine cabinet so far. Need help picking color/pattern and type of rug. Also, should I go with rug runners or not, if yes do they need to match.

Hi! Seeing as this will involve a detailed response, we’ll answer this question via a direct email to you. :)


I am trying to pick out a rug (maybe 2) for a large great room. The sofa and loveseat don’t sit against the walls, but form an L-shape in front of a rock fireplace that reaches to the ceiling. The walls are beige and the sofa and loveseat are a light brown/gray color. I feel I need a patterned rug and something to add some color, but don’t feel I want anything too bold. I’m thinking of purchasing one rug for when you walk in the front door and another for under the coffee table in front of the sofa and loveseat, and that maybe the two rugs should match?

From what you’ve described, I’ve found two rug options that may be a good fit. This first one I think is kind of perfect, considering it factors in not only yellow, but gray, to match the walls and sectional:
However, due to the worry that you want something that won’t get dirty as quickly, perhaps you would want to go with our one shag rug:
Which may match the sectional?
I’m unsure of whether each rug matches the room’s colors specifically, though. If you would like to send pictures, please do so Thanks!

Hi I have a living room with beige walls a dark gray couch and natural color hardwood floors. My entertainment center is black and my tables are glass with black iron. I currently have a kind of denim blue colored curtains up which I really like. I like multi colored modern rugs but cant decide on the color. Not sure if I should introduce a new color into the room


I am trying to figure our rug. We have walls between mustard and bright yellow, a dark gray sectional, white bookcase, and light wood floors. To boot, I have children and I am scared that anything too light may get stained easily, etc. I was going to get a bold rug with multiple colors, but was scared it was too much with my wall color. Any ideas?

Rugknots Area Rugs

Given the neutral colors in your room, consider adding punch with warmer colors! Think nice rich reds which will pop against the fireplace as well as your furnishings.


I am having a difficult time choosing a rug for my large living room. I need at least 10×14” rug. Couch color is a light linen color and chairs are a charcoal grey the in my opinion looks cooler blueish. The furniture doesn’t throw me off as much as the fireplace stone does… its a stacked multi color stone the reads shapes of grey, beige, tan,white,blue, maybe a little brown.. and our floors are a dark brown. Please advise as the previous rugs I ordered looked too similar to fireplace stone. They were more oriental vintage wash I guess. Thanks!

Rugknots Area Rugs

You can use rugs such as Ikats that are predominantly grey that will coordinate nicely with your decor and still provide the calm presence you’re looking for.


I’m struggling with a rug color for our large living space. We have a light grey sectional with a black steel accent chair and white media stand & bookcase. Our living room has an abundance of natural light as 3 of the four walls are windows. I’m looking for a calm soothing presence.

Go with light greys, dark greys and even black colors in a rug for your drawing room. If it were just the accent wall, consider choosing a rug with lots of purple which would compliment the purple wall quite nicely. Throw in the red couch and perhaps toning the overall look down with the aforementioned greys and blacks.

@Joan, you can choose rugs with a similar violet mixed with ivory or beige colors. You could easily choose rugs with overall greys. Light greys and even darker greys would work well here.
