Remodelaholic | 55+ Colorful Neutral Rugs


Neutral rugs are a great way to add texture and anchor a room together. A neutral rug doesn’t have to be boring colors, or plain. Many rugs in a variety of colors can work as a neutral.

Don’t worry if you want something different, we’ve got great ideas from vintage style rugs, to green and blue area rugs, to all types of affordable area rugs.

We love rugs of all shapes and sizes. There are so many different textures, edges, colors, patterns, and designs. And neutral doesn’t have to mean only gray, brown, blacks, whites, etc. Other colors can be neutrals. An oriental rug with a variety of colors can be considered neutral. Or some shades of blues, greens, etc. can also be very neutral.

Shop all of the rugs here, and then below find them broken out by basic traditional neutral colors and more colorful neutral rug options. Some of the rugs come in a few different colors too, so they fit in both categories.

If going with a dark statement wall, add a lighter neutral rug to help balance a living room space.

A bold color like this pink rug can look like a really bold move, but really with the traditional oriental rug pattern, it looks more neutral and adds a statement to this fairly neutral room, and could easily be changed without much work.

Dining Rooms

A large area rug under a dining table, can make a space feel more homey. This look is more of a neutral on neutral, but the pattern really adds depth to the area.

Bedrooms
