My Top 3 Favorite Neutral Rugs for Fall

Here are three of my favorite, neutral area rugs that you can use in any room to add a little texture, warmth, and personality.

Since fall is now in full swing, I thought it would be a great time to share how to change up the decor in your home by changing the color of your rugs. 

I had been thinking about changing up the decor in my living room for some time. So last fall I took the plunge and went from using a bright burgundy rug, to a lighter, neutral rug, and I couldn’t love it more!

How to Pick out Neutral Rugs for Your Home?

When selecting a rug for your home, it is important to consider the style of your space and choose a rug that will complement it. If you are looking for a neutral rug that will work with any style, there are a few things to keep in mind

  • First, think about the colors and patterns in your space. A solid or lightly patterned rug will work well in a neutral space, while a rug with more of a pattern may be too busy for a neutral room.
  • Second, consider the size of the rug. A large rug can anchor a space and help to define it, while a small rug can be used to add interest or to fill a small space.
  • Finally, think about the materials and construction of the rug. A wool rug will feel soft underfoot and will last for many years, while a synthetic rug may be less expensive but may not last as long.

Once you have considered these factors, you can begin to narrow down your options and find the perfect neutral rug for your home.

How to Measure for an Area Rug?

When measuring for an area rug, make sure to measure the entire space that you want the rug to cover. This includes the length and width of the space, as well as any furniture that will be sitting on top of the rug. Be sure to add at least six inches to each measurement to ensure that you have enough room for the rug to fit comfortably.

After having purchased several rugs throughout the years for various homes, my number one tip is to buy big! Buying too small a rug or ‘not exactly’ the right rug, is not the direction you want to go in. It’s worth the extra dollars in the end!
