When you want to create a timeless, serene environment, count on a white rug to ground and define your space. White rugs span a color spectrum from snowy white to creamy ivory. Even solid-color white rugs have some variation in the color tones to add interest and reflect the movement of light. A white rug with a deep or variegated pile adds texture and balances hard surfaces, ideal in a room with a light cohesive palette such as a bathroom or sunroom.
A white rug can make even the smallest space seem more expansive, and because the space is small, you can splurge. Consider a creamy wool rug with a luxuriously deep pile for soothing comfort under your feet. Wool is one of the most durable, long-lasting carpet fibers available, and a classic wool rug never goes out of style.
When looking for a rug for a child's bedroom, consider a brightly colored geometric with a white background. The white grounds the pattern, which can draw on any color or colors in the room, making it the perfect platform to build on.
