If you adore playful, vivid colors that demand attention, we think you’ll enjoy our selection of magenta rugs. This bold and exciting color has gained popularity in modern interior decorating, but it’s still relatively uncommon compared to standard colors like red, blue, or green. Once you add magenta to your space, though, you might fall for this eye-catching color.
As you shop for the perfect magenta area rugs for your vision, we hope you’ll enjoy our selection from trusted brands like Safavieh, Surya, Jaipur, and more. We have patterns ranging from modern to vintage with everything in between, so you’re sure to find one that fits your style.
If you’re not prepared to change your whole home around your new magenta rugs, that's fine! A spot of magenta color in a neutral room can be just as arresting. But we encourage you to pick a color palette and be as bold as you’d like with this enchanting shade.
Magenta pairs well with grey, beige, tan, white, black, charcoal, green, blue, teal, lime green, and pink. Most designers recommend picking a palette of four to five colors, including neutrals for the walls, to keep your design elegant and classy. Bright colors like lime green should be used in small doses so that you don’t overwhelm the space.
Would you like some inspiration for decorating with magenta area rugs? If so, check out some of our favorite ideas below:
The living room is an excellent place to play around with a magenta rug. Surround your rug with complementing colors like white, grey, wood tones, and maybe an accent of green to complete the look. You might also try a pink rug or a fuchsia rug in the living room.
A magenta-themed bedroom can look exciting, feminine, and elegant. Place the rug under the bottom two-thirds of your bed and consider pairing it with a magenta bed scarf or pillows. Try a purple rug or a maroon rug in your bedroom if you’d like something more subtle.
Add an unexpected splash of color to your exterior living areas with a magenta outdoor rug. Outdoor rugs can also work well in the kitchen or entryway because they’re resistant to moisture, soil, and heavy traffic. And if you’d like something less vivid, try a burgundy rug in an outdoor material instead.
Ready to find your favorite magenta rugs? If so, we recommend checking out the tips below to help avoid common buyer’s mistakes:
Measure Carefully: Measure the room and furniture layout carefully. Then use a placement guide to find the best rug dimensions for the room.
Consider Durability: Pick a material that can stand up to the traffic and exposure in your home. A high shoe-traffic area calls for more durability than a shoe-free zone, for example.
Get a Rug Pad: Rug pads are designed to prevent sliding. This protects the backing and pile on your rug. We recommend adding a pad to your cart before checkout.
