If you want to add sophistication to your home, neutral colors like black, white, grey, and silver will be a staple. And our silver area rugs are a perfect place to start.
Interior decorators use neutral pieces like silver area rugs to create mature and grounded designs. Silver makes an excellent neutral foundation for décor, and it can wear many proverbial hats. For example, you might use it in everything from bright modern spaces to chic industrial apartments with everything in between. Silver has a place in most decorating themes.
For those who are still deciding how they want to use silver in their interior spaces, we’ve highlighted some inspiration below. These are some of our favorite ideas using silver rugs:
Try using a silver shag rug in a relaxing reading nook, den seating area or bedroom. Today’s shag gives silver yarn depth with highlights and shadows, which makes this color look like it’s shining. And it’s softer and more durable than any shag material from decades past.
Place a silver bath rug in your space if you already have plenty of colorful décor pieces. Silver also works well in minimalist and industrial bathrooms that make use of neutrals for the primary aesthetic. Try pairing it with a silver shower curtain that features a color like blue, teal, or purple.
Use a silver and gold rug in a dining or living room to break the neutral aesthetic while adding a sense of luxury. Silver and gold naturally go well together, and you’ll find stunning designs that highlight the play between these two colors.
