Hardwood floors are many homeowners’ dream, especially when it continues through an open-concept space to create a seamless flow. However, many of us also want defined areas that are set apart for specific functions, such as a seating area or reading nook. Thankfully, that’s where a well-placed rug becomes irreplaceable!

Rugs create a transition, which our eyes and minds interpret as a separate space without losing the sensation of an open space. A neutral rug elevates this by providing a subtle backdrop that enhances, rather than distracts, away from our other decorative elements, including furniture, artwork, and light fixtures.

But if you think that neutral rugs equate a boring, washed out design, you couldn’t be more wrong! Soft, muted colors and gentle patterns are a fantastic way to incorporate flair and personality without becoming the focal point of your room’s design. Don’t believe me? Be sure to check out our gallery of rug ideas of neutral living rooms below to see for yourself!
