Why are grey rugs the best for a grown up space?

Posted on 22 September 2015

 Grey rugs are an ideal solution for almost any kind of interior. If you are planning a rather modern and formal space for entertaining your guests, the neutrality of grey makes it a leading choice.

Now, you may be thinking that grey might look a bit dull. But don’t worry, there is no reason why this should be the case as long as you use it in the right way.

We all love grey rugs….

Did you know? Grey is the most searched colour for rugs on Google in the U.K.

That’s despite grey often being associated with depression, boredom, sadness etc. So why do we want grey on our floors?

Well, people love grey because it is a neutral and conformist colour. It is also the colour of maturity and responsibility.

In particular, grey rugs will give your home a certain classy and sophisticated touch. That’s because grey is also associated with elegance.

If you have recently bought your first property you may wish to decorate your house accordingly.
The best solution is to use a lot of beiges, whites and of course greys. Not all the greys are the same. In fact, you may be surprised by the number of shades available.

• Silver grey: This is quite a dark hue of grey yet shiny. The darkness of the colour can be broken up by matching it to very bright colours.
• Pearl grey: This is a calmer, more relaxing and more trendy hue of grey.
• Blue-grey: Blue-grey brings a weave of charm and character, ideal for helping you relax. This nuance benefits from the calming effect of blue and is ideal for a coastal theme.
