White rugs like any white decorating accessories represent heavenly purity, joy and truth – it is pure, unsullied, divine. The color white is associated with innocence like a christening dress or a bride - being fragile, delicate and refined. White works so well because it reflects back a great deal of light, so other colors you use with it will really stand out.
Sometimes just a bit of white here or there is all that's needed to add an energetic, elegant splash to a room design and there is no easier way then with a white rug. In the modern home white is a great choice for adding highlights to spaces and for decorating the 'trim' as it lends a crisp finishing touch. And white area rugs are ideal to use to give your room that finished look. Be sure to also browse our selection of beige rugs and cream rugs for some off-white alternatives.
A white floor rug can help brighten up any dark corner of a room – that spot where you'd like to add a window or a skylight, try laying a white wool rug first before calling the contractor; and see if that doesn't change the whole mood of the interior.
