Beige is still here. With the quiet luxury trend all over our social media feeds even months on, I’ve found that multiple rug brands are going more minimalist and focusing on beautiful neutral colors that still use intricate design schemes to add interest.

I find that a neutral rug adds coziness to a space through a little soft footing underfoot. The best part is the fact that a best rugs will naturally work with any design scheme, no matter whether you prefer maximalist decor ideas or more Scandi chic design. 

In fact, the rugs I’ve selected are all shades of beige, from darker brown tones to off-white hues, and many of them use very original designs to make sure they’re far from boring. I’ve found traditional Turkish carpets, oversized shag rugs, and even modern designs for you to choose from, so you can get in on the beige rug trend before it’s too late.

Beige rug FAQ

How do you figure out which rug material works best for you?

You can trust Homes & Gardens. Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing the latest products, helping you choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

As with anything, work out your needs. If you live in a busy home with high traffic or lots of little ones, a polyester, machine-washable rug may work best. Wool and silk rugs have softer underfoots, but they could be hard to maintain. Cotton rugs are gentle and cozy, but definitely stain easily, and note that natural materials like jute may be rougher to touch, even though they are much better for the environment.
