Oftentimes, we find ourselves shopping for something pretty darn general: the comfiest living room couch, the softest sheets, or the best area rug. Other times, we know exactly what we want and just need a bit of a push in the right direction. Enter your guide to the best blue rugs. You've already narrowed down the color — that's a solid 80% of the work. Now we're here to help you with the final 20%. Organized by material, this list offers our favorite blue rugs in every shade, size, and style. From minimalist to maximalist and solid to patterned, here is your ultimate guide to finding the perfect blue rug.


Blue Rugs by Material

Video of the Day

It's common to organize rugs by home decor style, but we've instead opted to categorize them by material. This is for two key reasons. Firstly, the lines can get pretty blurred between rug styles, and many models can't be categorized as one or the other. Secondly, rug material isn't always taken into consideration as much as it should be. It's critical in determining the rug's durability, lifespan, price point, aesthetic, and cleaning method. We've provided a little insight on each material, but be sure to take a look at our comprehensive rug material guide for the full low-down on both natural and synthetic materials from Sharon Gautschi, VP of merchandising at Rugs Direct.

Wool Rugs

Wool is one of our favorite materials for rugs. Wool is durable, easy to care for, and perfect for high-traffic areas, like entryways and family rooms.

Silk and Silk-Blend Rugs

Silk rugs are known for their beautiful sheen and luxurious look, but they're not recommended for high foot traffic areas since they stain easily and need to be professionally cleaned.

4. 17 Stories Leontine Hand-Knotted Silk Area Rug in Dream Blue, $639.99-$1,329.99


The hand-knotted silk offers a unique two-toned effect.

Jute Rugs

This eco-friendly option has a natural and relaxed look, but isn't always the most durable.

10. Rugs USA Navy Jute Braided Area Rug, $52.40-$584

Viscose Rugs

Viscose has a similar look to silk, but often rings up at a much happier price point and tends to be more durable. However, viscose rugs don't hold up well against water as the synthetic fibers break down rather easily.
