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
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.
