White rugs are kind of renown for being easy to stain, difficult to maintain, and too a daring a stylistic choice too. Luckily, Rugs USA has solutions for you for all of these concerns! With the right material, white rugs can be very easy to keep clean, even with multiple pets and little ones running around. Many white rugs at Rugs USA are no more difficult to maintain than other kinds of rugs.
And as a style choice? Anyone who thinks a white rug won’t dress up a room hasn’t found the perfect white rug for them. White rugs can do anything, from brightening a room with little natural light to adding an extra element of texture. Kids love the feeling of fluffy white rugs under their feet in playrooms and living rooms.
Solution #1: The Washable White Rug
We’ve all heard the horror stories about when you leave a pet alone with a white rug. Some of us might even have our own stories to share. But with the rise of machine-washable rugs and rugs made with a durable, flexible material (even water-resistant or stain-resistant material), these horror stories can go back to the past where they belong.
The white rugs of the past were meant to bring luxurious, expensive material to give rooms that dash of sophistication. But those rugs weren’t meant to take on spills, messy coloring materials, mud tracked in from outside, rough playtimes, claws, and paws. These days, you and your family can find a washable white rug that matches your needs.
If you still want a luxurious white wool rug, don’t worry: nothing is stopping you from pursuing the rug of your dreams. But if you need something a little more understanding of your busy lifestyle, modern solutions have been developed for modern problems. Different materials can be rolled up and thrown in the washing machine when someone spills spaghetti sauce all over them. Other rugs are made of such resistant material that all you have to do is wipe up the mess.
This Pearl White Silky Shine Solid Shag Area Rug, found at Rugs USA, boasts about its luxury in the tufts of soft material that form a wave over the ground. With an inch of thick material, you could fall asleep very comfortably on the rug alone. It’s also made of polyester–making it very easy to clean.
Solution #2: White Rugs for Style Flexibility
The color white gets a bad rap when it comes to décor. Why choose white when you have hundreds of other colors to choose from? Isn’t it blasé? Well, the answer about white rugs is that they actually give you almost unending decorating flexibility, from being your room’s blank canvas to being its spotlight.
There are hundreds of different shades of white that you can use to customize your space. White is also a reflective color that can help make the most of the natural light that comes into your room. If you have few windows or live in an area that doesn’t get much sun, a white rug can help add more light and brightness to your room.
White rugs can also emphasize the colors you already have in your space. Vivid colors on your walls seem even brighter next to a white rug. With a white background like a rug, bright yellow throw pillows or a deep crimson blanket on your couch makes an incredibly bold statement with impact on the eye. Or, with this color flexibility in mind, you can also go for light neutrals throughout your bedroom for a more cohesive, unified feeling, setting it all of with a white or off-white rug in the center of it all.
White rugs don’t just have to be the equivalent of white pieces of paper for the rest of your furniture to sit on. They can also have patterns, textures, and lines on them that direct the eye to other parts of the room. This Off White Waves Shag Area Rug found on Rugs USA gives a room that textured look, but also takes the eye to other areas, highlighting different corners. The waves on the rug can help make a small space look a little bigger.
Solution #3: Easily Maintained White Rugs
White rugs come in all shapes and sizes for any style of room. Whether you have a traditional space, a rustic room, or want something modern to match the rest of your accessories, a white rug can fit anywhere! On top of that, we’ve picked some particular types of white/off-white rugs that make maintenance (including easy clearning) much easier than, for example, a hand-tufted or more pricey wool rug.
Here’s what we’d recommend if you’re looking for handy maintenance, not high maintenance:
Jute rugs for indoor-outdoor ease: Jute is a natural fiber that handles stains well and is often found in light-colored rugs, from white to beige. It’s pet-friendly, organic, and has its own high-texture style to it. These kinds of rugs fit well both indoors and outdoors. When something spills on a jute rug, don’t wipe it up, but rather blot the spill up.
This Off White Jute Braided Area Rug found at Rugs USA has beachy vibes to it. It’s hand-woven and eco-friendly, and can withstand all the wear and tear from your family while adding a unique flair to any room.
Washable rugs for quick cleaning: Washable rugs come in many shapes and sizes, but they aren’t just for the kids’ rooms anymore. As we discussed above, white washable rugs offer a perfect answer to the question, “But what if I spill something?” These rugs can be made from synthetics or from natural fibers, but one element describes them all: you can roll them up and throw them in the wash!
This Luna Washable White Rug found at Rugs USA looks like a cozy sweater with its thick ridges and lines.
Synthetic rugs for genuine robustness: Synthetic fiber is easy to clean, easy to afford—yup, even when the rug is bright white. Synthetics are the rugs that were only dreamed of in the days of permanently stained white carpets. Today, they can come in any style you like–like this White Faux Sheepskin Shag rug.
