Solid Rugs

A solid color rug is an excellent way to tie a room together. From formal dining areas to casual family rooms, west elm’s solid rug options are the perfect accessory. By helping to both beautify and protect your floors, our rugs balance form and function with ease. Thanks to subtle, well-placed detailing and the use of textural patterns, our solid rugs are far from basic. They provide just the right amount of detail and decor to sustain minimalism, monochromatic decor, refined modernism or any other avant-garde design approach. With their plush texture and rich colors, our solid rugs lend a simple opulence to any part of your home.

Our generous selection of attractive options makes it easy for you to select a rug that works well in your space not only in terms of style but also in its size and shape. We offer small rectangular rugs, large circular rugs and runners that can cover the entire length of a hallway. Measure the space you intend to cover with your rug. Use a tape measure to ensure the size and shape you want will not only fit but fit well in the space. You want the rug to remain flat and even on the floor without any bumps or curled edges due to obstacles such as a wall.

Versatility is a major point of appeal when it comes to solid rugs. You can choose matching solid rugs in different sizes, pair solid rugs with a patterned statement piece rug or display a single monochrome rug on its own. No matter what your wall decor and furniture upholstery looks like, a solid rug can fit in seamlessly in your living, dining, bath or bedroom. Even kitchens, foyers, hallways and home offices are perfect for the tranquil evenness of a solid color rug.

Textural variations can create plenty of interest if you choose to go with solid rugs. Mix plush wool with pleasantly rough, natural jute. Choose a low-pile rug to pair next to a shag runner. From creating visual variation to providing an interesting experience for bare feet, textural diversity elevates your room in a subtle, artistic way. Carefully choosing texture can also be pivotal to keeping your house as clean and tidy as possible. For example, placing a roughly textured or low-pile rug closer to the entryway of your home can help clean off shoes as you and your guests make your way inside. These rugs, in turn, are easy to clean themselves, so you can keep your space looking pristine with minimal effort.

If you’re placing your solid color rug on a hard, slick surface such as hardwood or marble floors, a rug pad will help keep your rug firmly in place and prevent slipping and sliding. Our non-slip rug pads also add some extra cushion to the rug, bringing an already comfortable rug to new heights of plushness. If you’re concerned about consuming environmentally friendly products, we offer green rug pad options crafted with sustainable materials such as post-industrial recycled fibers. Rug pads also protect the floor underneath the rug, so there’s even more incentive to add this small investment to your rug purchase.

A new rug can completely change the look and feel of a room. Take advantage of this quick and easy makeover technique by staying on top of our new rugs as they arrive. Our new arrivals page makes it easy for you to keep track of the chic new solid color rug options we offer, so you can add rugs to parts of the house that need them or switch out an older rug for a fresh new model.
