Bedroom should be the most calming and relaxing place inside your home. And the best color that can help you to achieve this goal is gray.

Furthermore, this timeless color is a risk-free choice. You could never go wrong with gray, as it can fit perfectly for any decor style, be it modern, classic, rustic, contemporary, or vintage.

When decorating a bedroom with gray as its main palette, one of the most tricky jobs that we often face is to choose the perfect rug.

Things can be a lot more complicated for any bedroom that uses gray as its primary shade. As you may already know, this shade is often associated with boring, monotonous, or two-dimensional. And that’s why using a rug with a very similar gray tone to other furniture and elements inside the room is not a good idea.

In some cases, gray on gray is certainly not a good idea. However, if you want to create a harmonious look without making your space look flat, then you can go with any gray rug with a lighter tone compared with other gray elements around it.

As you can see in the example above, we use a light gray rug by nuLoom that comes with a lighter tone compared with the medium-tone gray that we used for the bed and the walls.

This particular rug brings enough contrast that makes it easily distinguish but still looks flawless and in line with the entire room decor.

Usually, a brown rug can work well in any kind of space. But in a bedroom that uses gray as its main dominant shade, a brown rug doesn’t seem to fit in well.
