The Latest Trends in Commercial Rugs

It’s hard to believe that commercial rugs were mostly limited to simple shapes and muted colors just a few years ago. Today, they are as bold and varied as the spaces they adorn. 

From classic works of art to geometric designs and colorful patterns, there’s a wide range of options out there for any business owner looking to spruce up their lobby or office space with a custom rug. 

According to Yahoo! Finance, the global carpet flooring market will reach USD 120 billion by 2028. The industry is expected to see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6% between 2022 and 2028. The growth in the market is largely driven by remodeling activities and a growing preference for sustainable products. 

So what does this mean for your company? If you’re ready to upgrade your old-fashioned carpeting or tired of the same old boring area rug in your reception area, or both, here are some trends in commercial rugs that we think will be perfect for your space:

Sustainable Materials

As the world becomes more eco-conscious, sustainable materials are becoming more popular for commercial rugs. While sustainable materials are often more expensive than non-sustainable ones like polypropylene or nylon carpeting, they're also better for the environment in the long run. 

According to Yahoo! News, the sustainable, ethical, and recycled materials trend is applied even in floor fashion. Plant-derived material like bamboo, sisal, and sustainably sourced jute is considered environmentally friendly and increasingly popular. And the best thing about these materials is that they can stand the test of time.

Bold Colors and Patterns

Bold colors and patterns are being used to create unique and eye-catching commercial rugs. Some popular patterns include geometric shapes, abstract designs, and floral motifs.

In addition to using bold colors as part of your overall design plan for commercial rugs, another way that they can be utilized is by using them as focal points within an otherwise neutral room design so that there's one area where all eyes will naturally gravitate towards when entering into the room itself.

Rug Source, a reputable retailer of high-quality rugs, including the popular Heriz style, is known for its bold colors and intricate patterns. These rugs feature a unique style that combines traditional Persian design with bold geometric patterns and rich hues, making them the perfect choice for those looking to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to their space.

Whether you're looking for a traditional or modern design, Rug Source has a Heriz rug to suit your needs and personal style.

Custom Designs

Custom designs are an excellent choice for businesses that want to create a unique look and feel in their office space. Custom rugs can be designed to match specific color schemes and patterns that are specific to the business, such as a logo or image. 

Choose from a variety of colors, patterns, and materials when you order your custom rug. Choose a custom size, so it fits perfectly into your space. Have your logo printed on the rug for an extra special touch. 

If you're looking for something different but don't want to spend hours searching through thousands of options online or don't have time, a custom design may be just what you need.


Layering rugs is a growing trend in commercial spaces, as it can add texture and dimension to a room. Different styles, sizes, and shapes of rugs can be layered to create a unique and inviting space.

Layering rugs is an easy way to add variety to your space without having to spend more money on new decor items.

According to interior whizz Preston Konrad in The U.S. Sun, the number one thing you can do to make your space expensive is to layer your rugs. It is done in almost all of the stores designed for Ralph Lauren. Layering adds dimension and texture and makes the place look more curated. 

Low Pile Rugs

Low-pile rugs are great for high-traffic areas and can be found in a wide range of colors, patterns, and sizes. They're also less expensive than other commercial rugs, which makes them an ideal choice for restaurants and hotels that need to replace their flooring regularly.

Low-pile rugs are easy to clean because they don't collect dust as quickly as thicker carpets do. The low pile allows you to clean your carpet simply by vacuuming it once or twice per week (depending on how often people use the space).

Mixed Materials

A mixed material rug is a type of commercial rug that combines different materials to create a unique look. The most common combination is leather and wool, but you can also get ones made with natural fibers like cotton or silk.

Combining these materials is becoming more popular because it gives you the ability to create your design with no limitations on what colors or patterns you want to use. You can even mix two or three different styles.

Art-Inspired Designs

Art-inspired designs are a popular choice for commercial rugs. These rugs can be inspired by paintings or sculptures, which adds a touch of creativity and sophistication to a space. 

Art-inspired designs have become increasingly popular in recent years as they allow you to express yourself through your decorating choices. They can also add some personality to your business by reflecting who you are as a company and what values you hold dear.

Custom Shapes

Custom shapes are a great way to add some personality to your space. Depending on how you want to use them, they can be used as an accent piece or a focal point.

Custom-shaped rugs, such as circular, oval, and irregular shapes, are becoming more popular in commercial spaces. These rugs will make a statement of their own and stand out from any other type of rug you may choose for your office or retail store.

Textured Rugs

Textured commercial rugs are a great way to add character to your space. Textures can be subtle or bold, and they can create a cozy and inviting feel in a space. 

Textured commercial rugs are becoming more popular as they add depth and interest to a room. These rugs can be made from materials such as wool or shag and are perfect for high-traffic areas of your home, like hallways or bedrooms.

Technology Integration

Technology integration is a growing trend in the commercial rug industry. There are many ways to integrate technology into rugs, including LED lights, sound systems, and sensors. 

These can be used to enhance the design of rugs or make them more functional. For example, you could use sensors underneath chairs, so they automatically turn on when someone sits down or off when someone leaves the room. The possibilities are endless.


The next time you're in the market for a new commercial rug, make sure you consider all of these options. They can help you find the perfect fit for your space and business needs, so don't get stuck with an old-fashioned rug that doesn't meet today's demands.
