How a Safavieh Abstract Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A Safavieh abstract area rug can highlight your room’s decor by fitting into the same color palette, setting the tone, and reinforcing the room’s style. Your rug shouldn’t take away from the room’s decor; when you focus on tying the rug and decor together through the three areas listed above, you can create a room that feels cohesive and intentionally designed.
Decorating With a Safavieh Abstract Rug
The beauty of abstract rugs is that they really take on the theme and style of other elements of the room. For example, if you have an abstract rug that uses splotches of coral orange in the design and then use it in a coastal home, it suddenly becomes a coastal rug. However, you can take that same rug and put it in a modern space to create a completely different look. With Safavieh abstract rugs, you have plenty of ways to take your design.
Choosing Which Safavieh Abstract Rug is Right for You
As you shop for your perfect rug, it’s important to think through some key areas.
Position: Step one is to look at your room’s layout and decide where you want to use a rug. Each room is unique, so take these general guidelines as a starting point.
Living Room: Oftentimes, large abstract area rugs are used to center your main seating area. If that’s your goal, then you can center it in the middle of the area and have it in front of the furniture, under their front legs, or further beneath the chairs. Alternatively, you can use a smaller Safavieh abstract rug in another corner of the room to establish a separate space for morning coffee, reading, or other purposes.
Dining Room: When you’re setting up your dining room table and rug, center the rug directly beneath the table. Ideally, it should have about two feet of rug on each side and end so the chairs can be comfortably moved around.
Bedroom: If your bed is the main focal point of the room and is centered on a wall, then you can further that style by laying a rug directly beneath the bed. However, if your bed is off to one side of the room, then try placing a rug in the middle of the room or right along the side of the bed to create visual interest there and tie multiple areas together.
Kitchen: 2x3 and 3x5 abstract rugs can really highlight your sink, stove, or anywhere else you need to make a small statement. Another idea is to use a Safavieh runner rug to cover the same territory and create a comfortable path.
Bathroom: Similar to kitchens, bathrooms can also use runners to establish a path, but they can also be used to accent a double vanity. Plus, smaller rugs can dress up a sink, tub, or shower.
Outdoors: Safavieh abstract area rugs are available for outside spaces as well, so you can add style to your deck, patio, or porch. For layout ideas, refer back to similar indoor spaces.
Size/Shape: Once the layout’s set, you can decide on the rug’s shape and size. Both of these facets work together, so you’ll choose size and shape at the same time. Start off by considering common shapes like rectangular, round, runner, and others to see what fits your space best. Then, check out some popular sizes like the small ones recommended above or larger 5x7, 8x10, and 9x12 rugs.
Pattern: Safavieh abstract rugs come in many different sorts of designs, and each one has its own theming and styling. Look at options like marbling, swirls, color-blocking, stripes, and others to find a look that connects to the rest of your decor thematically. Remember, abstract designs really take on a life of their own when intentionally paired with other decor! If you need extra guidance, check out specific Safavieh collections like Amalfi, Tulum, Valencia, and others.
Color: Color is also a key part of making your room feel connected. Even popular colors like grey, white, blue, etc take a life of their own when set in the room, so look for a palette that reinforces your existing color scheme and sets the right tone.
