How a Brown and Teal Rug can Highlight Your Room Decor
Decorating with a brown and teal rug can highlight your room by bringing in natural browns while also including teal as an eye-catching, non-neutral pop of color.
Decorating with a Brown and Teal Rug
When you’re deciding on a brown and teal area rug, you’re not stuck to just one particular style. The brightness of the colors, their patterns, and their overall design have a huge impact on the actual interior design style that they fall into. Whether you’re creating a room that’s modern and minimal or traditional and ornate, you can find a brown and teal rug that pairs well with your style.
Choosing which Brown and Teal Rug is Right for You
With so many brown and teal rugs to choose from, it may be a daunting task to begin your search. However, here are several areas to consider when it comes to narrowing your search.
Position: The obvious first step is to choose which room you’ll place the rug in, but the not so obvious next step is to determine exactly where it goes and how it connects to the other furniture.
Living Rooms: There is no one set way to position a rug in a living room, but here are some common ways you can set up your brown and teal area rug. You can station it fully under the furniture, just under the front two legs, or directly in front of your seating/in the middle of a seating arrangement.
Dining Rooms: Dining room rugs are often stationed directly beneath the table with enough excess for the chairs to comfortably sit on the rug.
Bedroom: Just like living rooms, there is no one correct way to set up your teal and brown rug in the bedroom. Some place it completely beneath the bed; others place it under the bottom two thirds of it. There are other options too, like centering it in the room itself or stationing a small rug by a reading nook.
Kitchen/Bathroom: You can also decorate your kitchen or bathroom with a brown and teal rug by placing a small one in front of a sink or vanity. Runners also work well for narrow spaces and walkways.
Outdoors: If you choose an indoor/outdoor rug, your teal and brown rug can also fit well outdoors, stationed within a seating area or beneath a dining set.
Size: The size of the rug connects to how it is positioned. If you plan on placing the rug entirely beneath the furniture as opposed to just part of it, that will impact which size rug you purchase.
Shape: Teal and brown rugs come in a variety of shapes, such as rectangular, round, oval, square, as runners, and so on. The shape can impact the room’s tone as much as the pattern and colors, so consider that when shopping for a rug.
Pattern: These rugs come in a variety of patterns, from traditional oriental and persian rugs to modern and abstract. Decide which interior design style you like and then find a pattern that suits that style. As a brief example, geometric and abstract shapes tend to work well in modern living spaces, while Persian rugs are often featured in more traditional or classic styles.
Shades: Finally, the shades of brown and teal can vary greatly depending on the style you want. Muted tones can work well in traditional or homey styles, while more vibrant colors fit in with contemporary interior design. Your brown and teal rug can also incorporate other colors in the mix, such as gray, orange, red, and so on. So, whatever style you’re looking to create, choose hues and combinations that add to that style and strike the mood you’re going for.
