How a Teal and Green Rug can Highlight your Room Decor
A teal and green rug can highlight your room’s decor by setting a consistent mood throughout the entire space and tying together your color scheme. Whether your decor is in the same color family or other hues, the overall mood of the rug can complement the decor by carrying the vibe throughout the entire room.
Decorating with a Teal and Green Rug
When you’re decorating with a teal and green area rug, you’re not locked into one specific interior design style. These rugs come in all sorts of patterns, designs, and appearances, so whether you’re looking for a teal and green rug to fit into a youthful boho room or an elegant, regal hall, a teal and green rug can be the perfect accent for your home.
Choosing which Teal and Green Rug is Right for You
Because there’s so much possibility with teal and green rugs, you may not know how to narrow your search and find the rug that’s right for you. If you think through just a few of these areas, you’ll be well on your way to selecting your perfect teal and green rug.
Position/Size: It’s vital to determine the room’s layout early on and how the rug will fit into it. Here are some guidelines for popular rooms.
Living Rooms: Rugs are often centered with the furniture, and they can rest either in front of the furniture, under its front two legs, or completely beneath the furniture in larger, open rooms. You can also use a small teal and green rug elsewhere in the room to set up a reading nook, social corner, or play area for kids.
Dining Rooms: The most natural place for a teal and green rug in the dining room is centered beneath your dining room, with enough excess on the sides and ends for the chairs to sit comfortably on the rug.
Bedrooms: Most commonly, rugs are centered beneath the bed and either rest completely under the bed or under the bottom ? of it. In either case, it extends further into the bedroom to provide comfort and style.
Kitchen: A teal and green rug can bring life to any kitchen, and decorating with a 2x3 rug in front of a sink is a wise move stylistically and practically. Or, if you have a galley kitchen or a kitchen with an island, a teal and green runner can fit well in narrow pathways or areas you stand still at.
Bathrooms: Like kitchens, bathrooms can benefit from 2x3 rugs by the sink, but also by a shower or tub. Runners also work well in narrow spaces and/or in front of a double vanity.
Outdoors: Green and teal rugs are also available as outdoor rugs and can be the perfect addition to your outdoor seating or dining. Follow the guidelines for living rooms and dining rooms respectively for how to place it.
Shape: Teal and green area rugs are available in many different shapes, from rectangular and round to unique shapes like octagon and square. There are other shapes as well that can work well in oddly shaped spaces or just make a statement in a main room.
Pattern: Because teal and green are common colors in many interior design styles, you’ll find that the designs and patterns of their rugs are also vast. Some designs, such as geometric and aztec designs, are common with modern design and boho homes. Oriental and Persian designs tend to fit in with elegant and traditional homes, but they can also fit in with homey styles like farmhouse depending on one more key factor: color.
Color: You may have decided on a teal and green rug, but the exact shade of those colors has a big impact on the overall tone and style. Lime green and teal rugs can fit into youthful and vibrant designs, while muted and worn green and teal area rugs can fit into those more relaxed styles mentioned before. Distressed teal and green rugs in particular can fit in well with vintage and farmhouse homes, and if the rug is blended with other colors like neutral tones or even other colors, the overall mood of the rug will shift as well. Whatever look you’re going for, think about the overall tone you’re trying to accomplish and choose a color scheme that evokes that mood.
