How a Pink Washable Rug Can Highlight your Room Decor
A pink washable rug can highlight your room’s decor by inspiring a warm color scheme or serving as the one unifying piece you need to tie the room together. Whether you’re looking to add in pink as a feminine touch or some other reason, machine washable pink rugs are versatile enough that they can fit into a variety of design styles and accomplish a bunch of different design feats.
Decorating with a Pink Washable Rug
When you’re looking to decorate with a pink washable rug, rest assured that you’re not locked into one particular design style, nor are you stuck with just establishing a girly, feminine tone. Pink’s tone changes dramatically depending on the shade you choose. From traditional to elegant all the way to modern and simple, you can pair a pink washable rug with whatever your design style is.
Choosing which Pink Washable Rug is Right for You
Narrowing down your search for your perfect pink washable rug may seem like a big task, so here are some guidelines to help get you started.
Position: The first step is to choose which room the rug is in, but a secondary step is to determine how you’re going to do the layout. In certain setups, the rug can overlap with furniture and accents, while in other rooms, it may be better not to have any overlap. Take the following as guidelines to get you thinking about how you want to do your layout.
Living Rooms: The most common layouts for rugs in a living room include placing the rug completely beneath the main furniture, under the front two legs of it, or placing it in front of it, like centering it in the middle of a seating area.
Dining Room: A pink washable rug should fit comfortably beneath the table, centered under it, and have enough room on the sides and ends for the chairs to sit completely on the rug.
Bedroom: Rectangular machine washable pink rugs are often set completely under the bed or ? of the way under it. However, if your bed is off to the side of the bedroom, you can always place a rug in the center and allow that to be a focal point. You can even choose a round pink washable rug to sit elsewhere in the room, such as in a little sitting nook or office area.
Kitchen: Decorating with a washable pink rug in the kitchen makes sense in a lot of ways; you can position a 2x3 pink rug or a washable pink runner rug along pathways. Plus, since this can be a messy area, it really benefits from having a washable rug.
Bathroom: You can also use a 2x3 rug in front of a sink, by a shower, or by the tub. If you have a narrow path or double vanity, your bathroom may also benefit from a pink washable runner rug.
Size: Machine washable pink rugs come in a variety of sizes, so depending on your space, you can choose a rug that fits your needs. Plus, the position of the rug and how/if it overlaps with the furniture will affect which size rug you choose.
Shape: Pink washable rugs are available as rectangular and runner rugs as well as square. If your space is uniquely shaped, think about how choosing the shape of the rug can benefit your room the best.
Pattern: Because pink is such a versatile color, you’ll find that it comes in a variety of designs and patterns. It can be a common color in Oriental and Persian rugs as well as other geometric designs and even artwork.
Colors/Pairings: Pink is rarely the sole color of a rug; it’s often paired with other tones like blue, orange, green, and neutral tones like white, brown, gey, and black. Not only do the pairings affect the overall tone of the rug, but so does the intensity of those colors. If they’re muted and distressed, they tend to work in homey styles like farmhouse homes and coastal scenes. Brighter tones are often present in Boho style, Southwestern, and other styles that love brighter tones. Fortunately, machine washable pink rugs are available in many different shades and pairings, so you can find one that works for your home.
