A pink jute rug can highlight your room’s decor by complementing an existing color scheme or serving as the basis of the room’s palette if you’re designing from the ground up. Even if the decor and artwork doesn’t have the exact same color scheme as the rug, you can look at the rug’s pattern and design for images, motifs, and tone as inspiration for the decor. For example, if you have an oriental pink jute rug, you can carry over the lines and medallions from the rug into the artwork, pillows, and other elements in the room.
Decorating with a Pink Jute Rug
From a practical and stylistic standpoint, a pink jute area rug can be the perfect addition to your room because it’s both soft and durable. Plus, pink jute rugs come in many different designs and color palettes, so no matter what style you’re looking to create, you can find a pink jute rug that fits that mold.
Choosing which Pink Jute Rug is Right for You
When you’re narrowing down your search, think through these key areas to help you focus on your perfect rug.
Position: First, determine the room’s layout and how the rug fits into it.
Living Room: Pink jute rugs can be configured in many ways in the living room. You can have the furniture centered on the rug and have the rug all the way under the seats, or you can simply have the front legs of the furniture on the rug. Likewise, you can even have the rug rest entirely in front of the furniture.
Dining Room: You can center a pink jute rug directly under your dining room table as long as you leave enough room for the chairs to sit comfortably on the rug whether they’re pushed in or pulled out.
Bedroom: You can center a pink jute rug with the bed and have it all the way under the bed or under the bottom two thirds of it. Otherwise, you can center the rug in the middle of the room itself if the bed is off to the side, or use a small flat-woven rug elsewhere in the bedroom as an accent.
Kitchen: A pink jute area rug can dress up any kitchen when it’s in front of a sink or other area you tend to be stationary. Also consider decorating with a pink jute runner rug in galley kitchens, kitchens with islands, or any other layout that would benefit from a larger narrow rug.
Bathroom: In your bathroom you can place small pink jute rugs by sinks, tubs, or showers, or you can even use runners in front of vanities or in narrow paths.
Shape/Size: Once you’ve determined your layout, it’s time to finalize the size and shape of the rug. Pink jute area rugs are most commonly available as rectangular and runner rugs, but you can also find rugs that are round or square. Consider the room’s layout and what shape/size works best in that footprint, as well as what shape of rug sets the mood best.
Pattern: Pink jute rugs come in all sorts of patterns and designs, such as oriental and Persian all the way to floral/botanical rugs. The design of the rug can introduce motifs into the room or simply serve to establish the tone. Find a pattern that fits at least one of these two qualifications and you’ll be well on your way to establishing a cohesive design.
Color: Finally, there’s determining your full color palette. Some pink jute rugs will use pink as the primary color, while others will use it as an accent or pink border. Plus, you need to consider how bright you want your colors to be. Do you want your room to be traditional but homey? Choose muted tones that convey a sense of history. If you want the room to feel more vibrant, choose pink and other colors that are youthful and exciting. The brightness of the hues and what colors are all in the rug go a long way in determining the room’s style, so don’t underestimate the power of the rug’s color palette.
