How a Pink Braided Rug can Highlight your Room Decor
A pink braided area rug can highlight your room’s decor by connecting the color of your rug to your decor, or serving as a stylistic connection. For example, braided rugs can sometimes convey a country or rustic vibe, so simply having a braided rug and then pairing it with other country decor can serve to tie the room together and highlight each decorative element.
Decorating with a Pink Braided Rug
Braided rugs might be commonly associated with country style interior design, but these rugs are versatile enough to fit into a variety of styles, such as boho, southwestern, and other interior design styles that have a flair for texture. Even if you’re just looking to subtly bring in a new texture, decorating with a pink braided area rug is one simple way to add in that flair and style.
Choosing which Pink Braided Rug is Right for You
There are many possibilities out there for pink braided rugs, so as you narrow down your search, think through these key areas.
Position: One of your first steps should be deciding on the room’s layout and how the rug fits into it. There are no set rules, so take the following as inspiration and ideas.
Living Rooms: In a living room, you can place a pink braided rug centered with the main furniture. The most common layout for braided rugs in the living room is to have it either completely in front of the furniture or under its front two legs.
Dining Rooms: Any rug you choose, braided or otherwise, fits naturally when it’s centered under your dining room table and chairs.
Bedroom: You can place a large braided rug centered with the bed, either all the way under the bed or under the bottom two thirds of it. If your bed is off to one side, you can always center a pink braided rug in the middle of the room itself. Or, you can use a small round pink braided rug to establish another area of the bedroom, like a play area for kids or a reading nook for others.
Kitchen: 2x3 or 3x5 braided pink rugs can fit in front of sinks, ovens, or other areas you tend to stand still. Otherwise, decorate with a braided runner rug in galley kitchens or by a kitchen island.
Bathroom: You can place small braided rugs by sinks, showers, and tubs, but you can also decorate with runner rugs in narrow pathways or in front of a double vanity.
Outdoors: Pink braided area rugs are also available as outdoor rugs, so you can carry your style throughout all your living spaces. For positioning ideas, follow guidelines for similar indoor spaces.
Shape: Pink braided rugs are available in many different shapes, from rectangular and round to oval, square, and even other shapes. Look at your room’s layout and size to determine which shape/size works best, and consider how the shape of the rug mimics or compliments other shapes in the room.
Pattern/Color: Some pink braided area rugs are solid in color, while others may use a blend of hues. Some may even show off different colors with patterns, while others will blend the colors in stripes and other configurations. The key is to find colors that fit your room’s palette and convey the proper tone, whether that tone is calm and soothing or vibrant and exciting. Common color palettes for pink braided rugs include pink and white, pink and green, multicolor, or other combinations. No matter what style or color scheme you’re looking to create, you can find a pink braided rug that fits your needs.
