How a Teal and White Rug can Highlight your Room Decor
A teal and white rug can highlight your room’s decor by adding in a pop of color without having it dominate the room’s aesthetic. Your teal and white rug can serve as the entire basis of your room’s color scheme and style, or it can be the connecting piece to tie to the other decor you have, like the wall art and pillows.
Decorating with a Teal and White Rug
White, as a neutral color, is present in many different interior design styles, but teal is another versatile color that shows up in a ton of different styles. When you’re trying to figure out how to fit a teal and white rug into a certain interior design style, there are several factors to consider, such as the rug’s pattern and color composition. Of course there are other factors that we will elaborate on further, but rest assured, when you’re decorating with a teal and white area rug, you’re not limited to one specific design scheme or look--you can find a rug that’s perfectly suited for the look that you’re going for.
Choosing which Teal and White is Right for You
There are so many options out there for teal and white area rugs that you may not know where to start or how to narrow down your search. Well, if you think through some of these areas, you’ll be well on your way to finding a teal and white rug that’s perfect for you.
Position: Firstly, think about how you plan on positioning the rug in relation to the other furniture, accents, and the room itself.
Living Rooms: A teal and white rug can look great centered with your primary seating, and it can either be in front of the furniture, under the furniture’s front two legs, or completely beneath it if the room is big enough.
Dining Rooms: In the dining room, it’s most natural to center your teal and white rug under the table, with the rug spreading enough that the chairs sit comfortably on it whether they’re pushed in or pulled out.
Bedrooms: Rugs are often centered beneath the bed and rest under the whole bed or under the bottom ? of it. If your bed is off to the side, you can center the rug in the middle of the bedroom itself. You can also use a small rug to establish another area of the room like a reading nook.
Kitchens: A teal and white rug in the kitchen can compliment whatever the room’s style is and serve a practical purpose. 2x3 rugs are perfect in front of sinks, but you can also use a runner there if you have a galley kitchen or an island.
Bathrooms: 2x3 rugs fit in front of sinks or by showers and tubs, but runners also work in narrow spaces or in front of a double vanity.
Outdoors: Teal and white rugs are available as outdoor rugs that stand the test of time and weather, so you may as well carry your style outside! Follow the guidelines for similar indoor areas and your rug will help establish your space’s function and style.
Shape: Teal and white rugs come in many different shapes and sizes, such as the standard round and rectangular rugs to square, oval, octagonal, and even other shapes. You can choose a shape that best fits your room and makes a statement--remember, the pattern and color scheme of the rug isn’t the only way to add style; the rug’s shape plays a big part in the tone and style as well!
Pattern: Certain patterns are associated with specific interior design styles, such as geometric, chevron, and abstract designs fitting in with modern and contemporary decor. The good news is, teal and white are such a common color scheme that you’ll find they show up in all sorts of patterns. Your best bet is to look at what sort of style you want your room to fall into and find a pattern that fits that mold and expresses whatever tone you’re seeking to create, whether it’s fun and youthful or elegant and regal.
Color: Just because you’ve narrowed down your search to a teal and white area rug doesn’t mean that you’re locked in to one particular color palette or combination. You can choose rugs where one color is more dominant than the other, the intensity of the teal is either bold or subdued, or you can choose a rug that incorporates even more colors like blues and browns or a teal black and white rug. Remember, the color scheme of the rug can fit into an existing palette or serve as the inspiration for the entire room, so think about what function the rug will fill and how that color scheme fits your needs.
