How a Round Teal Rug can Highlight your Room Decor
A round teal rug can highlight your room’s decor by adding in a new color or contributing to a color scheme you already have established. Teal is a versatile color that can convey exuberance, class, and anything in between, so decorating with a round teal area rug can help set the mood of the entire space.
Decorating with a Round Teal Rug
Whenever you decorate with a colored rug, it’s vital to think about what furniture and accessories you’ll be pairing it with. You can have teal elsewhere in the room in the artwork, books, vases, pillows, and blankets, but you don’t have to find the exact same shade of teal for everything. In fact, having various shades is better, because the room can come across as artificial if you are too matchy. However, teal doesn’t have to be the only color in a room with a round teal rug; you can incorporate complementary colors and neutral tones to accentuate the rug even more.
Choosing which Round Teal Rug is Right for You
Position: The first step is determining where you want to place your round teal rug and how it overlaps (or doesn’t overlap) with the other furniture and accessories.
Living Rooms: You can place a round teal rug in the middle of a seating area in the main portion of the room, or you can go smaller and set out a small round rug elsewhere in the living room, such as in a corner reading nook or small social seating area.
Dining Room: In the dining room, a round teal rug is a perfect fit underneath a round dining room table.
Bedroom: Round rugs often look most natural when they are ? of the way under the bed and extend outward into the rest of the bedroom. However, if your bed is off center in the room, you can always center the rug itself to have a nice focal point and walking space. This can be especially handy if you have children who love to crawl on the floor, or if you love the rug’s design enough that you don’t want it hidden beneath the bed.
Entryway: A round rug can be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to large entryways and foyers, since it can centralize the room and give both a focal point and welcome your guests further in.
Outdoors: A round teal rug can also be used outdoors with your outdoor seating and dining area to add in style and comfort. Always verify that a rug can be safely placed outdoors before placing outside. Outdoor rugs feature special properties like colorfastness and mold-resistance.
Size: The size of your rug directly connects to how you plan on positioning it; for example, you are likely to buy a larger round rug if your rug is completely underneath the furniture versus just underneath the front two legs. The other aspect of size to consider is scale: is the rug too small for the space, or does it take up too much room? Fortunately, scale often comes naturally, since it is easy to visually see if something is out of balance.
Height: Round teal rugs come in different heights, and these different heights can have a big impact on the style and practicality of the rug. Shag teal rugs are often used in areas that see less traffic, or areas where you want extra softness like in nurseries and kids’ rooms. You’re not limited to these examples. The important thing is that you consider the height of the rug for the space’s practicality, style, and overall vibe.
Pattern: Because teal is such a flexible color, it shows up in a ton of different patterns and styles. Persian and Oriental round teal rugs may exude an air of elegance and tradition, while rugs that feature geometric shapes and abstract lines can set the tone as more modern and easy-going.
Shade/Pairings: Another way that round teal rugs are so versatile is how many shades of teal are available. Bright teal is obviously excellent for youthful and vibrant spaces, but you can also find dusty teal in more rustic homes and even formal spaces. You can even mix teal with other colors to help establish the tone even further. There’s a ton of variations and combinations out there, so whatever style you want your home to exude, a round teal rug can be the perfect addition to round out your room.
