Picking the Right White Oval Rug
With so many beautiful rugs to choose from, the most challenging part for many of us is picking between several options that we love. Suppose you decide exactly what you want before you buy. In that case, you can narrow down the options and make choosing the perfect white oval area rug easier. And we’re happy to help.
We’ve listed some tips below to help you decide what size, material, and style is best for your white oval rug. Keep reading to learn more.
Color and Style
White is a neutral color that goes with every color palette. Look at the existing colors in your room to decide what shade of white you’d like, if it matters to you, and any accent colors you'd like to include in your rug design. For example, a blue and white oval rug or black and white oval rug might work well in a room with a white, blue, black, and grey color palette.
For style, consider the interior decor in your space and look for a rug that will fit in. You might use a modern design to update a traditional space, or pick a matching style to ensure your rug looks excellent with your area.
Texture and Material
The material your rug is made from will impact its durability. Consider the levels of moisture, soil, shoe traffic, and sunlight that your rug will be exposed to, and pick the texture and material accordingly. You want something that you can keep clean and beautiful for years to come.
For example, white oval bath rugs are often made from moisture-resistant synthetic materials. A white oval jute rug offers durability, but it wouldn’t stand up to the levels of moisture in a bathroom. Likewise, if you’re decorating a low-traffic bedroom, you might choose an oval white shag rug made from wool. And if you’re decorating a medium traffic living room, a black and white oval braided rug might be a better fit.
Any white oval braided rug will benefit from the braided construction, making it more resistant to ground in dirt. Always read about the materials your rug is made from and their cleaning requirements before you buy. Check out our Rug Buying Guide for more info.
Do you need a small white oval rug or a large white oval rug? Measure your space carefully and choose a size that will leave at least 12” to 24” between the edges of your rug and the walls. Give our room visualizer tool a try to ensure your new rug will be the perfect fit for your space.
We recommend placing your white oval rug on a quality rug pad to minimize early signs of wear. A rug pad will keep your rug in place while reducing friction and surface damage to both the backing and pile.
