These oval rugs 4x6 are the perfect size for almost any room in your home, and they’re available in so many colors that there’s something for everyone!
When an interior decorator uses an oval rug, it’s usually to create the illusion of more space while capturing the softness of the shape. With oval rugs, you can do this in any area that needs a bit of insulation and softness on the floor. From the kitchen to the bedroom, nowhere is off-limits.
While you can’t use 4x6 oval rugs to fill an ample space, like a dining room or bedroom, they're perfect for setups in which the furniture doesn't sit on the rug. The following ideas will help you see how a professional might use oval rugs 4x6 in a home:
You can place oval area rugs 4x6 in smaller living rooms, where only the coffee table sits on the rug. In some setups, you might also put the front feet of the living room furniture on the rug.
You can use braided 4x6 oval rugs as an earthy addition to entryways, sitting spaces, reading nooks, and even kitchens. Braided rugs look particularly natural in an oval shape, and you can choose from several colors and patterns.
You can also use these oval rugs in the bedroom beside the bed. This is good for setups in which the bed sits to one side of the room, not where the bed will be placed directly over the rug.
A Closer Look at Oval Rugs 4x6
With the smaller size and rounded shape, these 4x6 oval rugs are perfect for any space that you want to feel larger. They're also excellent for children's rooms, play areas, laundry rooms, and anywhere else in your home.
Oval rugs make people feel more at ease in a room when compared to rectangular rugs, and they can make a minimalist area seem less intense.
Is a 4x6 Oval Rug Right for Me?
Before you buy your new rug, measure the space in which you want to use it to ensure you have the right size. You want at least 12 inches between the edges of your rug and the wall, but you don't want the rug to be too small for the space either. If necessary, map out where your rug will sit with painter’s tape to visualize the 4x6 size.
If the size is correct, the following tips will help you select the right rug for your home:
Color: With the help of an online color picker or color wheel, examine your home’s current décor colors and decide on options for your rug.
Style: If your home is decorated in a distinct style, search for rugs that are designed to work with your existing décor.
Material and Thickness: Low-traffic areas that don’t see much soil can house rugs with thicker piles and delicate materials. Meanwhile, high-traffic areas call for thinner rugs and durable materials.
Choosing the Perfect 4x6 Oval Rugs
Enter your color, style, material, and thickness preferences into the filters to make the results more manageable. And remember to buy a pad to add a layer of cushioning and keep the rug in place.
