Decorating with a Washable 9x12 Rug
When you decorate with a washable 9x12 area rug, you aren’t limited to one particular style or color scheme. That’s good news for creative freedom, but perhaps you’re not sure what to do with that freedom or how to pair decorative accents with your machine washable 9x12 area rug. As a general guideline, you want the tone and mood of the rug to be carried throughout the room. So, if your rug is modern and geometric, look for ways to incorporate that aesthetic in your wall art, accessories, pillows, and other pieces of decor. You can also coordinate the colors so that they’re in the same family and express the same mood.
Choosing which Washable 9x12 Rugs is Right for You
There are a ton of washable 9x12 rugs out there, so you may find yourself drowning in all the options. To help narrow down your search, think through some of these topics.
Position: There’s no one right way to do the layout of a room, but here are some general guidelines to help you determine if a 9x12 washable area rug is the right size for you.
Living Room: In these rooms, rugs are often placed either completely under the furniture, under the front two legs, or resting in front of it. Your rug can also look most natural when it’s centered in the middle of a seating area, such as evenly spaced between two rows of seats or in the middle of a “U” setup. Of course, the overlap or lack thereof depends on the overall size of your living room as well.
Dining Room: If your dining room is smaller, a 9x12 machine washable rug may be the perfect fit under your table. Just remember that the rug should cover enough space that the chairs can sit comfortably on the rug whether they’re pushed in or pulled out.
Bedroom: A machine washable 9x12 area rug could fit perfectly when it’s completely beneath your bed or under the bottom ? of it.
Misc: There are plenty of other rooms that would benefit from a 9x12 washable rug, such as playrooms, offices, guest rooms, and lounges. In these rooms, you can do well to center it with the other furniture, such as under the desk, in the middle of a playroom, etc.
Thickness: There are different levels of thickness and plushness with rugs, and what thickness is best for you depends on your home and if you’re layering it with other rugs or furnishings. Our 9x12 washable area rugs are available in low and flat thickness, but if you want a more plush rug with the benefits of being washable, you can purchase padding to go beneath it to add cushioning and serve as grip.
Pattern/Design: Machine washable 9x12 area rugs are a popular choice in many homes and styles, so you’ll find that there’s a wide array of designs out there. From Oriental and Persian patterns to geometric and striped, there’s so many designs to choose from. When you’re narrowing your search, think about the overall tone and style of your room, and how the pattern of the rug fits into that tone or furthers the design style.
Colors: There are plenty of rugs out there that incorporate neutral tones like white, brown, beige, and black, but there are also other colors that are either included with the neutral tones or are blended with other hues. No color is locked into one particular interior design style--it’s more about the brightness of the color, what color it’s designed with, and the pattern that it falls into. You can use the color palette of the rug to establish an entire room’s color scheme, or it can serve as a connecting piece in a room that already has a set scheme. Regardless, there are plenty of choices out there for machine washable 9x12 area rugs for you to choose from, so you’re bound to find one that’s right for your home.
