How an Orange Bohemian Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
An orange boho rug can highlight your room’s decor by establishing your boho style, contributing to the room’s color palette, and setting the mood. When you shop with the intention of connecting your rug to the other decor, you can find similar patterns and imagery to really hone in your theming and create one cohesive space.
Decorating With an Orange Bohemian Rug
Boho style as a whole has several different branches, and each branch has their own preference to style and color palette. Vintage boho tends to use orange rugs that use bright orange and other vibrant hues in a busy pattern. On the flip side, modern boho often incorporates burnt orange and a more muted color palette. Whichever way your style leans, there’s definitely an orange bohemian area rug out there that’s just right for you.
Choosing Which Orange Bohemian Rug is Right for You
As you shop for an orange bohemian rug, consider these key areas to guide your search process.
Position: First, decide on your room’s layout and how your rug will fit into it. Read over the following ideas and guidelines to get you started.
Living Room: You can easily add an orange boho rug to your living room by centering it with your main seats. Depending on the size of the room and furniture, you may place the rug in front of the chairs, under their front two legs, or all the way beneath them.
Bedroom: For a more traditional layout, center your rug beneath your bed and place it either completely under the bed or under the bottom two-thirds of it. However, you can also lay rugs at angles, off to one side, or elsewhere in the bedroom to make your room feel more eclectic.
Dining Room: Practically speaking, it makes sense to center your orange bohemian rug directly beneath the table. Be sure to leave two-three feet of excess rug for the chairs.
Kitchen: Dress up your kitchen by placing a 2x3 or 3x5 orange boho rug in front of a sink or stove. Orange boho runners are also a great option in narrow galley kitchens, kitchens with an island, or to establish a path elsewhere in the room.
Bathroom: Next, you can dress up your bathroom with a small boho rug in front of a sink, by a tub, or next to a shower. If your bathroom has an open floor plan, you can even center a 4x6 boho rug in the middle of the space.
Outdoors: Carry your style to all your living areas by decorating your patio, porch, deck, or other outdoor space with an outdoor orange boho rug. For layout inspiration, check out similar indoor spaces.
Shape/Size: After you know your ideal layout, it’s time to think about the size rug and what shape you want. For the size, make sure that it’s to scale--that is, it’ll look balanced in comparison to the furniture, room size, and accessories. As for shape, you have several options. Rectangular, round, and runner are the most common shapes, but you can think outside the box with square, oval, and other shapes. Focus on the shape that fits your layout and footprint best to maximize the space and convey your style.
Pattern: Since boho style covers a wide array of designs, you’ll find many different patterns out there. From simple geometric rugs to oriental and persian designs, orange bohemian area rugs showcase a variety of different designs. Focus on finding one that conveys the right tone stylistically and connects to your other decor through similar imagery and shapes.
Color: You may have narrowed your search to orange bohemian rugs, but you still need to determine what shade of orange you’re looking for and how prominent you want it to be in the rug. After all, sunset orange conveys a very different tone than burnt orange. And then there are other colors that may be incorporated in the rug such as blue, red, grey, brown, black, white, and so on. Focus on a color palette that connects to your existing decor and sets the right mood.
