How a Teal Boho Rugs Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A teal boho rug can highlight your room’s decor by emphasizing your design style and tying together different pieces of decor. The rug’s pattern can bring in shapes and icons that repeat throughout the room’s wall art, pillows, and other decor, but that’s not the only way the rug can put a spotlight on your decor. The color scheme can also carry from the rug to the rest of the decor, or at least share the same tone as all the other decorations.
Decorating with a Teal Boho Rug
When you’re decorating with a teal boho rug, you can lean as far as you want into the boho theme. Boho is a very eclectic style that gives you a lot of freedom with layout and decor, but even if you don’t lean fully into a boho theme, you can still bring it in subtly with the rug’s design and color palette. Teal boho area rugs come in many different designs and styles, so you can truly customize your room to be whatever you want it to be.
Choosing which Teal Boho Rug is Right for You
There’s so much freedom in decorating with a teal boho area rug that you may not know where to even start. Fortunately, if you think through a few key areas, you can easily narrow down your search and hone in your perfect teal boho rug.
Position: One of the first steps is to determine the rug’s position and the room’s layout. Boho style allows you to be more eclectic with the layout by placing the rug at an angle, layering pieces, and so on. For some more standard and subtle ideas, keep reading for general layout inspiration.
Living Rooms: In the living room, you can center a teal boho area rug with the main furniture.You can place a large rug completely under the furniture if you have an open room, but in more enclosed and traditional spaces, you may place the front two legs of the furniture on the rug or have the rug completely in front of the seats.
Dining Room: For practicality’s sake, it’s best to center your boho teal rug directly beneath the table. Just be sure there’s enough excess on the sides and ends for the chairs to sit comfortably on the rug at all times.
Bedroom: In traditional boho rooms, you often center the rug with the bed by placing the rug all the way under the bed or under the bottom two-thirds of it. However, you can also angle and layer rugs in the middle of the bedroom if the bed is off to the side, or even layer rugs at the foot of the bed. The bedroom (and living room) are both rooms where you can be more creative with the layout and layering.
Kitchen: You can even doll up your kitchen with a teal boho rug by placing a 2x3 or 3x5 rug by your sink. In galley kitchens or kitchens with an island, you may want to decorate with a teal boho runner rug to serve as a pathway and practical decor.
Bathroom: Like kitchens, you can place a small teal boho rug in front of a sink, but you can also place one by a shower or tub. Runner rugs can also work well in narrow bathrooms or in front of a double vanity.
Outdoors: Teal boho rugs are also available as outdoor rugs, so you can carry your sense of style to your outdoor spaces as well. For placement guidelines, look to similar indoor spaces for ideas.
Shape: Because boho is a style that is more eccentric, the rugs are available in many different shapes. Round and rectangular may be the most common, but you’ll also find rugs that are shaped like animal hides or have tassels on them. The shape and finishing details of the rug can really convey that boho style, so think carefully about those factors when choosing a rug.
Pattern: Teal boho rugs are available in many patterns, such as aztec and geometric patterns and even more traditional patterns like Oriental and Persian. In general, boho patterns convey a sense of wonder and references to far away lands you may have traveled to. Choose a rug that conveys the mood you want to create and go from there.
Color: Teal boho rugs are rarely just teal; they’re often combined with other colors like blues, whites, browns, and so much more. The color palettes and the brightness of those colors is yet another key factor in setting the mood, so when you’re narrowing your search, think about the mood you want in the room. Do you want it to be loud and vibrant, or more subtle and classic? Whichever way you lean, look for a color scheme that strikes that mood and run with it with the rug and your decor.
