A teal doormat can accentuate any entry by welcoming your guests in with a pop of color and introducing the tone of the room immediately all in one fell swoop. Not only can it set the tone for that room itself, but it calso set the mood for the entire home and establish a motif that is used throughout the home’s decor and theming.
Decorating with a Teal Doormat
When you’re decorating with a teal doormat, think of how you can compliment the rug’s color palette and pattern in other areas, whether that’s in the same area or not. For example, if you decorate with a teal doormat outside of your front door, you can include teal in other decorative elements like subtle flowers on a wreath, any potted plants, or miscellaneous decorations.
Choosing which Teal Doormat is Right for You
Because a teal doormat can be so effective in establishing a home’s style and welcoming your friends and family in, you want to take your search seriously to choose one that most effectively works for you and your home. Fortunately, if you think through some of these areas, you’ll be well on your way to finding a teal doormat that’s perfect for you.
Location, location, location: Do you plan on placing your teal doormat outside of a door, or right inside? What is the overall size of the space, and do you want this rug to be the primary focal point or are you going to include another rug elsewhere in the area? Thinking through these questions will help you determine where the ideal place is from a practical standpoint and guide you towards the size that’s right for that space and that purpose.
Practicality: When you’re shopping for a teal doormat, make sure that it has a non-slip backing. It’s vital to include that, because the purpose of a doormat is to be both functional and beautiful, and without the function, it’s hard to enjoy the beauty.
Pattern: Teal door mats come in various different patterns and can fit into different interior design styles. Some doormats have tile-like patterns that are classic and vintage while others may be more Oriental and upscale. Once again, the doormat is an opportunity to introduce the house’s style and tone from the start, so think carefully about how the pattern contributes to that interior design style and mood.
Color Scheme: Not only does the pattern help establish a certain style, but so does the color scheme. The teal you choose can be bright and vibrant or it can be subdued and muted. Plus, whatever other colors are in the rug can help set the scheme and guide you in what decorative pieces to add to the entryway and your whole house.
