How a Pink Geometric Area Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A pink geometric rug can highlight your room’s decor by contributing to the room’s color scheme, reinforcing the tone, and adding in your personal style. The shapes within your rug can also connect to the decor so that the room feels thematically cohesive. For example, if you have a rug that uses triangles, then you can incorporate similar shapes/lines in pottery, knick-knacks, wall art, poufs, pillows, and other decor. When you look for connective factors like that, you really shine a light on all your decor.
Decorating With a Pink Geometric Area Rug
Pink is often thought of as solely a feminine color, but it branches out far beyond that. You have your pick of how pink you want your rug to be, what shade(s) of pink you include, and the overarching pattern within the rug. These are just a few of the many factors that can impact the tone of the rug and allow you to fully realize your vision for your home.
Choosing Which Pink Geometric Area Rug is Right for You
As you look for a pink geometric area rug that’s perfect for your personal style, consider these key areas.
Position: One of your first steps is to determine your room’s layout and how to fit a rug in that space. These general guidelines will serve to get you started.
Living Room: Center a pink geometric rug within your main seating area to set that space apart. Depending on the size of the room and furniture, you may place the rug in front of the chairs, under the front legs, or further beneath the seats. A smaller pink geometric area rug can also be used in a separate corner to establish another seating area, reading nook, or coffee corner.
Dining Room: When you add a rug to your dining room, center it beneath the table and leave about two or three feet of extra rug on each side of the table so the chairs can be comfortably moved in and out.
Bedroom: If your bed is a centered focal point along a wall, emphasize that by layering a rug with a bed. There are many options, but the most common three are to lay the rug all the way under the bed, under the bottom two-thirds of it, or closer to the foot of the bed. If your bed is against a wall or off to one side, center a rug in the middle of the room or right along the side of the bed.
Kitchen: Small rugs make a big statement in kitchens. Use a 2x3 or 3x5 rug in front of a sink, or use a runner rug in a narrow pathway to establish those spaces, add style, and provide comfort.
Bathroom: 2x3 or 3x5 rugs work well in front of bathroom tubs, sinks, or showers. Runners are also ideal in front of a double vanity or in another narrow walkway.
Outdoors: There’s no reason to limit your style to inside your home; use an outdoor pink geometric area rug on your deck, patio, or porch. Look at similar indoor spaces for layout ideas.
Shape/Size: Next up, finalize the shape and size of your rug. The most common and easiest shapes to work with are round, rectangular, and runner, but there are other options out there for unique layouts or styling. As for size, make sure that your rug won’t be too large or too small for the space. Look at your furniture, the size of the room, and any other fixtures to choose a rug sized to scale.
Pattern: Narrowing your search to pink geometric area rugs definitely does hone in your search, but even within those parameters, you still have so many options to choose from. Modern rugs often utilize geometric shapes, but so do boho, coastal, southwestern, and many other designs. When you choose a rug’s pattern, look at your existing decor for inspiration or study samples of your favorite design. This will help you choose a design that will emphasize your style and not clash against it.
Color: Finally, there’s color to consider. Pink itself comes in many different shades, so you can have your pick of which shade(s) you want in your rug. Aside from that, consider the other colors you want in the rug. Pink geometric area rugs often incorporate colors like white, grey, green, blue, gold, orange, and other hues. Ultimately, your rug’s color palette should use similar colors to the rest of the room, but all the colors in the room should create the same mood and style.
