A blue plaid rug can highlight your room’s decor by reinforcing the color palette, setting the tone, and fitting into your overarching style. The right rug will accentuate your room’s decor because when your rug and decor work towards the same stylistic goal, it actually allows each piece to shine as a part of the grand design.
Plaid is a classic pattern that often appears within certain styles. It may be the right pattern for you if you lean into vintage, traditional, farmhouse, coastal, or some other homey design. Even if you enjoy a modern scheme, you can find very simple plaid rugs that fit into contemporary designs while harkening back to those homey styles listed above.
Since there are so many choices out there for blue plaid area rugs, you may be wondering how to find one that’s perfect for you. Start by thinking through these important topics and that will guide you through the process.
Position: One of your first steps should be to look at your room’s layout and decide where a rug would best fit within that space.
Living Room: Center a rug within your main seating area to establish that as a central focal point. You can choose a blue plaid rug that sits in front of the seats, under the front legs, or further under the chairs.
Dining Room: The most common way to set up a dining room is to center your rug beneath the table. Be sure to leave about two-three feet of excess rug on each side of the table so that when the chairs are pushed in and out, they’ll still be on the rug.
Bedroom: If your bed is the main focal point of the room, add to that by laying a rug beneath the bed. Your rug can be 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 off to one side, try setting a rug in the middle of the room or right along the side of the bed to add visual interest to the center of the room.
Kitchen: 2x3 or 3x5 rugs are often used in front of kitchen sinks or stoves to provide comfort and style. Another great idea for kitchens is to place a blue plaid runner rug in a narrow pathway and center it in that space or in front of the sink.
Bathroom: Similar to kitchens, you can use a runner rug centered in front of sinks or in a narrow walkway. Those smaller 2x3 and 3x5 rugs are also good options for in front of a tub, shower, or sink.
Outdoors: Blue plaid area rugs are also available for your outdoor spaces, so think about adding one to your deck, patio, or porch. Look back at similar indoor spaces for layout inspiration.
Shape/Size: Once the layout is figured out, you can decide what shape and size rug will fit best in that configuration. Both of these aspects are key in making sure the room looks visually balanced and that the rug won’t be too large or too small for the area. Shape plays a part in that too, since the shape of the rug can impact the rug’s tone. For example, round/oval rugs can convey a softer tone than rectangular ones since they don’t have rigid corners. However, you should choose the shape that works best in your layout, since there are other factors that affect the rug’s tone.
Pattern: Not all plaid patterns are alike. Some will fit more into vintage patterns, some country, and others buffalo plaid for farmhouse homes. There are also different sizes of patterns, so some will use large squares/checker patterns and others will use very minute, small details. Ultimately, the pattern you choose should fit into your preferred style and set your desired tone.
Color: Even though you’ve narrowed your search to blue plaid rugs, you still need to decide a few things with color. For one thing, you have options with your shade of blue. Options range from navy blue to light blue and then include other tones like teal blue, sky blue, and others. Then, there are often other colors in the rug like yellow, white, green, etc. When you’re looking at rugs, be sure to choose a color palette that goes with the rest of the room and sets the same mood.
