How a Tan & Beige Shag Area Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A tan & beige shag area rug can highlight your room’s decor by reinforcing the overarching style, color palette, and tone. Rugs can be a unifying factor in your room’s design by including those similarities and similar imagery/shapes in the design so that it ties to the rest of the wall art, pillows, poufs, and other decor.
Decorating With a Tan & Beige Shag Area Rug
There are many reasons why decorating with a tan & beige shag rug is a good choice practically and stylistically. For one thing, shag rugs are very comfortable in terms of texture, pile-height, and plushness. Then there’s the matter of all the options with designs, sizes, shapes, and other key aspects. All this goes to show just how adaptable tan & beige shag area rugs are and how you can find one that’s truly perfect for you.
Choosing Which Tan & Beige Shag Area Rug is Right for You
As you look for your perfect rug, it’s important to think through some key areas.
Position: First, determine your room’s layout and where you want to place a rug. These general ideas will guide you in the right direction.
Living Room: Tan & beige shag area rugs are often used to define your main seating area. If that’s your goal, then place your rug in the middle of the arrangement and either have the rug in front of the seats or under their front legs. You can do something similar elsewhere in the living room if you have a smaller sitting area you want to define.
Dining Room: If you want to add comfort and style to your dining room, then you can center a tan & beige shag rug directly beneath your table. To make sure you have the right size, keep an extra two feet of rug on each side/end so the chairs have plenty of room to move around.
Bedroom: In rooms where the bed is centered on a wall and is the main focal point, you can accentuate that by laying your shag rug directly beneath the bed. You have options in terms of how far under the bed it is, but popular options are to place it all the way under it, under the bottom two-thirds of it, or closer to the foot of the bed. Another idea is to have your bed off to one side of the room and center the rug in the middle of the room itself.
Kitchen: 2x3 and 3x5 shag rugs are often placed right in front of a sink or anywhere else you tend to stand still. Alternatively, you can use a tan & beige shag runner rug along that space as well to give more comfort and style.
Bathroom: Smaller rugs are often used in the bathroom as well, such as 2x3 rugs being placed by a tub, shower, or sink. However, runners are also ideal in front of a double vanity or in another narrow area.
Size/Shape: Once the layout’s set, you can finalize the size and shape of your rug. The most common shapes to work with are round, rectangular, and runner, but there are other options out there as well like square, oval, etc. As for size, there are popular choices like 5x7, 8x10, and even square/round options like 10x10. Be sure to look at your specific layout, room size, and how you want to layer the rug with the furniture when deciding on the size and shape of your rug.
Pattern: Beige shag rugs come in many different designs so you can choose one that perfectly fits your style. Check out options that range from classic stripes all the way to contemporary, abstract waves and so many other designs. When you look at patterns, refer back to your existing decor for shapes, imagery, and tone that can carry over into the rug’s design.
Color: Even within beige and tan shag rugs, you still have a lot to consider with color. For example, think about what shades of beige and tan you want and which color(s) you want in the forefront. Then you’ll be better equipped to choose a rug’s color palette that fits in with the rest of the room and conveys a consistent tone.
