How a Brown Oriental Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A brown oriental rug can highlight your room’s decor by blending into your room’s color palette and style. Aside from that, your rug can thematically tie to the rest of the decor through similar tone and imagery so that the room feels cohesive stylistically and perfectly reflects your personal style.
Decorating With a Brown Oriental Rug
When you’re decorating with a oriental rug, you have plenty of options to choose from in terms of specific designs, color palettes, pile heights, sizes, and other key aspects. With so many different ways to customize and specify your brown oriential rug’s look, you can definitely find a rug out there that’s just right for your home.
Choosing Which Brown Oriental Rug is Right for You
Since there are so many options out there, you may be wondering where to even begin your search. One of the best ways to approach the process is to think through a few key areas.
Position: First up, look at your room and decide on the final layout. Once that’s settled, you can decide exactly where to place your brown oriental area rug.
Living Room: To establish your main seating area as the place to be, center a large area rug in the middle of the space. Within that layout, you have the option of setting the rug in front of the seats, beneath the front legs, or further under the chairs. Another idea is to use a small brown oriental rug in a separate corner of the room for a unique sitting area.
Dining Room: When you center a rug beneath your dining room table, measure so that there’s an extra two-three feet of rug on each side so that there’s plenty of room for the chairs.
Bedroom: If your bed is a central focal point of the room, you can further accent it by laying a rug partway or all the way under your bed. Another common setup is to have the bed off to one side of the room and center a rug in the middle of the room itself to provide that visual interest and connect multiple areas of the room.
Kitchen: 2x3 and 3x5 brown oriental rugs are great for accenting your kitchen sink or stove area. If you have a longer stretch to dress up, use a oriental runner rug to add comfort and style to those same spaces.
Bathroom: Bathrooms will use similar sized rugs to kitchens. 2x3/3x5 rugs can be placed in front of a tub, shower, or sink(s). To personalize your vanity, try a brown oriental runner rug centered with the vanity.
Outdoors: Finally, you can personalize your deck, patio, or porch with a brown oriental outdoor rug. Refer back to similar indoor spaces for layout inspiration.
Size/Shape: Now that you’ve considered the room’s layout, you can finalize the size and shape of your brown oriental area rug. Both of these aspects depend on the size of the room and how you’re going to layer the rug with your other furniture, so be sure to look at your specific situation to choose what’s best for you.
Pattern: Within brown oriental rugs, you still have plenty of options in terms of patterns and designs. You can find rugs with borders, rugs that have one central medallion, rugs that use smaller details, and many others. Be sure to choose a pattern that connects thematically to the rest of the space and isn’t too busy/too basic.
Color: Even in the category of brown rugs, you still have plenty of options in terms of what brown you use and what other colors are in the design. Check out patterns that use brown with black, blue, white, red, and other popular colors to fit into your room’s color palette and create your style.
