How a Round Tropical Rugs Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A round tropical rug can highlight your room’s decor by adding in tropical flair through the color scheme and imagery on the rug. You can carry motifs from the rug’s design into the other decor, like wall art, pillows, poufs, and other decor. Or, even if you don’t do that, your rug can highlight your room’s decor by serving as a color connection between the rug and the decor.
Decorating with a Round Tropical Rug
When you’re decorating with a round tropical rug, you can go bold with a jungle/tropical theme, or you can go subtle. A lot of that depends on the pattern of the rug itself and the overall color scheme, as well as what you pair with it decor wise. We will cover that more in depth in a moment, but for now, just know that you can go as subtle or as bold as you want with tropical rugs.
Choosing Which Round Tropical Rug is Right for You
Because there are so many ways to decorate with a round tropical rug, you may be wondering how to choose the right one for you. Well, if you think through a few key areas, you can narrow your search and be confident in the rug you choose.
Position/Size: Early on, you should determine the rug’s position in your room’s layout and the appropriate size for that layout. Here are some ideas.
Living Room: A round tropical area rug can be centered with your main furniture, and most commonly, you’ll find the front leg or two of the furniture will rest on the rug. However, you could also use a smaller round rug to establish a small social corner, coffee seat, or reading nook in your living room.
Dining Room: It makes the most sense to center a round tropical rug beneath a round dining room table, just as long as you have enough room for the chairs to sit comfortably on the rug whether they’re pushed in or pulled out.
Bedroom: You can place a round tropical rug under the bottom two-thirds of the bed if the bed is the center focal point of the room. If your bed is off to one side, you can still place a round rug in the middle of the room itself. Or, if you want to establish a smaller sitting area, you can use a round rug there.
Entryway: Depending on your entryway size and layout, you may be able to use a round tropical rug in the middle of the room to establish the tone and connect the rug to your other decor.
Outdoors: Round tropical rugs are commonplace outdoors, and their layout will be inspired by similar indoor spaces. Typically larger rugs will be used, such as an 8 foot round tropical area rug or a 10 foot round tropical rug.
Pattern: There are so many options for round tropical rug patterns and designs, and the complexity of the pattern is a big factor in how bold you go with your tropical theming. Some rugs will have sprawling designs filled with various jungle leaves and flowers, while others may stick to simply palm leaves. Plus, there are other rugs that simply include the tropical motifs in the form of a border. Consider how bold you want to go with your theming and choose a rug that strikes the proper balance.
Colors: Like pattern, color is crucial in determining how bold you go with your theming. Rugs that stick to neutral colors like black, white, grey, or white tend to be more subtle just because of their neutral color scheme.There are other options as well that use many shades of green, blue, red, and so on. Think through the other decor you have in the room, and make sure that either the colors connect or the patterns/motifs are tied together (or even both!)
