How a Round Entry Rug Can Highlight Your Room Decor
A round entry rug can highlight your room’s decor by emphasizing the room’s color scheme and style. Connecting the color of the rug to the other colors in the room is imperative for making the room feel cohesive and intentional. When you design with the full picture in mind, it allows each decorative item to work together towards one unified vision and inadvertently gives each piece of art its own moment to shine.
Decorating With a Round Entry Rug
The entryway is the gateway into your home, so when you accessorize with a round entryway rug, this is a solid way to not only make this room welcoming, but to also lead into the style of the rest of your home. Whether your style is vintage, modern, or somewhere between, you can find a round entry area rug that specifically fits with your style and conveys it in that room and hints at what’s to come.
Choosing Which Round Entry Rug is Right for You
As you shop for your perfect round entry rug, consider these key areas to help narrow your search so that you can find what you’re truly looking for.
Position: No two entryways are identical, so there are no set rules for how to decorate one. However, with round entry rugs, you’ll find some standard layouts. If you have a grand foyer, you can place a round rug in the middle of the room (you often see this with a small round table atop it as decor). You can also place a round entry rug just inside the room, partly as a doormat and partly as decor. When you do so, center it with another element, such as a bench, artwork, or hanging hooks. Also, if it is right by the door, choose a low pile or flat woven rug so that the door doesn’t get caught on it.
Size: Once again, because there are so many different sizes and shapes of entryways out there, there isn’t one size that fits all entryways. Round entry area rugs are available anywhere from 3 feet around to 10 feet, so you can find a rug that fits your space perfectly.
Pattern: Round entry rugs come in so many different styles and designs that it’s easy to personalize your entryway with a rug that shows off your personal flair. Some interior design styles will be connected with certain designs, such as geometric rugs often fitting in with modern, boho, and southwestern designs. Other patterns with medallions and flowers fit in with traditional, vintage, and even more lavish homes. Your best bet is to find a round entry rug that has a pattern connected to your desired style and look for similar motifs in the other decor to tie it all together.
Color: Aside from the rug’s pattern, color is next in line for determining the rug’s overarching style. Neutral colors like white, black, beige, and gray show up in many different styles, but the intensity of those colors and what other hues they’re combined with determine the rug’s style and tone. With that in mind, look at those colors and other popular colors like blue, red, green, and others to see what combinations compliment your existing decor and strike your desired tone.
Frequently Asked Questions about Round Entry Rugs
What size round entry rug should I choose?
The size of your round entry rug will depend on the size of your entryway and the placement of your furniture. As a general rule, your round entry rug should be large enough to fit comfortably in the space while also allowing for furniture placement, such as a console table or coat rack. A standard size for a round entry rug is 6 feet in diameter.
What materials are commonly used for round entry rugs?
Round entry rugs can be made from a variety of materials, including natural fibers like wool and cotton, as well as synthetic materials like polyester and nylon. The choice of material will depend on your personal preference and the amount of foot traffic your entryway experiences. Natural fibers are often more durable and eco-friendly, but can be more expensive, while synthetic materials are often more affordable and easier to clean.
How can I prevent my round entry rug from slipping
You can use a rug pad or non-slip grip underneath the rug. A rug pad adds cushioning and prevents the rug from sliding, while a non-slip grip adds traction and prevents the rug from bunching or curling at the edges.
