How a Teal Abstract Rug can Highlight your Room Decor
Abstract rugs, by nature, can be a stunning work of art or a simple rug that fades into the background. Whatever function you need your teal abstract rug to fill stylistically, you can find one that highlights your room’s decor by contributing the color palette of your decor or connecting shapes, textures, and tone throughout the room’s decor.
Decorating with a Teal Abstract Rug
Teal is a popular color in a variety of interior design styles, and even teal abstract rugs aren’t limited to just contemporary or modern interior design. There are rugs that come in patterns that are reminiscent of the beach, or of a country landscape, or rich marble tones. No matter what interior design style you’re looking at for your home, you can find an abstract teal rug that can fit your mold and serve as that perfect example of your style.
Choosing which Teal Abstract Rug is Right for You
Narrowing down your search may seem like a gargantuan task, but if you think through a few of these areas, you’ll be well on your way to finding the teal abstract rug that’s right for you.
Position: One of the early steps should be to finalize the room’s layout and determine how you want the rug to fit into that layout. There are no set rules, but there are some common layouts that work for a majority of rooms.
Living Rooms: A teal abstract rug often works best centered with the main seating, and the rug can be either completely in front of the furniture, under its front two legs, or completely beneath the furniture.
Dining Rooms: The abstract teal rug can sit beneath the dining room table, with enough excess on the sides that the chairs rest comfortably on the rug at all times.
Bedroom: One of the most common layouts for bedrooms is to place the rug centered beneath the bed, either ? of the way under the bottom half of it or completely beneath if. However, if your bed is off to the side, you can also center the rug in the middle of the bedroom itself.
Kitchen: 2x3 teal abstract rugs can fit well in front of a sink or anywhere else you often stand still. Runner rugs are also a good choice for galley kitchens or narrow paths in kitchens, like inside of a kitchen island.
Bathrooms: Bathrooms are similar to kitchens in that they benefit from rugs in front of sinks, and runners also work naturally in narrow paths or in front of a double vanity.
Outdoors: Teal abstract rugs are also available as outdoor rugs, so consider decorating your outdoor seating and dining spaces with a teal abstract area rug.
Size: Once you’ve finalized your layout, consider the size of the rug. Make sure that the rug isn’t too large or small in comparison to the furniture and the overall size of the room; striking the proper scale with all the room’s furniture, accessories, and decor will ensure that the room feels balanced and unified.
Shape: Abstract teal rugs come in the standard round and rectangular shapes, but there are other shapes as well. Playing with the shape of the rug itself is a fun way to break away from the norm, but you can also stick with a standard shape when going for simplicity or blending the abstract design of the rug with more traditional styles.
Pattern: The artistic nature of abstract teal rugs means that they come in many different designs. Some may have curved lines reminiscent of marble, while others are more splotchy. Even more may show off geometric shapes, lines, and grids. When you’re narrowing your search for a pattern, think about the overall tone of your room as well as what other shapes and designs you have around the room. Choosing a rug with similar shapes/lines/patterns is a good way to tie your decorations back to the rug.
Colors: Aside from thinking through the shade of teal, you should also think about what other colors are in the rug. Common color schemes for teal abstract area rugs tend to use teal along with gold, beige, gray, and other neutral tones. However, the blend of the colors and the brightness of those hues will be a big factor in determining the rug’s overall tone, so when you’re shopping, think through the overall mood you want the rug to evoke and find colors that convey that mood.
