Decorating Your Home with Blue Rugs
Typically associated with natural elements such as water and clear skies, the colour blue is often used to evoke a sense of calm and relaxation when applied to interior design.
From ultramarine chaise lounges to sapphire chandeliers, blue offers a vast range of possible ways to accentuate your home decor with a touch of peace and mystique.
However, incorporating blue into your design plan may be more difficult to accomplish in comparison to other more commonly used colours. Adding blue tones to your living space can make or break the overall look and feel of your home, depending on how you choose to apply this colour and which shades of blue you end up picking.
That said, one of the most effective and easiest ways to mix some blue into your layout without compromising the entire design is with a quality blue rug to complement your furniture and other accessories.
With a little bit of creativity and careful planning, a blue rug can do wonders for any room by adding in an extra layer of depth and dimension.
3 Simple Design Tips for Blue Rugs
Thinking of getting a blue rug but not sure where it should go? Here’s 3 simple design tips for using a blue rug to spruce up your interior:
1. Emphasize the “serenity” and tranquility of your room with a subtle blue rug.
While blue in general is connected with feelings of calm and placidness, different shades of blue can be used for specific settings and colour palettes to elicit a suitable sense of peacefulness.
For example, a lighter ‘baby’ blue colour often goes well with brightly lit spaces and hues that fall on the lighter side.
Beyond the traditional use of light blue colours when decorating children’s rooms, a light blue rug can also help to open up a space where darker colours are present. Against a navy blue background, an aquamarine or faded blue rug provides some soft contrast and makes the room feel more inviting and welcoming to guests.
Using a blue rug to pair or match with other shades of blue is also a great way to outfit your space with hints of calm and stillness that call to mind quiet ocean waves and the hush of a trickling brook.
This also makes blue rugs a perfect addition to any lakeview or waterside properties, where any variation of blue is sure to mirror the cool and soothing vibes outside.
2. Go for an Outlandish Design with a Bold Flair
If you’re going to opt for an uniquely designed blue rug, then there’s no point in being delicate about it!
While some blue rugs may be more conservative in their style, you can find plenty of abstract and bold blue rugs at Jamila Rugs.
Decked out in all sorts of fascinating shapes and patterns, these eye-catching blue rugs pair well with contemporary and adventurous trends in home decor, from geometric inspirations to modernized vintage looks.
Large area rugs with different blue tones are wonderful for ideating if you’re just beginning to plan a makeover for your lounge room or open seating area. The use of blue as a way of contrasting colours is especially helpful in these situations where you want to make certain colours or pieces of furniture pop out.
3. Deliver a Luxurious and Chic Appeal with Royal Blue Rugs
There’s a reason why royalty is often referred to as “blue-blooded.”
In combination with other regal colours such as gold and purple, blue is notable for its association with timeless fashion and elegance.
In fact, the popularity of bright and faded blue tones in more historically based interiors makes similarly coloured blue rugs perfect for cultivating a touch of class and politesse without coming across as snooty or outdated.
While too much blue can leave your space feeling cold and lifeless, the strategic placement of duotone blue rugs can elevate your home decor tastefully.
If you’re only able to find solid blue rugs, you can still create a ritzy ambiance by adding yellow and gold furnishings to underline the blue tones.
How to Use Blue Rugs Throughout Your Home
1. Centrestage in the lounge room
The centre of attention in your lounge or living room is almost always your sofa.
If you have a large coffee table in the middle of the room, you’ll want to buy a softer blue rug to blend into the rest of the space and not draw attention away from the main points of attraction.
However, if you have a large open space in the centre, this is a great opportunity to present a beautifully designed blue rug, so long as the style doesn’t clash with your overall theme.
2. Under your dining table
Following the same principles of purchasing a rug for your lounge room, any blue rug you place in your dining room will be best positioned underneath the dining table and should be large enough to contain the chairs when pushed back.
That makes the dining room a great space for solid-coloured blue rugs that aren’t too flamboyant but still offer some interesting contrast to the rest of the room.
3. On your kitchen floor
If you’re looking for a blue rug to adorn your kitchen floor, make sure you get a rug that is easy to maintain and stain-resistant.
That said, a simple dark blue rug runner can make all the difference in many kitchens with stainless steel appliances that lack vibrance and colour.
4. In your bedroom
We recommend an airy, fluffy light blue rug to throw underneath your bed. The light blue tones help to keep your bedroom in cheery spirits and mesh well with fresh skies and bright rays of sun in the morning.
Round blue rugs are also a subtle way to highlight a corner chair or chaise longue.
5. Match your shower curtains.
Lastly, a blue rug or mat in the bathroom is great for echoing dark blue tones from your shower curtain or hand towels.
For those who want a bit more of an extravagant look, a navy blue rug pairs well with gold and bronze features to breathe an air of royalty into your bathroom.
