How would you describe your beach home? Is your décor more coastal? Nautical? Beach inspired? No matter how you categorize your summer space, rest assured there are tons of options for decorating with area rugs. From a tiny kitchen mat to a comfy, sprawling rug in your living room, quality beach décor shops offer completely unique designs that transform a space in an instant. From bright, beautiful, beachy colors to your favorite seafaring creatures and symbols, you’ll find the perfect piece to fill out your space. Here are some ideas for decorating with indoor and outdoor shore rugs.
What are some nice nautical designs for my living room rug?
If you’re looking to jazz up an existing area with a sectional sofa, set of chairs, and coffee table, check out some indoor beach rugs from a reputable retailer. To make your setup cohesive, you want a centrally placed rug that’ll pull together the colors, textures, and patterns of the entire room. Try a beautiful coral hook rug for a pop of color, or an area rug with waves for a nod to the ocean. These resilient designs are soft to the touch but are great for high traffic areas because they’re tightly woven for maximum use.
What kind of rug should I use for a bathroom or kitchen?
Since you won’t need to cover too much space, a bathroom or kitchen usually calls for a small area rug. Discreet enough to place in front of the sink, oven, fridge, or toilet, these accent mats feature your favorite seafaring designs. Consider a cute crab pattern, a majestic lighthouse, funky surfboard, or quaint image of a pretty shoreline. In your seasonal home, it’s okay to take a risk with a flashy color or chic motif. Think outside the box, and a nautical accent rug will work perfectly.
What shore area rugs work on the outside of the house?
At the beach, the weather can be unforgiving, whether it’s the scorching sun or relentless rain during hurricane season. Luckily, you’ll find shore doormats designed to withstand the elements. For your front stoop, check out designs in classic “welcome” fashion, or ones with fun flip flops, martini glasses, sand dollars, palm trees, lighthouses, parrots, and beyond. You’ll love coming home to these amazing pieces every weekend. You’ll also find mats and rugs constructed for both indoor and outdoor use, so consider a durable coastal area rug for the back patio, deck, or pool area.
