How to choose a nautical rug

Once you are convinced that you want to buy a nautical rug, you should consider the colours of the fabrics, the furniture, the walls and the floors before deciding on the colour of your rug.

Colours have different types of effects depending on their shades and the way we combine them. That is why we should not only choose a colour but also a shade and consider how it changes depending on the light and the rest of the colours we combine them with. In the marine and nautical themes, the predominant colours are the blues and greens, but we will see nautical carpets of all colours and shades.

Getting the colour right is one of the most important and basic aspects of interior decoration. There are colours that cheer and stimulate, others relax us and allow us to concentrate and there are colours that illuminate. I will show you how each one works in conjunction with nautical motifs and marine designs.

Colours and types of nautical rugs

Before choosing a colour palette, we must understand how each one behaves, how they can change the personality of a space and the influence they have on our emotions.

As a rule, light marine colours illuminate and visually expand the spaces and dark deep-sea colours are warmer and more sophisticated and make the same space more intimate and welcoming.

dark blue nautical rug

Colours also affect our emotions. Before selecting a colour to decorate the floors or walls of a room, we must be clear about what its purpose is going to be:

  • If we want to concentrate and work, we can choose warm and energetic colours.
  • If we are looking for calm and relaxation, as for example in a bedroom, we will choose a warm tone such as blue as a calm and luminous sea.

Some tips to get the right colour of your nautical rug

  • Before choosing the colour of a carpet, it is important to consider our lifestyle and the use we are going to give to the room where we place it.
  • To decorate the floor of a children’s room, opt for active colours that are creative and cheerful.
  • If you are going to buy a rug for your bedroom floor, don’t forget that blue and green are warm colours that invite you to relax.
  • A red rug helps transform a boring living room into a space with personality.
  • If you like the colour pink, don’t overdo it with accessories in this colour unless your aim is to create an ultra-feminine space.
  • Blues counteract the stress of offices and office buildings.
  • Greys and stones hide stains very well. If cleaning is your priority, choose a rug in one of these colours.
  • A black carpet should only be placed in spaces with a lot of natural light, otherwise, the result can be somewhat gloomy.
  • Choose yellow to welcome in your home, yellows and oranges light up and convey happiness.
  • A neutral rug will balance out the decoration of too bright spaces while a bold red carpet can brighten up a dull and boring room.
  • Always mix active and passive colours in the same decoration: If you use only active colours the result can be a bit overwhelming while if you use only the range of passive colours you can end up with a rather boring decoration.
