Whether you live on a lake, by the sea or in the city, you can get that coastal look in your home. With the right furniture, decorations and wall art, the coastal look can make your home a comfy spot to enjoy. But you’ll also need to consider the right rug to tie it all together. Regardless of your floor type, here are some great rugs to bring that coastal look into your home.
Natural Fiber Rugs
The most classic rug in a coastal home is the natural fiber rug. These are often made of sisal, jute, or seagrass. While they mostly come in their natural wheat, tan or beige color, some are dyed. The natural color mimics the sand along the beach and goes well with brighter colors.
The NF131K is a Safavieh rug made of power-loomed sisal. It’s available in multiple sizes so you can use a smaller one as a welcome mat. Place a runner in a hallway to carry the coastal theme throughout the house.
Elijah Seagrass with Border
For seagrass, try this rug in a natural color. Elijah Seagrass is available with a beige or black border. With a large variety of sizes, you can use this rug all over the house.
Blue and Aqua Rugs
Both blue and aqua are featured rug colors in coastal decor. A large solid blue rug can carry the color of the sky into your home. If you have a water view, make your room feel like it floats on the sea by adding blue to the floor. A soft aqua softens the room. It too can mimic the sky or the variety of colors in the ocean.
For a solid blue, LDD01 will blend with the sky and color of the ocean making your room a peaceful retreat. This color looks great on light wood floors and layered over a natural color sisal, jute or seagrass rug. Made of 100% polyester, this rug is handmade.
Chunky Loop Jute
Another solid blue rug with that coastal vibe is the natural fiber Chunky Loop Jute by NuLoom. It’s only available as a runner but would look great by a patio door, next to a bed or down a hallway. Its chunky, hand-knotted weave provides a texture that’s reminiscent of the old family beach house.
A blue rug for a coastal vibe can be both fun and classy. This sand dollar motif rug by Dalyn is a great example. Matched with the right furniture you can have an inviting yet formal look. Use it with more casual furnishing and it becomes a fun rug to enjoy. Made of hand-tufted polyester and acrylic, it is highly durable and soft. Dalyn has a beautiful Seaside collection for other classic coastal rug designs.
MTK972G is made of hand-woven cotton for softness underfoot. Into the base color of soft lime green are woven blue, red, purple, orange and white; all the colors of a sunset over the water. Bound with tassels at each end, this is a comfy rug for a coastal beach house. Combine it with bamboo or wicker furnishings and patterned pillows.
Not only is MTK612H a trellis design, popular to coastal decor, but its soft aqua and ivory lighten the area. Handwoven cotton makes it extra soft and durable.
Palms for a Tropical Look
Palm trees are popular for tropical decor. A rug with palm designs, whether it’s a whole tree or just a palm frond, can add a tropical feel.
Here’s a great example of a palm rug design. This tan rug with large, coral-colored palm leaves looks great indoors and out. Machine woven polypropylene makes it durable and weatherproof. If you want to try the hottest color for 2019, Pantone’s Coral, this rug’s a close match.
Another rug with a tropical leaf pattern is Kaleen’s SEA09. A bright green, yellow and white rug features large palm and other tropical leaves. The fun colors and oversized designs work indoors and out.
Rippling Water Designs
LTH-7030 gives the image of light dancing off rippling water. Striped in uneven spaces, this rug’s energy is like the soft motion of water on an inlet. This rug comes in multiple colors of ivory, pacific blue, and malachite green and would look great in any room. Made of 100% hand-tufted wool it’s soft and durable. Match this rug with white or off-white furniture to highlight the blue and green design.
For another wavy design try wave. With a vigorous motion portrayed in wavy lines, this rug’s colors have variety in hues. Great for indoor and outdoor use.
Nautical Novelty Rugs
Nautical designs are striped, bordered, trellis patterned or include designs that remind us of the sea. Sea creatures, waves, and boat motifs are just a few of these. Some nautical rugs can be considered novelty rugs since their designs are more whimsical and might be best suited for a colorful beach house, a playroom, or outdoors.
Sea Horsing Around
Jaipur’s indoor/outdoor rug with a seahorse motif in blues and alabaster. This is a fun novelty rug. Match it with bamboo-style furniture. Find cushions in a complementing color or use a neutral to match the rug.
Ocean Scene is another coastal novelty rug for both indoor and outdoor use. The design on a light blue background features a variety of sea life. Brightly colored with darker blues, reds, and greens this hand-tufted rug is available in multiple sizes.
2010 Sea of Fish
A fish rug would give any room a coastal atmosphere. This rug is a fun design in blue, covered with colorful fish passing each other as they swim from side to side. This is a perfect rug for a playroom or a bedroom.
Many indoor/outdoor rugs are sized for entryways. Some people enjoy a lot of whimsy at their door to greet guests. Trans-Ocean by Liora Manne has a fine collection of tropical and nautical doormats to choose from.
Sassy Lassies is an example of a whimsical beach doormat. This doormat features three happy dogs enjoying the day with a patio umbrella overhead. Sporting sunglasses and floppy hats, these lassies are even enjoying some tropical beverages.
Another example features a tiki hut. Surrounded by tropical foliage and sand, there are two pairs of sandals and two surfboards outside the hut. With a red flag flying, it’s certainly time to get out of the water. Put this mat to welcome friends to your house when surfing isn’t an option.
