Rugs for All Rooms and Styles
Suddenly the living room pops to life with personality thanks to a contemporary area rug or decorative floor covering. Modern rugs and floor coverings are those rare design gems that offer instant color and texture gratification anywhere they are placed. They unite pieces of furniture, anchoring them together like Cheerios that mysteriously gravitate in a bowl of milk. From thick pile rugs to polyvinyl utility mats, large area rugs and more, these designer rugs go a long way in giving a room atmosphere and substance.
Where Rugs Work Best
Rugs are really an ideal fit for any room of the house. Available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and styles, every space happily welcomes a designer rug. Living rooms benefit from contemporary area rugs, which cover a lot of ground and have no problem handling the amount of foot traffic that occurs in the living room. Consider utility mats or floor mats for the kitchen and a large area rug positioned underneath the dining table. Formal dinner guests will be sure to enjoy the added accent in the room. For homes filled with hardwood floors, you'll instantly appreciate the comfort of a plush rug beneath your feet in the living room or bedroom. Long runner rugs are perfect for hallways and you can easily enhance the comfort of the throne room by pairing your towels with a bath mat. Lastly, add a bit of charm to your exterior living areas with deck, patio and other outdoor rugs. These options enhance the decor of the space while having no trouble withstanding the elements.
A Modern Rug Design For Every Style
Whether your home follows a traditional decorative aesthetic or is ultra-modern and awe-inspiring, any of these rugs can be the perfect fit. You'll find comfort in the soft, plush floor coverings that will have you enjoying laying on the floor or have your rug serve an optimal functional purpose with any of the indoor / outdoor utility mats available. Look to the luxurious rugs from Linie Design for a modern area rug that is sure to enhance the comfort of the living room. Well-made plynl mats from Chilewich are surprisingly easy to clean and suitable for kitchens, dining rooms and outdoor locations. We especially enjoy pairing a Chilewich floor mat with equally stylish Chilewich place settings at the dining table. Finally, for a design rich with history, style and craftsmanship, check out the rugs from Nanimarquina.
How to Choose the Best Rugs
The contemporary rugs in this assortment are offered in a diverse range of sizes and shapes to accommodate any home decor needs. From large circular rugs meant for the living room to square and rectangular rugs fit for the dining room or long runner rugs that find their home in the hallway, here you will find the perfect size you need for your space. When shopping for a new rug, mat or any type of floor covering, be sure to refine your results by size. Carefully measure the space where you plan to place a rug, being mindful of specific width dimensions. While most area rugs are large and cover a wide amount of room, runner rugs and mats are entirely different. Consider the material of the rug as well. Do you prefer a thick, plush floor covering or one that only supports a function of utility? The type of material of the rug chosen may also lend itself to its color. Most designs add a unique accent to your home, while there are some exuberant options that will really add a pop of radiance. And finally, think about how the rug will blend in with the rest of your home decor. How can a floor covering complement lighting, furniture and other unique implements you feature throughout your house?
