Have you grown tired of your old decor and are in need of a change? Refurnishing a home can be costly and can be an extensive job. However, some accessories like some budget rugs can jazz up even the dullest of decor. From geometric patterns to bright and bold colours, there is a modern contemporary rug to suit every taste and every home.
Why choose modern rugs?
Updating your decor can be an expensive and time consuming task. However, you can make use of rugs to give your home a contemporary, up to date feel at a much lower price. Geometric patterns can set off plain decor and can also revitalise a simply decorated room. Choose a colour from the design in your modern rug and pick complementary accessories to scatter around the room. For example, choose bold pink and match cushions, throws and lampshades to this colour in your new rug.
Types of modern rug
Contemporary modern rugs come in a wide variety of designs, styles, patterns colours and materials. There are woven rugs, natural rugs, cotton, wool and synthetic modern rugs. In addition, these rugs come in all shapes and sizes. So what type of contemporary rug should you choose? Of course, you should ensure that it complements the existing decor in your chosen room. Although many contemporary rugs come in contrasting colours and patterns, you can choose one colour in your rug to match to the decor. If your rug is going to be placed in an area where there will be a high number of people walking (e.g. hallway) then choose something in a tougher material such as leather or synthetic.
Designs and styles
The retro look is considered very contemporary and is popular in rugs. They often come in geometric designs with very bright colours which were popular in the 60s and 70s. If you are looking for something contemporary but more simplistic, a rug with clean lines or two contrasting colours may work better for you. Try a monochrome look or a striped design in two or three colours. If you are really looking to make your rug an eye catching piece, choose one in an animal print or tribal design. Although they may seem old fashioned, they are now found in a number of modern homes and are considered very contemporary. Contemporary modern rugs can really show off your sense of style and taste when you have visitors. Go for bold brights and geometric designs and match them with complementary accessories.
