Rugs – Modern Designs, Traditional Feel

Rugs are one of the most popular features in many people’s homes and they have the fairly unique capacity to utterly transform the feel of a room. This is why when it comes to redesigning a room, most people start with rugs and go from there. Modern or contemporary rugs are obviously better suited to more recent buildings whereas styles such as Persian may well look more appropriate in homes that have features to complement the style. Just some of the design elements to consider when it comes to purchasing a new rug:

Pattern– Whether you opt for traditional rugs or modern rugs, the most important thing to ensure is that the pattern on rugs or runners doesn not clash with the wallpaper, curtains or colour of the room in general.

Size– Rugs can come in more or less in any size or shape, so it is vitally important to measure the room first to ensure that the rug will not only fit in the room but also that it is not of a size that will overwhelm it.

Cost– The cost of rugs also varies widely and you are sure to find traditional rugs and contemporary rugs and runners to suit all budgets. Typically, the cost of rugs is dependent not only on the size of the rug but also on the material from which it is made.
