3 Simple Ways to Use Rugs To Fit Your Modern Home Décor

When it comes to home decor, there is a lot to think about. One thing that many do not pay much attention to is rugs. We usually take rugs for granted as they lie flat on the floor but placing the right one in the right spot can look like pure work of art and provide the living space with a whole new vibe when you find the perfect one. 

As we said, a rug can be both beautiful and eye-catching, but also so sober in its appearance that it blends in with the rest of the room. No matter what type of rug you choose, it almost always makes the room feel complete and homely. Rugs also help to dampen sharp sounds and thus create a more comfortable environment in your home.

Decorating with rugs can be difficult. A tip is to start thinking about what function you are looking for and what the rug should add to the room. Then you can start thinking about color choices, whether you want modern contemporary area rugs or traditional ones, and determine what type works best based on activities you perform in the concrete space.

Below we offer you some other excellent tips that you should keep in mind when it comes to using rugs to fit in your modern home decor.

Soft Rugs For Children’s Rooms And Bedrooms

In a children’s room, there can be many parameters to consider that do not necessarily have much to do with inspiring decor. A large rug is, for example, a good alternative instead of a rug that is difficult to replace and dust off, or if necessary be able to wash. With a large rug, it also gets warm and lovely for the feet and it provides a large seating area to be able to play on the floor.

Another important aspect to keep in mind when it comes to rugs for the children’s room is for them to be as environmentally friendly as possible and manufactured without the use of unnecessary chemicals. Nowadays, there are countless options of different environmentally friendly recycled rugs that are well suited for the children’s room and that are manufactured sustainably.

Whether you are tired in the morning or hurry up when the alarm clock rings, you want to be greeted by something soft and wonderful when you put your feet down. We recommend furry and large rugs for the bedroom, which extend around the entire bed. To get a calm feeling in the bedroom, you can also think about decorating with a rug that goes in the same color scheme as other furnishings.

Create Boundaries With Rugs in the Kitchen and Living Room

To add a modern touch to a kitchen with an open floor plan, you can place the rug so it frames the kitchen table and chairs in a nice way that creates clear boundaries in the room. Also, remember to choose your kitchen rug with care so that you can easily get rid of any food leftovers that may otherwise be hidden in the rug. If you choose a rug with a slightly longer pile, make sure that the pile has a loop and is tight.

The living room, a place for socializing and resting, can feel cozy and give a warm impression with a rug that is large and soft on the feet. A larger rug in the living room provides a nice wholeness and framing. To make the sofa part look extra inviting, place the rug a bit under the sofa. With an open floor plan, the function of the rug can also be important to divide the room.

Choose a Large Rug Rather Than a Rug That’s Too Small

The most important thing is, of course, that the rug you choose harmonizes with your home and your style. But size is also very important when it comes to choosing a rug. Measure beforehand how big a rug it is that you need so that you don’t risk buying one that is too small. 

A rug that is not large enough risks “disappearing” under the rest of the furniture if it doesn’t take up enough space! The rug should be at least as wide as the sofa, preferably wider and if the rug is to be under the kitchen table, a good rule of thumb is that all kitchen chairs should fit on it even when they are pulled back.

Final Words

Rugs are an essential part of modern interior decor as they contribute with their lovely colors, structure, and patterns. The rooms will get a more personal and unique character when decorated with versatile rugs and bring positive energy into the entire home.
