Do it with Contemporary Style Rugs


When considering furnishing a contemporary dwelling, it is important to consider the design elements that make up your home. Consider the colour scheme. Most contemporary dwellings have simple light colour schemes. When looking for floor coverings, make sure that the colour will work. The material is also worth consideration. A modern home with uncovered floors would benefit from deep pile carpets, where a carpeted property may require a flat-weave.


Rugs of all sizes and colours are available online, and can help to tie a room together, either with similar colours or a daring splash of bright colour. A large rug in the centre of a minimal sitting room can really help to bring focus to the living area. Angles and lines can also be well offset by a geometric design. There are many rugs with daring contemporary designs that work perfectly in juxtaposition with simple colour schemes. For those with more looking for more balance, but who still wish to bring a touch of movement to their home, there are many rugs available with linear design. Carved rugs have raised textures in patterns and colours to suit many contemporary spaces.

Rugs do not have to be plain or geometric. Large rugs bearing pictures of animals, iconic design such as the VW Camper Van and famous logos can be stylish, and also allow you to show your lighter side, and personal tastes. Iconic designs from the sixties are very popular, and online rug specialists have a wide range of these stylish floor coverings. Simple faunal designs such as bamboo or leaf designs bring nature into the modern home. Animal print rugs are a popular alternative to skins as they are ecologically more desirable. Many contemporary spaces make use of interesting shapes; circular staircases, curved baths and open plan kitchens. Crescent, oval and circular rugs can help to define the shape of a space.



Due to their modern machine production, modern rugs are more affordable than traditional examples. The materials are also durable and easy to clean. It is easy to buy rugs for every room in your house on a budget.


Rug Zone stocks a full range of rugs with stylish monochrome designs, modern patterns and colourful explosions. With free and fast delivery and great customer service, there are rugs to suit all contemporary spaces.

Ah love a bit of flat weave, me!

Florence_Anzio_Grey 

That’s flat woven rugs if you didn’t already know. These are rugs that have no pile to speak of the surface texture resembles a blanket rather than a carpet. Many of these are woven like heavy throws using wool, cotton or acrylic fabrics better known as Kilim rugs. You know the sort of thing you’d expect to see in a shop Laura Ashley.. The type of thing you won’t find on our website, simply because in my opinion they are not worth the money. They never stay in place, curl up and move on virtually any surface you put them on. It is literally like having a blanket on the floor.
