Why Use Modern Rugs Modern area rugs are a wonderful way to add softness and warmth to a room. Modern contemporary rugs can also be used to tie your color scheme together, add color and pattern to a room design, define areas within a large space and anchor your furniture in the room.Things to Consider When Purchasing a Modern RugPlacement – There are several ways to arrange your furniture around a modern living room rug. The most common layout is to select a rug large enough that you can place the front legs of any chairs, sofas and side tables on top of the rug. This provides a nice sense of proportion while tying the pieces together.Another common option is to purchase a rug large enough that all four legs for each piece of furniture will fit on the rug. Placing all the furniture on the rug creates a strong connected feeling in the room.This placement is also the ideal choice for modern bedroom rugs. In order for the rug to look balanced underneath the bed, it should extend around the perimeter of the bed a minimum of 18 inches for a king or queen bed and 12 inches for a full or twin bed.However, if you are placing a dining room rug, the dining table is placed in the center with the rug extending out 24 inches on all sides. This allows all the dining room chairs to remain completely on the rug even when in use which makes maneuvering the chairs easier. These same placement rules apply to the placement of outdoor area rugs as well.Shape – Modern area rugs are available in many shapes and sizes. From traditional rectangular rugs to square rugs and round rugs to irregularly shaped rugs, you can find just the right rug for your space. When selecting the right shape you’ll want to consider your furniture and space. For example, a round rug is a nice complement to a round coffee table or dining table, but requires more space for placement. Round rugs or irregularly shaped rugs also do well in a nursery or kids' room.Selecting the Right Style, Material, and Pile When deciding on the material and pile of your rug, the most important consideration is the foot traffic of the room and whether you have children or pets. Wool – The most common choice for area rugs. Modern wool rugs offer durability, softness, and insulating properties. These rugs are great for high-traffic areas, living rooms, and dining rooms. Silk – Silk area rugs offer softness and a subtle sheen that is sure to please. Providing finer details than a wool rug, modern silk rugs are best for bedrooms and low traffic areas. Cotton – Cotton is popular for weaving dhurrie, kililm, and flat-weave area rugs. Cotton rugs are affordable, easy to clean, and work great in kitchens, children's rooms and casual spaces. Sisal, Jute, Sea Grass – The natural grasses and fibers used for these unique rugs are strong and generally renewable and chemical free. Due to their course nature, these natural area rugs are most suited for living rooms, high traffic areas, and sunny spaces. Animal Skins – These types of leather rugs run anywhere from standard shapes to the irregular shapes you find with a natural hide. Leather and hide area rugs look great in bedrooms, offices, dens and low-traffic areas. Synthetics – Synthetic fiber rugs are woven using man-made fibers and handle damp environments better than most rugs. Some synthetic fiber rugs can even be used outdoors depending on the material. They are also great for high-traffic areas and sunny rooms. Outdoor Rugs – Modern outdoor rugs offer vibrant colors and patterns but they're not as plush and soft as indoor area rugs. The most important consideration for selecting a modern outdoor rug is the ability to handle wet conditions and drainage.Essentially art for your floor, modern areas rugs transform your home by adding warmth, comfort, color and personality to the home.

All RugsWhen it comes to decorating or redecorating a space, having the right rug in an area can really do a lot for the ambience and the overall feeling of the room. Beyond aesthetics, rugs are useful for many reasons, as they protect against slips and falls due to uncovered, slippery floors, and help protect beautiful hardwood floors in your home. Rugs can be one of the first things to inhabit a room to set the tone or chosen after your furniture is picked out or in conjunction with the first piece of wall art being hung. Here at west elm, we have a myriad of rug styles to help you not only decorate your world by offering the best in contemporary styling, but also offering years of protection against wear and tear on your valuable hardwoods.One of the first things to consider when purchasing a rug is the type of construction you’d prefer. Construction type often has a lot to do with pile height, which is the height of the rug that you feel underneath your feet. Inside your home, comfort is key, and keep in mind you’ll often be walking on your new rug in stocking feet or barefoot. Some prefer a generous pile height, while others prefer feeling next to nothing underneath their feet. Natural fibers, such as wool, jute or cotton, have a more luxurious feeling, while synthetic fibers such as polypropylene have a tendency to be more flat, with less of a pile height. This is simply a good thing to remember as you’re contemplating a new rug.Color is also important in your rug selection. If the rug is the first item occupying a room, let it complement and match colors with your existing paint scheme or set the tone altogether for decor in the room. If you’re choosing a solid-colored rug, a good thing to keep in mind is that darker colors constrict, and brighter colors enlarge. If you have a rather expansive room that you’d like to make appear more cozy, a darker-colored rug also paired with darker window treatmentscan help provide a more intimate setting. Alternatively, if you have a smaller room you’d like to appear more spacious, use neutral-colored rugs paired with white or off-white drapes and shades to make the space appear larger.Matching room colors with a patterned rug is slightly different, although the same rules of color matching and complementing ring true. A patterned rug will tend to be more of a focal point in your room, as opposed to being a background piece. For this reason, you may want to match decor, furniture and wall art to certain colors in the rug – or vice versa – to help bring them out as focal pieces also. For example, pair an abstract rug that has several tints of blue along with blue painted trim, several blue-themed pieces of decor, or blue curtains colored in a different shade. Should you want to expose and bring out the neutral tones in the rug instead, then you would add more beiges and browns.When it comes to sizing, measure for an area rug before making your final choice, and it’s a good idea to keep the size and shape of accent rugs in mind as well. You may add accent rugs as one of your last pieces of decor, after heavy furniture has moved in. Accent rugs are a great way to protect flooring in smaller and high-traffic areas while still enlivening the decor. For a modern and contemporary look, choose round rugs with bold, geometric patterns to wake up small spaces. Use rug pads with accent rugs, just as we recommend for area rugs as well. Rug pads help keep your rugs in place, protecting everyone in your household against slips and falls. Read More
