Modern Rugs are transforming your home. Living Room Alive is a new concept that is arising, where contemporary rugs are slowly becoming ever more important in a home design. The connection of contemporary rugs and design are becoming more relevant, as interior designers are looking to bring more art expressing elements into their design. Perhaps no room in the home is more emblematic of mid-century modern design spaces than the living room, and boundless examples of mid-century modern living rooms with requisite furnishings and accessories are available. Countless styles of quality contemporary rugs and modern rugs are available, created using the traditional fine art of rug making, but utilizing modern designs.
The question is how to marry a beautifully crafted contemporary rug with a mid-century modern style living room. Here are some thoughts to bear in mind when making your choice of a fine contemporary rug for your modern decor:
Put aside the design and color of the rug, and look first the quality and beautifully made rugs.
Have a eye on Antique Designs
Mid-century modern style harkens back to the earlier and simpler tribal or nomadic designs. These rugs, with simple, graphic designs and brighter colors, are quite compatible with modern design.
Stick with Design Basics
There are certain rules that apply to choosing a rug, which depends on wide variety of factors ranging from furniture to different appliances, color, etc. Therefore, stick with Design Basics of Rugs.
More on Color
Because color has such a profound impact in the feel of a room, it’s a topic that deserves close attention in planning an interior space, including while choosing a rug. Mid-century colors usually blend darker, neutral tones with bright or deep accent hues.
Cleaning Contemporary area rugs
- Vacuum your area rugs just as often as you vacuum your carpet or sweep your hard floors. Be careful not to suck up any rug fringe with the vacuum as this could damage the fringe.
- Brush out any hair. Whether it’s hair on a bathroom rug or pet hair on the living room area rug it’s possible that the vacuum will miss the hair.
- Rotate the area rugs a couple of times per year. Traffic and sunlight can add more stress on them which could wear out one side of the rug before the other.
- If you have smaller rugs, take them out back and give them a good shake to remove the dirt and grime.
