Modern Area Rugs - Great For Making A Room More Lively

Dec 23, 2007
Do you have a certain portion of the room that is just crying out for a bright accent? The cheapest, and probably quickest way, to make that space more lively is with an area rug. This does not mean the boring old antique area rugs but rather rugs with a modern design. Modern area rug designs and styles of area rugs can add a brightness of color to any room, modern or antique.

When you are choosing a modern area rug to have in your living room it is more a matter of your taste than anything else. You are able to get modern rugs that have bold patterns, bright colors, and easy to take care of materials. When you go to buy a rug make sure you know the size of the room, the people who will use the rug, and the type of mood you want to set.

The most traditional place for you to keep an area rug is the living room. The design of the rug can do much more in a living room than just cover your floor. If you choose the right design with the right color, you can brighten your room, darken your room, make it seem larger, more cheerier, or even more formal.

You probably need some general rules when buying a modern area rug for your living room, so here they are:

-If you have a large living room you should try to avoid rugs with busy small patterns. Rugs that are like this in a large living room generally make the room feel like it is too cluttered.

-The same goes with small living rooms though. If you have a small living room avoid large patterns. Large patterns in a small living room make the room look smaller.

-If your living room is a dark place you should try adding a warm, sunny tone. Warm, bright colors brighten up the room and make it feel more alive.

-If you have modern or contemporary furniture you should pick bright abstracts in primary colors. What this does is sets off the stark lines of the furniture.

-When looking to create a finished, unified look to a large room you need to pick a border pattern. Border patterns are very good when creating a unifies look to any room, especially if you are going to have a conversational grouping in that room.

If you want to liven up a certain room, make it look brighter or darker, more modern or formal, a modern area rug can accomplish this.
