Modern Rug Ideas For Your Living Room

Posted by Simple Style Co on

A well-chosen living room rug will effortlessly transform a room, quickly changing the look and feel of a space. With more and more homeowners choosing to have hard floors (such as laminate, hybrid or polished concrete) throughout their homes, area rugs also offer many practical benefits including warming your home and reducing noise.

What are modern rugs?

When we think of modern floor rugs, we tend to think of bold colours and abstract patterns, but contemporary rug designs can also be quite subtle or even offer a modern take on traditional design – the spectrum is really quite broad. If you prefer vintage rugs you can find our collection here.  

No matter your style or budget, modern rugs are a great addition to any interior style. From contemporary to bohemian, these pieces can either be the hero that packs a big visual impact, or subtly act as the anchor that ties a room together.  

We’ve rounded up our top 10 modern living room rugs that will enhance your living area:
