One of the reasons that so many people avoid the purchase of contemporary rugs is simply because they aren’t sure how to use them in their space. Contemporary floor coverings are not your average rugs. They have unique designs. They are not always symmetrical in their designs, and they often use unique or bold colors. Here are some fail-safe ways that you can make modern floor coverings work in your space.
Make sure that you measure the space, and purchase them accordingly.
Contemporary rugs that are too big or too small will not work. Make sure that you give careful consideration to size, and if in doubt, purchase ones that are about a foot smaller than what you think that you need.
While regular oriental floor coverings can sometimes serve as a focal point in a room, contemporary themed rugs are often designed in such a way that they can be the focal point in the room. Do not be afraid of this, but make sure that this is what you want. If there is something else that you prefer to be the focal point, place the ones that you choose near those pieces or those features.
Balance the Room.
Using the information above make sure that they are not placed solely on one side of the room, making the room have a lopsided feel to it. If necessary, consider purchasing two identical products that do not have symmetrical designs to place on both sides of the room. The identical non-symmetrical patterns will actually give the room the symmetry that it requires.
Determine the main color of your room, and then select one that includes that color – even if it doesn’t appear to be the main color of the rug. The color in the room, combined with the color in the rugs pull together to stand out to the human eye forcing that color to be the main color.
