An area rug serves many purposes — it adds comfort to a rough floor, helps to define the space layout, and brings in nice touches of color, personality and texture. Because they take up a lot of surface space, finding modern rugs as a design that complements and enhances your current style, can be a serious headache. Because modern rugs are one of the largest decorative pieces in your space, it should accurately reflect your own interiors style. For those with traditional tastes, such as Persian rugs, floral patterns and bright colors are trendier and more contemporary. In the end, it’s great to mix and match, but avoid conflicting patterns and colors.
