A typical rug collection ranges from sophisticated geometric rugs, contemporary rugs to fancy coastal ones and so much in between. If that’s too much to chew on, modern area rugs can characteristically be identified as ‘being more Western’.

Don’t let the name fool you though because just like their traditional counterparts, most of the modern carpets are woven in the Middle East and Asia. Understandably, prices of these rugs vary from one location to another given the variation in material and labor cost. Economic conditions over the years have meant that Pakistani rugs are cheaper in comparison to Middle Eastern ones.

Thanks to the variety of Modern area rugs, you have thousands of options to choose from. Unfortunately though, the greater the variety at your disposal, the tougher it is to find your perfect rug. 

How do you buy that pitch-perfect new rug? 

For starters, you need to consider quite a few factors while shopping for rugs.

1 - Placement

As earlier established in the article, rugs used across rooms differ on quality, shape, and size. First of all, size matters! The first thing that you need to figure out is the void that needs filling. An easy way would be to arrange newspapers as reminiscent for carpet and taking a measurement. For proportion, you may want to buy a rug that can be tucked under much of the furniture.

That’s on you to decide. Modern area rugs offer a range of designs-some hard, while others comparatively soft, some dark shaded, while others are bright. You can even choose if you want a more formal of a rug or a bit funkier one. Two things that you need to keep in your mind while deciding upon the pattern of the rug are:

  1. Your Personal Taste-Do you want your room to feel energized? Or are you more of a sophisticated guy? Even better, do you want your room to have a natural feel about it? Our collection includes Boho Chic, Contemporary, Coastal, Neutral area, Geometric, Braided Jute and Flatweave, amongst others.
  2. Décor- Does your décor pair well with the rug? The main purpose of modern fiber rugs is to regulate the flow across surroundings and to liven up the room. Typically, colorful rugs pair well with dull décor and vice versa.

3 - Selecting the Right Material

The selection of the right material depends on the foot-traffic of the room and the nature of the traffic. In case you have children, you would want the surface to be soft. Similarly, if you have pets, you’d prefer your rug to be hard-wearing and easy to clean. That having been said, durability is an important factor regardless. Characteristics of some commonly used materials are listed below:

4 - Modern Wool Rugs

Wool rugs are both soft and durable. They also tend to carry insulating properties. Add that to availability of elegant designs and you know the reason why wool rugs are so popular. These properties ensure that woolen rugs are well suited for high-traffic areas such as your living room. The only downside as far as wool rugs are concerned is the cost. You, though, don’t need to worry about the cost if you are getting them at up to 50 percent off.

5 - Silk Rugs

If you have ever worn Silk clothes, you probably know what to expect. Silk rugs offer uncanny softness and an aesthetic subtle sheen. Such rugs are crafted with unusual attention to detail and are the perfect solution to your bedroom décor tantrums. Delicate, silk rugs don’t fare well in areas with high footfalls. This, however, doesn’t mean that silk rugs are not durable. They very much are!

6 - Cotton Rugs

These properties emphasize the use of jute rugs in high-traffic areas. Modern Jute rugs have their limitations too. Crafted of natural fibers, the rugs are quite absorbent and unsuitable for use in damp areas.

8 - Animal Skin Rugs

Modern leather rugs are beautifully crafted and can be a handy décor for your apartment. They come in all shapes, regular, irregular, just name it. Often used as a symbol of power and authority, leather rugs  (just like all leather products) are controversial, to say the least.

9 - Polypropene Rugs

Polypropene rugs are known for their skillful patterns, bright flashy shades, and durability. Not only is the fabric hard-wearing and easy to clean, but it is also resistant to chemicals, sunlight, and stains. They are quite similar to woolen rugs, except that they are water-resistant too and definitely less costly. While polypropene rugs have a point or two up woolen rugs, they don’t possess the same softness. Instead, they tend to feel sticky when touched. 

10 - Who do you Buy From?

No matter how financially stable you are, the least you want is to be robbed of your money. The threat of being scammed increases manifolds when you buy online. Hence, you need to be careful while buying carpets. Here are a few precautions to start by:

  1. Buy from trusted, verified sellers
  2. Don’t look for large discounts because more often than not, ‘Too good a deal is no deal’
  3. Ask Questions! Until you are satisfied. If your gut feeling says no, go by your gut!
  4. Think logically!
