Modern & Contemporary Rugs

Modern and contemporary rugs are popular floor coverings for elevating the look of your home. Unlike traditional rugs, which feature intricate patterns and bold colors, modern and contemporary rugs often have simpler designs and a neutral color palette.

These rugs are prized for their clean lines and minimalist aesthetic and are a popular choice for homeowners and businesses.

At Rug Goddess, we have an extensive selection of modern and contemporary rugs, and our experienced design team can help you find the perfect high-quality rugs for your space. 

How to Choose a Modern or Contemporary Rug

With so many styles of rugs on the market, choosing the right one for your home can be difficult. If you’re looking for a modern or contemporary rug, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Home Decor Style

One of the most important considerations when choosing a contemporary rug is the overall style of your home. The primary color scheme and materials of your furniture can help you decide on a complementary pattern or design. For example, a brightly-colored rug can bring a splash of exciting color to a neutral or leather-based room, while a solid-colored neutral rug can pull together an already-busy room.

The size of the room and the amount of traffic it receives will also help you choose the right rug for your home; a larger rug will anchor a space, while you can use a smaller rug to define an area or create visual interest.

Size

Figuring out what size rug you need can be challenging. If you choose a rug that’s too small, it will look out of place, and your room will appear unfinished. However, a rug that’s too large can make your space feel cramped and cluttered.

The first thing you should do is measure the dimensions of the room. Leave 1-2 feet of clearance room between the rug’s perimeter and the room’s walls to avoid a crowded look.

If you’re struggling to find a rug that is the perfect size, get a little creative. Layering multiple smaller rugs can provide the flexibility necessary to fit a uniquely-shaped room while allowing you an opportunity to customize the room’s look.

For example, a base layer of a larger, neutral-colored rug topped with a smaller, vividly patterned rug can be more aesthetically appealing than either rug alone. Just be sure to coordinate the colors of the carpets with your overall room design.

Materials

Different materials are used to construct modern and contemporary rugs. At Rug Goddess, we offer stylish and contemporary rugs in a range of high-quality materials, from pure wool to silky Luxcelle™ rayon to polyester-viscose blends.

The best material for your space depends on the level of foot traffic. If you are looking for a rug for a high-traffic area, you’ll want a material that can withstand wear and tear. Wool is a good choice for high-traffic areas because it's durable, stain resistant, and easy to clean.

One of Rug Goddess’ most popular contemporary wool rugs is our Nourison Prismatic PRS26 Seafoam. This abstract wool rug is durable and perfect for various high-traffic room styles, including entryways.

Rugs made from synthetic materials (such as 100 polypropylene or nylon) are another common choice for high-traffic areas. These rugs are durable, resist fading, and are easy to clean, making them an ideal choice for common areas like walkways or living rooms.

For low-traffic areas, you can afford to prioritize comfort and style over durability. For example, you might want to choose a delicate fabric like silk or linen for a bedroom or home office. These materials add a touch of luxury to your space without being too challenging to care for.

Pattern

A contemporary area rug brings sleek sophistication to your home. Contemporary rugs are often characterized by contrasts and abstract elements and come in many styles and patterns.

The first aspect to consider when deciding on a rug pattern is the room’s existing design. For example, in a contemporary room with colored furniture, an area rug featuring intricate, neutral-colored abstract patterns (like our Jaipur Satellite SAT02 Area Rug) can provide visual contrast to the bold colors of the furniture.

On the other hand, our Jaipur Rize RIZ06 Zaid Wool Area Rug could serve as an appealing neutral base for a room with busy, vibrant furniture and decor.

You should also consider the size of the rug’s pattern. For smaller rooms or spaces with limited furniture, a rug with a large-scale pattern can make a small room feel cramped. Conversely, a rug with a small-scale pattern can be overly busy in a large room.

Our Jaipur Genesis GES03 Combs Area Rug is an excellent example of a small-scale pattern. The small, intricate design components can provide visual interest to a small space but could be overwhelming in a large room.

If you want a rug with a large-scale pattern ideal for a spacious room, try our Kaleen Montage MTG06-75 Area Rug. The larger patterns highlight the room’s space and can provide contrast without dominating the rest of the decor.

Pile Height

An often overlooked aspect when shopping for a rug is pile height. The rug’s pile height indicates the height (or loft) of the rug’s surface fibers. This factor partially determines your rug’s lifespan and overall feel and comfort level. The rug’s pile height significantly affects its cost and value.

There are three main categories of rug pile heights: flatweave, high-pile, and low-pile.

High-Pile Rugs

High-pile rugs contain the tallest, plushest surface fibers of the three types. They are often used in cold climates, as the large fibers trap heat and help keep the ground warm. These rugs are also quite comfortable to walk on due to their high fiber density.

However, high-pile rugs can trap more dust and debris than lower pile rugs, require significantly more maintenance, and often shed their fibers.

Low-Pile Rugs

Low-pile rugs contain fewer, smaller fibers than their high-pile counterparts. As a result, they are often flat and sleek. Low-pile rugs are great for high-traffic areas, such as living or dining rooms.

While low-pile rugs are less luxurious than high-pile rugs, they also offer several advantages. They are easy to clean, suitable for people with indoor or outdoor allergies, and require less upkeep.

Flatweave Rugs

Flatweave rugs, like the Kaleen Nomad NOM04-02, are most commonly made with a loom and are much thinner than the other two varieties. This makes them much easier to clean and enhances the rug’s versatility.

Color

One way to narrow down your rug color options is to look at your home’s existing color palette. If you have a lot of neutrals in your room, choose a rug with a pop of color. Our Nourison Prismatic PRS24 Area Rug provides some interesting color splashes to complement a room with neutral decor.

You may want a more subdued rug if your space is already vibrant. For example, a non-patterned, complimentary-colored contemporary rug, such as our Nourison Weston WES01 Charcoal Area Rug, can be a good choice for a room with dynamic decor.

Construction

There are two main methods of contemporary rug construction: hand-woven and power-loomed.

Hand-woven rugs are made on a loom using hand-spun yarns. The yarns are hand-knotted or hand-tufted onto the backing, resulting in a unique, one-of-a-kind rug.

Power-loomed rugs are made using a machine that uses automated looms to weave the rug. These rugs are usually less expensive than hand-woven rugs and have a more uniform appearance.

Both hand-woven and power-loomed rugs can be made from various materials, including wool, cotton, silk, and synthetic fibers, so the choice between the two often comes down to your budget.

If the price of your rug is a prime consideration, a power-loomed rug would be your best choice. Similarly, if the quality of your rug is your primary consideration, hand-woven rugs can provide a superior level of luxury at a higher price point.

Modern and Contemporary Rug Accessories

Once you have decided on a contemporary rug, you should consider adding rug accessories. An area rug pad can be beneficial for any type of rug. These pads prevent the rug from sliding while extending its lifespan by protecting the underside from dirt and debris.

Rug Goddess offers several types of area rug pads to fit your specific needs. One of our most popular area rug pad offerings is our No-Muv Pre-Cut Area Rug Pad, which comes in six different dimensions, so you can be confident that it will fit your new rug perfectly.
