Modern and traditional rugsHow to Pair Modern and Traditional Rugs in Your Living Space

If you have a large living space in your home, you’ve probably considered decorating with multiple rugs. This can make a room more lively and interesting, with multiple focal points to draw the eye. But how do you choose the right combination of colors, shades, patterns, and styles to ensure the look is cohesive?

You can hire an interior designer, or you can read this blog.

One of the most popular methods is to pair rugs with similar colors but different designs. A traditional rug along with a modern rug can go together if the colors are quite similar. Mixing patterns with colors in the same shade family can result in a pleasing aesthetic. Consider using the most trendy colors to keep the space fresh. Light blues, grays, tans, and rusts are easy on the eyes while also being quite current.

Traditional medallions pair well with the abstract designs that are common in modern pieces. This pairing keeps your home from feeling stagnant, as can be the case when traditional rugs are paired with conventional accessories and furniture. Too often, traditional patterns make an already traditionally decorated room appear stuffy. On the other hand, modern rugs may need something to temper their simple designs. By mixing these two types of patterns, you are left with a room that has character and intrigue.

In general, contemporary colored rugs go together regardless of whether the design is modern or traditional. Pair traditionally designed and colored rugs in rich reds and blues with traditionally designed rugs.

And there you have it, all the ways you can mix and match different rugs by using colors and patterns to create a welcoming living space.
