Want to Brighten Up Your home? Try a Rug!

Many homeowners are constantly searching for different ways to spruce up their property without spending a fortune.

While accessories like canvases and wall art can offer quick-fix alternatives to redecorating, there may seem like little or nothing that can be done to make your floor look fantastic rather than a complete overhaul.

Think again! That’s because modern rugs offer a versatile fashion decoration that can add a splash of colour and class to pretty much every room in the house.

From bright and cheerful children’s rugs to rugs with a more traditional feel, these simple yet sophisticated pieces of floor art can help to make a house feel like a home.

Rugs can make rooms feel more welcoming and relaxing as well as provide comfort under foot that a carpet simply can’t offer.

Easy on the eyes, easy on the feet and easy on the wallet, a rug is a quick and easy way to add a new look to a room. It breathes new life into a room that may have become a little stagnant over time – and many of us are guilty of putting off the DIY for too long. If this sounds like you then save yourself an arduous job and instead head online to sites like http://www.modern-rugs.co.uk/ to see if there’s a rug that catches your eye.


Shopping online for a rug has made the whole process more convenient. Gone are the days when you need to drag yourself around shop after shop looking for the right type. Nowadays, you can quickly scroll through the different types, different colours and different sizes until you find one that you think is suitable.

Then, with a few clicks, the order is done.  With the option of home delivery, you don’t even have to leave your own house.

  1. I love area rugs! Sadly we had to take ours up because our new puppy keeps using them for a potty.

  2. When we bought our rug for the living room it was such the ordeal… toting it from store to car. car to house. I guess with the luxury of buying online you don’t have to worry about all of that….

  3. I just got a rug for our living room. You are right – it made a HUGE difference! Now to find one for our bedroom for some drama….

  4. I love that rug in the first photo. It is PERFECT for my house. Where can I find it?

  5. Both of those pictures are gorgeous. I’m hoping to put a rug in our library but I cannot for the life of me find one I love…I know it’s coming…but I’m waiting until it’s the perfect one. Good post!

    Would love an area rug in our bedroom. The Little One keeps on lying on the floor e. Malamig kasi. Hehehhe! =)

  7. Definitely, when our area rug came in, our living room was literally lit up!

    This post is for me. I’ve been thinking of ways to revamp the house cheaply. Rug it is!

    Pepper… it is amazing what a simple area rug an do for a room. One would not think about the transformation that it does. Great post! Grace, peace and blessings, Carla.

  10. Love this! I have to say, I’m pretty boring. I’ve only gotten neutral rugs that almost blend into the rest of the flooring. I need to focus more on using the rug as a separate design element to pull other things together. Thanks – those were great photos you included too!

  11. Great idea Pepper! I’d love to have one for our little bedroom.

  12. I agree sis. Rugs/carpets can add flair and drama to an ordinary looking room. It brightens up the place and add texture to the whole ambiance. I love rugs in all shapes and forms. I prefer the modern designs though with geometric shapes and block colors. However, I also like the earth tones one for a more subdued ambiance.

  13. Those rooms look great…if only our house looked like that!

  14. I think I should pass this for now. I have two toddlers in the house and I know for sure the rug will be a mess :))

  15. This is perfect for those who do have kids at home like me! And sure it is, online store made our life easier especially moms who don’t have time to go for shopping in retail shops.
