What makes round rugs ideal for the modern home?

Round rugs are a unique choice for your well-appointed contemporary home. With an eye-catching, circular design, a round rug is the perfect way to add texture, pattern, and/or color to your space. Round rugs also go a long way toward distinguishing one area from the next. At 2Modern, we’ve curated a breathtaking collection of modern round rugs to help you take your interior design to the next level.

What features should I consider when choosing a contemporary round rug?

Color

Use your round rug area rug to introduce a bold pop of color or enhance the color palette in your space. Choose a neutral beige hue to bring earthy warmth, or opt for a gray shade for cool-toned charm. Go for a daring, bright shade of red to make a strong statement, or use a round contemporary rug in a lovely shade of blue to create a calm and cool look. Make a clean, bright choice with a round white rug, or play up the rich, sophisticated color scheme in your home with a round rug in a deep black hue.

Styles

Take advantage of the opportunity to reimagine the style in your home with a modern round rug. Round mid-century modern rugs invite retro charm, while round modern area rugs make an upscale addition to any space. Round farmhouse rugs add warmth and create an inviting ambiance, and traditional rugs bring a timeless touch of elegance to your room. Avant garde rugs are a one-of-a-kind choice, while minimalist designs are a chic, sleek option.

Sizes

Consider the dimensions of your room and the size of the rug you plan to purchase. Your rug should fit comfortably within the space, and you should allow for ample floor space around the rug. Typically, 4’ round rugs are best for small seating areas or to define and enhance a corner reading nook. 6’ round rugs work well in small living rooms or nurseries. For a moderately-sized living room or bedroom, you’ll want to look at 8’ round rugs. For large-scale spaces, 10’ round rugs are a wise choice. Be sure that all furniture pieces in your space at least touch the rug, that there is adequate space to comfortably move between furniture, and that you leave ample floor space outside of the perimeter of the rug.

Room Placement

Placement goes hand-in-hand with size. Round living room rugs tend to be larger in scale, pulling together your seating area and adding a comfortable accent. Round dining room rugs should match the scale and size of your dining table. Round modern rugs are ideal for use beneath a complementary round table, and they should be large enough that all of your dining chairs fit on the rug - even when they’re pulled out. Small round kitchen rugs are ideal for the breakfast nook or in your kitchen itself, creating the appearance of a larger space.

Material

Another important consideration is the material of your contemporary round rug. This decision will depend heavily upon your lifestyle and the room in which the rug will be placed. For example, round poly blend or cotton rugs are durable and easy to clean, making them ideal for use in the kitchen or dining room. Wool rugs are high-quality, upscale, and best suited for living rooms or bedrooms. Round jute rugs are cleanable and sturdy, working well in spaces from the entryway to the sun room. Round polypropylene rugs are a brilliant all-weather option (in some cases), which makes them a wise choice for outdoor use.
