A beautiful modern area rug can really update and add style to a living room, bedroom, office or dining room. I’ve scoured the web for the best deals on stylish modern and Boho rugs, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your space.
The best part? They’re all under $200 for at least a 6’x9′ rug at the time of this writing. That’s important, because a little 4’x6′ rug is probably not going to do your living room much good.
Why Neutral Area Rugs?
I do love color, and I sometimes use colorful rugs in my designs. If you’re looking for a more colorful rug, check out this post.
But I find that most people are more comfortable with a neutral rug that is stylish, but not the main focal point of the room.
Also, since a rug is generally one of the more expensive pieces in a room, it needs to last longer than say, a throw pillow. Neutral rugs stand the test of time, because you can change your color scheme in a few years when mauve is no longer the “it” color, and the rug will still look great in your space.
But a word of caution if you have young kids, pets, or wear shoes in the house like we do… white and cream rugs don’t hide dirt well. Trust me, I’ve made this mistake more than once!
So I recommend choosing something with a busier pattern and/or slightly darker color. Most of the rugs in this post should hide dirt just fine.
