Picking a Modern Yellow Rug
If you’re like most people, the most challenging part of finding a modern yellow rug to update your home isn’t finding a design you like. It’s choosing between several designs you’ve fallen in love with. Unfortunately, we can’t make it easier to choose between designs, but we can help you narrow down your options.
Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite tips for identifying what you want and need from your modern yellow area rug. Keep reading to find the rug of your dreams.
Color and Pattern
Match your rug with the existing color palette and theme in the room that you're decorating for the best results. For example, suppose you're decorating a contemporary space with a white, grey, black, and gold palette. In that case, a modern grey and yellow rug could be a great fit, as could a modern yellow and black rug.
On the other hand, if you’re decorating a bright and colorful transitional or mid-century modern area, you might prefer a modern bright yellow rug. You can use the search filters to refine your search by style and size to display rugs that fit exactly what you’re looking for.
Material and Durability
You want your rug to be durable enough to stand up to excess moisture, soil, sunlight, and shoe traffic exposure in the room that you’re decorating. This will allow you to keep your modern yellow rug clean and beautiful for years to come.
Look for materials that you can keep clean in your household, no matter how busy it is. Homes with elevated levels of exposure might do best with an indoor/outdoor material that can be washed with a hose or in the washer. Low-traffic spaces are ideal candidates for more delicate materials, like wool, silk, and viscose.
Size and Shape
Measure the room you’re decorating and choose a size and shape for your rug accordingly. Rectangular shapes work well in most spaces, but you’ll also have round, square, and oval shapes to choose between.
Ideally, you want to keep around 24" of space between the edges of your rug and the walls. To make sure you've picked the correct size before you complete your purchase, give our Room Visualizer Tool a try. You can also check out our Rug Size Guide if you have more rug size questions.
We recommend that you place your modern yellow rug on a rug pad to protect it for years to come. Rug pads safeguard the backing and pile against surface and friction damage while keeping the rug in place.
