The first and most important step when shopping for a new modern rug is sizing. Rugs need to fit a certain proportion compared to the space they are placed in. Usually, people make the mistake of selecting a rug that is too small. Area rugs in particular should expand well beyond all the furniture that will be placed on them. As always, measure your space, then check the dimensions of the rug you are considering first. Once you have your sizing figured out, consider colors, textures are imagery - or in other words, figure out the functional aspects first, then consider aesthetics.
Although they are relegated to the floor, and are all too often a decorating after thought, rugs play a large role in the final look of a space and can totally transform the atmosphere. Try to nail down what you want a rug to do for a space before you go into selecting a rug. Do you want the colors to complement the scheme, or blend in? Do you want to make a room feel cozier, or bring a cool air to the feel of the space? In the end, a rug can really change the feel of a room, so try and consider what type of change you would like to see in the space.
