Is it worth spending money on luxury modern rugs? In our opinion, the answer is always yes. A luxury rug is a real investment piece for the home. It will stand the test of time and add value in many different ways. Below, we’ve shared just some of the reasons why modern rugs are a practical home purchase.

Make your home more comfortable and cosy
Luxury modern rugs will make your home more cosy and comfortable, whilst helping to lock in warmth, particularly in the winter. They’re much more pleasant to walk on that wooden flooring and can make your home feel more welcoming to guests.
We highly recommend laying a fluffy rug by your bed to prevent having to step out onto a stone cold floor. It’ll make getting up on those cold, early mornings that little bit easier. If you’ve got young children who are learning to crawl or walk, rugs can also provide a more comfortable and safer environment for them to move across.

Coloured rugs will instantly refresh your home
Looking to update your home quickly and easily? Adding a rug is a great way to refresh the colour scheme without having to paint. Brighten up darker rooms with bold coloured modern rugs (see the Linie Design collection for inspiration) or choose something with a stylish pattern to give your room a new focal point.
Modern rugs will hide a multitude of sins
As hardwearing as flooring is, eventually you are bound to notice some scratches and stains. Some may be easy to buff out with various cleaning products but if the damage is a little more permanent, you may want to consider hiding them with a rug. Contemporary rugs are a great way of covering up superficial flooring issues so only you will know what’s hiding underneath!
We’d also recommend investing in a rug to protect new flooring. A rug will prevent wear and tear and keep your flooring in pristine condition for longer.
Reduce noise in your home with a soundproofing rug from Louis De Poortere
Soundproof your home with a textured rug
Thick, textured rugs are great for absorbing sound and reducing noise levels, particularly on exposed wooden floors. If you live in an upstairs flat and are worried about the noise for your neighbours below, laying down a rug or two may help you feel less paranoid.
Alleviate allergy symptoms with modern rugs
Many people wrongly assume that home furnishings like rugs and carpets are bad for those suffering with allergies. Truth is, investing in modern rugs for your home may actually help to alleviate symptoms. By trapping allergens in a rug’s fibres, you can reduce the amount in the air, making your home environment more comfortable for allergy sufferers.
You can take rugs with you
Unlike carpets, modern rugs are something you can take with you, if you choose to move house. This is why it’s worth spending a little more on a luxury rug you really love. Over the years, you can move it into different rooms in your home or even into a new house. There are no limits! It’ll keep on giving.
