Whether you need to warm up your living room, add a splash of colour to your bedroom, or find that perfect wall decoration for your study, you can always rely on a rug. However sometimes it can be tricky to find the right rug. What colour should you go for? Do you want shaggy or flatweave? What size do you need? Fear not! With a little help from some of our most style-savvy customers, we've put together some fantastic #rugspo to give you all the inspiration you need.

If you think leaving shoes on in the house is a nasty habit, then you’re not alone. People from all over the world – from Indonesia to Sweden – take their shoes off at the door with no questions asked.

Here at Modern Rugs, we set out to solve the age-old debate as to whether “shoes off” households really are more hygienic than “shoes on” households.

The results we found were shocking. We found “shoes off” households harboured unexpectedly similar levels of bacteria to “shoes on” homes. In fact, the main reason bacteria levels fluctuated in our study was not due to shoes at all; it was cleaning habits
