Embrace Summer Vibes: Contemporary Rugs for the Season

Embrace Summer Vibes: Contemporary Rugs for the Season

It’s nearly summer – so is your home due for a makeover? Here at Knot Home, one of our favourite ways to embrace the new season is with contemporary carpets that will freshen up any style of decor.

Let’s take a look at how modern rugs can imbue your interior with sunshine in time for the summer months. In this guide, we’ll break down the colours, textures and patterns to seek out for a relaxed, summery aesthetic. 

Lighten Up for Summer

As a general rule, lighter shades work best in the summer months. While dark, rich tones help to create a feeling of warmth in the depths of winter, they can start to feel too heavy once the temperature starts to rise. So swap out your winter carpets for something altogether lighter: white, ivory and cream carpets all look wonderful on wooden floorboards, or experiment with pastel shades of pink, green and blue.

Golden Hour

From soft, sandy beaches to glowing sunsets, nothing captures the spirit of summer like the colour gold. Try an area rug or runner in a shimmering shade of gold or beige – it’s easy to imagine that you’re walking barefoot across the sand on a hot, sunny day.

Coastal Retreat

Some of our favourite carpets for summer celebrate the blues and greens of the deep sea. Try a turquoise carpet to evoke the colour of the ocean, or a striped design like this blue striped carpet to suggest the ripples and waves of the sea. Or look for faded carpets that have the sun-bleached appeal of a well-loved beach retreat.

Natural Textures

It’s not just colours that speak of summer; you might want to swap out your winter carpets for something in a different material. When the weather gets warmer, natural fibres and soft textures come to the fore. Choose a wool rug, or a carpet with wool in the mix, for a luxury feel underfoot. And the soft, shiny texture of our art silk rugs is perfect for the summer months. 

Bold Patterns

Ready to celebrate? Summer is a time to get together with friends and let your hair down – so catch the mood with a modern carpet in a bold design. A geometric carpet will update your living space in time for summer entertaining, or take the party outside with an outdoor carpet that will transform your patio into an extra room for your home.
