Modern rugs are one of the most popular rugs altogether. This is not surprising, considering the great variety of styles and designs they are available in and the unlimited ways they can be used in. A modern rug embellishes any room and adds a personal touch to every interior. Shaggy rugs are its long-piled variants and are particularly suitable for the cosy corners of an apartment. In the bedroom, they keep your feet warm in the morning and the evening and instantly create a homely atmosphere when used as living room rugs. In regard to decorating with textile home furnishing, not only the look, but also the functionality of these plays a decisive role. Hardly any bathroom seems fully furnished without bath mats as these ideally have a great look, are non-slip and washable. At benuta you have a great choice in terms of colours and various designs.

Designer Rugs in a Wide Selection
At benuta you will find elegant modern rugs as well as trendy designer rugs in many shapes, colours, materials and from many different brands. When looking at such a great selection, it is quite difficult to decide upon a particular modern rug. In order to make an entirely satisfiable choice, it is not sufficient to only consider recent designs or currently favoured trends. First and foremost, you have to take your home into account or more precisely the space that is to be decorated with a new designer rug. Several factors need to be considered in this regard. On the one hand, the size of the available area is highly relevant: how large is the area that can and should be covered with the modern rug? Then, you should think about how this area is usually used and which specific requirements this imposes for the rug. A rug which is placed in a hallway or entryway needs to be harder-wearing and more resistant to dirt than, for example, lounge rugs or bedroom rugs. In this case, robust sisal rugs made from hard wearing natural fibres can be chosen. Other rooms, on the other hand, have yet other requirements: although modern rugs for kitchens should indeed be robust and variants made from sisal are worthy to be considered for that particular use, people often prefer designer rugs embellished with a themed design and hence complementing the room. In this regard, modern kitchen rugs are quite suitable as they are decorated accordingly and at the same time prove to be very robust and easy-care. A further aspect that needs to be considered when selecting modern rugs is the visual effect they can have on a room. In this respect, far more than the style and the colour of the interior design is decisive. When your room is rather small and dark, it is recommended to select a bright model as bright colours intensify the reflection of light. Darker modern rugs, on the other hand, can add additional warmth and cosiness to spacious rooms. In addition, the shape also plays a decisive role: are you looking for round rugs or for ones with a rectangular, square or longish shape?
Although, all of these aspects are relevant and justified, the most important feature of a perfect rug is that it makes your house feel more like home. This effect can only be brought about with a model that you find personally appealing. Whether you are searching for living room rugs, hallway runners or bathroom mats, our range of products offers a great selection of modern designs in order to deliver this special rug and thereby adding the finishing touches to your home. If you are still unsure about the right size and shape, you can find out about the optimal rug size in our blog post. However, this is not necessarily restricted to the indoor area: for some time, furnishing textiles for outdoor areas have been quite popular. So why should anything speak against decorating your garden or outdoor area with stylish outdoor rugs? These are not only nice to look at, but certainly waterproof, robust and very easy to clean.

Flokati is, strictly speaking, a special Greek furnishing item that has been made in the same way for centuries. Traditionally, flokati are made from raw (sheep) wool and are characterised by a soft surface and a relatively hard texture. Due to their extremely shaggy and extremely cosy appearance and texture, they became very popular in the 1970s. Nowadays, shaggy carpets that are machine-made are also called flokati rugs. Although this is not technically correct, the term is now considered synonymous. As far as the end product is concerned, the difference is often considered irrelevant, as the origin or traditional name is not of primary importance. What is more important is the cosy appearance of shag rugs and the manufacturing process that ensures the product's robustness. These characteristics are also highly valued by benuta - regardless of whether the carpet is called a flokati, shag carpet or shag rug. All our shag rugs are suitable for underfloor heating and have been tested for quality beforehand. So you can confidently choose high-quality wool carpets, but also models made of other materials - you will find many different shag rugs in our extensive range.

A modern carpet gives every room a very special atmosphere and once it's there, it's hard to imagine life without it.
What should I look for when buying a modern rug?
You should choose your modern carpet carefully and calmly so that it can give you pleasure for a long time. In particular, you should pay attention to the right rug size and the colour you prefer. The model should blend elegantly into the room and harmonise with other textiles and furniture. No matter what style of furnishing you are aiming for and prefer, whether country house style, ethnic style or Scandinavian, at benuta you will find the right carpet model in no time at all. Light carpets visually enlarge the room, while dark carpets exude an atmosphere of cosiness, but visually.
Allergy sufferers in particular should pay attention to the material used for the carpet and make sure that they choose an allergy-friendly carpet. Furthermore, you should consider where the carpet will be placed and whether it will be heavily used. Rugs in the entrance area should be particularly robust and hard-wearing, while carpets for the living room should primarily radiate cosiness. If you have pets, flat-woven carpets or short pile carpets made of synthetic fibres are suitable for a variety of reasons. These carpets are easier to clean and are usually more durable. For more information on this topic, we recommend our blog post Carpets for pet owners.
How do I properly care for and clean modern carpets?
Proper care of the carpet is particularly important to ensure that the modern carpet gives you pleasure for a long time. Regular vacuuming prevents dust, dirt and food residues from penetrating the carpet fibres. You should pay particular attention to vacuuming with the grain to prevent streaks. You should always pay attention to the carpet's label and manufacturer's information when cleaning a rug & removing stains. These can differ significantly and require special measures accordingly.
How do flatweaves, short pile carpets, high pile carpets and long pile carpets differ?
The pile of a carpet is not only decisive for the cuddle factor, but also divides it into different categories: The longer the pile, the cosier and softer it is. However, this also makes it more susceptible to dirt and grime and somewhat more difficult to clean. Therefore, pet owners should rather go for a short pile carpet and those who like it cosy and cuddly soft should go for a modern carpet with a longer pile. Flat-woven models are particularly suitable for outdoor use, as they are more robust and weatherproof and at the same time absorb little to no water. We have listed the pile height of a modern carpet to help you decide whether it is high, short or long pile:
High-pile rugs: They have a pile length of between 1.5 and 5 centimetres. Anything longer than 5 cm is classified as long pile or shaggy carpet.
Short pile rugs: A pile height of 1.5 cm or less is called a short pile carpet.
Flat-woven rugs: These carpets have no pile at all and are therefore particularly easy to clean.
How do hand-woven, hand-tufted and machine-made carpets differ?
The most precious and valuable carpets are the classic oriental rugs, especially the Persian and Gabbeh carpets, which are very elaborately knotted or woven by hand. The quality of the colour and material of noble oriental rugs lasts for a very long time and are therefore sometimes unaffordable for the normal customer. The best oriental carpets are regarded as works of art and fetch correspondingly high prices at auctions. In contrast, in hand-tufted carpets, pile yarn made of natural fibres, synthetic fibres or a mixture of fabrics is attached to the backing fabric in tufts using a gas gun. This makes the carpets cheaper and also easier to care for. Finally, there are the machine-made carpets, which, thanks to the latest technology, can have even the most complicated carpet patterns and at the same time are becoming more qualitative and cheaper.
