6 Trends To Help You Fall In Love With Carpets Again

There's a lot to be said for gleaming hardwood flooring, isn't there? It's beautiful, easy to clean, and lasts for years. Unfortunately, it's also expensive. Between the stains, the pattern, and the time it takes to have redone when it is a problem, it's not quite as simple as advertised.

To add to that, it might not be the best option for a busy family, either. It’s easy to clean, sure, but it heavy traffic areas, it’s also easier to scuff or damage. Carpets have long been seen as the less expensive, and unfortunately, less attractive option.

But for a busy family that isn’t ready to shell out for hardwood, it’s the perfect flooring solution. Take a look at these design trends, and you might find yourself changing your mind about carpeted floors after all!

Safari

Antelope print is a particularly hot pattern for a carpet right now, but animal prints in general are making a comeback. They’re especially lovely when paired with gorgeous natural colors like greens and browns. Choose something striking that matches your personality, and go wild!

Bold Staircases

Even if you love hardwood, you can’t deny the allure of a dramatic, carpeted staircase. But gone are the days of the deep, velvet red carpet look. These days, if you really want to feel glamorous, go with a dramatic, geometric look, preferably in contrasting colors so that it’ll really pop.

Bright Colours

With all the emphasis on safe neutral tones for the walls, it seem like bright floors are making a comeback. Choose a big, bold color paired with a neutral toned room. Bright patterns also work to really bring the emphasis to your gorgeous carpets.

Go With Silk

If we haven’t successfully convinced you to switch to carpet, because you still want that luxe look for you home? Go with silk. Silk carpets are more expensive, but they’re gorgeous, soft, and come in some amazing prints and patterns that are sure to impress.

Wood Grain Pattern

No, this isn’t to replace the real thing. But if you want to add a touch of something organic and soft bathrooms or kitchens, look no further than a wood grain patterned rug. Though technically not a carpet, nice cozy kitchen rugs in a natural pattern and color palette can help bring the warmth back into the center of your home, and adds a bit of the outdoors to a pristine bathroom

Big Patterns For Bold Moves

Choose a big pattern for a larger area. If you want something understated and or neutral, go with a pinstripe or neutral pattern. For big, open space, though, a large carpet design can have the same function as a large area rug, adding unity and a focal point to the room, to pull things together.

Carpet gets a bad reputation. It doesn’t have to feel dingy, or cheap. You can make big, bold and stylish statements in your decor, that won’t break the bank, and will last as your family grows. With these designs to look out for, you’re sure to find something you love in a gorgeous, plush carpet.
