Lots of Diversity in Carpet Flooring Trends

Carpeting can set the tone for your entire interior design scheme, so you want to make the best possible choice to suit your lifestyle and reflect your own personal tastes. This year’s carpeting choices range from classic solids and bold statement patterns to striking colors and plenty of eco-friendly selections.

Warmer colors in varying neutral shades of taupe and gray are serving as the balance for bolder tones; bolstered by texturing from ribbed to geometric shapes, carpeting trends are incorporating more interest. This is one of the reasons why cut-and-loop carpeting has made a major comeback – the combination of loops with cut pile results in great texturing and opportunities for beautiful color combinations. Patterned carpeting in contrasting or coordinated shades is a perfect way to add movement and interest to a monochromatic room design.

If you have just purchased your dream home, you might be overly excited to move right in. One thing you might want to take care of before move-in is replacing carpeting throughout your home. Here are three reasons new carpeting can give you a fresh start in a new home.

The best carpet for your space

You probably spend at least part of every day on a carpeted floor. You can see and feel its quality, which shapes your experience of the space it occupies. High-quality carpeting is comfortable, beautiful, and long-lasting.

There’s a lot to consider in selecting new carpeting for a home or business. A good place to start is with the purpose and function of the space.
