Carpeting remains a popular choice for bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms because of its ability to bring an aura of warmth and dimension that virtually no other material can match. A carpet also serves to lend a finished look to a room, which is why you see large area rugs used even in rooms with gleaming hardwood floors.
Traditionally, neutral colors have been the most popular color choice when it comes to carpeting, and the trendiness comes in when you have a little fun with a neutral by introducing a pattern or a tone-on-tone effect.
Geometrics are going to be everywhere in 2018, according to designers at House Beautiful, and that applies to everything from wall coverings to window treatments to carpeting. Here’s where you can take a classic gray or other neutral carpet into the New Year. The best part about the trend? The pattern can be as subtle or as bold as you like and can be flush with the rest of the carpet or raised for more texture.
Carpeting with variations in tone is another trend to try in 2018, according to designers at Interiorzine. Again, if you don’t want to commit to color, you can easily achieve the look with neutral carpeting.
Subtle Animal Prints
How can you keep something as intrinsically “loud” as an animal print from looking too bold — or worse — a little tacky? Designers say that the secret is to use a neutral animal print carpet in a neutral monochromatic setting or to keep the pattern itself subtle.
Luckily, carpeting itself never goes out of style, and you can see trends like these as well as more classic options at the showrooms of Flooring Innovations in Palm Springs and Palm Desert, California.
