Gone are the days of simple, muted wall to wall carpets. The world of carpet has come a long way since then. What pile is trending? What colors? What patterns? What designs? Rugs and carpets are becoming a must-have design essential rather than necessity. Homeowners continue to love carpet because of its unmatched comfort. Today’s technology is also different, so carpet is more durable and resistant to fading and staining.
Carpet and Area Rug Patterns
When it comes to popular trends, grey is the new beige. Patterned and speckled carpets are also trending because they do an amazing job at hiding dirt and fur in-between vacuuming. Nylon is a favorite fiber among homeowners compared to wool or polyester because it features low maintenance. To get the most out of your investment, look for nylon carpeting made of a proprietary blend of fibers that resists spills, dirt, and dander.
As timeless as they are, geometric patterns are getting a new and refreshing look. Expect to see bold designs with a lively and colorful pattern as a trendy go-to. Darker rugs with a geometric pattern that are contrasted with a lighter color are the best options, but also gold tones and pastel combinations that continue to gain popularity at a seasonal pace.
Low pile carpets are known to be more durable than deeper pile carpets. With low piles you do not have to worry about unsightly vacuum tracks or marks left behind from furniture. Low pile carpets are also much easier to clean and maintain, so you can spend less time cleaning your bedroom carpet and more time admiring it.
Adding color and texture by way of layering rugs is a great way of bringing your room to life. Bright, patterned, and bold layered rugs are sure to add a bold pop of color in any room while something more subtle will still present the color and warmth you are looking for.
