Carpet: Back and Better than Ever
Apr 15, 2020
OK, we’ll just say it. Carpet’s popularity has been waning over the years, and for those with kids and pets, hard-surface floors have become the easier option. Until now. It’s 2020—the time to worry about spills and messes is in the past. With its groundbreaking styles and durable technology, carpet’s back and ready to make a splash in your home with these four latest trends.
1. Bright, Bold Colors
A great way to express yourself is through your home, bringing your personality into the pieces inside. And the floor is just another opportunity to showcase your design style—think of it as your fifth wall. This year, make a statement with your carpet. Tell guests who you are, express your creativity, and truly own your space with bright, vibrant carpet colors. Many are pulling inspiration from nature, incorporating spring hues such as blush and magenta. Make it a space you’re eager to spend time in with a bold carpet that completes the masterpiece that is your living room.
2. Playful Patterns
Just like a bold carpet, a patterned one brings an extra element of expression to every room. Patterned carpets are known to boost quality perception, and can add contrast when paired with neutral tones and surfaces. Add a touch of flair to your bedroom, living room, home office, or, well, anywhere. Patterned carpets are up-and-coming and allow you to create a contemporary space boasting its very own personality.
3. Kid-proof, Pet-proof
Styles Stain-resistance, durability, and softness—if only you could have all three. Well, now you can! And it’s one of the many reasons homeowners are starting to welcome carpet back. Polyester carpet styles are great for kids and pets, as they’re highly stain-resistant and budget-friendly. Nylon styles are also popular with families, featuring both soft and durable qualities. Perfect for everything from fruit punch to fluffy friends, today’s carpets can handle it all.
4. Sustainable Fabrics
More than ever before, homeowners are choosing Eco-friendly carpet materials to freshen up their homes. Most are using these sustainable materials as a way to draw natural elements inside, in a classy, elegant manner. It’s good for homeowners to be conscious of the materials they bring into their homes, and Eco-friendly carpet fabrics with minimal dyes and chemicals are the perfect opportunity to do so.
