Carpeting can add a beautiful touch to a home and personalize a homeowner’s environment. By investing in quality carpet flooring, homeowners can benefit from their attractive appearance for years to come. Although carpet trends are constantly changing, there are some styles that endure over time due to possessing such qualities as resilience, esthetic appeal and versatility. For the best that carpeting has to offer, homeowners should consider the following:
Neutral Colors: There’s a reason why neutral carpet colors are so popular among homeowners at large. Neutral colors complement most any décor, blending in with all manner of furniture, wall art, curtains and room color schemes. Neutral colors such as beige, dusky gray, ivory, taupe and white help create a warm and pleasant home environment, which is one reason why these carpeting shades are so popular. Homeowners who want a little variety can always go with a neutral color that has more texture and specks of color in the design. By mixing specks of color with neutral shade backgrounds, carpet makers increase their product's visual appeal as the design takes on greater dimension. “Speckled” carpet flooring also hides dirt and spills more easily, a plus for homeowners who have an active family or pets. Carpeting in neutral colors will also be more appealing to buyers in the future if a homeowner decides to sell his home later down the line.
Patterns: Patterned carpeting can add life and color to a home, bringing out the best in a room or environment. By choosing patterns and colors that reflect their character and personality, homeowners can create a unique and personal setting. Patterned carpeting can be combined with solid colored curtains and furniture to create a harmonizing effect or contrasted with diverse furniture and curtain colors to make a room stand out. Active families often prefer patterned carpeting as the designs make dirt and stains harder to detect. The attractive appearance of patterned carpeting combined with its resilience and versatility make it a popular choice for homeowners of all ages.
Closed-Loop Designs: Easy maintenance and care has made closed-loop carpeting an industry favorite for years. The tighter weave of closed-loop carpets resists dirt, grime and stains, making them more conducive for areas that receive a lot of traffic. If stains do occur, the carpet’s closed-loop style makes them that much harder to find.
Although carpet selection depends largely on personal taste and preference, knowing what trends to look for will make shopping more productive and worthwhile.
