Carpet remains one of the most popular flooring choices for homeowners in Southlake. While neutral colors are mainstays of carpeting, we want to make sure that you stay up to date on the latest trends. Our experts at Floor Coverings International Southlake think these four big trends for carpeting in 2017 could become the new normal.
Although neutral tones are the usual carpet choice, bolder carpet colors are an increasingly attractive option for homeowners in 2017. Eye-catching colors will turn your carpet into one of the centerpieces of any room. We particularly recommend bold carpet color in places like rec rooms, kids bedrooms, and your home office. If you’re worried about trends suddenly changing but want a bold color, we recommend using carpet tiles so your floor can easily be switched out.
Textured & Patterned Carpet
Patterned carpets come in different types, from carpet tiles to geometric styles to simpler mixed-tone frieze carpet. Patterned carpets work wonderfully in areas like entryways, hallways, and even the living room. Natural and minimalist textured carpets like sisal and jute add a great contrast to indoor spaces. Varieties like sisal and jute are more eco-friendly and also help maintain good air quality inyour Southlake home.
If you’re looking to add carpet to your home but don’t want to give up your hardwood or stone floor, consider adding an area rug or two to your space. Area rugs can add the bold color or pattern we’ve talked about before, but in a smaller quantity without the hassle of installation. Opting for a large area rug in places like the living room or dining room will make it a focal point of your space.
Really Soft Carpet
Feeling comfortable at home is really important for homeowners, and many are opting for soft carpet to get this feeling. Areas where softness is important include the bedroom and living room since they are the places where we tend to relax. Plush and frieze carpets are much softer carpet options for homeowners, with plush being considered the softest choice. Both provide a nice amount of cushioning and keep your home warm. One consideration with softer carpet is that it tends to get crushed when heavy furniture is on it for a long time. You can avoid this by rearranging your furniture every once in a while.
