It can often be challenging to keep up with what’s popular in the flooring world. You see something you like that is trending, then a year or so down the road you go to purchase it only to find out that the trend has passed. It can be frustrating.
Carpet is no exception. Carpet trends come and go, so keeping up takes a little research. But don’t worry, your research ends here, as we have compiled a nice list of carpeting trends for 2017! Let’s take a look.
With everyone going green, recycled carpeting is flying off the shelves. With today’s technology, manufacturers are creating more and more carpeting made, at least partially, from recycled material. And these aren’t just plain, ordinary carpets. Recycled carpeting comes in many styles and colors that’s sure to fit any dečor.
Perhaps something you’ve never heard of, but frieze carpet is in right now. So what is frieze carpet? Frieze, also knows as twist, is carpet that is twisted (sometimes up to 7-9 twists per inch) creating a curled appearance. It gives off almost a frizzy appearance, but quite eye appealing and soft on the feet.
It’s pretty difficult to go wrong with your carpet color now days. As long as you consider the other elements in the room and know what visual element you are trying to create, you can’t go wrong. That’s because bold, statement colors like reds, blues and yellows are popular, as well as neutral carpet colors.
Are you trying to create a comfortable, contemporary feeling in your home, or do you have a room that you want to stand out and instantly grab the attention of guests? You can go either way, but you can’t go wrong.
Carpets With Shape Patterns
Many customers are no longer settling for carpet with a singular color and pattern. Instead, they are mixing and matching colors with different geometric designs. Circles, hexagons and other symmetrical designs with different colors are being used in carpet to grab the attention of guests.
As you can see, the carpet world continues to churn out new trends every year, and the list continues to grow. So if you’re thinking about trying something new, don’t be afraid, because chances are it’s already a trend that is happening now.
