Carpet Trends to Watch in 2018
A new year so often comes with new goals in all areas of life. If one of your 2018 goals is to spruce up your home and make it cozier at the same time, you may want to consider some of these emerging carpet trends when you put pen to paper and start planning for those ever-important home updates.
Bold colors are making a big leap forward this year, but are best reserved for accents and rugs rather than entire rooms. Whether this is a bright splash of color you love but don’t want to commit a whole room to or a wild pattern that perfectly offsets the decor in your favorite room, look for people to color outside the lines in a big way with their carpet choices.
Texture & Patterns
Along with bold accents in bright colors, texture and patterns are making their way onto the scene now more than ever. Unlike the boldness of the first trend we highlighted, textures and patterns can be incorporated in much more subtle ways, allowing for a little decor adventure without having to get too far out there. If you’re still in love with a neutral palette but are looking for ways to amp it up, choosing a carpet with more texture variation or a subtle pattern may be the perfect fit for your upgrading needs.
Advanced Carpet Tech
Carpet has come a long way in recent years, and there are a lot of technical components that are worth paying attention to if you’re due for an upgrade. Nowadays you can find carpet that’s waterproof, stainproof, eco-friendly, you name it. No matter how wild things get at your place, there’s probably a carpet with the right tech to handle it. Make sure to ask for these kinds of features when you’re shopping if you know that’s something you’re interested in learning more about. A knowledgeable carpet salesperson will be able to share with you the pros and cons of each and help you find the right fit for your home.
There’s a lot on the horizon for carpet in 2018 and we’re excited to see how the year shapes up in the industry, but at the end of the day, it’s important for you to choose the carpet that feels best, works best in your space, and has all the qualities you need to make it an efficient, comfortable, and easy-to-maintain part of your home and life.
