Don’t feel like you have to go for the “safe,” pattern or no pattern at all. Your home is a reflection of your personality. Carpet comes in a variety of patterns and colors to help you get a customized look. Bright, bold colors are making a comeback. Multi-colored carpets and ombre are also becoming more popular. Depending on your overall home outline, any patterned carpet can have the feel of different designs over the years by changing out lamps, fixtures, and accents.
As far as patterns, geometric patterns are on the rise again. Octagonal patterns and squares give a modern look and can be ideal for making one room good for more than one use. For example, a children’s playroom can be fun with patterned carpet, and with ample storage and furniture, can easily be transformed into an office in several years when kids are grown.
Carpet tiles that were once common in commercial settings are becoming commonplace for residential homes. These carpets can bring joy and spark creativity when installed in the right rooms. If you’re planning on installing carpet tile pattern in your home, it is recommended to do so in living rooms, dens, offices, and bedrooms. These rooms are generally best for carpet, and allow you the design freedom to change paint, linens, and art quickly and easily. Carpet tiles are adaptable to any personal style preference.
Choosing a Carpet
Whether you’ve fallen in love with the modern farmhouse, bohemian chic, contemporary, or a combination of all three styles, flooring can be a vital part of the design scheme. Keep in mind; choosing carpet is better done first, before all the other pieces of the puzzle like furniture, wall color and curtains come together. When you’re deciding on a carpet, first think about how all of the parts of your room and home work together. Once you’ve got an image in your head of how you want the room to look, start putting it together. You’ll want to take time to think the decision through. When you think you’ve found something you like, take a sample home with you. You will want to see how it looks at all times of the day, whether it brightens or darkens the room, and if it contributes to the overall concept of your home.
