As this year has progressed, several trends have emerged that have influenced the way people choose carpets for their homes or businesses.
Geometric pattern carpets have been around for a long time, but recently there has been a resurgence in their popularity. Geometric designs make a bold statement in a room if they have contrasting colours. Stripes are also popular, especially stripe patterns that go along the length of a room.
Colour trends are for bold shades, rich woody browns, crisp greens and blue splashes that are anything but neutral colours.
Low pile carpets are preferred by many to long pile ones. Modern low pile carpets tend to be more durable and are easier to vacuum and keep clean. Some interior designers like to place short pile rugs on top of long pile carpets to mix textures.
The trend is for bold colours and patterns, but design choices are always about individual preferences, so any trends are there to be broken. Some people prefer a plain carpet in a pale neutral colour.
For carpets in Chester, homes and businesses choose quality hardwearing varieties that are designed to last many years. Choose colours and patterns that you can live with for a long period. By the time the carpet needs replacing, a once trendy design may not be so fashionable any more.
Carpets trends are good for inspiring carpet choices. Take samples home to see how carpets look in your rooms, and feel free to mix and match different styles if this suits your style of room.
