Carpet decor comeback is finally here! If you are ready to dig your toes into something cushy at home, we’ve got brilliant news. Carpeting is making a comeback, and thanks to the latest manufacturing technologies it is softer and more durable than ever.
While carpet decor in neutral tones is the enduring favorite, the newest styles are available in a broad range of spectacular colors and eye-popping patterns.
Worried about that new carpet smell? These days there are plenty of low-VOC or “eco-friendly” options that will not stink up your home with toxic odors. Additionally, some of our top choices are a cinch to clean. Here is a good look at the latest carpet trends.
Best Neutral Carpet Decor Color
When it comes to carpeting, flint gray is the new beige. Here, a nylon carpet in the shade lends softness and style to a modern farmhouse inspired den by the interior design firm, NK Living.
Compared to other types of carpet decor, such as wool or polyester, nylon is the overwhelming favorite because it is reasonably low-maintenance. Moreover, it also offers the most bang for your bucks look that resists spills, dirt, and dander.
Best Animal Print: Carpet Decor
Animal print carpet decor is back in a big way; however, you can leave those zebra or leopard patterns in the early aughts. Fawn print carpeting, as shown on this staircase spotted on The Zhush, is one of the chicest carpet trends of the year.
Showstopping Patterned Carpet
The expert installers at Bowloom installed this showstopping carpet by Alternative Flooring. The attractive chain link pattern adds a big dose of visual interest to the neutral living room.
Natural and Sustainable Sisal Carpet Decor
The demand for green flooring is growing. If you prefer something made of natural materials, this carpet is for you.
Woven from plant fibers extracted from a succulent called Agave sisalana, this type of carpet is a top eco-friendly pick because it is both sustainable and biodegradable. Options that come coated with a fire-retardant and stain-resistant sealer are an excellent choice for high traffic areas.
Sisal carpet typically has a ropelike texture and, depending on the weave, it can feel a little scratchy. To soften things up, consider topping off with a flokati rug as shown in this bedroom by Zoe Feldman Interior Design.
