Carpet Trends For The Summer

Are you looking to give your home the wow factor this Summer? If you need inspiration and want an insight into current trends then read on.

Stripes and patterns have become increasingly popular carpet options for stairs and hallways. Ranging from bright eye catching colours to the more subtle calming tones, there is something to suit all colour schemes and tastes. Another popular choice for carpet as an alternative to the more traditional stripe is the zig zag design – available in many ranges and colours it offers another opportunity to make a real statement on your staircase.

For bedrooms, carpet is still the most popular choice. In recent years the grey tones have become the preferred option, replacing the more traditional option of beige. There is so much choice – wool, man-made or a mixture of both – there is something to suit all budgets and needs. Man-made carpets are very popular as they are hard wearing and can keep costs down. The trend for more luxurious loop pile carpets continues to increase – though it is all down to your own personal taste and budget.

For living rooms and kitchen diners, laminate is still a popular choice. Laminate offers a durable cost effective option suitable for modern day living – many coming with a 20 year wear warranty. Whilst the more traditional oak colours are still popular, there are an increasing number of people opting for the white / grey tones which give a more contemporary look. There are many ranges available so there is an option to suit all budgets.

When it comes to bathrooms and ensuites, vinyl is a firm favourite. There is so much choice – whether you are looking for a plain design, tile, wood or concrete effect, there is something for everyone. More recent designs to be introduced include modern patterned vinyls – ranging from bright spotted vinyls to the more subtle traditional designs.

Whatever flooring option you are looking to put in your home, we would always recommend that you place a sample of the flooring in your home before making a final decision. Flooring can often look different when placed in rooms with different light or can appear different when put next to different furniture and colours on the wall.
