When a lot of people think of carpet, they tend to picture boring and beige – but carpet can be sleek and trendy as well! There are so many colors, patterns, and textures to choose from. The color and style of the carpet can personalize a space while also adding comfort and warmth to the room. Carpet can be the focal design or work as a neutral backdrop.

A lot of older houses and apartments tend to have neutral beige carpet, but there are several other options to go with. Gray and taupe colored carpets are great neutral backdrops that won’t easily show stains and dirt. Muted blues and greens are also a great option for someone who wants a bit of color without being too overwhelming.
Patterned carpet can become the focal design in a room while also bringing in color and style. One of the benefits of patterned carpet is that it doesn’t show dirt and vacuum marks as easily. There are many design options, from a neutral geometric pattern to a blue and green floral print.
Love the look of hardwood but don’t like the cold? Area rugs are a great way to have the best of both worlds. Another benefit of area rugs is that they aren’t permanent; the flooring design can be updated very easily with a new rug!
Carpet tiles are great for houses with high amounts of traffic because they are easy to replace. Carpet tiles are also great for creating different patterns and color combos. Mixing and matching different colors or patterns can create a fun look that is unique to your house.
Textured carpet adds some design interest to the floor without being too overwhelming. From textured designs, loops, or ribbed carpet, there are many options to choose from. It also minimizes dirt and vacuum marks like patterned carpet.
Carpets made from natural fibers are more sustainable and look great in any house. Some of the most popular kinds are wool, recyclable nylon, or sisal. These carpets are great for people with allergies or respiratory issues because the fibers don’t hold on to as much dust. While more expensive, carpets made of natural fibers tend to last longer and are more stain resistant.
