Hot Home Carpet Trends for 2018

Constant advancements in technology, manufacturing, and design are transforming carpet textures, patterns, colors, and more! No longer a simple neutral palette, carpeting is now an integral part of a room’s design—possibly even its focal point. Here are some hot home carpet trends you’ll be seeing in 2018.

Color and Texture

Traditional neutral colors like beige are steadily being replaced by every shade of gray which gives a room a chic, trendy, and contemporary look. The rising popularity of this carpet color is no surprise as gray has become a popular trend for all aspects of a home and it provides a neutral backdrop for a room’s decor. Cool blue is another hot color that appeals to multiple demographics. Cool blues won’t overwhelm a space and they work well with trending gray interior designs. Neutral carpets sprinkled with color and/or a combination of texture and pattern will offer distinctive styling while also helping hide spots, spills, and vacuum marks. Textures can range from traditional lines and shapes to chevron and more random patterns.

Layout and Pattern

Solid, traditional carpets will still reign supreme in 2018, but contemporary, eye-catching designs are becoming increasingly popular, especially among young homeowners. Look for modern, patterned carpets to feature hexagon shapes and Moroccan trellises, as well as flowers, leaves, and other organic shapes that coordinate well with a room’s furnishings.

Waterproof and Recycled Carpet

Not just for outdoor carpet anymore, incredible new technology means waterproof indoor broadloom carpet is here! These waterproof carpets allow you to easily clean up any liquids without fear of saturation, staining, or mold. Places where carpet was previously frowned upon (basements, bathrooms, kitchens, etc.) can now have plush and inviting carpet underfoot. Homeowners concerned with environmental responsibility and how their purchases impact society, are looking for “green” home improvement materials. Modern recycled carpets can be made from recycled plastic bottles which are regenerated into an eco-friendly, stain resistant, strong nylon fiber, that can be woven in to a variety of pile designs. Recycled carpets are durable and long-lasting carpet, meaning they need replaced less often, which contributes to a cleaner planet.
