Although hardwood floors will always be a popular option, carpet is making a comeback! Carpet is an excellent choice for rooms where you need a little more warmth or where you want to make a statement. If you’re looking to revamp your flooring with carpet, here are five major carpet trends in 2021.
In with the new, out with the blue. Warm neutrals, in the brown and tan family, have replaced blue and grey as the new “it” colors in carpet. Don’t worry though, although they’ve been demoted, blues and greys are still in style. Warm neutral carpets are here to stay, so whether you’re planning on going wall-to-wall or opting for an area rug, warm neutrals are the way to go!
In the world of carpet planks--there are endless opportunities! Carpet planks are long planks similar to hardwood or laminate. Most are peel and stick so you can put your creativity to the test with all the varying design options. Carpet planks offer you flexibility in designing your space. Whether you’re interested in geometric designs or opt for more subtle patterns, carpet planks will help you discover your unique style.
Sustainability is becoming a monumental priority, so there’s no surprise eco-friendly materials are trending. In the carpet world, there are a few options to choose from!
Recycled carpet: One of the most sustainable carpet choices is recycled carpet. Recycled carpet is made from 100% recycled materials. It’s also dirt, stain, and spill resistant, making it an excellent choice for homes with pets and children!
Sisal: Sisal carpet is made from agave leaves. It is a biodegradable, durable, low-maintenance option. Sisal’s natural color is a creamy warm beige, the perfect complementary color! It is recommended to use sisal carpet in an office space, as it’s prone to staining and a bit rough to the touch.
Jute: Jute carpet is comprised of Jute plant stalks. It is affordable, wonderfully soft, and a beautiful golden brown. Unfortunately, it’s not the most durable of materials, so placing it in low to medium traffic areas is going to be your best bet!
Can’t decide between wall-to-wall and an area rug? Why not both? The layered look is making its way to the top of the carpet trends list. Carpet on carpet is a great way to get creative and incorporate bold prints into your home without going all out. You can use your rug as an accent for your space or to complement your wall-to-wall carpet. The possibilities are endless!
Bold patterns are the biggest trend this year. A myriad of options makes for a whimsical shopping experience! There are animal prints, geometric designs, floral arrays, and much more! Choosing a bold pattern for a wall-to-wall carpet is a great way to make a room stand out. However, for a more subtle look, try choosing a plaid pattern. Plaid is a fantastic way of dipping your toes into the bold pattern trend. Boldly patterned rugs are an effortless way of jumping headfirst into this trend without the fear of commitment. Placing a bold patterned rug in any space instantly makes it a focal point.
