As natural wood looks continue to dominate every home renovation show, one might think carpet is outdated and old-fashioned. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Here are the best modern carpet styles for 2018 to help you stay contemporary and comfortable.
Even if it’s in a small area or room, a vivid carpet color can help make a bold statement in your home. Bold-colored carpet not only helps brighten up the room, but it can also be a great way to add a touch of your personality to your home. If you’re unsure about bold carpet throughout the whole house, start small with fuchsia in the bedroom or emerald in the hallway and go from there.
Frieze carpet, also known as Twist carpet, is known for its shaggy look, making it both casual and comfortable. This modern carpet can make a room look distinguished without being overly formal. Not only does frieze carpet add to the beautiful aesthetic of your home, but its crimped construction makes it easier to conceal dirt and crumbs. Casual and easy to clean carpet might be your best bet for a contemporary look.
Bold carpet colors may be an exciting new trend, but neutral carpet colors remain equally popular as we approach 2018. The gray momentum is still in full effect, but there is a rising popularity of taupe, beige, and greige (a cross between gray and beige). These colors coordinate with all different types of décor, helping you customize your home exactly how you want it to look. Using neutral tones helps make a smoother transition between different flooring types within your home. Can’t decide which neutral color is perfect for your floor? Another trend with neutrals is multi-colored carpets, such as Empire’s On The Scene and In The Know. This can help conceal dirt better than one solid color.
Pattern carpet gives your floor a subtle yet distinctive look. A modern carpet such as Empire’s Tailor Made, with its trending “tree bark” pattern, can help you add spunk to your carpet without being over the top. Geometric patterns are also on the rise. It’s amazing how simple and discreet shapes can make a perfect complement to contemporary decor.
You don’t have to limit yourself to hard surfaces to be contemporary. Whether you brighten the room with a bold color, add a twist to classic neutrals with greige, or make a stylish statement with pattern or frieze, 2018’s carpet trends are a great way to modernize your home.
