All About Patterns

In 2017 we’ve seen a lot more patterned carpets in Birmingham homes and across the United States. Dated patterns have been traded in for more modern, simple ones. Popular styles include stripes or geometric shapes such as a chevron pattern, circles, hexagons, and more.

Bold Colors

On the other end of the spectrum, some homeowners are opting for a bold statement when it comes to their carpet. If you’re not using the same carpeting throughout your entire home, playing with a bold color can be a fun way to bring character to a room. Make sure to pair your carpet with more neutral furniture and décor for a modern, sophisticated look.

New Neutrals

While we may be used to seeing beige or brown carpets used as neutrals in the past, 2017 has seen a lot more grays. Gray carpet allows for a neutral backdrop that is modern and will also help to hide any stains or damage that occurs, depending on how dark it is.

Carpet Tiles

One of the top benefits of carpet tiles is if a section is stained or damaged, it can be easily repaired! Just purchase a few extra carpet tiles during installation in case that style happens to get discontinued. Carpet tiles come in many different colors and patterns that allow homeowners to create designs that are unique to their home. You can install solid colors mixed with designs or a varying color scheme that creates its own pattern.
