Carpet – Soft, Colorful, and Better than Ever

Hardwood floors have become all the rage lately. From natural stone, to luxury vinyl wood planks, you’d think carpet is yesterday’s news. Not so fast! Exciting innovations dominate todays flooring choices and carpet is no exception. Softer fibers have been the hottest trend for the last couple years, and now manufacturers are able to create beautiful new tone on tone patterns utilizing these incredibly soft yarns. There’s no better feeling than kicking off your shoes at the end of a long day and feeling wonderfully soft carpet beneath your feet.

Basic, solid colored carpet, always a popular style for many homeowners and remodelers, has lost its luster. What hasn’t changed is the popularity of the neutral colors such as beiges, greys, and taupe’s because they are the most versatile. These neutral tones give you design flexibility with paint colors, window treatments, furniture, bedding and pillows.  Although neutral shades continue to dominate, the new tone on tone designs are undoubtedly stylish, without making an over-the-top fashion statement. These patterns are created by having part of the carpet cut, and part looped, for a multidimensional look that appears to have 2 colors. It’s a great way to add visual intrigue to your room without adding a lot of color complexity.
