Carpet flooring has benefited from many innovations in terms of style and performance. Needless to say, it’s worth a new look. Here, we’ll explore some of the trends that are set to take carpet flooring by storm in 2020.
Carpet no longer has to be a single color that spreads evenly across a room. Patterns are trending among soft surface flooring. Geometric shapes are especially popular. However, minimalist artisan patterns are also gaining popularity.
Floral patterns are also gaining steam. These unique arrangements offer a touch of nature and unique patterns with an aesthetic of their own. They also compliment other floral arrangements nicely.
Another trend stemming from patterns: carpet that you can feel. Textures add depth to the carpet’s design and patterns. They also hold up better against indentions and vacuum marks, making textured carpet especially useful in high-traffic areas.
So what actually makes these patterns and textures? The carpet’s construction. The weaving of the fibers impact performance, aesthetics and durability – so it’s no wonder that the carpet’s construction is gaining more attention. Low and high loop construction offer more depth and enhance the aesthetics created by patterns and textures.
Carpet doesn’t exactly have a stellar reputation for cleanliness. However, this outlook is actually an outdated one. Modern carpet is easier to clean and maintain than ever. As awareness of this grows, more homeowners are considering flooring that can help improve indoor air quality. Carpet can do this – and more.
Modern carpet is designed to be cleaned with ease, allowing it to work as an air filter for your home. When allergens settle, they become trapped under the carpet’s fibers. When you vacuum, these fibers are designed to release those particles with ease.
Even better, some newer carpet lines are designed to help keep themselves clean. Granted, that’s not to say that they do not need to be vacuumed regularly. However, any carpet line featuring the Microban® antimicrobial technology is designed to create a hostile environment for bacteria, mildew and mold spores. So, it becomes much more difficult for these microbials to spread, especially with regular cleanings. Currently, the only carpet with Microban is our Clean Home Destination carpet. Be sure to look for the Microban logo!
Ultimately, we’re seeing trends that indicate a more informed public. As homeowners realize just how much modern carpet has to offer, they increasingly expect options that are better for their homes and families. And, that’s exactly what we offer!
