Not So Fast – Carpet is Coming Back!

With the growing popularity of hard surface flooring including large format natural stone and tile, incredibly versatile and authentic looking luxury vinyl wood planks and tiles and trendy new hardwood flooring options might make one think that carpet is yesterday’s news. Not so fast!

New technological innovation dominates todays flooring choices and carpet is no exception. Softer fibers have been all the rage for the last couple years and now manufacturers have been able to create beautiful new tonal and tone on tone patterns utilizing these incredibly soft yarns.

Basic solid colored carpet – an ever popular style for many homeowners and remodelers has lost its “luster”. Increasingly popular tonal textures featuring two or more shades are the current trend, but neutral colors such as beiges, grays, and taupes are still the most popular color choices for their versatile design flexibility with paint colors, window treatments, furniture, bedding and pillows.

While neutral shades continue to dominate, the new tone on tone designs are undoubtedly stylish without making an over the top fashion statement.
