Choosing Carpets | Going Beyond Beige

Choosing Carpets | Going Beyond Beige

With so many options available for flooring these days, it’s easy to overlook carpet when choosing the right surface for your home. Many clients I talk to think of carpet as beige, bland, and boring. There are lots of boring ways to do carpet, but carpet has also come a long way since the shag of the 1970s. Carpet is also good for energy efficiency; it warms and insulates your rooms and can help cut your heating bill.

One of the biggest trends in carpet right now is a textured look. Texture adds depth and keeps your carpet from just being a dull afterthought. This Design Texture Gold Tweed in Corn Husk is neutral enough to match a wide variety of décor, but it goes way beyond basic beige.

Patterned carpet is another way to keep your floor fresh. This pattern from the Shaw Flooring Caress Collection, called Stylish Art, has an elegant and timeless arabesque pattern. A pattern like this would be perfect for a formal living or dining room.
