Contemporary carpet trends for 2015

Published: May 12, 2015

Carpet trends used to focus on establishing neutral backdrop – not any more! Today’s carpet trends incorporate colors, patterns and textures to accent your home decor or become the focal point of a room. Carpet has become one of the easiest ways to personalize a room. Today’s carpet trends take full advantage of new manufacturing techniques to bring a whole new style to your floor. Read on as Indianapolis flooring store, Kermans, highlights some of the most popular carpet trends.

Subtle or bold – it’s all about the patterns

Contemporary carpet uses shades of color to create patterns that bring interesting, edgy designs to your floor. Checkboards, swiss dot, vines, floral, lines… the possibilities are practically endless. Two of our top carpet brands have some great patterned offerings:

  • Karastan’s Metropolitan collection has organic shapes, linear patterns and everything in between.

Interesting & durable: textured carpet

Textured threads add a new level of interest and modern feel to carpets. Where once you had two choices: tufted carpet (cut loop) or Berber (loop) now you have a wide range of interesting textures from which to choose. Textured carpets stand up to wear and tear better than other styles too so this contemporary look is also a durable one. Many textured carpets incorporate different shades of yarn to give subtle variation in your carpet which adds a modern feel to a room.

Textured carpets include twisted yarns, varying heights of velvety pile, combinations of cut threads with looped threads and even different yarn types. The possibilities are numerous and you’re sure to find a beautiful textured carpet that adds just the right accent to your room.

Patterned and textured carpets are both modern and practical additions to any home. Learn more about the carpet types available at Kermans Indianapolis flooring store.
