A carpet is not only a furnishing piece for the floor, but it is also an important décor element that enhances the interior. If you think that the carpet's color and pattern are not important, you are mistaken.
Carpets are back in style today, and, looking through catalogs and attending exhibitions, true connoisseurs of the beautiful art can confidently say that if you put some effort in, you can come up with something truly unique, beautiful, and interesting for your home.
Which carpets are now in trend?
Previously, carpeted floors covered almost the entire apartment, ranging from a small way in the hallway, to a comfortable canvas in the bathroom, to a substantial rectangular rug in the living room. In retrospect, this lack of carpeting seemed a bad decision.
Thanks to the latest manufacturing techniques, carpets have evolved from becoming soft and durable to being even more hypo-allergenic and asthma-friendly, thanks to allergens becoming trapped in and around carpet fibers, particularly tightly woven carpets composed of polyester or nylon.
Many of the upcoming generations are starting to seek original and unusual options as their worldview has changed over the past few years.
We'll name some of the main directions of rugs that are currently in fashion:
With an asymmetric pattern carpet
The carpet is generally chosen in conjunction with the interior of the room and can continue the general theme of the design. As a rule, asymmetric pattern carpets have unusual shapes, zigzags, and images, the meaning of which can only be understood by carefully looking at the canvas.
The presence of scuffs
This effect is achieved through friction. It is important not to overdo it otherwise it will result in a greasy appearance. But artificial antiquity is an entirely new trend. It seems as if generations of the family have walked around the palace. But this is a false impression.
A thousand and one nights, tales of Scheherazade are thought to be the sources of the carpet's origins. Images of buildings, domes, zigzags, all remind one of the Persian carpet's birthplaces - the East. After that, you will want to get acquainted with the traditions of Iran and see the sands of Persia.
If you choose an apartment in a hi-tech décor style, paying attention to its interior will make even more sense. An oriental composition on an oriental floor will not look too conducive to the hi-tech style. Carpets, regardless of their size, can serve as the main focus of the room by simply shifting the color accents on them and putting a twist on the design. This is done by interior designers who offer a variety of bright and fuzzy rugs.
How to choose a trendy carpet?
Here are some tips to help you choose the right carpet if you are still unsure.
Look for area specific carpets –
The first step is to determine the location of the carpet, whether it will be on the floor or the wall.
Do not compromise on the size of the carpet –
The next step is to choose the proper size. To do so, you need an understanding of the room dimensions and the primary objective of the carpet in the room: beauty, comfort, or protection from the cold. Will the carpet sit under furniture or will it stand alone?
Be critical about the shape of the carpet –
Models have round, oval, square, or rectangular shapes. Even the non-standard shapes can be manufactured, including rhombuses, triangles, or trapezoids. Even the floral and other object shapes are plausible to be produced, and Mat Living’s Bespoke service opens up the world of shape carpets.
Length of the carpet –
A short carpet is better suited to people who are concerned that it may accumulate dust. For people who are used to walking barefoot, a longer carpet is better. But remember that a longer carpet is more difficult to maintain.
Designs on the carpet (Look for trendy design) –
Since buyers may have varying degrees of creativity, the carpet design must reflect their wishes and preferences as well as their house's style.
Handmade carpets are much more expensive, but they also look much better in the interior. Machine-made carpets can be found in any size and color.
How to choose the carpets for each room?
If you want to find the right carpet, you should start with the image of the interior of the room, and not forget its purpose. For example, a carpet in pale, pastel colors would be excellent for a living room or bedroom. In the living room, grey carpets look lovely on the floor. This color suits various minimalistic interiors that include various technological elements.
An ideal option for homeowners interested in patterns and effects would be a carpet that is decorated with antique pieces. Such varieties are a great find for beauty lovers, and they allow you to create a unique and personal vision for the interior.
An apartment's carpet usually reflects the preferences of its owners. For a living room, where guests are often invited, an option with a large rug is common. Rugs with a large area are usually soft and comfortable.
Living rooms with a large carpet covering their entire floor can act as a bright accent to any design scheme.
The shape of the bed, the color scheme, and the texture of the carpet should be considered when shopping for a fashionable carpet for the bedroom. A thick model is an excellent choice for coziness and comfort. A thick area rug is pleasant to walk barefoot on.
Carpet in living room
Classic choices are short carpets, which have a high abrasion resistance. Wool living room carpet is popular among those who want to give the interior of their living room a noble look. Sheep wool has a long life but can get dirty easily. Bamboo viscose carpets decorate living rooms the same as woolen ones because of their durability and smoothness, and they are distinguished by their durability.
Carpet in bedroom
For bedrooms, it is common to lay thick carpets because they look comfortable and they are also very good at insulating the rooms from the cold. As for the form, square and rectangular bedroom carpets are traditional, but they look great in bedrooms with round shapes.
Choosing a bedroom area rug that matches your bedding or curtains is the original solution. You should avoid laying colorful carpets in the bedroom. Instead, choose something simple with calm colors. If you want to fill the bedroom with warmth and coziness, you should choose a plain carpet in soft colors. It will not irritate the eyes and will not be too distracting.
Carpet in kitchen / Bathroom
It is recommended to choose a carpet with a rubber base for ceramic tiles to prevent slipping in the kitchen or bathroom. Kitchen and bathroom carpets that are moisture-resistant and easy to clean are recommended. A special compound that repels dirt should be applied to the kitchen carpet.
Types of fashionable carpets in trend –
A buyer may have difficulty choosing the right carpet material, color, and shape. It is important to consider the manufacturing method; a product's durability will be affected by these characteristics, as well as the required care.
Therefore, you should know the existing carpet types before making your purchase to avoid the chances of error.
Carpets made from wool are particularly popular since they're warm, soft, and can withstand wear and pollution well. A wool carpet is dense and thick, therefore it absorbs sound well and repels moisture, as well as is durable. However, woolen carpets are not suitable for allergy sufferers and may accumulate static charges, and they are not suitable to be walked upon under the hot sun.
Cotton carpets trends are commonly used in rooms with high humidity, as they are well-suited to absorbing moisture; however, cotton is inferior in terms of resistance, and moisture makes the carpets wear out even faster. Having the sense of touch, they are softer and easier to clean than wool. On the other hand, you will not find a carpet made of pure cotton, it will likely have wool mixed with it, which will enhance all the qualities of the carpet.
Compared with other raw materials, bamboo carpets offer an original look and texture. The exotic orientation of bamboo carpets is chosen over other plant materials, such as sisal, jute, and seaweed. Wet rooms don't suit viscose carpets, as they are durable but not waterproof.
Viscose or silk carpet
Viscose carpets feel and look like silk. They are luxurious, mainly due to a unique pattern that gives them a shiny and shimmering surface. Silk carpets are embroidered by hand from thin, bright, but durable fabrics. Silk carpets are considered a work of art, and placed on furniture or walls; viscose carpets are analogs, much cheaper than the natural silk alternatives. Silk carpets do not lay on the floor, but instead on furniture or walls.
