Modern Carpets and Flooring Ideas for Your Home
Have you been considering redecorating your home? Now could be the perfect time, and one of the best changes you can make is replacing old flooring. Investing in modern carpets and flooring can do wonders for your home. Whether you’re renovating completely, or just focusing on the floor, modern carpets can complement new furniture, or bring out a new side of an old room. But, there are many modern carpets and flooring options to choose from; and what flooring you choose, is generally in the home to stay. Finding the right choice for your room is all about matching and complementing your existing home style.
Freshen Up Your Interiors with Modern Carpets
For those investing in a modern carpet for their home, neutral colours remain a favourite choice. Neutral carpet colours keep the home feeling light and spacious, whilst complementing almost any furniture. Neutral tones also contribute to a modern and luxurious feeling. On top of this, if you choose to repaint your walls, the carpet can complement a wide variety of colours, and even patterned wallpaper.
Of course, neutral colours may not suit every space. Striped carpet is proving incredibly popular for a variety of reasons. This style is particularly suited for staircases, where the vertical lines create a stylish undulation at each rise of a step.
But, picking modern carpets and flooring comes down to much more than just colour. The texture of a carpet has an important effect on its appearance. A loop pile carpet is a great choice for those after a neutral style. The weave of this carpet resists shading and foot printing, and with its uniform height, is perfect for those after sophisticated, minimalist flooring. But, those looking to make an impact with their interior design style might opt for a patterned carpet.
You might prefer a different texture altogether. Whilst loop pile is flatter, the deep pile of Saxony carpet creates a luxurious effect, ideal for bedrooms and relaxing living spaces. Similarly, soft velvet pile offers comparable comfort and softness. Both of these styles are available in a variety of colours, perfect for matching all kinds of contemporary or antique furnishings.
For some, the shading of Saxony and velvet carpets may be off-putting. Thankfully, a twist pile carpet is a great choice for those who want to be able to choose from a great range of colours, whilst still getting a carpet that is resistant to footprints. Twist pile is perfect for busy areas of the home.
Modern Carpets and Flooring from Clarkes Carpets
Carpets aren’t the only option for modern flooring. Hard flooring can be a practical alternative, but that doesn’t mean sacrificing style. Laminate flooring replicates the appearance of wooden flooring, but is more resilient. A similar effect is achieved with Amtico or Karndean LVT wood-effect flooring, or engineered wood flooring options. Finally, Vinyl flooring offers an almost endless array of styles and effects, with a sleek finish that is easy to keep clean.
