5 Reasons Why Your Home Needs Traditional Patterned Carpets
The fashion for plain carpets tends to fluctuate, but the desire for traditional patterned carpets has never gone away. Patterned carpets have been around for thousands of years, which is pretty solid proof of their popularity. A plain carpet is simply a floor covering. But a patterned carpet takes interior design to a different and more exciting place.
Here at Clarkes we’re a family-run business that was established in 1968. Since then we’ve been providing our customers with high quality flooring backed up by expert installation. So it’s fair to say we know a thing or two about carpets. Read on to discover some of the benefits of traditional patterned carpets.
Patterns for expression
A carpet with a vibrant pattern can really make a statement, whether your style is traditional or modern. In a contemporary setting where colour is muted, it can really bring a room to life. For a classic interior there are hundreds of patterns to choose from that would perfectly complement your style.
A plain carpet in a white room will look smart and attractive. But if you truly want to express your artistic personality, traditional patterned carpets can be your canvas.
Patterns for colour
Blending and matching colours has always been a feature of interior design. This can be achieved by using large areas of block colour, such as feature walls or ceilings. Or it can be done by matching splashes of colour in smaller specific areas. But we sometimes forget that floors can be a part of this process.
By choosing your carpet according to the shades within the pattern, you can take colour co-ordination to new heights.
Patterns for change
By using specific patterns on your floor, you can change the way a room is perceived. In a small room, a repeated linear pattern can give the impression of a much longer space. Alternatively, a tartan or checked pattern can help to make a room look significantly larger than it is.
Traditional patterned carpets are not just beautiful. They can also affect the way you and your family visualise your living space.
Patterns for style
There’s no doubt that patterned carpets are the perfect choice for traditional style homes. But a range of vibrant contemporary patterns have been available for many years. Even if your style is ultra-modern, there are patterned carpets to suit every taste.
Patterns for practicality
Plain carpets in pale colours in a house with children or pets (or both) can be an issue. But if a carpet is patterned, it can help to disguise the wear and tear of everyday use. Many also believe the appearance of traditional carpets in Persian or classical style actually improves with age. That’s why traditional patterned carpets are a great way to add a sense of history and luxury to your home.
