CARPET TRENDS- DO THEY MATTER OR NOT?
If you want to decorate a new bedroom or if you’re simply bored of the old one and you want to change its appearance, there are a lot of things you have to think about. Although you may not consider it one of the most relevant, choosing the right carpet is actually quite important for your bedroom’s charm.
Though it seems quite simple at the beginning, there are a lot of things to consider when you choose your bedroom carpet. Some of these could include the dimensions, the materials you want, but also how fashionable a certain carpet is.
Yes, that’s right. It’s extremely important to take a look at the bedroom carpet trends for 2015/2016 before you make any purchase, because you may buy something that isn’t quite the best choice for you.
Of course that the most important thing is choosing a carpet that would suit your bedroom style and decorations, but getting a fashionable one will definitely get you a few extra points when it comes to general impression.
Believe it or not, bedroom carpet trends haven’t changed very much during the last 2 years, so the bedroom carpet trends from 2015 or even 2014 are available even now.
That’s a great news because there are high chances that you already have a carpet bought recently, so in case it matches your bedroom design, there’s no point changing it. However, let’s get back to our story and see which are the bedroom carpet trends for 2015 and 2016.
BEDROOM CARPET TRENDS FOR 2015/2016
Light and neutral colored carpets for small or dark rooms
Light carpets will be always fashionable, thanks to their ability to give your bedroom a more personal look. These types of carpets are perfect for rooms with dark furniture or pavement, because they manage to create a beautiful contrast between these elements.
Also, if your bedroom is not as spacious as you would like, carpets in neutral shades are the best solution to your problem. That’s because, when it comes to a small bedroom, it’s important to keep colors as simple as possible.
Avoiding the excessive furniture is not enough to prevent your bedroom from looking too overcrowded. You also have to take care at the colors you pick. A light or neutral carpet will make your bedroom seem bigger, more spacious.
This thing is available for a dark room too. Either the windows are small or the light can’t enter the room for any other reasons, a delicate color for carpet (like pastel and light shades) will give that feeling of “more light” that you need so much, without having to change the windows’ dimensions or location.
Patterns are definitely back this season, so if you want to follow the trends, a patterned carpet would be just the right thing for your bedroom. Whether it is floral, geometric or even simple, a patterned carpet adds character and complexity to the room, creating a mood for the entire space.
If you want a patterned carpet, it is really important to pay attention to the other elements’ design. For example, if you have a fabric with a strong print, there’s no point choosing another bold print for the carpet, as this will only lead to a so-called “competition” between patterns.
On the contrary, if you have a strong print in the room, you should go for carpet with a simple, hardly noticeable pattern.
Getting back to our story, from what I’ve noticed, this season’s trends are trying to emphasize the matching between carpet patterns and the other furniture pieces. What does this mean? That designers advise us to buy carpets with simple, applied and woven patterns, like leaves, flowers or trellises because these can easily match most furniture elements.
So, before making up your mind and choosing a carpet style, consider a simple patterned one if you want to draw attention to your furniture. On the other hand, if your bedroom’s design is quite simple, a bolder, larger pattern would be just fine.
Thick pile carpets
Deep pile carpets are in fashion again, and what other room is better for them than bedroom? They are perfect for bedroom because they give you that feeling of personal, cosy space.
Unlike short piles which, though easier to maintain, tend to feel a bit harsher, deep pile carpets are extremely soft and seem more luxurious and warm. It’s true that you have to take care at the mess, because it’s not so simple to clean them up, but they’re definitely worth it.
Some of the most popular deep pile carpets are plush velvet carpets, frize carpets and also shag pile carpets. I admit the last one is my favorite. 😀 Even though that’s probably just because I got used to it, I simply could not imagine my bedroom without it. So believe me, this type of carpet is addictive. 😛
However, if your bedroom is a busy room, where people come and go, a thick pile carpet might not be the best choice for you. This type of carpet tends to get dirty easily, and the last thing you would need is to clean up the carpet weekly.
If this is your case, a good solution would be to go for a short pile carpet, which gets dirty much harder and it’s also easier to care for. Though it’s not quite the same feeling when it comes to softness, short piles could go very well with your bedroom, and also get you rid of a lot of useless work.
Remember that neutral colors, patterns and deep piles are the main trends for bedroom carpets this season, so if you find any similar carpet that matches your bedroom design and that you like, I really suggest you to buy it. As long as it fits this criteria, it should be a great choice, that would make your bedroom a cozy, personal space.
Don’t forget that, before choosing a carpet for your bedroom, it’s important to think about what you’d like and what would match the other furniture pieces. Once you do this, you can start checking out the trends in bedroom carpets to see what exactly to look for.
