The Hottest Carpet Trends for 2018

Finally, after a few years of flagging popularity and low carpet sales, 2017 was an exciting year for the carpeting world. When the going gets tough, the tough get going; carpeting manufacturers have certainly responded to those bad years by getting going, and every carpet warehouse and carpet store in the country couldn't be happier with what they got going on!

So, Carpet Giant has decided to put together this quick little guide to the hot trends of 2017 that we see going strong through 2018 and beyond. Let's have a look:

1. Vibrant Colors

One of the things that contributed to the brief slump in carpeting's popularity was definitely the trend of homeowners toward more bold and vivid flooring statements. They began to seek out more daring styles in the form of exotic hardwoods, patterned tiles, and mixed color hardwood. Therefore, carpet companies responded in kind by producing new and exciting carpet styles.

Nowadays, many customers are opting for brash colors and striking patterns that are more able to express the personality of individuals looking to make a statement with their flooring. Keep an eye out for striking corals, purples, oranges and strong patterns this year.

2. Plush

For some reason, many homeowners began to move away from plush carpeting, and we can't even begin to understand why. Plush carpeting is the pinnacle of one of the most important factors in carpets desirability, comfort.

Luckily, people are coming back around to the idea that a carpet should be soft and inviting, and this has led to an increased demand for plush. No matter what pattern or style you decide on for your home, you might want to consider trying to find it in plush!

3. Carpet Tiles

Dovetailing nicely with the move toward bolder patterns and colors, tile carpeting has entered a sort of golden age, because it allows for the mixing and matching of colors that can be laid out in stylish custom designs.

Another major draw to this type of carpeting is the growing popularity of the DIY movement. Many people like the idea of having a floor that allows them to take pride in the fact that it was a job done with their own hands. Tiles are the perfect way to open up the possibility of a DIY carpet installation, due to the fact that they require a good deal less know-how to pull off.
