Most Popular Carpet Trends for 2021
Carpets can instantly boost the aesthetic value of your home while making it look warm and cosy. Here are the top trends for carpets in 2021 that can be the perfect fit for your living space.
Keeping in line with the home design trends for 2021, eco-chic carpets are going to be all the rage this year.
As the name suggests, eco-chic style revolves around maintaining an eco-friendly environment while incorporating comfort and luxury into the décor. With sustainability and wellness being two of the biggest trends of the year, this style of carpets adds a feeling of warmth and elegance to your home. These carpets are usually made from natural, renewable fibres such as organic cotton, organic wool, sisal, jute, seagrass and bamboo among others.
Eco-chic carpets are perfect for low-traffic areas in your home, according to interior design experts. However, depending on your preference, you can opt for plush, short loop or deep pile carpet flooring in 2021.
Best Suited For: Bedrooms and drawing room
Considered one of the most popular design trends of the year, maximalism is all about incorporating vibrant colour palette, striking patterns, and eclectic textures into your home décor.
Interestingly, maximalism is expected to be one of the top flooring trends for carpets in 2021. If you showcase your personality and add a bit of flair to your living space, consider opting for carpets in cheerful hues with big, bold patterns. Apart from giving your décor a more traditional touch, patterned carpets can go with almost any colour palette and furniture style. Of course, you must not go overboard with your choice of wall art and decorative pieces to make sure your home design looks cohesive and well-balanced.
Best suited for: Living room and hallway.
Another trend you should be expecting to see in 2021 is jewel-toned carpets. Though this style ties in with the maximalist trend mentioned above, these statement-making carpets are usually simple and pattern-less, adding a touch of decadence and splash of colour to your home décor.
Selecting jewel-toned carpets in shades such as emerald green, deep purple and sapphire blue can make your living space look brighter and luxe. They will also go well with Ultimate Grey and Illuminating, which have been chosen as the Colours of the Year by US-based global colour authority Pantone Colour Institute.
If you are someone who likes to keep up with the latest home design trends, you will probably see a lot of designer carpets in jewel tones this year.
Best suited for: Bedroom, drawing room, and living room.
When it comes to carpet trends for 2021, geometric designs are yet another frontrunner. As per the experts, herringbone (a v-shaped weaving pattern) and dotted carpet patterns can be superb additions to your home this year. You can choose new carpet designs featuring different geometric shapes in varying sizes, textures, materials and colours to bring some depth to your home design.
It is also recommended to experiment with different designs to find the best floor carpet for each room. For example, a pastel-coloured dotted carpet in a plush or twist pile texture can look great in the children’s room while a neutral-toned carpet with larger geometric shapes can be the perfect fit for master bedrooms.
Best suited for: Children’s room, bedrooms, drawing room and living room.
