The New Year is here and Carpetright are already excited as 2012 will be filled with new possibilities, opportunities and new flooring trends to keep an eye on. From living room laminate to bedroom carpet, the styles and looks needed to look at when buying new flooring this year include shaggy rugs and contemporary carpets.
Hot Styles This Season
One of the hottest flooring influences this year will be furniture design as these designs, styles and shapes inspire what we lay on our floor. Eco-Carnival is also a trend to look out for as bright botanical and earthy shades fuse indoors and outdoors to create a beautiful patterned look in the home.
Flooring Styles for Your Living Room
If looking to replace living room carpet it's necessary to choose wisely as it will surely outlive 2012. Choosing a style is all down to the look/feel of the room, personal taste and the function of the room. If patterns and bold colours are not to personal taste then choose something that is plain and neutral. A plain carpet can always be brought to life by a bold shaggy rug.
Living room rugs are available in a wide variety of different designs and colours that can add something really different to your lounge. This option also removes the need for a whole new carpet.
Remember, a new contemporary rug is not just for the living room. A kitchen rug can really change the look and feel of a room by adding a touch of comfort and colour to kitchen floor vinyl, laminate and kitchen tiles. There is no need to worry about slipping either as good non-slip rug grip backing is available from most good carpet shops.
Flooring Styles for Your Hall
What better place to bring the outside in than the hallway? New trends and collections feature some fantastic laminate flooring and each range is hardwearing making them perfect for the hall or entrance. Other options include wood flooring and vinyl which are still going to be popular in 2012 but also look out for slate and terracotta flooring if you want to add some Tuscan style to the home.
Flooring Styles for Your Bedroom
Lots of people feel more confident about adding patterns and experimenting with styles in their bedroom. If this is the case then definitely choose bold flooring options including rugs and bright, bold patterned carpet. If bold stripes is a step too far then watch out for sculptured pattern designs coming back into fashion as they are a great way to add something different to flooring without committing to anything too wild.
