2016 Carpet Trends

Adding texture to your home can help brighten up any space and keep your house on trend!

When it comes to choose new carpet for your home, there are a lot of trends you should be keeping your eye on for the New Year. Let’s talk about some of the new trends for the new 2016 year!


Most people think of beige as being bland and basic. Often seen as a background color, beige is now taking center stage with numerous textures, patterns, and colors. Berber carpets are now emerging past its 1990s plain texture into something new with patterns. A variation in height and sculpted effects offer a bolder and stylish look. Even traditional Berbers are getting an update with visual interest including more extreme differences in the pile cut and thicker loops textures. This new trend incorporates more textures, patterns, and even flecks of color incorporated in the neutral carpet. These flecks of color can appear against tan, beige, and cream background as well as other neutrals like soft greens, yellows, and shades of blue.


No longer is the standard printed carpet, the New Year’s trends use cut and loop yarns along side high and low loop yarns in order to create new patterns. Some patterns being seen are swirls, lattices, fleur-de-lis, and bows. These choices can add extra texture and interest to a room with coordinated with floral, stripes, and patterned furniture and window treatments.


A major shift in the new products is to layer color and soft textures in a carpet. The combination of texture and pattern is popular because it minimizes soil and vacuum marks. Colors and textures also allow for a distinctive style. Some patterns offer an organic appeal to your home that can brighten up any space.
