In 2018, with the popularity of hardwood floors, carpet is still a mainstay in trends. Take a look at the latest floor trends.

A Solid Shift

A smart alternative to traditional solids, patterned and multi-colored carpets are definitely here to stay for 2018. Emphasizing the eclectic, current carpet trends call for patterns inspired by nature – from organic textures to vintage vines and trellises in sumptuous colors and tones.

Standout Shades

The New Year will bring a rise in warmth to greys and taupes, while browns will take on naturally-derived tones that mimic the likes of untreated wood, leather and brass. The widespread realm of whites and creams will, of course, continue on strong in 2018, offering an ever-popular sense of sophistication to the home.

Sumptuously Soft

While strength and stain-protection have long been the name of the game for carpet, increasing levels of softness is where 2018 is taking us. Strands are softer and silkier than ever, all while offering maximum durability and the most advanced built-in stain protection homeowners have come to expect.

Dual Staining

Why have one hue, when you can have two? Complimentary colors will be pairing this year to create rich, complex visual that add interest and dimension to a space.
