Technology has transformed laminate and vinyl into looking like wood, while retaining its stain, water, and scratch resistance properties. Carpet as evolved too. Nowadays there are many types of carpets and carpet tiles made from natural materials, high tech fibers in a whole host of colors  and patterns. Carpeting is making a comeback– thanks to the latest manufacturing technologies it is softer, stylish, eco friendly, and stain-resistant. Here is a good look at the latest carpet trends.


Greys


Neutral colors are always an interior design favorite for floor coverings. They are the blank canvas that sets the tone of the space. Neutrals are more than just beige. Greys are the top neutral color for many designers. Greys allow you to decorate with a variety of wood tones and wall and accessory colors. They also work well with any style, whether you prefer modern, traditional, or transitional.  


Flecks and Tonals


If you want to stay the beige course, but want a smidge of color, consider carpet with flecks and tonals. These subtle pops of color in carpet bring visual interest to neutral backgrounds. Flecks of color on neutral carpets adds dimension while it helps mask spots and spills.


Texture


Carpet is a great way to introduce texture to your space. Not only does carpet styles come in various patterns and colors, and even bold patterns, they are available in various textures. A combination of texture and pattern minimizes soil and vacuum marks. It also offers more  distinctive styling and fashion appeal.
