Here is Why You Might Want to Move on From Hardwood Floors
Carpets Can Do Magic in Your Home
Although hardwood and laminate floors are as popular as ever, there is a real carpet comeback happening right now.
Here at Legacy Carpet and Upholstery, we have never asked ourselves, ‘is carpet out of style?’ – because even people who choose hardwood for their flooring still soften things up with a sizeable rug or a section of carpet here and there, showing us that a little under-foot luxury is as much a great option as it ever was.
Why Choose Carpet?
There are loads of reasons why you could pick a flooring option that is soft and warm.
Carpet is the perfect way to go for flooring in rooms like bedrooms, dens, and basements – basically anywhere you want to feel cozy and where a hard floor can feel cold and unwelcoming.
Carpet adds texture and warmth to a room that may need a little interior design inspiration – and, as an added practical bonus, it even acts as a sound buffer, especially if you have high ceilings or are lucky enough to live in a big space.
How to Do Carpet Your Way
If you are still firmly in rug land, wondering, ‘is wall to wall carpet out of style in 2022?’, first of all, your answer is ‘no!’, and second of all, when choosing wall-to-wall carpet in 2022, you have so much choice to do it your way, to suit your taste, and to work for you practically too.
You could indulge in an on-trend 70s-style, deep pile carpet to sink your feet into, and within that look, there are fantastic color and pattern options too, such as animal print or bold oranges and purples, which we think is so much fun – and let’s face it, kind of hides marks pretty nicely too!
Other great styles we love for a more understated look include:
- Natural-colored carpet for calm spaces like the bedroom
- Classic plaid for a homey, log-cabin-chic aesthetic
- Colored, geometric block patterns, which are fantastic for breaking up the room
Our tip would be to try a carpet out in one room and see how you get on!
Once you have selected your style, make sure to choose something that is not too tricky to clean – if you love a natural fiber, then we recommend wool. Otherwise, you cannot go wrong with manmade materials like polyester to keep the stains at bay, especially if you have little feet or paws using them a lot. If you want a synthetic fiber, stick to nylon (it’s a better bang for your buck)
