Does your home need a bit of a shakeup? Maybe you’re tired of the look of your home and want a change, but the idea of papering or painting seems a little obvious? Every now and then it’s good to breathe life into your property with a few interior changes and one of the best ways to do this is to change the flooring. You’ll be shocked at how much of a difference this can make to any room and if done right, it can transform the entire look and feel of your home. If you’re planning on updating your flooring this year there’s one trend you should certainly consider and this is striped carpets.

Why are striped carpets becoming more popular?

Striped carpets are one of this year’s hottest interior trends. This is because they present you with a good way of injecting colour and personality into your home, without going over the top. One of the greatest things about striped carpets is the fact that they can be easily integrated into any home. Irrespective of what style your décor is, you’re bound to find a striped carpet that will perfectly complement it. Additionally, whilst they may be at the height of fashion right now, no one can deny that they’ve already achieved that elusive timeless status, meaning they will never be deemed outdated or unfashionable.

The benefits of striped carpets

Whilst striped carpets are highly fashionable, there are many other benefits to be gained as well. You may have noticed that striped carpets are often used in hallways and on staircases. Interior designers often choose striped carpets when they are trying to correct the dimensions of a room. In addition to this, you can really open up a room if you opt for bold wide stripes and you’re also much better off going for a striped carpet in a children’s bedroom or high footfall area as opposed to a plain one, as the stripes will hide any stains better. Striped carpets paired with plain white walls can give any room a statement look, and you can match your curtains with one of the colours in the carpet to give off a pulled together vibe. Including accent pieces, such as lampshades and vases in the same colours as your carpet, whilst keeping the rest of the room fairly minimalist is a great look too.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to striped carpets. There are so many styles, designs, sizes and colours to choose from. This is a trend that anyone can work in their home, no matter what the style of their property, their own personal taste and, of course, their budget. If you want a floor style that will be just as popular in five years’ time as it is now, then striped carpets are definitely something to consider.
