Make a statement in your room this year by adding a splash of colour beneath your feet.
We often play it safe with the carpet, opting for neutral shades but bold is beautiful and not only is it in fashion but it helps hide unsightly spillages too.

DARK AND DARING

This year has seen an increase in sales of the darker shades of carpets. These are most commonly deep purples, blues and green carpets. This creates a dramatic feel for a living space and can be really homely in an office or lounge.

Think about a striking berry red carpet to add some fun to the room. These work best in bedrooms, children’s rooms or areas with more neutral wall colours. Or why not use it in a modern living space and let it hide inevitable stains of everyday life.
DAZZLING PATTERNED CARPETS

Children’s bedrooms and landings are the perfect place to experiment with bold patterns. Striped carpets lend themselves particularly well to hallways and stairs as they draw the eye through the space. As these spaces also attract a lot of traffic, the pattern is more forgiving on marks and stains too. Add a little flair to a forgotten space or use the pattern to add a seamless design throughout the house.
