Modern living room carpet ideas

A central hub of any home, it’s vital that your lounge is comfortable and attractive. This means you need to consider everything from the furniture layout to the flooring.

Living room carpet has been a popular option for many years and while some homes choose to replace this traditional choice with laminate, modern carpets still have plenty to offer.

Changing your carpet could be the perfect way to revamp your home without costing a fortune and we offer a wide range of affordable carpets which are both durable and stylish to help you find the perfect design.

Here are some of our favourite modern living room carpet ideas that are sure to transform your living space.

Warm it up

Believe it or not, this season’s catwalk trends have extended to carpets. Warm, earthy colours with a classic feel are must-haves and you can add splashes of colour with your choice of rugs, cushions and curtains.

Berry nice

Autumnal, berry shades are another major trend. A deep plum or rust-coloured carpet can be off-set by a rich palette of browns and greys but these colours don’t just look good, they’re practical options that withstand wear and tear too!

Silver interiors

If you’re looking for something a bit more simplistic, then the trend for silver and greys could be for you. Classic but with a modern twist, carpets and rugs can be matched with pale furniture to create a tranquil living space with a clear Nordic influence.
