Stylish monochrome never really goes out of style. Classic and sleek, the worlds of interiors and fashion return to it again and again thanks to its timeless appeal, so it’s no surprise that we’re all such fans of it at Carpetright. From carpets to hard flooring and rugs, you just can’t go wrong with black and white and we think you will be too!
The wow factor
One of the most interesting things about the monochrome trend is how it can be reinvented time and time again. The versatile colour palette works in a whole range of patterns and prints and we’re particularly taken with this statement Greek key effect. Bold, eye-catching and not one for wall flowers, we’d suggest you keep the rest of the room’s décor to a simple minimum to really let the floor do the talking.
With just a hint of a Moroccan pattern, this contemporary print also has a slight retro feel to it. The beautiful patterns create a lovely detail and will make any room a real talking point. Complementing a neutral colour palette perfectly, this statement floor would also work well with more vibrant hues for a dramatic look.
Contemporary and striking are just two words to describe this on-trend vinyl floor. Featuring black, white and grey, this is certainly a bold floor ready to make a statement. A floor this distinctive would work best with a clean and sleek scheme, complemented by modern accessories and crisp, white walls.
The new vintage
A perfect mixture of modern and traditional, this unusual floor is set to be a talking point! Vinyl flooring is especially perfect for bathrooms and we love how the traditional bathroom suite looks against the floor. Monochrome works perfectly with subdued colours and will create a calming and stylish atmosphere.
Adding a rug can transform and update a room instantly. Not only can rugs help with heat and sound insulation, but they are also great for creating ‘zones’ in open plan living spaces and can liven up even the most neutral of décors. A stylish monochrome rug in a statement pattern looks fantastic when used in a room with vibrant yellows and on-trend grey.
