According to the home design website Homes and Gardens, “…carpet is making a comeback in a big – and very stylish – way. Looking into carpet trends 2022, it seems we will be expressing our creativity in bold, imaginative and innovative style.” Bright, colorful rugs are once again appealing to homeowners across the country. Many are designing the look of their favorite rooms from the floor up at this moment in time.
Carpet Trends 2022
Trends come and go. What appeals to people right now may seem not nearly as interesting next year and utterly passé by 2025. We’ve blogged about carpet trends before, including the layered rug trend, the carpet runner trend, and the gray carpet trend. All of these trends resulted in arresting home looks even if they are not as popular right now.
In recent years, the colors people were choosing to design around were neutral like gray and beige. Patterned carpets have been more understated and have often been made of natural fibers like jute and sisal. Now bright, colorful rugs, sometimes wildly patterned, are coming back in style and not just in the bedroom, but in common rooms like the living room as well. Some designers compare adding a heavily patterned rug to a room to adding an arresting piece of art. As we know, many rugs are pieces of fabric art and one of a kind.
A brightly colored rug can liven up a practical space too, like a hall or laundry room. No one expects the laundry room to contain a design surprise, so it can be a visual treat for anyone who wanders in or has to stay awhile doing chores. Kitchens, dining rooms, foyers, even bathrooms, can all benefit from a striking design piece on the floor.
“A heavily patterned design is a bold decision, but if you love it, go for it.”
We always recommend that people choose their rugs for function and look. Go with what makes you happy and fits your family’s needs. It’s fun to follow design trends, but most people are not interior designers and don’t want to redecorate their homes on a yearly basis. Trends change all the time too and vary by location. Still, it’s fun to incorporate something different into your decor, and one simple way to do that is to switch out your area rug.
