Carpet ideas – 12 looks to create warmth, texture and style underfoot

1. Create A Textured, Organic Look

In this beautiful barn conversion, the flooring has been covered in the Kashmir Sisal Himalaya carpet from Fibre Flooring. The natural, sisal texture and earthy, brown colorway works in perfect harmony with the history of the property and the traditional architectural features, as well as with the fresh, modern white design.

2. Make A Statement With Colorful Carpet Tiles

Carpet tiles unite the softness and coziness of carpet with the beautiful, intricate designs and patterns of floor tile ideas. Carpet tiles are swatches of carpet that can come in different shapes and sizes and can be neatly fitted together to create a unique, modular design.

3. Create A Calming Sleep Space

In this bedroom, belonging to broadcaster and journalist Louise Roe, the Alternative Flooring Wool Pebble Omaha carpet helps to create a cozy and soft atmosphere in the space.

4. Be Bold With A Striped Design

Decorating with stripes can not only prove timeless in interior design, but it can also work as a clever decorating trick to make spaces in the home feel bigger and wider than they actually are. Using a striped carpet can make a bold design statement as well as help to enhance the feel and size of a space.

5. Choose A Carpet Runner

A great option for hallway carpet ideas, hallway carpet runners can create a zone of comforting texture, and establish a beautiful union of contrasting materials on the floor.

6. Create A Layered Look

Mike Richardson says, 'use carpet as the starting point for your décor and a rug as the finishing touch.'

Rugs are often used on wooden or tiled floors, adding an element of softness and helping the space feel more inviting, however, they also work wonderfully on a carpeted floor, creating an enriched atmosphere of texture, warmth and coziness.

7. Pick A Textured Carpet

Woven from undyed British wool in a cut-and-loop weave, this unique, textured Plato Cloud carpet from the Country Life collection from Brintons, is defined by a calming, natural color palette and a unique hexagonal pattern, creating a distinctive, three-dimensional effect.

Fitting in perfectly with the character of this traditional living room, the textured design can also work well in more contemporary settings, with the innovative use of shape creating an eye-catching design focal point.

8. Embrace A Classic Pattern

Carpet may not be the obvious choice for your boot room ideas, however, if you choose a durable and hardwearing material, as well as an eye-catching pattern, you can transform this transitional space into a room with inviting texture, color and personality.

9. Choose A Vintage Style

Jodie Hatton states, 'mention floral carpet and there can be a tendency to imagine out dated 70’s styles, but florals don’t have to be chintzy, they can also be dark and dramatic or carefully elegant. ‘Floral’ is an incredibly diverse design term, from bright and bold to small and subtle, floral carpet can be an inspired way to introduce pattern into your home.'

10. Work With A Timeless Shade Of Gray

One of the most popular modern neutrals, decorating with gray can work in interiors of all styles, whether you need a calming, timeless backdrop or want to establish a layered, monochrome look. A versatile option for your carpet ideas, a gray carpet can establish an enduring platform for changing styles and decorating schemes over time.

11. Add Carpet To A Staircase

A staircase should be truly celebrated and decorated, rather than left as a simple connecting point from the downstairs to the upstairs in the home.

12. Create A Luxurious Look With Velvet Carpet

Usually featuring a much denser pile than other carpet materials, a velvet carpet can create a thick, plush look that feels wonderfully soft and cozy underfoot. Ideal for a bedroom or living room, or as shown here by Brintons, a hallway.
