Go Bright and Lively with Mohawk Carpet


Wood and laminate floors were all the rage for a while, but the St. Louis market finally had enough! The hottest interior design trend now is bright and lively with richly colored carpet and vibrant area rugs. The trick is to focus on a vivid color you love for the floor, go much lighter with walls, and select furniture in the in-between shades.

Most Loved Color Schemes from Mohawk Carpet

At Edwards Carpet & Flooring Centers, we have access all of the hottest color trends for 2019-2020:

  • Brilliant blue carpets are taking homes by storm! Bright indigo is a lively base for your living room, bedrooms, and offices. No longer relegated to little boys’ bedrooms, blue is the most popular non-neutral right now. Dress it up or down to suit your style. This year’s holiday photos will be absolute stunners on a great background of blue! Bright blue hues are great for active families because these colors shout FUN!
  • Blush & berry tonesĀ can’t help but give a feminine allure to any room. They came back in to favor in 2014 as muted, watery colors. Today’s top interior designers are going dark and rich with these purplish-pinks. They make a real sensory statement in a luxurious, rich, soft, deep bedroom carpet.
  • Versatile greens can act almost like a neutral (think olive or army greens) or be more vivid. They look phenomenal with wood furniture, neutrals, AND bright colors.
  • Bright white is a bold choice and not for everyone, but it’s becoming trendy. Modern materials, stain protection, and improvements in carpet shampooing machines make white a viable option. Know you will need to invest time and money in maintenance.

Once you’ve chosen a base color for your floor, you can select texture, patterns, and styles of carpet to build up the room from there. Remember, this color trend looks best with saturated carpet, light walls, and furniture in neutrals or the “in-between” shades.
