Colourful Carpet Designs & Patterns

Why Choose Colourful Carpets: The perfect way to add colour without choosing a permanent option
Bold colours are in for 2019, and carpets are no exception! If you are looking for a fun way to add colour to your living room, dining room, or even bedroom, a patterned or colourful carpet will do the trick. If your furniture is neutral, you can find a carpet in pretty much any colour you like! If not, you can pick out a patterned carpet that has some of the same colours as your furniture. For example, if you have navy blue couches, you may want to find a carpet that has hints of navy blue along with other colours such as oranges, light blues, and beiges. No matter what you choose, the verdict is in – bold, patterned carpets are here to stay – at least for 2019.
Jute carpets are clean, simple, and easy to maintain

Why choose jute carpets: Great for pet owners or those with allergies
If you’re looking to add a natural look to your home, a jute rug is the perfect flooring solution. From Home Guides: “Jute rugs offer inherent natural beauty to any space in which they’re used since they’re made of dried plant fibers, often left in their original tan shade.” Due to their material, jute carpets are easy to keep clean and require little maintenance – perfect if you have pets. Because of its simple and natural look, jute carpets can look great in nearly any room. However, you will want to avoid placing them in bathrooms. They easily absorb water and moisture – so placing them in living spaces is best.

Luxury vinyl floors are still popular as this trend continues to gain traction
Why choose vinyl floors: Get the look of wood without the cost – and they require less maintenance too!
Vinyl continues to gain popularity from 2018 into 2019. In the past, vinyl was considered simply as a cheap flooring solution. Now, homeowners are choosing it not only because it is cost-effective, but also because it is beautiful! Vinyl floors have come a long way in the last few years. You can choose from a wide variety of styles. With high-quality vinyl floors, it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between them and hardwood. You can also find vinyl that mimics tiles, concrete, and a variety of wood styles. Greys and lighter browns are in this season – and are perfect for nearly any room in your house.

Graphic/patterned tiles are a fun way to add flair to your kitchen or bathroom
Why choose graphic tiles: A great way to add your unique style to your home
As we saw with carpeting trends this season, bold and patterned looks are also in for tiles. Perfect for kitchens and bathrooms, geometric patterned tiles will be sure to give your home a classic yet modern feel. If you’re worried about the look being a bit too bold for a large room such as a kitchen, try adding them to your powder room or ensuite bathroom. You’ll still get the look, but in a smaller dose. Not sure how to accessorize with such a unique look? Shop Room Ideas offers simple ways to get the most out of this design:
“Graphic-printed tiles look great with distressed hardwood flooring, and can be paired with satin, polished, and matte finished tiles. Gold and brass accents are also paired with this trend for a unique and classic design touch.”
If you absolutely love this look but aren’t quite sure about making it your flooring – don’t worry, there are other options. Bold, patterned backsplashes are in too. Consider adding a backsplash to your kitchen or bathroom made from your favourite patterned tiles.
Why choose polished concrete: A cost-effective flooring option that adds a modern look to your home
As we continue to see alternatives to hardwood trending this year, polished concrete is becoming more and more popular. If you are striving for an ultra-modern look, polished concrete is a simple way to add a contemporary feel to your living room, kitchen, or even your bedroom. Concrete can come in many different colours, but you will usually find it in variations of whites, greys, and blues. With polished concrete, you often get a marbled look, as seen in the image above. Concrete floors are actually quite affordable. For example, high-quality hardwood floors can cost $8-$14 per square foot, while concrete typically costs $2-$3 per square foot. Polished concrete is perfect for getting that contemporary look without breaking your budget.
