When designing the lake cottage, we wanted to create a modern, airy retreat that would feel warm and comfortable. I love wood floors, but there’s just something cozy about the softness of carpet on foot that appealed to me for this home.

Carpet also eliminates the need for rugs, which is an added layer to clean in a space that we want to spend all of our time relaxing in. So, we turned to patterned carpet!

Why You’ll Love this Carpet

Patterned Carpet uses a variation of color or yarn height {a high and low loop} to achieve a pattern. The added layer of pattern and texture add both warmth and interest to a room.

One of the greatest perks of patterned carpet is that it can used alone or layered with a rug like we did in the entryway for added protection in a high traffic area.

We used patterned carpet in our living room, bedrooms, halls, basement and stairs.  When properly installed, patterned carpet looks beautiful on steps and is the perfect alternative to wood treads with a runner.

Why I Selected Patterned Carpet:

  • design adds interest to a room
  • texture adds warmth to a room
  • patterns highlight a light color while disguising stains from a low color
  • can be used for a traditional or modern aesthetic
  • disguises wear and tear
  • minimal footprints and vacuum marks

How to Choose Patterned Carpet:

Choose a design that speaks to you. Order samples so that you can see, touch, and feel it. Place it up against your trim so you can see how it will fit with your existing wall color.

Test it in several areas including a dark hall and near a window to see which color is right for you and see how it changes during various lighting situations throughout day and evening.
