Tips to select patterned carpet and why it may be the right choice for your home.

everything you need to know about patterned carpet

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!

what is patterned 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.

where to use patterned carpet

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.

Patterned Carpet requires a lot of attention to detail to install, so I highly recommend a skilled professional. More about that coming soon!

  1. Very nice!! I love the pattern and it is a very light color which means you can put any decor with it!!

  2. I love a patterned carpet, but our pup has picked ours in several places causing runs. Poor little guy. His teeth or paws snag when he is playing. No more cut and loop piles for us. Hubby has said it is cut only for the replacement and it is impossible to find a pattern in a cut pile. Oh well…I suppose I do love my pup more than carpet, but the designer in me is cringing. Lol! The pattern looks sooooooo good! 

    • Oh no! I had a patterned carpet that did the same, it definitely depends on the weave. I actually tested the sample. Our installer left remnants behind in case of repairs, while a repair is never perfect, a skilled installer should be able to do it. I would also contact the carpet manufacturer to see if there is any warranty.

  3. I’ve seen some patterned carpet that was way too busy for my taste, but I love yours! It’s subtle, but adds a lot of depth. I also like that it’s neutral, so it looks good in all of the rooms. I’ll have to consider it when we replace our basement carpet!

  4. That carpet is GORGEOUS! I love how your room came together with it – simply stunning. I like how the subtle pattern really helped add texture and dimension without being overly complicated!

  5. I love patterned carpet! This looks neat!

  6. It’s beautiful! I love it so much! I’m pinning this to keep for when I build again! Thanks!

  7. We’re thinking about adding a patterned carpet to our new home. I like the cozy, warm feeling that it gives to your room! I’m all about mixing different textures together to give the space depth. 

  8. Julie –

    Great post! Thank you so much for sharing your advice on how to select the perfect flooring for any space. Timing couldn’t be better for this read either since we are looking for options on replacing our kids’ bedroom carpet right now. This addition to your cottage is absolutely stunning and I am inspired to accelerate our project now!
