If you want to create interest and texture with your carpeting but don’t want multiple colors, pattern carpeting may be the answer. If you’ve seen patterns embossed on paper or fabric or walls decorated with molding in the same color as the walls themselves, you’ve already seen this idea in action. Pattern carpet can add a sophisticated, designer feel to virtually any room.
What Is Pattern Carpet?
Carpeting is made by attaching loops to a carpet backing. On some carpets, the loops are cut to create a pile. In others, they are left as loops. In pattern carpeting, some of the carpet is strategically left as loops, while the rest is cut to create a unique pattern or geographic designs. Usually, this is done by varying the height of loops at the manufacturing stage. When the loops are cut, only the higher loops are cut while those tufted lower remain loops.
Pattern carpet can be made with virtually any design, including waves, stripes, stars, diamonds and more. While in some cases the textiles can use different colors as well as patterns, in most cases, the carpet is the same color throughout.
Benefits of Pattern Carpet
Pattern carpets add texture and visual interest to your floors, which can add to the stylishness of your space. If your floors are uneven or unusually shaped, the patterns of the carpet can help disguise that to some extent.
This type of carpeting is easy to keep clean and works in almost any room. Since the visual interest is in the pattern and not various colors, it can be easier to match this flooring to different styles of décor. Whether you have a traditional, classical or modern look, patterned carpets can work.
Pattern carpets also offer a sophisticated and designer look. They are not quite plain, but they don’t have the busy feel of a carpet with multiple colors, creating an understated but stylish feel.
You can also use pattern carpets to fool the eye and create specific effects in your room. For example, aligning the stripes or waves of the carpet in particular ways can draw the eye to a stunning view or fireplace. In some cases, you can use carefully selected patterns to make a room look larger.
Since this carpet has different levels, it can hide dirt and footprints effectively, making the pattern carpet look better between vacuuming. This is one reason this flooring is a popular choice for families.
