It feels like only yesterday we were ripping up our carpet flooring with a vengeance and bidding it adieu forever, but you know what they say, the pendulum always swings back. Well, it’s carpet flooring’s turn in the limelight again. Yes, you read that right. Carpet is back.
We’re not talking about your grandma’s carpet, though. Instead, this classic flooring option is new and improved, and ready to conform to various commercial spaces. So, before you dust off your high pile vacuum attachments, keep reading to learn the latest carpet trends and our top picks for commercial products.
2021 Commercial Carpet Trends
Carpet tiles are one of the most sought-after flooring materials for commercial spaces. Due to their compact nature, the transportation process is straightforward, and it takes a fraction of the time to install versus broadloom carpeting. Carpet tiles are typically low pile and tightly weaved, making them an excellent choice for high traffic areas. Another plus? They’re easy to clean and replace. Unlike broadloom and even hardwood floors, one dreaded stain or visible damage doesn’t mean a total replacement. The damaged tile can simply be replaced with little to no hassle.
Top Product Pick: Color Core by Bentley Mills
This low pile favorite is our top pick for carpet tiles because it combines the clean elements of a professional space with the textured warmth of natural flooring. Choose from brick, monolithic, ashlar, herringbone, or parquet layouts and from various patterns to add a personal touch to your commercial space.
Natural Fiber Carpets
One big trend with carpet right now is natural fiber products like jute, sisal, or seagrass. While these products are praised for providing warmth and texture similar to hardwood, they aren’t suitable for commercial spaces. The loose weaves and high absorbency factor makes these products fall apart in high traffic areas and are difficult to clean. However, the same effect of natural fiber carpets can be achieved with synthetic fibers and add some beautiful organic tones to your commercial space.
Top Product Pick: Tweed by J + J Flooring Group
Tweed by J+J Flooring Group offers over fifteen colors to help you achieve the perfect warmth for your space when choosing a natural-looking carpet. The innovative pattern simulates the large loops of jute without the lack of durability. The planks can also be arranged in multiple layouts to achieve the most organic result.
While it may feel like neutral tones are everywhere you look, bold is always in style. That’s why this next trend isn’t so surprising. The best part about carpet, in general, is the versatility it offers. Anyone can find the perfect pattern, no matter their preference. Stripes, polka dots, and plaid are all patterns business owners are leaning towards to add some spice into their commercial space. Even if your overall decor is neutral, adding a bold carpet style can give the area some aesthetically appealing contrast.
Top Product Pick: Visible Light by Mannington Commercial
The vibrancy of this collection is unmatched, and the quality of the product makes it a top pick for flair lovers. This broadloom carpet is part of the Moiré Collection, inspired by artist Gabriel Dawe and his striking art pieces.
