PURFLEET, England, October 4, 2011 -

With the advent of popular TV shows such as Grand Designs, interior design has fast become a more popular pastime and people are starting to see their home in the same way they see their wardrobes; based on trends. 
Interior design trends will impact every facet of your decorating plans but specifically looking at rug and carpets trends will provide you with a solid foundation for all your design plans. Floors set the look and feel of a room as well as the tone or eventual atmosphere so it’s important carpet trends are looked at to ensure you make the right choice. 
Carpet Trends to Look Out For 
Carpet has always been a popular flooring choice and carpet trends are big this season. Coloured carpets are in demand as well as a greater focus on texture. 
Leading carpet colours this year include reds, greens, greys and shades of blue. Red carpets are associated with beauty and elegance hence their popularity whereas blue is the chosen colour palette for anyone wanting a splash of bold colour in their décor. City dwellers and metropolitan trend followers are opting for shades of grey thanks to its connotations of modern style. 
A trend to look out for is patterned carpets and the use of low profile weaves that add light and air to any room. We are also seeing a lot of focus on choosing the right materials and the right padding as the correct density and feel underfoot makes all the difference. 
Monitoring Rug Trends 
Not every follower of fashion will want to change their floor with the changing seasons and that’s why monitoring key rug trends can help you change the look or feel of your room without breaking the bank. 
Leading the way this year are pile rugs, striped rugs and eco-friendly rugs. Twist pile rugs are providing homes with hardwearing and practical rugs capable of withstanding anything dropped spilled or walked over it whilst shag pile are adding comfort and warmth to rooms up and down the country. 
Striped rugs are ever popular but there is also interest in other patterned rugs including dots, swirls and lattice designs. Floral rugs remain popular with a strong focus on colour while environmentally friendly rugs are proving popular as shoppers opt for natural fibres such as bamboo, sisal or sea grass.
