Another famous trend of 2020 is sustainable carpets which fulfill all requirements of the environment mentioned above.
- Recycled Carpets: Going green or organic doesn’t mean that you are ripping yourself off of all favorable materials and are left choice less. This rather means that almost all recycled carpets are being made from reusable material especially recycled plastic soda bottles.
- Sisal Carpets: Sisal carpets are another trend for 2020 that is embracedby the majority of homeowners. Being eco friendly they leave a minimum carbon footprint. . They are highly durable and last long in high traffic areas too. For extra protection and stain resistance, it’s better to choose ones with stain or fire retardant coating.
- Jute Carpets
They are also plant based like sisal rugs and are a great indoor décor option. But these coverings require maintenance because they are highly water absorbent and have poor stain resistance.
- Cut and Loop Carpet
This technique combines the best of both worlds, creating patterns that are unique and stylish. Not a good option for carpets though but these can be used as rugs to create statement pieces.
- Frieze Carpet

This technology has conquered the heart and mind of people worldwide with the flexibility and affordability they provide. Gone are the days when carpets were notorious for being bore and bulky and impossible to replace had they been damaged or stained beyond repair. Carpet tiles have changed that scenario now. They come in an array of colors and textures and only your imagination is the limit. With an easy peel and stick option they can be fixed quite easily and are wonderfully practical for families and pets. One tile gets damaged, remove it and get it replaced. Many of these carpet tiles come with waterproof options making them ideal for water prone basements.

They don’t want to be entrapped with store bought ones that don’t seem to exude any personal vibes. Here they embrace the option of handmade carpets that suit their taste and likings. Though it’s on a pricier side but long term investments always pay off.
