Are you looking at new carpets for your home? If you’re not sure where to start, then this blog post might help. Here we look at the benefits of a striped carpet in your home. If you want to add a touch of colour to your home, a striped carpet can help you achieve that. It can also enable you to create an entirely new style and colour palate for your home.

Previously, our customers have steered clear of striped carpets as they’re concerned it’s a trend that could go out of fashion soon. However, we are here to say that the opposite is true. If striped carpet is a ‘trend’ then it’s a trend that is definitely here to stay. Striped carpets are visually stunning. However, the benefits of a striped carpet go much further than something that just looks great.

Illusion of space

A carpet with stripes will create the illusion of space. Installing striped carpet in a room will help add length or width to the room, depending on the way the stripes go. This will help to make a room look larger and more spacious. Matching a carpet with stripes with neutral walls will give you maximum visual effect for your home.

We love seeing striped carpets on stairs and landings. It helps turn this space into a feature of your home. It adds a focal point to an area of your home that is often overlooked. A striped carpet will also help your stairs and hallways look more spacious too.

Update your decor with many colour options

While we have spoken about striped carpets not being a fashion trend, they can help you stay on trend with your home décor. Having multiple colours in your carpet will allow you to vary your décor down the line. Our carpets last for many years, and you can keep updating your décor to keep the room looking fresh.

Perhaps the biggest benefit of striped carpets is that they will disguise marks and dirt that will naturally build up over time. This is a benefit of patterned carpets too and one of the main reasons owners of busy family households opt for them. The different colours help detract your eye from the imperfections caused by spills or stains. A striped carpet is also ideal for high-traffic areas for this reason.

Runner or fully fitted?

Here at Hereward Carpets, we offer a binding service. This means you can have a bespoke and made-to-measure stair runner which will really add the wow factor. With our in-house service, we offer a measuring service, templating service and bound edging within a short turnaround. Any carpet can be made into a beautiful runner, but striped carpets really do add something special to your home. Why not also add stair rods for the ultimate country look? Take a look at our binding service for more information.

We can now offer tape-binding too! Our Jaspa Woven tape-binding is not an in-house service, and therefore the cost and lead time are increased. Pop into our showroom to take a look at the tape samples.
