Current Popular Styles & Brands Of Carpet In Solihull & Birmingham August 2012

If you live in the Solihull or Birmingham area and are thinking of changing your carpet, then take a look at our guide to the most popular current choices of carpet in Solihull and Birmingham.

Striped carpets are currently extremely popular in neighbouring areas such as Shirley, Dickens Heath, Hockley Heath as well as nearer the city in Harborne, Moseley and Edgbaston.  As you may guess, we are still fitting a lot of carpets with browns, creams and whites woven into stripes however many of the suburbs as well as those in city living areas have started going well beyond the beige.

Instead of using the carpet as a blank canvas with colour added with other furnishings and artwork, we are finding many more people opting for bolder colour and interesting textures and layered effects.  Swirls, floral patterns, dots, leaves and trellises are all now available through patterns woven from a combination of high and low loop yarns.

For several years the stronger, bolder colours often reserved for commercial carpets are now available in smaller, narrower carpets which now means home owners in our corner of central england are only really limited by their imagination.  Let one of our experienced carpet fitters know what it is you have in mind and we are confident we can source it for you.  Of course if you have already ordered your carpet we will still be delighted to fit it for you.

Artwork really has moved from the walls to the floors with carpet brands such as Brintons now offering 'hand painted sketches' collection.  Rustic, natural fibres and 'crunchier' textures are also proving popular downstairs, whereas both the totally natural and chemical-free seagrass and warming, cosy deep pile carpets with comfort and warmth being the priority are all proving popular for bedrooms.  Not surprisingly perhaps, hard flooring and vinyl flooring is still proving more popular than moisture-tolerant carpets for bathrooms.

Some of the other brands still proving popular in the region include:
