Most Popular Home Carpet Fabrics and Styles for 2020

· | News

Carpet styles and popular fabrics are always changing and evolving as the world’s tastes naturally change. New fabrics have popped up and bright, vibrant patterns have become popular.

Here is what you need to know about the most popular styles and fabrics for 2020.

Types of Fabrics

Before you decide on a style, it’s important to find the fabric that will be the best choice for you and your home. The factors that decide this will be everything from your personal taste to your comfort to the practicality of each style within each room.


Nylon is one of the most popular carpet fabrics because it’s readily available, comes in many price points, and is extremely durable (and much more waterproof) than other kinds of fabrics.


Wool is a popular natural fabric. It’s popular because of exactly that: it’s natural. As a result, it also hides stains easier and works better as an insulator, something nylon is not as good at.

The downsides of wool are that it can get expensive in bulk and it is not stain-resistant which means you must take extra care to preserve it.


SmartStrand is a fabric available through popular carpet brands like Karastan. It’s a synthetic carpet fabric that is the only fabric with built-in stain and soil protection. This innovation in fabrics offers a high-level combination of beauty, comfort, and performance.

Most Popular Carpet Styles

The style of the carpet you choose, obviously, will depend on your tastes and the other decor in the room. These are some of the most common (and most popular) style choices available from top brands around the country like Karastan.

Bright Pattern Carpet Styles

Bright colors and statements in carpeting have become much more prominent as of late with people wanting the carpet to stand out rather than blend in.

In past years, carpeting trends have leaned towards remaining neutral among the decor and atmosphere of a room. But bright colors and bold patterns have overtaken the style choices in 2019 and 2020 as people use carpets similar to how they use accent walls. This adds a touch of additional color and personality to any room.

Karastan provides many examples of popular carpet patterns and textures on its website.

Carpet Squares

Filling your room with multiple carpet squares rather than a larger, one-piece carpet has become a popular option for its price and its durability. If one square goes down or gets stained, it’s easily replaceable without having to replace everything. Style-wise, many people have gotten creative with carpet squares of different colors, patterns, and textures.

The way people use carpets has changed in the last few years. What used to be something designed for blending into the background is now used for creating a vibrant atmosphere in any living space.
