Tired of the modern-sleek look with its sleek white walls and straight lines? Then the charm and character trend will be perfect for you! As one of the top styles for 2022, charm and character give you the chance to return to your roots with tradition and lend a more personalized look to your home design.
While many up-and-coming styles feature modern looks, the charm and character of flooring that feels warm and natural has a way of making its way back into homes over and over again – and this year is no different. With visuals that delight both traditional and mixed design styles, Rustic River’s Monterey Heights hardwood in the color nature trail provides all the charm and warmth of genuine wood while staying trendy with natural graining and light variation between planks. This style makes for the perfect hardwood in bedroom spaces as the hand-scraped white oak is stunning but has little imperfections that lend a comfortable ambiance and make room for natural character.
If you need a waterproof floor but don’t want to give up the look of gorgeous hardwood flooring, check out Charleston Place Herringbone. The Country Road shade is the perfect callback to the original hardwood floors of the past with a sleek-modern herringbone design to add character.
Are you looking to lean more into the comfort of charm and character? Opt for a textured carpet with Knowing Me in Flaxen. Adding dimension of texture to a room while also hiding traffic patterns, this carpet’s cut and loop construction give a beautifully distinctive visual appeal that adds cozy charm to any room.
Another excellent carpet option for this style is Resista 3.0’s Stockyards. With its excellent stain and fade resistance, you can install this carpet in kid and family rooms where things tend to get a bit messier. This loop-cut-loop carpet has a cross-hatched, textured contrast patterning that will give lively character to any space in your home.
Oftentimes, traditional homes that take on the style of charm and character have carpets in the bedroom. However, in recent years, hardwood has seen an uptick in bedroom installation as it’s considered more modern. When shopping for hardwood or carpet in bedroom designs, consider your lifestyle habits. Do you need a scratch-resistant floor that’s protected against your kids and pets? Do you need a quieter floor for your baby’s nursery? Carpet has long been an obvious choice for bedrooms since it’s softer underfoot and makes for a cozy space so you won’t freeze your feet when you get out of bed in the morning.
