When it comes to floor covering there are as many trends as there are in fashion. Animal prints come to mind when thinking about trends in clothing. Animal prints are also in fashion when it comes to flooring. Think about tone on tone zebra carpet. Or how about a full zebra look carpet. This blogger had a zebra area rug (made from carpet remnants) fifteen years ago. I passed it down to a family member when it came time for them to go to college. Cheap carpet and area rugs are all about texture and many include tribal design. Nature is also a trend from tropical floral design to tree design to leaf design. Again tone on tone carpet is elegant and everlasting. A full patterned design will be trendy but definitely fun!!!
In keeping with these trends, discount laminate flooring is offered in exotic wood looks as well as natural stone and embossed patterns.
Tile too has its trends including longer tiles and embossed tiles, along with carpet tiles.
Wood flooring along with laminate is seeing a trend in high-gloss sheen.
Discount flooring should be practical and fun. It should never be boring!! Flooring says a lot about a person. It doesn’t have to be expensive to be the “right” flooring for you.

Carpet Depot is one of the largest independent stocking dealers. For discount carpet, laminate, hardwood, tile and vinyl visit Carpet Depot. They are sure to have what you are looking for.

You have given thought to the discount carpet you want in your home and are excited to see it as a floor covering. If you purchased your carpet at a reputable dealer you will have no problems during the installation phase. Your dealer either has trained installers on staff or will recommend an independent installer if they do not provide that service. Once your carpet has been chosen and the areas measured you will be ready to schedule your installation. There are some guidelines you should note and you should check with your dealer or professional installer about any questions you may have prior to installation.
Before the installers arrive you should remove all fragile and breakable contents from the floor covering areas to be carpeted. Discuss with your dealer/professional installer about furniture removal. There is usually an additional charge for removing furniture, especially if it’s heavy. Please note again, professional installers are not responsible for emptying the contents of china closets, drawers and the like. It will help in the long run if you do that ahead of your scheduled installation. You should detach all electronics such as computers, TV’s (if they are to be removed in order to install the carpet), and make sure the wiring is off the floor if possible. All this should be done the day before your scheduled installation. If you have carpet down already, there may be an additional charge for removing the current carpet and carpet padding.There is quite a bit more to discuss for installation so keep on checking back.

Armstrong is celebrating its 100th anniversary as the forerunner of linoleum. They led the US into the linoleum age in 1909!! There is currently resurgence in the floor covering industry of linoleum and it’s no surprise that Armstrong is leading the way. The linoleum of today isn’t what your grandparents had in their house. Why is there a renewed interest in linoleum, the product most boomers don’t use as discount flooring? One can only glean that it has something to do with sustainability.
Linoleum is made today as it was all those years ago with renewable raw materials including: “cork powder, linseed oil, limestone, organic pigments and jute backing”. In fact linoleum can add to your LEED rating, is compliant with California’s low-VOC emissions standards and that is only two “green” certifications- there are more. There are new patterns and colors that Armstrong has come out with for it’s 100th celebration.
Linoleum looks great with other flooring. Cheap carpet and discount hardwood flooring alike look great with linoleum. Keep in mind linoleum has a long life span as well as being green. Happy 100th year anniversary to Armstrong as it celebrates the introduction of linoleum to the U.S and thank you for always being “green”.
