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.

Lately it seems everyone is talking about discount laminate flooring. What exactly is laminate flooring? It is a manufactured product that is made to simulate the look of its counterpart natural products like wood for example. Today’s technology allows the manufacturing of realistic looking wood floor covering complete with texture and grains. If it’s a rustic wood look you want, it’s in laminate. If it’s a contemporary, warm tone wood look you want, it’s in laminate. If you like the look of exotic wood it’s in laminate. Virtually every type of natural hardwood flooring has a laminate counterpart. Why choose laminate over wood? There are numerous reasons to do so. In this economy cost is an issue for most consumer. Laminate flooring is significantly less costly than its natural counterpart. Along with cost comes maintenance. In fact they usually go hand in hand as most people have to hire a professional to maintain natural flooring on a regular basis. Laminate flooring requires less maintenance. Laminate wood flooring does not need to be varnished or waxed and is naturally stain resistant. Discount laminate flooring is perfect if you have a busy household, have an active lifestyle, have pets and don’t want to work hard to maintain. Laminate flooring has been around for a relatively short period of time in the United States, approximately 25 years. It has been used in Europe extensively for many years because laminate flooring can be installed over existing flooring (in most cases) including the older European buildings.

Hardwood flooring has long been available in America, but only recently has it had such a huge impact on flooring covering sales. Hardwood flooring comes in many sizes and colors, as well as different grades and species. When looking into hardwood floors for your flooring, it is hard to know where to begin. The first thing to do is to choose the look that you want the room to have. Once you have a specific color/look that you want the room to have, your next step will be to pick the type and style of wood.
There are many types of wood, including pre-finished, solid flooring, and more. You will want to speak with a flooring consultant, such as one from Carpet Depot Arizona to help you find which type of wood will work best for your house and your lifestyle. After you have figured out the type, the next step is to settle on a species. There are many wood species to pick from, each with their own unique appearances and colors. They can vary in the amount of striations and grades , so you will want to find out which wood will look best in your house. You can find lots of discount hardwood flooring in stock at Carpet Depot.
After you have picked your wood, you are now ready to get it installed. Having wood flooring installed is a little more of a process than getting carpeting. Hardwood flooring has many quirks, and it needs to be installed by someone who has had experience with a wide variety of hardwood flooring. There is sometimes floor prep required before installing the floor, especially if the floor is uneven. Once your new hardwood floor covering is installed, sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of it.
