Laminate Flooring Heading Out Of Fashion

Edinburgh, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 25, 2008 -- Carpet could be on its way back en vogue according to an industry study conducted by which revealed interior designers are moving away from laminate and wooden floorings in search of something more luxurious.

According to the study into the design habits of leading interior designers, carpet is becoming more and more of a feature in fashion boutiques, up market hotels and chic residences, as well as in the offices of creative agencies and media groups - a sign of things to come for the consumer marketplace.

Kenneth Johnson of said that where fashion and commerce lead, residential and consumer buyers follow. "We see it all the time - as soon as interior designers begin to change their habits, there is a knock on effect filtering down to the consumer level. What that means as far as we're concerned is that carpet in particular could be set to make a comeback, most notably with the addition of thick rugs and quality piles in the most desirable of locations."

Whilst carpet has always been a traditional favourite of homeowners, it had fallen out of favour in recent years with the rise of the wooden laminate trend, which according to the findings of this study could be on its way out.
