How do I choose a patterned carpet?

Sometimes you just like a pattern. It feels right and you know it will work in your home.  For traditional rooms, select a subtle patterned carpet to add elegance, whereas, for a contemporary and modern room, you can go big and bold to add depth to your happy place. Large geometric patterned carpets are also an option and make the room look bigger, making it perfect for small rooms.

Starting your decor from scratch? Don't worry, you can use our Make Me A Rug tool and try out different styles in different colours. Whatever your choice, a patterned carpet will  perform and bring joy.

Are patterned carpets coming back into fashion?

Patterned carpets have always been around and the reason for that is they look great and are highly practical. Tastes and trends change and so do the patterns for your floors.  Using patterned carpets for stair carpet, is not only a practical option but makes a statement too. We have a range of on-trend  patterned carpets available, choose from dots, skins, tartans and or geometric patterns. Great British designers love a pattern and colour, that's why Alternative have partnered with some of the best; Margo Selby, Ben Pentreath, Ashley Hicks and Divine Savages.

Can I order a patterned carpet sample?

You can order swatches of all our products online and they will be delivered to your door. Alternatively, you can visit one of retail partners who will order a sample for you. 

What types of patterned carpet are available?

Stripes are patterns and fun too - perfect for creating an illusion of a long room. Striped carpets don’t need to be loud however, we also do a collection of quiet tonal ones too. There's something to suit everyone's style.

How do I install a patterned carpet?

Always call the experts. Alternative retail partners have experienced, professional carpet fitters who will visit your home measure and advise on how to use the pattern in the space. As the carpets  are purchased by the width the fitter will be able to calculate the most cost-efficient way of ordering, especially if there are stairs involved.

Most of our patterned carpets can be fitted with traditional methods such as grippers fixed to the perimeter and the inner area filled with a suitable underlay. Alternatively, we do have some carpet installation guides with key tips on how to install a carpet and what to expect.
