We are so excited to tell you about waterproof carpet.
I don’t know about you but those are two terms I never thought I’d see together. Of course, there has been a pretty big movement in waterproof outdoor carpet over the last decade, fully waterproof indoor broadloom carpet has been unheard of.
Shaw is leading the way with their incredible new LifeGuard technology that makes these new carpets 100% waterproof. That means you can now use carpet in any room in the house.
Want to get out of the shower and feel the soft, warm, squishy carpet under your feet rather than hard, cold tile? Go for it! These waterproof carpets won’t soak up the water and stain or get moldy (yuck!); instead, you can easily clean up any liquids in seconds without them soaking in for the long haul.
I know, it sounds too good to be true. But check this out!
Although Shaw is leading the pack for the time being, my hunch is that other manufacturers will jump on board and, within the next decade, you’ll see waterproof carpets all over the place.
Will the waterproof carpet trend last in 2020 and beyond?
Yes. If you ask me, this is the best carpet trend for 2019.
But it will be a slow surge.
The thing is, this technology is so new that the floors still come with a bit of a price tag (although, it’s nothing compared to solid hardwood). As technologies advance and more manufacturers jump on board, pricing will get more competitive and then waterproof carpet will totally take off.
For now, I say, if you can afford it, jump on board!
