Three ways to choose a carpet color

There's just something about the warmth, richness, and softness of a carpet. It not only feels great, especially when stepping out on it first thing in the morning, but it also adds charm and elegance to the home.

Color: The most difficult decision

The possibilities are endless, and that’s exciting...but also overwhelming. This is the hardest part of the buying process for most people.

We can thank technology for all the modern colors. Even the shag, with its 1970s and 1980s iconic green, brown and gold colors, is now available in every hue from purple to black.

How to choose the right one for your home

Here are some basic tips:
  • Explore your lifestyle. A light color may show dirt more easily. On the other hand, if you have a pet with a lot of white fur, dark colors will show that, as well as dust, more easily.
  • Think about order. If you’re furnishing from scratch, choose the sofa color first. The reason for that is because those colors tend to be very limited. If you choose the carpet before the sofa you may not find a good color match.

After the sofa comes the rug, then paint comes last.

If the furnishings are already in, be sure to choose a color that will coordinate well.

  • Explore neutrals. Neutrals are always big sellers because a bold color in a large area can be overwhelming. Gray is as popular for carpet as it is for wood floors. You can always add pops of brightness with some creative layering with area rugs or other accessories.
  • Think about the room. If it’s sunny and light, you can go with a darker shade and vice versa. If the room is small, lighter will also make it look bigger, while a darker will make it feel cozier.
