Carpet can be a fantastic flooring option for families. If you are having difficulties choosing the color, we are here to help! Here are our top four tips for picking your carpet color.
Tips for Picking Your Carpet Color:
- First Things First.
Before you choose your carpet color, you will need to determine the colors for other areas within the room. Depending on your room, you may choose to start in a different area. In your living room, we recommend choosing your sofa color first whereas, in your bedroom, we recommend choosing your floor first. Ideally, you want to choose the color of the largest item within the room. This is recommended because it is easier and less expensive to change the colors of smaller items. Lastly, choose paint. Paint is always last. We recommend choosing paint last because there is an infinite color selection to match your floors and furnishings.
- Why Neutrals?
Neutral colors are the top-selling color choice for carpet. Homeowners choose neutrals because they are timeless and work well with every other color. Bolder choices may need to be changed within a couple of years due to trend changes. If you do not want to be “boring” by choosing a neutral carpet, you can shake things up with patterns and textures.
- Specks of Color.
Berber flecks are a great way to add color to your space without settling on a color for your entire floor. Berber flecks are found within neutral-tone carpets and bring a pop of color through their “specks.” They can be appealing to parents because they help to hide stains and mishaps.
- Consider Your Lifestyle.
Your lifestyle may be one of the single most important things to consider when choosing your carpet. If you are a parent or a pet owner, you may realize that stains are inevitable and white carpet is out of the question for you. Designers tend to recommend choosing a middle shade carpet instead of dark or light. Dark carpets do help to hide stains, but they can show lint whereas light carpets hide lint, but show stains.
