Carpet is one of the most difficult decorating components because of the many decisions that have to be made. Choices include carpet style, fiber type, quality,pattern, and color. The color is frequently the hardest decision. A tiny swatch is not that useful in visualizing what a color will look like in a large space.
Color changes have a dramatic effect. Even when change is desired, the prospect can be scary. Here are some suggestions and tips to help you decide upon a carpet color.
For living spaces, like family rooms, choose a sofa color first. Sofa fabric colors are more limited than paint and carpet. It can be difficult to match a sofa to a carpet you have chosen. Choosing the carpet color next is recommended for a similar reason. Paint colors are virtually unlimited.
The same logic can be used in other rooms. Choose elements with the least number of options first. For bedrooms, the choice of bedding is a smaller investment and easier to change than carpet. Therefore, pick the carpet color first.
Mohawk carpet, carried at Floors Your Way by The Pad Place, has made the choice a little easier. Every year Mohawk Floors picks a carpet color of the year. This year the carpet color is White Hot. The company watches interior design trends, the runways, lighting and accessories for the upcoming year. All of those items point to one look.
The look can be whimsical as well as sophisticated. It can be classic or contemporary. When paired with black, the carpet is stunning. A luxurious statement is made with gray. It provides the perfect balance with other colors. The look needs only your creativity.
If a white carpet is not feasible, neutral colors are suggested. Carpet makes a big impact on a room. Bright colors in a large expanse can overpower the room.Replacing carpet is not cheap. Only those with the right amount of patience and resources can replace carpet every few years.
