How to choose your carpet colour?


Since carpet is a permanent and expensive choice to make, here are a few tips to help you in your difficult decision. There are 5 simple steps that will assist you in choosing your carpet colour.

Step 1: The heart of your home

You carpet is the heart of your home. It sets the tone for the room you are choosing the carpet for, especially in your living room. Since you spend a lot of your time in the living room as a family, think of a carpet colour that is going to adhere to your family’s vibe. Are you lively in your living room, or is it a room that you all like to use as a place of rest and relaxation?

Step 2: Colour trends

Look into various colour trends that are hot in the home market! Knowing what’s popular and having an idea of exactly what is out there will give you a better idea of what you are looking for. Start Pinning ideas, so that you know the trends that you like and see what is similar in your various colour combos. For brief example, carpet colours for dinning rooms and bedrooms tend to be biscuit coloured carpet and living room tend to have neutral carpet colours.

Step 3: Usage

Choosing a colour has a lot to do with the various elements that the carpet is going to be exposed to. Choose a darker colour if you have young children to hide the inevitable stains and spills. If you have pets, think of what might hide dirt or mud tracks. If none of the above applies to you, think of parties, guests, shoes, etc. At Curtain Call understand you needs and requirements so we offer a wide range of stain-free carpets and man made carpets in Coventry.

Step 4: Long lasting

Since the colour of your carpet is something that you will have around for a long time, choose something that will stand the test of time. If you just began going for the grey trend, choosing a grey carpet may not be ideal. Picking a colour that will last, and not something that you will grow tired of, is definitely your best bet when choosing the right colour carpet for your living room.

Step 5: Family input

If at a loss when choosing your carpet colour, take a family vote! Since you all are going to utilise the carpet, it may be best to find out what your family is thinking would best suit the space. Look at samples together and talk it through. Maybe you’ll find something you like that you didn’t notice before-hand.
