A Colourful Conversation about Carpet
Contrasting Colours and Why They Matter
When a pair of contrasting colours are placed side by side, they bring out the best in each other. They are at their peak vibrance and richness of hues. When contrasting colours are mixed, they create a neutral colour like brown or gray. Thus, when you think about colour, especially the colour that will be going on your floors, the contrasting colours that make up neutrals are key, as they can become part of your larger design palette.
The Process of Selecting the Right Carpet
When you begin to think about what colour carpet you might like, we suggest thinking about the larger, more expensive items that will be going into your space, especially if they have only a few colour variations. It can help inform your carpet colour by first considering colours for large-ticket items like an antique desk or a leather couch. Then, you can choose paint for your walls last, as the options for paint are limitless and can be changed easily.
Trends are always changing, and replacing the carpet is much more difficult than repainting. Due to this fact, most individuals go with neutral-coloured carpet—it is less likely to become outdated, and dramatic colours can be overpowering in your space.
Neutral Doesn’t Have to Be Boring
If you are worried about the neutral-coloured carpet being dull, there is room to get creative with different textures and patterns. Berber flecks can give you a multicoloured carpet that still plays within a neutral colour palette. Simple, geometric patterns can also be a fun way to add some spice to your neutral colour palette while still keeping to a timeless look.
A Colourful Lifestyle
When choosing carpet colour, your lifestyle is also something to consider. A white carpet might not be the best option for the playroom—where fingerpaints, glitter, and silly putty are easily within reach—but may be more suitable for the master bedroom. Also, pets are a major factor as they can easily soil and stain your carpeting. Taking these elements into consideration might encourage you to opt for darker-coloured carpets or soil-resistant treatments.
