Organic, earthy, neutral tones are in this year--but not like the traditional hues like beige. Right now, gray is the new neutral, as are greige, taupe, and various shades of white. At the other end of the spectrum, bold, vivid colors like blue or multi-tones are also in.
Carpet shades alter a room’s atmosphere, so select carefully and wisely. Be mindful that trends change, so be sure the hue you love today will still appeal to you later.
How to choose carpet colors
1.Select decor colors in the proper order; begin with the most limited choice, and end with the one with the widest variety. Sofas are very limited in color choice; in fact, there are usually only a few colors for every style, so buy it first and design around the couch. Next is the carpeting and then finally, wall paint.
2.Be mindful of undertones. You might think you are coordinating for white floor covering, but it can have yellow, peach, or ivory tones; if you don't pay attention, the result can be jarring.
3.Think neutral. Neutrals don't have to be boring (i.e., flecks) in Berber-style rugs, but bold, vivid colors can be overwhelming when used in large amounts. Neutral colors provide a canvas with the opportunity to use textures and bright colors for accessories, such as sofa pillows, area rugs, or wall paint.
Lifestyle & Carpet Color
You might get distracted by all the colors you see in the carpet store, but lifestyle plays a significant role in your choice. For instance, if you install it in a busy room with heavy foot traffic, kids and pets, you most likely won't want a white or very light rug since it shows dirt. Another consideration is if your pet sheds, dark carpets will show white fur and vice versa.
