What Color Carpet Should You Buy


Visitors: 134

Deciding on a new carpet can be a big decision with big consequences. Choose the wrong one and you might end up with a carpet you hate for years or you may end up with a carpet that doesn't last long at all. One of the biggest factors to consider is carpet color. In this article I will give you a few tips on choosing the right color of carpeting.

White Carpets

White carpets are great at brightening up a dark room or making a small room seem larger. You can get away with white carpets if you do not have children or pets. They will show everything and are difficult to maintain in a room that gets a lot of traffic. So if you have a lot of traffic through your room, kids or pets, do not even consider white carpet.

Dark Natural Colors

If you have kids or pets you should choose darker natural colors. Lean towards browns or grays in darker shades. They will hide soil and you will find that you can go longer between vacuuming and carpet cleanings with them. Natural colors will also blend into a variety of different rooms. This means that if you paint your walls a different color in the future the carpet will not clash.

Bright Colors If you really want to liven up a room, go with a bright color. Colors like red or bright blue are best left for modern homes. Be prepared to replace this carpet often since you will be more likely to grow tired of the color in the future.

Hopefully this article has given you some direction to go in. Take your time and make a good decision that you will be able to live with for years to come.
