The Carpet Guide: Style

The Carpet Guide: Style

Choose your new flooring based on the style of your home!

Choosing new flooring for your home can be extremely confusing because of the nearly limitless options. There are many different kinds of carpeting for your home from plush to Berber but how do you know what kind of carpet is the right style for you and your family? Now that we have discussed the type of carpets and durability, let’s take a look at the style of carpeting.

The Space

The main point of any flooring is to comfortable and to not be the focal point of the space. When you choose carpeting, you will have almost limitless options of color, style, and types. So before choosing a carpet that is wrong for your home, let’s talk about some stylistic tips. Think about the space itself. If the room is smaller, choose cool hues like pastels and neutrals to make it look larger. Choosing warm hues like browns and rust colors can help create an intimate, warmer feel most homeowners love.

Furnishings

The next thing to look at the other furnishings in the room. If your furnishings have patterns or texture, find a solid-colored carpet to match and pull the room together. While bedrooms have plenty of colors and textures, you should avoid putting loud carpet into the room as it could make your sanctuary feel too loud. But if your room is plain, think about bold colors and patterns to liven it up. Try a patterned carpet in your dining room the brighten up the space and to give it contrast the heavy furniture of your table.

The Feelings

Think about what you want the room to feel like. Do you want it to feel relaxed or vibrant and exciting? Warm earth tones like beige and brown can help give the room a relaxed, quiet mood while bright colors and patterns will give the room energy. If you are planning to sell your home, look for carpets that are neutral and cozy as they will help buyers imagine themselves in the space.

Your home should reflect you and your family’s energy. If you want your home to be calm and meditative, try a solid warm color in the rooms of your home. But if you want a high energy space, add a patterned carpet to the space and your home will be buzzing with energy in no time!
