Carpet Selection

Dec 9, 2014

Are you looking for a traditional plush carpet? A contemporary loop?  Maybe the visual impact of a pattern or print?

After establishing your budget and estimating the footage required, it is time to consider carpet color selection. Carpet color was probably the very first thing that came to mind when you began to think about buying carpet. That’s because color can be manipulated to create nearly any mood or effect you wish. Carpet color also can change the feel of a room. In south facing rooms and in warm climates, a room can be made to feel more comfortable by using cooler shades such as blues, purples, greens and teals.

When selecting a carpet color remember to use some common sense. Lighter colors will show more dirt despite the most advanced stain resistant technology. Darker colors hide lots of soil but require more frequent vacuuming to keep lint and crumbs from being noticed. If you have a room that you want to make look bigger then a lighter color is a must.

Whether it’s a pet friendly carpet that you need, one that is safe for children, or one that won’t agitate your allergies, you can find it at Flooring HQ.
