Adding color to your Indianapolis home with carpet
Published: July 2, 2013
Indianapolis homeowners stop by our store and pick carpet as a floor covering for many reasons
- It’s cost effective
- It’s energy saving
- It’s easy to maintain
- It’s warms up a room – literally and figuratively
And the list goes on and on. But have you ever thought about picking carpet as a floor covering to add some color to your interior design?
You don’t have to be an interior designer to add a splash of color with carpet. (In fact, we offer free design assistance with our in-house design consultants
.) You just need to step back and look at your room as a whole.
First, think of an overall color theme. Do you want a warm and cozy feel? Would you rather have a cool and sophisticated aura? Are you looking for a more neutral showcase? Or maybe you want to go big and bold? Once you have a theme for your room, you can start looking at colors in those families.
Warm carpet colors: Warm colors range from pale yellows to deep reds. Translating these colors to carpet, you will be looking for browns or rusts. You might also look for a warm beige (think more brown than creme). Or consider a carpet with flecks of browns, rusts or oranges.
Cool carpet colors: The cool color family includes greys, blues and greens. You’ll also want to consider the intensity of the color for this color scheme because a lighter green and a darker green bring a different feel to a room.
Neutral carpet colors: The most popular carpet choice, neutral colors can be warm or cool. Beiges and tans lean more towards a warm feel while gray plays more of a cool role. Don’t think neutrals are boring, carpet comes in many textures and patterns to add a bit of spice to the most beige of carpets.
Big and bold carpet colors: Bold, bright colors make a big statement in carpet. You could be looking at bright red, deep blue, stark white or vibrant rust. This color theme will definitely need to work hand-in-hand with your paint and furniture.
