Selecting the best carpet for your Indianapolis home

Published: October 10, 2013

Your carpet is the foundation – quite literally – of a room’s design. Whether you are matching it to existing furniture and wall colors, or starting from the ground up – carpet is one of the most important elements of a room’s design. Carpet isn’t something you replace often so you want to make sure the color and style are something you’ll like for years to come. From a practical standpoint you’ll also want to select a style of carpet that will stand up to whatever your lifestyle brings. That’s a lot to consider when you’re picking out carpet for your Indianapolis living room, Fishers family room or Greenwood great room.

Luckily the design experts at Kermans alongside our friends at Karastan have some great tips for you:

1. Consider color. 

Color says a lot about your style. Color also makes an impact in how large or small a room feels. Before you start looking at carpet styles – look at color. Think about the furniture you have and the colors on the walls. Look at different shades to see what colors attract you and use that as your starting point.

2. Check out patterns.

The pattern of a carpet plays a big role in the overall feel of the room. Large or small, subtle or bold – patterns can make a powerful statement in the design of a room.

Be inspired by the colors and patterns in our carpet gallery.

3. Review room use.

Is the area high traffic? Do you have children or pets? Will people be coming onto this carpet directly from an exterior entry? Is noise an issue? Your lifestyle and the use of the room will impact the type of carpet you select and how long it will last.

Start with our free online Carpet Buyer’s Guide. A great resource that outlines what to think about before you buy, types of carpet and installation information.
