Choosing Your Carpet Colour

When it comes time to choose a colour for the carpeting in your home, there are always a few key things to keep in mind. It’s easy to change or reupholster furniture to change the colour and give a room a breath of fresh air at some point in the future – changing carpeting isn’t quite so easy. As a result, you’ll want to make sure that you’re choosing your carpet colour based not only on the needs of your home design that you currently have, but also the perceived needs that you think you might need in the future. Thankfully, this is a lot easier than you might think so long as you approach the situation from the right angle, you’ll find the perfect carpet at Fowles Auctions and Sales.

Think of the Bigger Picture

The colour that you select for the carpeting in a room is hugely important for a number of different reasons. For starters, it’s probably the single biggest source of colour in the entire room – perhaps second only to the paint that you choose for the walls. If you pick a colour that is too bright, it may be overpowering to the eye. If you pick a colour that is too dark for what you’re trying to accomplish, it may contrast with every other colourful item in the environment.

As a result, you’re going to want to consider neutral colours very carefully before moving forward. Neutral not only helps to make sure that your carpeting compliments the rest of the room and doesn’t detract from it, but it also gives you a wider range of options when it comes to decorating in the near future.

Consider the Light

Many people don’t realize just what a big impact light can have on colour – particularly carpet colour. When you look at carpet samples in a store, you’re looking at them under very different lighting conditions than the ones in the room that the carpet will eventually go in. As a result, don’t rush to judgment – take those samples home, place them in the room in question and see how they react to both natural and artificial light. The difference between the storefront environment and the lighting in your home can be staggering in some situations.
