4 Things To Think About When Choosing a Carpet Colour

Choosing a carpet is a difficult task! There are so many things to think about, from durability to colour. You can read our previous blog on things to think about when choosing a carpet here.

One of the most important things to think about when choosing a carpet is the colour. As a retailer of carpets in Sheffield, we want to help you choose the perfect carpet colour for your situation.

So here are 4 things to think about when choosing a carpet colour…

  1. Usage.
    What is your carpet going to be used for, and what is it going to be exposed to? If you have young children or pets, it is likely that it will be exposed to spillages and mud. In these cases, it is best to opt for a darker colour that can hide stains like this. The same goes for entrance ways too as they get a lot of traffic through them. In areas of the home that are used less, such as spare rooms, any colour goes! As a retailer of carpets in Sheffield, we have carpets available to suit all rooms and usage.
  2. The wall colours and other interior design.
    It is important that the carpet colour you choose matches your room! The floor plays a big part in any room so it is important to make it fit in with your colour scheme. Opting for neutral colours such as beiges, creams and browns is the best option. These fit in with most colour schemes. If you are planning on redecorating at the same time as getting a new carpet, you have more options available to you. If you see a carpet colour that you really like, choose it and then build the rest of the room around this.
  3. Carpet colour trends.
    As with anything, there are certain phases when certain carpet colours are hot! If you love keeping up with the latest trends, this is a good option to look at to inspire your carpet colour. If you are looking for carpets in Sheffield and want to go with one of the latest colour trends, we have a variety of options for you to choose from in our carpet showroom in Sheffield. It’s important to keep in mind though that what is popular today may not be popular in a year or two. Two colours that never go out of trend are neutral colours and biscuit colours – we have loads of carpet options for these colours too!
  4. The size of the room.
    You have two general options when choosing a carpet colour – dark or light. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, and the best option depends on the use and size of your room. Dark coloured carpets can make your room appear smaller compared to if you were to choose a lighter neutral tone. This is good if you want to create a cozy feel to large room. If the room is small however, it can make it feel smaller and more crowded. Light coloured carpets can make the room feel bigger, lighter and brighter. This works for smaller rooms, but can make larger rooms feel too open.

We hope these four things help you choose the perfect carpet colour for your situation. As retailers of carpets in Sheffield, we would love to help you find your perfect carpet colour.
