Which Colour Should Your Carpets Be?

Choosing the colour for your carpets can be daunting. As a permanent fixture that has a big impact on the appearance of your home, you’ll want to ensure you make the right decision. On top of that, colour selections are deeply personal, so you shouldn’t feel swayed by other people’s opinions. To ensure you make the right decision, we’ve put together a simple checklist. This may help you make a decision if you’re stuck, or help you to refine a selection of choices down to the best one.

Your Interior Style

You may have a theme or style that’s prevalent throughout your entire home’s décor, or you might vary themes throughout each room. Begin your search by deciding which style each room will have. A good base to start on is to choose whether the room is warm, cool or neutral. If you want to be a bit more specific, look at more distinctive styles like bohemian, modern or maximalist – whatever you please!


Now that you’ve decided on a base style or theme, it’s time to get a better idea of what colour or pattern you want. Don’t be afraid to choose something that contrasts with the walls and other furnishings in the room. In fact, contrast is a good thing. Carpets that blend into the rest of your interior can look too matchy and lack character.

Consider Illusions

A lighter carpet will make a room look bigger, and a darker one an make it look smaller. Therefore, in smaller rooms that you’d like to feel more open, you may want to choose a light coloured carpet. That is, unless you want to create a small space with a cosy feel. In this case, you may want to choose a deeper tone to enhance that. You can also use patterns to create illusions. For example, a carpet with long stripes can elongate the look of the room.
