When it’s time to get new carpet in your home, there are a lot of questions to consider. One of the most important options is choosing a carpet color. The color you choose can help set the tone of the room and define the types of furniture and décor you place inside the space. Here are a few tips from Floor Coverings International of Chester County to help you choose the right carpet color for your living room, bedroom or other space.

Light

How much light does the room get? If you are redoing a basement with hardly any natural light, a warmer color can help lighten the room. Try a light tan, warm yellow or soft green. If the room has large east-facing windows, a deep red or brown carpet will contrast well with the bright feel of the space.

Size

Light carpets tend to make a space feel more open, so if you are working on a small bedroom, this can be the best option. It’s also a good idea to stick with a solid tone. Otherwise, things can start to look a bit busy. Alternatively, in a large, open space a dark carpet or a patterned rug can make the room feel more cozy and inviting.

Testing

Once you have narrowed down your options to a few favorites, it’s time to do some testing. Bring home a few samples and place them around the room. Check to see how the color looks at different times during the day. Natural light and artificial light can make a carpet color look very different.
