Choosing the right carpet colors for your home is a big decision, one you will be living with for years. Because carpeting is one of the more costly expenses in decorating your home, you'll want to choose a rug color that works with your current or planned color scheme. Trends do change, even in the popular colors for floor coverings, but they run 1-2 years behind those of the rest of the fashion industry. This means that the most popular shades in the ladies' clothing department will be showing up on floors in a couple of years.
What are considered outdated, at the moment, are the cool gold and green shades. Silvers, mauves and grays are also less favored. The current trends are towards the much warmer colors. Golds and greens are still around, but they have been warmed up considerably. Earthy, environmental colors have become increasingly popular as well. Light blues, neutral stone hues, rosy quartz, khaki and suede shades are also very much in demand. Beige, the traditional stand-by, is considered too dull and too safe by many designers. However, no other color has as much utilitarian value and flexibility as beige, so it will continue to be a popular choice, regardless of changing color trends.
When choosing the right carpet color for your room, there are several factors to consider. Fortunately, rugs come in almost as many colors as price ranges today. It is no longer difficult to find the color you want at a price you can afford. Always remember that your carpet choice will become the foundation of your fashion decor for each room you design.
The following tips may help you choose the right carpet for the rooms in your home:
