How to choose the right carpet color

Decorating your own home is a task that requires a little care and attention and, with so many components at stake, the fear of making mistakes hits the roof.

Should I or not put carpet? What material? The small or long? Does it need to match the rest of the environment?

There are many questions to be answered. Today we will dedicate this space to help you decide which carpet color to choose.

Decide a priority order

Ideally, if you are going to decorate your home from scratch, you should prioritize the color of objects. This means that the order must start on objects with more limited color choices.

In a living room, for example, start with the color of the couch. Then go to the carpet and finally the wall paint.

In a room, start with the carpet and then the bed and other furniture.

Decoration objects, as they can already be bought in the color of the room, can be the last pieces to be added.

Choose the color according to your purpose.
Rugs can transform any environment and their colors are 90% responsible for it.

If you want the environment to look bigger, opt for lighter colors. And if you have rooms that you want to look more cozy and comfortable, darker shades can create that effect.

If you have children or like to entertain your guests often, plain and dark colored rugs are the best option for hiding stains and dirt.

Fear of making a mistake? Go to neutrals

There is a reason why neutral colors are the best selling. They match any type of decoration and do not get sick.

Current trends favor earth tone neutrals, including warm grays and the ever popular beige. But neutrals don't have to be boring. To ensure your rug still has personality despite its neutral color, opt for the texture.

The psychology behind the colors

But if you really want to use the carpet as a color focal point, it's interesting to understand how each color can influence your environment.

Red is stimulating. The common emotions triggered by red are love, war and hunger. This makes it great for a bedroom or dining room.

Yellow is the most cheerful and energetic color. It may symbolize extravagance due to its association with gold. It can be used to promote energy and motivation in an office or to be fun and welcoming in an entertainment room.

Green is the color of life or the color associated with money. Use lighter greens and true greens anywhere you want a natural, refreshing vibe.

Blue is a solid and soft color, representative of the sky and the sea. It symbolizes loyalty, trust and wisdom. Opposite to red, slows down the body's metabolism, creating a calming and soothing effect. Use blue in any room where you want to promote relaxation. Avoid in dining rooms and kitchens.

Purple is a mixture of red and blue. It symbolizes power, luxury and wealth. Purple is great for a girl's room or an office where you want to embrace your power or wealth.

Black is a formal color that suggests power and mystery. If used correctly, it can create a sense of elegance.

White is purity. Gives a simple feeling of cleanliness and innocence. It is the color of perfection, for all imperfections stand out with white. White is a great color for a home if it can be maintained. Keep in mind that it will be hard to clean, and a dirty white carpet loses its pure feel.

As you can see, the choice of color can influence how we feel indoors, the feel it conveys to the environment and can also help in the practicality of the place.

In the end, what matters is that your home looks like you always dreamed!
