Need help with carpet color
April 5, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Have a large, well-lit loft and 2 connecting bedrooms that need carpet replaced. Walls are mix between SW Everyday White and Realistic Beige. I do not like beige or wheat toned carpets, and the more taupe colors look muddy to me.I love an almost black dark charcoal carpet, but am very hesitant to put in something that dramatic and dark. No furniture yet, so no constraints there! Any help or suggestions?

You talk about two connecting bedrooms - is this via a hallway? I have laid charcoal carpet before and provided it is not a high traffic area it works beautifully. However, the better quality you have the longer lasting and more durable your carpet will be so you need to factor this into your consideration.

there are hundreds of carpet color choices out there. Everyone has their idea of what is considered too dark or muddy. At the end of the day you are the person living there so nothing we pick really matters.

Thanks for your thoughts. I love the dark charcoal carpet. I am just trying to avoid a disaster, considering that I cannot find any photos of something even vaguely similar. I guess my real question is whether or not it is completely unreasonable from a design standpoint to use that dark a carpet color

I like the look of this medium gray wall to wall carpet. A really dark, almost black carpet will not conceal light pet hair or lint well.
