carpet color

annabobrienJuly 26, 2013
Need wall to wall for family room. Walls are grey with white wainscoting. Picture shows nothing that will be staying. Purchased a grey couch but would like maybe a cream colored carpet so everything is not silver or grey. Have to have wall to wall do not want to invest in repairing floor. Please I really need help on type of carpet. Color, Plush, Berber ,design like squares or diamonds what would be the best choice. Thank You everyone

I would get a patterned carpet, since there is an entrance to the outside. Your color choices are quite open, since there are a lot of colors that go with gray. One option I would consider is a patterned brown carpet. Home Theater, Orange and Brown Office, Bachelor's Pad, and Dining Room.

I like the pattern idea. Go gray background with a black design. Have someone bring samples to your house so you can see in your light.

I am going today to look at carpets. Thank you for all your help. I never thought of a pattern I thought it would limit patterns on other objects like ottoman drapes etc. Can I use dark woods for entertainment center or end tables

Sure. The trick with mixing patterns is scale. You can see some rooms that are full of pattern, but scale and color make them work. Also, stripes work well with other patterns. Good luck!

I'd play it safe and stay away from a definite pattern. It could work but as you mentioned it also could limit your other choices.

Raise your curtain rod as high as possible when you get new drapes. Not fond of the large grommet style that's there now.

Procede with caution
