There is no getting away from the fact that carpets are a big investment for any home. You will have the same carpet for many years. Therefore it is very important when choosing the right colour carpet, you have longevity in mind.

We have created this blog to help you know what to consider when choosing the colour of your carpet. Of course, our in-store flooring specialists in Peterborough are always here to help you with any queries or to recommend the right flooring for your requirements. But this will give some helpful advice to start you off with choosing the right colour carpet.

When thinking about colour, you need to think about the rest of the room. How often do you change the décor of the room or the colour of your walls? If you change the colours of the room frequently, then you need a carpet colour that can match or suit different wall colours.

The functionality of the room

Very often, our customer’s choice of carpet colour can be based on the functionality of the room. This is a good place to start, as you want your carpet to look great for years to come. You want to consider thinking about a carpet colour that will disguise stains. This is especially important for customers with young children or those that regularly entertain. Dark-coloured carpets, heathered or tweed carpets, are ideal for homes like these as they can conceal stains, fluff and pet hair easily. These ranges are also ideal for rented properties, with carpets needing to withstand daily life between tenants.

If you have pets, hiding dirt could be top of your list when it comes to choosing the colour of your carpet. Again having darker shades will help to disguise dirt, and is ideal for rooms leading to outside spaces, such as a lounge and patio doors leading to the garden.

Alternatively, you could opt for a patterned carpet where dirt is harder to see. Patterns are great for entrance halls, stairs and landings as these areas can become dirtier with people coming in and out of the house, and areas that have to withstand a heavier, more concentrated footfall of traffic.

Making spaces appear bigger

You may also be thinking about carpet colours to make a room look bigger. Lighter-coloured carpets will work to make a room look bigger, brighter, lighter and more spacious. Take a look at our cream, yellow, beige, light blue and even purple carpets. They will all give the feeling of space to the room. Avoiding darker shades in small spaces is also key, as these colours will make the room appear smaller and more enclosed. Getting the balance to practicality is the way forward.
