Carpet Question Corner #11: Am I boring if I just want beige carpet?

We like you just the way you are!

The fact is, everyone has their own style when it comes to home and business decor. So there is no right or wrong answer. Carpet is the foundation of your room’s look. It can be a neutral color, blending in with fabrics and other surfaces, or it can be a vibrant focal point of the room, making a statement that reflects your style.

Ever-popular beige carpet can make a room look spacious. Environmental colors, like blues, deep greens, rosy quartz and stony neutrals are becoming increasingly popular. Warm colors can turn up the heat in a room that lacks light, while cool greens and blues have a calming effect. The good news is that no matter what look you’re going for, there is a carpet color out there to compliment it.

How do you answer consumers when they ask you questions about carpet colors? What tools do you use? What resources do you refer them to? And, which colors are you finding most popular for customers?

No, Miss, beige is not boring, and your choice of carpet is a good and healthy one, however just remember that you walk on carpet and any type of floor covering, increasing the chance of track-in soils showing. Think about picking up your wonderful choice of a beige color on walls, draperies, and upholstered furniture, and choose a complementary color for your carpet that approaches the colors of the soil immediately outside your home, such as darker beiges or something else. Some colors begin to show soil quicker, such as blues, so choose a functional color that will truly enhance your home for a long period of time.
