The color of your carpet serves a variety of purposes in your home—like style, function, livability, comfort, and resell value. Carpet covers a large area, so it matters to choose the right material and color for your space.

We specialize in working with a variety of different flooring options with carpet cleaning, and are happy to share with you what we know when it comes to narrowing down your options and choosing the right material.
Deciding on a Carpet Color
It actually helps to decide on the other elements of your design first—like furniture and paint colors—since these tend to be either existing or more specific for design. Then, you can choose a carpet color that pairs well.
This is a principle that can be applied throughout your design process, too. Start with design elements that have less wiggle room or a more limited selection, then pair more simple touches like accent decor, bedding, and textiles last.
Neutral Colors Are Always a Good Choice
Neutral colored carpet is by far the most popular—and wisely so. Bright colors can be overwhelming, and homeowners tend to tire of them quickly. It’s more cost effective and smarter from a design perspective to choose a shade that will transition better as the years go by, then add more bold colors in less permanent ways like with accent decor or paint.
Stick with earthy tones, like gray or beige. If you want to step it up a notch, use unique textures and patterns to make these neutral colors pop. Flecked neutral colored carpeting also adds some variety and hides particles and stains better, too.
Avoiding extremely light or dark colors and sticking with a medium tone is also a great way to camouflage stains, dust, hair, lint, and other debris.
