In short, make the decision depends on your personality and choice what color carpet you love to see in your home. I am going to tell you about some ideas about color which will help you to pick the right color carpet for your home.

Choose a carpet color that fits your existing furniture and design:

Using existing furniture and accents in your room is a great way to reduce color options. Think about the paint, furniture, art, curtains, and decorations in your room. Select a shadow that is in the same color family as the other items in the room so that everything looks united. For example, if you have a red sofa and you want to highlight your carpet then select any light color carpet like white, ivory or match with the color of wall. So that it will show as a focal point. If you put a red carpet with red sofa then it will mix and match. Carpet color should work well with the existing accessories color so it’s better to pick a natural color carpet because it will work with any color furniture perfectly.

Select Bold pattern and a darker color for high traffic area:

If you are going to buy a rug for placing it in a high traffic area then shop a dark color carpet because it will hide the spot and dust. If you place a white or ivory carpet in a hall then it will be dirty frequently. You can take a brown color, black color, dark green, dark blue color, etc. for a high traffic area.
