So it’s time to get new carpet, but what color do you get your new carpet in? If you’re replacing old carpet, you might be looking to update the space and choose something that will refresh and revitalize the look of your home. Or it’s possible you’re having carpet put in for the first time and you’re really not sure where to start in your decision-making process. Thankfully, there are several simple considerations you can make to help you narrow down your options and choose the right carpet color for your home.
Put It In Neutral
Neutrals are a timeless classic that will always be a good option for carpet, regardless of your furniture and decoration choices. If you have neutral furniture, the carpet will create a cohesive look. If you have bold furniture, the carpet will be a platform for them so eyes aren’t drawn to your floor instead of your brilliant furniture pieces. Neutrals also maintain the value and desirability of your home if you ever decide to sell it, since potential buyers don’t have to worry about whether the carpet will go with their furniture or if they’ll need to replace it.
Go With the Flow
If neutrals are too bland and boring for you, the next best method for choosing a carpet color is to go with your aesthetic. If your room is heavily based on a specific color, you can either choose a carpet in that same color or a contrasting color to give the room an interesting and eye-catching look. Consider the colors on your furniture and walls, and test some different ideas to find the right aesthetic for your space.
Mind the Traffic
Something important to consider before settling on a color for your new carpet is how much abuse it will have to endure. There’s something luxurious about a plush white carpet that might call to you, but if you have pets, toddlers, or even clumsy adults in the home then a light carpet won’t look good for very long. While it’s still an option for the determined, it will require a lot of extra maintenance and need to be regularly replaced to keep it from becoming dingy and riddled with stains.

All we will need to know is what areas in your home we would be doing and how we can gain access (hidden key, lock box, coded entry, realtor, neighbor, etc.). This is tailored around the homeowner who needs to get their unit ready for the season or simply enhancing their home but does not want to leave their home or can’t make it to town (Ocean City, Berlin, Salisbury, Worcester / Wicomico County Maryland & Sussex County Delaware).
This service is not new to us. We have already been providing this service for our customers for the past 26 years.
