SELECTING CARPET GUIDE

Color

Color sets the mood within a space. That's why it may be best to start the carpet search by thinking about the purpose of the room. It's also helpful to consider how you want people to feel when they walk inside. While keeping these things in mind, be aware of the colors that catch your eye in fabrics, paint swatches, and magazines..

Pattern

Choosing the right patterns is essential for your decorating plan. It can visually stretch the dimensions of a space, define areas within your home and reinforce a room’s character. For example, carpets in floral, animal prints or geometric patterns can give a room instant personality. As a rule of thumb for patterns, choose a theme and build your plan from there.

Texture

While texture is directly related to the way your carpet feels, its consistency also determines the appearance of your carpet. Be it rough, soft, thick or smooth—your carpet adds to the collection of textures found in your home.
