Today’s carpet colors add the wow factor to any room

Monday, November 22, 2021 6:45 PM

Remember when wall-to-wall carpeting was always in a non-distinctive pale yellow or off-white color? It was almost as if the floor was supposed to disappear, but no more. Today's homeowners are making stunning design statements with pops of color, whether they go with the newest jewel-tone colors or remain with classic, time-honored neutrals.

When you walk into our carpet store, you'll see red, blue, green, and more, including gray, now considered the "new neutral. We can thank modern technology for this, as the mills can create deeper and richer colors for their collections.

Jewel tones for a stunning design statement

It's said that if you want to transform a room, change the floor covering, and there's no better way to add excitement than choosing a jewel-tone rug; these are hues that mimic gemstones found in nature, such as sapphires, rubies, amethysts, emeralds, amber or garnet. They provide an atmosphere of luxury and opulence to any room.

Why designers still love neutral color palettes

A neutral backdrop coordinates with anything and works in any decor, from traditional to contemporary, urban modern, California coastal, etc.

They might be calm but make no mistake: they're vivid. It's also easy to combine neutrals with jewel tones: layer an area rug over your broadloom. Layering is a big trend this year, and if you come to our custom area rug/carpet binding department, we'll help you turn vision into reality.

Other popular colors include:

1. Blue: This favorite among designers enables you to “pop” without overwhelming the space.

2. Green: This piggybacks on another trend called biophilia. Loosely translated, biophilia means "love of nature" and reminds us of foliage and other elements of nature.

3. Gray: Any shade will do, whether a light gray hue with a blue undertone or a slate gray.
