Cozying up your home this winter with a new carpet? Of all the colors under the sun, which one do you choose? Although there aren’t any set rules for determining which carpet color is best, there are a few factors to consider:

Lighting – Observe the natural light in your home. Does your room get lots of sunlight or does it stay dark all day long? If you choose a light carpet color, you might be able to brighten up the space (and vise versa).

Size – Size matters when it comes to selecting the right carpet. You can create the illusion of a larger space simply by choosing a solid color. Go with white if you want it to also feel more airy and minimal. Medium and dark shades, on the other hand, can make the room feel more cozy.

Climate – Do you live in a hot climate or a chilly one? Selecting a cool color tone can make your space look cooler, but a warmer hue can have the opposite effect.

Furniture – Remember: your carpet is a long-term investment that must pair up with the furniture you have. That being said, it’s important that the color you choose compliments your upholstery. When in doubt, go with a neutral hue, especially because this gives you the flexibility to change up your furniture later on.

Value – The color carpet you choose should be one that you love, but it should also be timeless. Because when you put your house on the market someday, the last thing you want is to scare off buyers or devalue your home. For example, imagine walking into a model home with wall-to-wall purple carpets. Would you like what you see? Classic colors are usually a better option in this case.
