Flooring & Floor Covering
Mar 29, 2015 3:10 pm
So I've picked all my interior colors except my carpet.
I have already added $500.00 to my quote to upgrade from Cat 1 (ugly patterns) to Cat 2, pretty plush look.
It's a builder's range carpet and I have no idea what the brand is, but here is the photo of my colour options:
And here is all my other colour choices for the interior:
The floor tile is on the bottom of the picture, a light grey porcelain with patterns in matt which will be laid throughout the house. The carpet will be in the three bedrooms only.
My walls will be Haymes White on White:
Overall colour scheme for the house will be neutrals with blue/teals, maybe some soft browns.
Lastly, I don't have any kids but I do plan to have a lot of fluffy animals (cats, dogs, rabbits). Though I don't intend for any of them to enter the bedrooms, there will probably be transfer from clothing and such.
So which colour carpet should I pick from the above?
Silver, Blue, Blue/Gray, Cream, Tan, Chocolate?

Blue /gray or tan for me....moreso blue gray due to your wall color
Silver and cream too light and choc, blue too dark

I'm a fan of the silver grey- the 2nd 'grey' sample starting from the left side.
I have a similar shade in my house and it shows no marks, after having cleaned toddler spillages.
Don't let ur animals on the carpet though- I caught our beagle wetting a patch and it was really hard to see where she had done it, to clean it.
We don't have white walls (we have dark grey with white trim) but white walls and grey carpet will look fresh and its a neutral palette for you to introduce other colour with furnishings, if you want to.

Seems everyone likes the blue/gray, tan or chocolate brown. Which are exactly the three I'm torn between!
The blue/grey is a bit commercial for me, but otherwise I think it would be nice.. little worried it would clash with the tiles, but I also worry about everything being too brown/beige.
I like the tan one, but I worry it will be matchy matchy with the tiles, but it's very neutral looking.
I love the dark chocolate, but I think it will really limit my style options for the bedrooms and it will become the main feature of the room..
Hard to decide.

I would go with Blue, Tan or Chocolate. Many people choose dark carpets for light rooms and light carpets for dark rooms. But I personally think that you should choose whatever you like most, no matter the rules. Be very careful with the fabrics, if you're going to have pets. Some pet stains are quite hard to be removed and if you choose the wrong detergent you may ruin it. Although I like natural fabrics, I would never pick them for my home, since I have both kinds and pets.
Our homes are reflections of ourselves. If you respect your home, you respect yourself.

Thanks guys! I think I'm going to sneak down to Bunnings with my tile sample and look at some colours. It won't be an exact match to my carpet choices, but might help me narrow it down.
