Are you carpeting a small or large room?

If you want to make a large room look cozier, you might want to consider darker colors. On the other hand, if you're trying to make a small room seem larger, you might consider lighter color carpets and painting the walls a lighter shade of your carpet color to create the illusion of a larger room.


"Finding the right color is really important to our customers. I once had someone send in a washcloth, because it was the only thing she had that showed the exact color she was looking for. But once I knew the color she wanted, I was able to send her a bunch of different samples to choose from. She picked one of them and placed her order the next week. All because of a washcloth."

- Dianne, Telephone Sales Representative


Are you carpeting a dark room or one that gets lots of sunlight?

If you want to make a dark room seem brighter and more cheerful, choose bright colors, such as yellows, oranges, or reds. But if you want to make a bright room seem a bit more formal, choose cooler colors, such as blues, greens or violets.


Are you carpeting an active or quiet area of your home?

When you're carpeting an active environment, such as a family room, warm reds and oranges can complement the mood. And when you're carpeting quieter areas, like bedrooms, cool blues and greens will help maintain the serene feeling.


Are you carpeting an area near an outside door or an uncarpeted area?

Most of the soil that can get trapped in a carpet comes in from outside or is picked up from the uncarpeted areas of your home. If the soil most likely to be tracked around your home is dark, you can hide it with dark-colored carpets, such as browns, deep blues or dark reds. But if the soil coming into your home is lighter in color, you may want to hide it with lighter-color carpets.
