Choosing the Right Carpet for a Formal Living Room

Elegant Dining Room

When you choose carpet for a den, a kids’ room, or another high-traffic area, you are sure to prioritize the practical aspects of your flooring, like durability and stain resistance. But if you want new carpet for a formal living room, you are free to have some fun and create a truly luxurious look. Keep these tips in mind when choosing carpet:

Prioritize Aesthetics

The color, quality, and style of the carpet will set the scene for your formal living room. Color is a major element of interior design and can influence the atmosphere of the whole room. If you want your living room to be cozy and inviting—where all your guests will feel welcome—consider a warm color, such as rich terracotta or earthy red. Cool colors like blue, green, and purple are very calming and relaxing—perfect for a living room where you want to unwind. If you would prefer to make a statement with colorful furniture and décor, consider neutral colors for your carpet to create balance.

Add Lighting to the Equation

Light can greatly affect a carpet’s appearance; different times of day and types of lighting, from natural sunlight to overhead lamps, will change how your carpet looks. To get the best idea of your living room’s final look, be sure to take home carpet samples from the showroom and view them under various lighting conditions. Even better, use a shop-at-home service to have a trained sales consultant bring carpet samples straight to you.

Consider Visual Space

Color and tone can influence how small or large a room appears. For instance, lighter colors tend to reflect light and open up a space, while darker colors can make a room seem smaller. If you have a small living room, you may prefer light-colored carpet and minimal furniture. On the other hand, if you’re aiming for a more intimate feeling, dark carpet will add the perfect touch.
