Many interior designers are fixated on furniture and wall colours but some do not give flooring the time of day. In most homes in the UK, a soft natural carpet is added to most of the key areas in the house, apart from kitchens and bathrooms and those houses that have classic slate or oak flooring. There are certain things you need to take into account when choosing a carpet though, and one of those is the colour of the wall. We feel the wall colour should complement the colour of your carpet and vice versa. Let’s say you have grey walls and your aim was to create a minimalistic room, you don’t want to be adding colour to your carpet, you need to choose a shade that complements the wall colour such as a shade of grey, a shade of brown or even a more pale colour. Adding a bold colour would work against the grey colour of the wall, and it will leave your home looking a tad dated!
