If you want to create creativity and imagination, go for it! Choose a carpet that is not only bright but shaped a little differently with a pattern all its own. This idea is perfect for a craft room, a child’s playroom or any space that you want to feel a bit more eclectic.

3. Get matchy-matchy.

If you’re already partial to color and use it on the walls or in your home accessories,  match your carpet. Use a carpet that’s neutral with bright details to complete the overall look and style of the room. It’s chic and very stylish.

4. Use stripes.
