5 Tips & Inspiration For Using Colorful Carpets

Choosing your carpet is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when redecorating your home or recreating your home’s vision … from room to room. It’s the base of the decor and the base of the atmosphere. Carpets can help set the tone and personality of any space, so it’s important you choose wisely and in the case of bright color carpets … choose courageously.

Bright color carpets are fun and playful. They can brighten up a space and add pizzazz. They can set off a monochromatic theme or create a theme all on its own. So today we’re here to show you just how much fun you can have if you decide on a bright color carpet.

1. Help enhance your theme.

Choosing a bright color for your carpet can help enhance the theme you’ve chosen. For example, using a bright, rich green creates a natural feel and can enhance a space’s overall organic essence.

2. Jump outside the box.

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.

The brightness will add personality and the stripes will add length. Use the stripe trick when you’d like a room to look bigger, use the color trick when you wants to create a personality and depth.

5. Select something that makes you happy.

When you select a color, select one of your favorites. Everyone has a color that just makes them a bit happier and have a bit of a better day. For some it’s the a vibrant, sunshiney yellow and others enjoy the femininity of something pink … but whatever you do choose make sure it makes you happy to look at every single day.

Don’t choose your new carpet too quickly but don’t be afraid to stand out and make an innovative decision! Check out all these other beautiful, bright carpets and creative ways to use them in your home decor.
