Striped carpets are very popular and also very versatile. They stand out with their simplicity and classical beauty. But there’s more than one way in which you can make a striped carpet look beautiful in a room. We have put together a whole series of example and tips and each category has something special to teach you.
Match the room color palette.
One way of making a striped carpet look beautiful in a room is to choose one that has the same colors as the rest of the rooms. This way it will easily blend in and the pattern won’t even stand out that much. It doesn’t necessarily have to feature all the colors in the room but just the main ones or similar shades. You can also match it with some of your accent pieces in the room.
If you don’t want the carpet to blend in but rather to stand out in the room, then you should choose vivid and bold colors. They can also be colors that contrast with the rest of the room. For example, if the room is decorated with warm colors, the carpet can feature a combination of cold shades. If it’s decorated with neutrals then you can choose vibrant and dynamic colors for the carpet.
A Mediterranean feel.
If you want to create a Mediterranean-inspired décor in the room then a striped carpet can be very helpful. Pay attention to the colors that you choose. In the case of the carpet, a very nice and very suitable combination is white and blue. It reflects the elegance and also the essence of a Mediterranean interior. You can also match it with other accessories in the room and create a cohesive and harmonious décor.
Carpets for the stairs.
Usually the staircase is a very important element in any home. So if you have one make sure you allow it to stand out. You can easily do that with a striped carpet. Vertical lines are more suited for a staircase than horizontal ones. The colors you choose can vary. For example, a wooden staircase could feature a carpet that has warm colors and earthy tones but if the wood has a light finish then brighter colors could look better.
Carpets in brown shades.
Brown is a beautiful color even though it doesn’t stand out that much. It’s an earthy shade and, when combined with similar colors such as beige for example, the result is a very nice look. You can use striped carpet featuring shades of brown if you want the room to feel more inviting and also warm and cozy. Also, such a carpet will also give the room an elegant feel.
Classic black and white stripes.
The best thing about classical combinations such as the black and white is that they go with everything. So whether you want a casual décor, an elegant look, an artistic feel, a modern interior or a traditional home, you can always rely on a black and white carpet. It will be a beautiful accent piece for the room and it can be easily complemented by any type of décor.
As you know, Swedish homes are particularly characterized by simplicity and by a very simple and bright color palette. There are not many ways in which you can introduce pattern or color in such a décor so using a striped carpet would be a great idea. You can choose one with neutral shades like white and grey or black and white but you can also add some color into the room if you feel that you have to.
