Have you ever thought about how the colors in your home can impact your mood? The color of your new carpet can do more than just make a design statement. Colors can make a space feel bigger, warmer, more relaxing, and more. It’s important to keep this in mind when selecting your new carpet colors. Read below to learn all about how colors can impact the look and feel of a room from the experts at Floor Coverings International Birmingham!
Colors for Added Space
If you want a particular room to feel larger, the color of your carpet can make a big difference. Darker colors tend to make a room feel smaller, so it is best to stick to something on the lighter side.
Colors and Mood
The colors used in a room can have an impact on how we feel while in that room. Do you want to feel more awake and lively in the family room or calm and restful in your bedroom? Colors can help with this.
Blue: This color has a calming effect and helps to decrease your heart rate. This makes blue an ideal color for your bedroom but it also works great in any room of the house where you want to feel at ease. We suggest using a blue area rug over hardwood or installing blue carpet. If the room is small, go with a lighter color such as baby blue.
Red: This color is known for increasing your energy and appetite. This makes it a great option for the dining room! While plain red carpet may be a bit overpowering, the color can be mixed in with a design or pattern.
Green: This color has a soothing effect and makes you feel restful. Green is a great option for the living room or bedroom. We suggest mint carpet tiles to create a fun and unique look.
Purple: This color helps to stimulate the imagination. This makes it great for the office, craft room, or living room. Try installing a lavender carpet or a patterned area rug with purple mixed in.
Yellow: This color conveys happiness and energy. Yellow is a great option for a child’s room, playroom, or the family room. Since yellow is a pretty bold color, we suggest installing carpeting that uses yellow flecks or has the color worked into the design.
