Your carpet can really help to make your living room an absolute piece of beauty. There are so many different designs, patterns, and colors to choose from that the options are endless in terms of what you can do and what themes you can create.
However, despite that, there are certain types of carpet designs that work better in a living room than any other room in your house. This is because the living room is effectively the main hub of a house, so the carpet needs to be able to tie all the furniture and ornaments together to make one uniform design. With that in mind, here is a look at some of the top carpet designs for your living room:
Plain Light Carpet
Sometimes, the best interior design is no design at all, and that is mostly true when picking out a carpet for your living room. This is because a living room is full of different items and furniture, and a carpet with an interesting design on it might make the entire space feel busy and cluttered. That’s why a nice light carpet is favored because it can be used to tie all the items together, especially if the color goes with the rest of the room’s color scheme.
Furthermore, a light plain carpet can really help add light to a room, brightening it up and making it look a lot more fresh and airy, which in turn should make it a bit more comfortable as a result. A plain carpet is a must if you’ve chosen to have your furniture, curtains or wallpaper as the more expressive part of the room, as its simplicity is a great way to tone things down and keep the room grounded. To get the most out of your plain carpet, you want to make sure that it’s kept clean due to its light coloration. So be sure to vacuum it frequently and also consider getting some professional carpet cleaning from London Carpet Cleaning Ltd to really make it pop.
Vertical Striped Carpet
A patterned carpet is a really good attraction to a living room as long as the rest of the room is a bit subdued. If you have plain one-tone furniture and cushions, then a striped carpet can be just the thing you need to add some pizazz to the room and make it far more stylish. When laying your vertical striped carpet, you want to ensure that the stripes travel between the two main focal points of the room, as that’s where the eyes are going to be drawn with this design.
It’s also a good idea to have the stripes going between the two walls with the shortest distance between them, as these lines will stretch out the room and make it look a lot bigger and more spacious as a result. For the best results, pick a patterned carpet that sticks with the same main tone (you don’t want a striped carpet that’s both blue and yellow) as this will stop it from looking garish and ugly but will still keep the room looking interesting.
