Not sure where to start with matching carpet to wall colour? What do you choose first? With so many options how do you decide? When matching carpet to wall colour it is worth taking your time. As flooring experts with over 10 years experience, we are used to helping our customers choose their perfect flooring. Our top tips for making your decision are:

Think About Your Lifestyle

With so many different ranges of carpet available, we have a huge range available, you need to think carefully about what you will be using the room for and how this fits with your day to day life. You might have your heart set on a bright white fluffy carpet but aren’t prepared to keep up with the strenuous cleaning required to keep it pristine.

Be Careful of Colour

Matching colours, opposing colours or a mixture of prints, there are so many colour options for matching carpet to wall colour. If you want to stick to neutral colours be careful that your walls and carpets don’t blend too much, matching darker and lighter tones can work well. A bright, bold choice of carpet, like tartan, can really transform a room and add a dash of personality. You will likely see your carpet and wall colour choice every day, so make sure to choose something that you truly love.

More Than Carpet

Is carpet really the best choice for you? Avoid the difficulty of matching carpet to wall colour by choosing a different type of flooring. By adding a rug to a wooden or laminate floor you may be able to recreate the carpet effect but without the commitment of having to stick to one colour. Wooden floors are an excellent hard wearing and long lasting option. Joe Walker’s Flooring has a huge range of flooring options including affordable luxury vinyl tiles. Vinyl flooring lets you create a realistic wooden floor effect at a fraction of the cost.
