Carpets can add comfort, warmth and versatility to a home, and they can drastically change the look and feel of a room. In fact, changing a carpet in a living room can deliver an entirely new character to the space. Choosing the perfect carpet for a home requires determining what type of decor you want, as well as the number of people in your home and the amount of time you're willing to spend on the upkeep of the carpet.

Contemporary Decor

Contemporary decor has a modern aesthetic that often includes clean lines, earth tones, right angles and solid colours. Contemporary design is often stark and sterile. Enhance the contemporary decorating style by choosing a more modern design for your living room carpet. Contemporary carpets are typically solid colours, which can make the room appear larger. They also use earth tones that blend into the decor rather than standing out from it. Consider using a carpet with a light geometric pattern on it. This can make the room look smaller but does enhance the contemporary style.

Country French Decor

Country French decor is both romantic and dramatic. Country French uses rich colours, undulating curves and scroll work. It includes rich, upholstered furniture with strong prints. Choose a carpet that will enhance your living room's French country style. These carpets could be white, which can make your room look larger but are unsuitable for homes with children or pets. The carpets could also be light pink, blue, yellow or green, as this decorating style often incorporates pastel colours. French country decor can also be enhanced with carpets that have prints of curves and scroll work. Choose carpets with light prints so that they don't contrast too much with other prints in the room.

Traditional Decor

The traditional decorating style is similar to contemporary, as it contains colours that are natural and light. However, traditional decor also includes more classic curved lines, such as billowy curtains. Enhance a traditional-decor living room by using carpets that have light or earth tones. Rooms with traditional decor rarely have carpets as their centrepiece.
