Fundamentals: how to create impact with your living room carpet

Decorating the living room often translates as painting the walls and moving the furniture. But choosing a new carpet should be at the heart of any true lounge transformation.

Here are three ideas for perfectly finishing your living room with a new carpet.

Plain living room carpets are anything but plain

Don’t be fooled: plain carpets are seriously stylish and often form the foundation of a stunning living room look.

Dark wall colours and rich furnishings will contrast acutely with a plain living room carpet in a light shade. This is a sophisticated and very fashionable finish.

Alternatively, a light colour scheme with a pale neutral carpet will create a modern, but oh-so soft effect. It’s one for the dreamers.

Boost your interior with a coloured lounge carpet

You’ve two major options when choosing a coloured carpet for your living room.

First, go for light walls and pick a lounge carpet in a big colour. You’ll find drama in the contrast.
