Before you Dis Wall-Wall Carpet, Read This Decorating Guide

Updated: Jun 17

If wall-to-wall carpet reminds you of the avocado shag you had growing up, then you may think considering it for your home a serious decorating offense. Not so fast. With today's plethora of carpet colors, patterns, and constructions, you don't have to settle for a boring solid neutral cut pile or Berber carpet. When deciding on a decorating scheme for your room, we suggest selecting your carpet first. Start with the flooring and you won't get locked into an unexciting carpet choice as the only option to go with other patterns and colors chosen for the room. As you'll see in the photos below, designing from the floor up is often the easiest route to a stunning space with minimal effort.

Geometric Carpets

Black and White Geometric Carpet

Geometric carpets are a great decorating choice when used with neutral walls and furniture. They not only add interest to an otherwise bland space but also allow you to show off your personality. This striking geometric black and white carpet provides an attractive ground for the off-white furnishings. Casual pillows add an element of surprise to the minimalist sofa. The artwork, with its bold pop of color, is all that's needed to provide balance and make this room a stand-out!

Wall to wall carpet can be an ideal choice for creating a cozy, stylish environment. It provides warmth, noise reduction and protection against slips and falls. Wall to Wall carpeting also provides a comfortable place for kids to sit and play and is durable and easy to maintain when cared for properly. It visually expands a space and imbues a sense of luxury, while being a cost effective alternative to hardwood or stone.

Organic Patterned Carpets

Carpets with organic designs are all the rage and we love the soft warm tones in this abstract carpet as a counterpoint to the cool blue hues of the walls and bed.

Even if other areas of the home feature area rugs over a hard surface, installing

wall-to-wall carpet in bedrooms has many advantages. Considering the bed takes up the majority of space in many bedrooms, wall-wall carpeting allows total flexibility for furniture placement. It provides a soft surface for walking barefoot. Often the bedrooms are the smallest rooms in the home and installing carpet wall to wall will visually enlarge the space.

Oriental Carpets

An updated oriental patterned carpet in deep blues keeps this room traditional but with a modern edge. When decorating with oriental carpets, clean-lined furniture and accessories imbue a fresh feel and won't leave the room looking dated.

Oriental carpets never go out of style and are a fabulous choice for an easy to maintain floor covering. Oriental style carpets are available in a variety of price points and constructions. From wool blend Axminster carpets to tufted polypropylene carpets, you're sure to find a style to suit your needs and budget.

Striped Carpets

There's no pattern quite so adaptable as a stripe. The beautiful striped carpet in this office space makes a bold design statement and breaks up its otherwise neutral palette.

Striped carpets are extremely popular for stairs, hallways, and small living spaces as

they can set the tone of the room as well as being a practical choice for heavy traffic areas. Decorating with stripes allows you to add another dimension to the room with choices ranging from classic to understated, bold and colorful, coastal, earthy, and more.

Striped patterned carpets are simple, versatile and are a great way to transform the look of your room.
