in Carpet
Nothing beats carpet underfoot for a feeling of warmth and luxury, which is why it remains the most popular form of floor covering. Since this item accounts for a large portion of your budget when furnishing a home, it is important to make a considered choice-the wrong one could be a costly mistake you will just have to live with.
Your initial considerations undoubtedly will focus on the color and design of your carpet. Color seems to be the most important decision and after that choosing between patterns and plains. There are, however, a number of other factors to bear in mind. For instance, it is useful to know a little about different carpet fibers, about the various methods of construction and the different types of pile. Knowing which carpet is most appropriate for different parts of the house is also an important factor to consider when making a purchase.

Color and Design

The decoration and furnishings in the room, the size of the room and your personal preferences will all have to be borne in mind when you choose a new carpet. A small room will appear larger if carpeted with a light color and a small house or flat can be made to seem more spacious if the same neutral color is used throughout. Color seems to be the most important decision and after that choosing between patterns and plains. Neutral colors-beige, sand or grey, for instance will also allow you to change color schemes when redecorating without having to replace little-worn carpet to coordinate.
A patterned carpet need not necessarily make a room appear smaller; small patterns and some geometric designs can have the opposite effect but large bold designs and strong colors do tend generally to have a shrinking effect so save these for rooms that appear over-large and unfriendly.
