We are decorating our new home. We have painted our walls in Dulux Perfectly Taupe. Need advice on carpet?

Deal Score0

Have just bought a new home. We are not going to do much decor yet just paint the walls and change the carpets downstairs only as we will be doing it up properly in the next couple of years. We have chosen Dulux Perfectly Taupe for the walls in the living room but I am really unsure as to what shade of carpet will go and what colour settees. Any advice will be gratefully received.

    Taupe will go with about anything,good choice. My suggestion would be to find a sofa ect. in the color you like (since you’ll be able to keep it when you change everything in two years,and pick a color from that for the sofa. That way you won’t have to buy a new sofa and carpet when you change everything out,just repaint) Much cheaper than rebuying everything again.

    I always get an oatmeal berber with several shades of tan, cream and brown. It goes with everything and shows almost nothing (two cats). Take a painted board to the carpet store to match the taupe in the walls.

    Find a neutral carpet because paint color is way cheaper to change in the future than carpet is. My suggestions are light brown, cream, green, gray, blueish gray.

    We just painted our living room and dining room and are getting new carpet. Our paint colors are pinkish-salmon on one wall, medium-dark gray on two walls, purplish-taupe on 3 walls. We chose a light-medium grayish-brown medium-long Frieze carpet. Sort’ve like a shag but a little shorter and thicker. The carpet hasn’t arrived yet, but I think it will look nice. The carpet will go in the living room, the dining room has birch hardwood floors.

    I re-carpeted my home several yrs ago I found it best to go with neutral colors like browns with light black swirls they hold up best to traffic as well as spills ,stay away from light colors such as biege,white,cream,and gray they might look nice but within a short period of time you’ll notice small black dots appearing in the carpet and impossible to get rid of
