You have many options when it comes to choosing a new carpet for your home. Below is an article on some of the benefits of choosing a darker color carpet.

When it comes time to choose a carpet for your home, whether you’re recarpeting or you are building a new home, there are so many options that it can become overwhelming.

Why Choose a Darker Colored Carpet?

If you are currently in this position and have discarded the idea of installing darker carpets in your home, below is an article from Charlotte Cleanpro about why you should give the idea some further thought.

It’s Subtle

If you lay a bright white or colored fluffy carpet in your home then all that you and your visitor’s eyes are going to be drawn to is your carpet. The same can be said for carpets with patterns either printed on them or woven in. While this may be nice for a short period to show off your carpet, as you start to decorate your home it will begin to draw attention away from the other style choices you make. A darker colored carpet is unintrusive, which means that it doesn’t catch the eye and, instead, leaves your guests to pay attention to the other style choices you have made for your home.

Harder to Stain

If you have toddlers in your home or even pets, then there’s a good chance that small stains are going to occur during your carpet’s daily life. While you will, of course, do your best to clean these as quickly as possible, the longer you leave them, the more likely it is that these spills will cause a noticeable stain. A darker colored carpet, on the other hand, hides stains much better than their brightly colored counterparts. While this doesn’t mean that you won’t need to tend to your spills, it does mean that if you can’t get to them as quickly as you would like, there’s a significantly lower possibility that it will cause a visible stain. If your carpet could do with a good cleaning or you just can’t seem to win a battle against a particular stain, Charlotte Cleanpro can help. Call them today at (980) 349-6335 to find out how Cleanpro's proprietary ION Exchange cleaning system can bring your carpets back to life safely and in an eco-friendly manner. Of course, it’s worth pointing out that once your carpet has been cleaned by Cleanpro, it’s ready to be walked on in a matter of hours, not days!

Last Longer

It’s true that the type of carpet you decide to lay will determine just how long it lasts. For example, a long threaded carpet won’t tend to last as long as a short-haired carpet because, as each thread becomes loose and pulled out, the carpet can quickly start to look tattered. This is particularly true if your carpet sees a lot of heavy foot traffic, leaving abrasion and friction marks. However, if you install a darker carpet, while you will still need to choose a good quality carpet, loose fibers and abrasion marks aren’t as noticeable. This means that you can expect a much longer lifespan with a darker colored carpet, simply because the nature of the color is better at hiding damage.

Control Your Space

The last thing that you want is for your home to look like a bare warehouse, which is exactly what bright and white carpets can do. Even though you will have furnishings, looking at a lot of one color or at a lot of white makes the space look empty and expansive. Darker colored carpets tend to bring in the perception of your home’s space, helping it to feel fuller and less bare. This can be particularly beneficial if you have a large area to cover and not a lot of furniture to fill the space with.

A More Elegant Feel

Just like a tuxedo or a cocktail dress, black is the color of elegance. If you have a small apartment or you are looking to install expensive or modern furniture and finishings, black can be a great complementary color to add an extra touch of elegance and intimacy to your home and its personality.
