December 13, 2014
One of the most common questions we receive here at KOHIMARAN is how to choose the right color of carpet for a room. This can be a tough decision and when it is known that the CARPET you are buying is a LEGACY OF FINE ART , no one wants to make the wrong choice.
Of course every home is different and we all have different taste, but there are some basic tips that will help you:
The importance of the carpet in the room
When choosing the color of your carpet, the first question you have to ask yourself is if the carpet is going to be the focus of the room or if you just want it to blend in the decor. If the carpet is going to be the main focal point when entering the room, it is best to choose a color that will contrast strongly or which will match your temperament with the rest of the colors of the room. On the other hand, if you want to create a balanced space in the same tones, choose a color in the same scale as the rest of the room.
Warm or cold
The colors you choose in your interior have a strong importance and they will have an impact on your behavior and comfort. Warm colors tend to be stimulating, while cold colors give a peaceful and calm impression. Even though the carpet is going to be just another element in the ensemble of the room, the selection of colors will help to give a warm or a cold feeling. the example will be the color scale where reds, yellows, oranges and cream colors where categorize as warm, and greys, greens and blues as cold.
Monochrome or polychrome
One of the big questions regarding t he colors is the quantity of color. Shall we choose a plain color carpet or a carpet with a rich pattern and variety of colors?One should realize that a monochrome color would give a modern minimalistic touch, while a carpet rich in colors and motifs will tend to translate into elegance, sophistication and class.
Don’t blindly follow the trends, adapt them to your own style
Each year or season we have a collection of color trends which are exposed or broadcasted in all over interior design magazines, interior Decoration Blogs and websites. These are helpful and give us ideas, but when it comes to the selection of carpets, one should not male these trends as the absolute guide. As experienced and found out that a handmade carpet is exceptionally a long-lasting item that as legacy says IT WILL OUT LAST THE BUYER will be a part of your home for many years, so it has to be timeless in a way. At KOHIMARAN we feel that the inspiration from the trends of the season or design should be able to inspire but adoption should be done to the personality of an BUYER which in reality means THE BUYER’S taste and interior.
