Are trying to figure out what flooring will best match your home décor? If so, before you make any decisions, it’s essential to take a few moments to consider the room you’re redoing. In doing so, you’ll be able to address what SmartStrand carpet could handle the amount of traffic in that space, as well as what color would match the décor you already have.

Not sure where to start? No problem, just check out the following 5 tips to get you started on your flooring renovation journey!

1 – Figure out the primary use of your space.

Luckily, this won’t take very long! You just need to consider what you use your room for the most. Is it a children’s room? If so, you may want to choose a dark carpet color as they hide stains best. Is it a bedroom or other space with a lot less activity? Then you can certainly opt for a lighter shade of SmartStrand carpet.

2 – Consider how much foot traffic the room will see.

Another very important thing to consider is how much foot traffic there will be in that room. Are we talking about a space that sees little traffic, like a bedroom? Or is it a busier location, like a hallway or living room. Normally, we recommend darker tones for hotspots, while lighter tones are fine in rooms with less traffic.

3 – Browse current trending options.

Along with your favorite tones, check out the current trending options. You never know what color will pique your interest! Over the last several decades, beige was always the preferred neutral color. But recently, gray has become hugely popular and is now the go-to neutral tone. It’s a SmartStrand choice that certainly offers classic yet stylish flair, while easily matching any décor in a space.

4 – Look over other palette choices.

When buying carpeting, consider what you want your space to feel like. Color choices play a huge role not only in visual appeal but in the sensation of a room as well. Factors like natural lighting, decorations on the wall, curtains, and various personal preferences certainly play a big part in figuring out the creation of a room.

5 – Add personal taste to your space.

Lastly, don't forget to add your personal touch to your new room. It is your house after all, isn't it? So, while neutrals may make it easier to select carpeting, you should undoubtedly check out the latest SmartStrand carpet color trends.
