Adding a brown carpet to a room means to bring a fair share of richness to an interior décor. The color brown is so versatile that you would not feel any sort of restriction in your color choice. Not just the color choice but a brown colored carpet also gives you freedom from that tiring routine of cleaning it again and again, which is in contrast to other light tone carpets.
Things to consider
Having said that adding a brown color carpet gives you ample freedom to choose other colors in your room décor does not mean you need not make color selection carefully. It is a dark, rich color that can make other color tones in a room appear dull and boring if you are unable to balance other elements.
It can altogether make a room look less bright and give it a heavy look, which certainly you would never like to happen. To eliminate any such possibility, we have here brought for you some tips that you should consider while making a brown carpet a part of your room décor:
Give wall design a consideration
Your wall design would certainly depend upon your brown carpet and the overall theme you choose for the room. You can apply wallpapers, or paint the walls in colors and patterns that enhance the beauty of the brown floor carpet. Suppose you set the Victorian theme in your room, then you have to ensure you incorporate everything that matches the theme.
Brown carpet in your Victorian style room would look amazing with wood paneling or textured wallpapers, as your wall décor. If you choose your room décor to be all modern and happening with a brown floor carpet, then bright colored wall paints and wallpapers are what you should go for.
What type of furniture looks best?
While selecting furniture, check whether its style and color complements the brown carpet or not. Brown carpet looks extraordinarily beautiful with the Victorian furniture or some modern furniture pieces that are heavy and full of art. Try to pick pieces that are big and have strong design elements.
Same goes for the color as well, as light colors do not look good. Choose from orange, navy blue, yellow, brown, black, green, and red. Coming to the shape, it should be big, strong, and not delicate at all.
Choose textiles carefully
Brown is a color that makes a room look heavy and dull if not matched up well with some good level of brightness. If you plan to make a brown carpet a part of your room, ensure you bring in a good deal of brightness with other elements, such as textured fabrics. You can simply add some rich-colored fabrics with a bold theme, so that the room looks cheered up and fresh all the time, at the same time enhancing the impact of a brown carpet. Hang curtains in bright tones, throw pillows or cushions on the couch dipped in fuchsia, yellow, orange, or other pop colors.
Area rugs do the trick
You so want to add a brown carpet to your room but the existing furniture and some other elements just do not seem to coordinate with it. You are not willing to change your entire furniture for that carpet, as it is just not feasible. No what do you do. Well, a simple solution to this situation is to add some area rugs to your room that change the scenario overall.
Pick area rugs with catchy patterns and in coordinating colors. For your Victorian décor, the ones with colorful floral patterns would go just right. If your existing room décor happens to be all modern and happening, go for area rugs with bold geometric patterns and the ones with strong colors.
A brown carpet helps add warmth and richness to a room décor provided it match well with the other elements existing in an interior décor.
