Dark Coloured Carpets

Dark Matter

There's no need to be afraid of the dark when it comes to the home!

While it can seem like a bold choice, a statement moody blue, charcoal grey or inky black carpet can add real drama and glamour to a room.

Darker hued carpets enable you to warm up a room, giving larger spaces a cosiness while adding depth and character. This is an attractive feature for a living room, family room or bedroom.

Shown below is one of our bolder colours – Cornflower, which features in both our Primo Plus and Primo Ultra ranges. This on-trend, deep blue carpet is perfect for adding some colour to your room and giving it a modern and luxurious feel whilst making your floor a real feature.

Experimenting with Dark Colours

It’s much more interesting to play with colour and dark hues can create a warm and welcoming space – plus a dark coloured carpet can also be very practical.

There’s also a common misconception that dark colours should be avoided as they can make a room seem smaller and gloomy. While they can be harder to use, it doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t – just take more care with where and how you use them.

From the experts

"Many people shy away from dark colours as they think it will make their room look dark, gloomy and uninviting, often that is completely wrong. As an interiors stylist, I have learnt that darker tones can have the opposite effect and make a room feel more appealing, dramatic and create a scheme that oozes character and style.

By choosing the right balance of colour, you can step away from the pale grey, off whites and lighter colours so favoured by recent designers and make a real impact in your home that you can live with and enjoy.."
