Let the Light In With Light Coloured Carpets

Brighten your day and your decor by choosing a light coloured carpet. Pale shades in creams and light greys can help add space throughout your home, bringing in more light and making a room look and feel a lot bigger.

Step into the light

A light coloured carpet can completely transform a space. Neutral and light tones in your home work with the light and reflect it back into the room. Light colours can create the illusion of more space, opening up rooms and creating an airy, calm and open feel. 

Aside from making your room or hallway feel bigger, light coloured carpets also add a lovely fresh-feeling warmth to a space. And, by going light with your carpet, you have the perfect blank canvas to add clever pops of colour through your other soft furnishings.

Max Up The Light

Laying a very pale carpet can really lighten up the home. It magnifies and reflects the sunshine in summer, while in autumn and winter, can fill the house with light and warmth, even when it's dull and grey outside. This versatile shade works well in a variety of colour schemes and design styles and doesn't need to be boring or clinical.


How do light coloured carpets create a brighter look in a home?

Light colours reflect light, so in summer when the sun is shining, a light coloured carpet will reflect all that lovely light back into the room. Even in autumn and winter when it’s grey outside, a lighter carpet can fill your house with light and warmth.

How do I choose the right light coloured carpet for a living room?

Think about the size of the space and how you want to open it up – a cream carpet is ideal to create the illusion of space in a smaller living room. 

Consider your existing furniture and the shades that complement your colour scheme – a light grey carpet works well with darker greys, blues, purples and rich tones while a cream carpet often provides more of a blank canvas.

Do you use the room a lot? Do you have a big family? Do you have pets or children? If you answered yes, a hard-wearing, stain resistant and bleach-cleanable light carpet may be the ideal choice.
