Home Accents Ideas | Brighter Carpet Colors For a Modern, Bolder Room

How can you add color to your home? Well, the easiest way to add color to your home is through well-placed home accents such as carpets and rugs. Carpets and rugs that are bold in color can instantly pop out a room.

Here are some ideas I have selected for various rooms:

Latticed edged carpet

Cool turquoise rug

Blue Chocolate Rug

Eye-popping Red-Orange Carpet


If you've recently moved into a new home or you're looking for a way to add a modern boost to your current living space - the answer could be right under your feet. Most homes, especially if they're new, feature a neutral colored carpet. Typically, you'll be working with something along the lines of light beige to maybe a dark tan color. Although these neutral colors are great if your room is composed primarily of brown hues, you may want to go in a different direction with the look and feel of the space. Whether you want to brighten up a previously neutral room or you're looking to modernize your home - updating your carpet color could be the solution you're looking for.

Although you don't have to go drastically bold with a bright red or neon green, you can certainly add color and style to a room with a brightly colored carpet. Complimenting bright floors with toned down walls creates a fun and coordinated atmosphere without overwhelming. For example, if you're looking to make a room feel lighter and bolder at the same time - you may feel as though you've hit a brick wall. Rooms that require this kind of attention can often be awkwardly shaped and/or don't get a lot of natural lighting. If this is the case, lightening the room up while still creating that bold style can become conflicts of interest. A great way to do this is by placing a deep hue on the floor and choosing a lighter, pastel shade of the same color for the walls. The pastel color will help reflect the light that does come into the room while the carpets will give that coordinated and rich look that so many homeowners desire throughout their homes.

If you have wooden floors and aren't crazy about the idea of placing carpet over them completely, you still have options. Throw rugs and area rugs are a great way to add a pop of color and still keep your beautiful wooden floors. These small rugs can act as the perfect accent piece to any room and certainly give that "modern" look that so many strive for today. If you have a primarily black and white room, adding a red throw rug underneath the coffee table can add a pop of color instantly the room. If you have a primarily brown or tan space, which go great alongside hardwood floors, you can add pizzazz to the room by choosing a cool leopard print or a boldly patterned rug as the perfect accent piece. Although many homeowners think they have to turn to the walls to add that pop of color or bold pattern, the floor offers plenty of space to give your room personality.

So even though the idea of a bright red throw rug might seem strange at first, you will be amazed at the subtle, but beautiful, impact that a brightly colored or patterned rug will have on your room. If you've moved into a brand new home, picture your floors as blank canvases. Although you may be used to focusing on the wall colors for the décor of the room, choose some carpet colors as inspiration, as well. By coordinating your room from the ground up - you can be sure that your finished product gives you the results you've dreamed of... and then some.

Hi! Do you think this would be good for our office? We bought some samples but they had a little accident with the printer inks. We called these Orange County carpet cleaners for some fixings. Carpet cleaning in Orange County is abundant, so it's not hard to find good services. They even recommend steps on do-it-your-own cleaning for common spots.

Anyway, one of my colleagues volunteered to do the designs, and I'm trying to help. Maybe I'll show these ideas to her.
