    Put an area rug over it that you like and fits you style until you can change the floor. When I bought my home twenty plus years ago the living room had a light beige carpet in it (Why would they do that). I couldn't change it at the time. I bought a large area rug to cover it. Over a four year period I had carpet cleaned professionally, but it never really came clean. I even cleaned it myself once. I finally got fed up putting money out to get it cleaned. It was time to remodel the whole room. Fireplace redo, paint walls, etc. I pulled up a corner of the carpet and found beautiful maple hardwood floors in good shape. So I removed the carpeting and finished the maple floor. Still use a smaller area rug, but no light carpet to clean.
