    I would go with another neutral, something similar to what you have now. I don't think you want to go with a bold color to fight with the bright paint color.

    Hello. I agree with you a poster in neutral is always a good basis for grounding a rooms decor. The only consideration would be if you have pets then some special carpet color and pattern suggestions could be helpful.

    Most any nuetral tone that attracts you will work well through the years and will make it easy to blend or contrast with any wall colors you might select in the future.

    Agreed on the neutral and, depending on how much traffic you're looking to see, I think burber carpets have really come a long way and their very durable. They also come with design "cut" into them - so they may be one color but they can still offer and really cool and fun updated look.

  • I would choose a neutral tone but lean towards a gray. There are websites that will allow you to upload a photo of the room and "try" the rug. I would do that and see what makes you smile.

    As someone who has pets I took my carpet out years ago and installed a laminate house wide. Wish I would have done that decades ago.

    So much easier to take care of and looks better too.

    I just have throw rugs where needed.

    I would go with laminate flooring instead of carpet it is easy to clean and to remove stains and you don't have to worry about constantly cleaning- even tile or the tile that looks like wood floors are good options as well

    Hi Dakota: Gray is nice, it goes with most things, and if you get one that has different shades of gray and black flecks, that might look nice.

    Laminate, the carpet will not wear as well, we took out the carpet years back after the padding began to bunch and it just would not come clean. Wish we had done it sooner.

    I would go Neutral, The colour could be Grey or Brown like the colour of your Waist Rail.

    Plan for something that would work today and later if you change the wall. Neutral sand or grey would be great.

    Usually, I choose the color of the carpet to match the color of the walls to combine it all in a single composition. I would advise you to do it this way, it should look amazing. Once my carpet was severely damaged due to a detergent that painted the carpet differently for unknown reasons. In that case, I just turned to https://magiccarpetrepairs.com.au/ Then carpet saw a new life and began to look fresher. This turned out to be another reason to refresh the interior of my bedroom

  • For me, neutral colors would best fit this.
