Should the Carpet Match the Drapes?

As a teenager, I remember going to my friend’s house and just relaxing, playing video games or watching movies on VHS (Yes I’m THAT old). My friend’s family had carpet through their Long Beach home, in all of the bedrooms and in his father’s den. We would hang out in those rooms when we weren’t driving around looking for girls, or playing some sort of backyard sport. Those were simpler times and the design of the home came down to simple principles, including the rule “Does the carpet match the drapes”. In those days, it was an easy question to answer. Today, it’s a bit more complicated.

Carpet for Long Beach homes has evolved into a multifaceted, multicolored, kaleidoscope of textures, fibers, and patterns. The days of a solid colored carpet laid in a room to match the window treatments has passed. Today’s designs allow the carpet for your Long Beach home to match all of the design elements of the room. Furniture, window treatments, trim and even ceiling tiles can be matched through the patterns and color pallets of modern carpet.

Carpet for Long Beach homes can also lend a plush feel to a room through the length of the fiber cut, or it can become a sensible but elegant addition with the use of a tight loop construction and anywhere in between. The colors of the entire room can be matched in a single carpet. The walls Window treatments and furnishings can be three matching colors, and the carpet can tie them all together by having flecks of each color in its fibers. Carpet has become a binder by which rooms can be designed to express the individual’s personal style.
