HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 9, 2010 7 Clever carpet capers Carpets are the best and fastest way to add warmth to your own space. But there are many things involved when picking the carpet that works for you. Here are some tips to help you create a perfect combination for your home. Embracing patterned carpet does not need to be a daunting concept. Instead of looking at rooms in isolation, choosing carpets that co-ordinate with each other allows you to enhance the sense of space and harmonise disparate elements. Irregularly-shaped rooms can be tamed with the right pattern on the floor, and dark corners can be brightened with a calming neutral or soft chalky tone. Indulge yourself with a contemporary patterned axminster in a sitting room and let elements of your pattern travel further using co- ordinating plains beyond. Create a stunning effect on your stairs with patterned carpet. You can create a runner effect and even make a feature by choosing one of the colours for the walls. Choose a co-ordinating plain for tranquility upstairs but, once downstairs, make a statement with a contemporary pattern. Another option is to go fully fitted on stairs to keep cold toes warm and then pick a highlight colour for rooms that lead from the hall and landing for colour continuity. Large patterns tend to work best in large rooms and smaller patterns tend to work best in smaller rooms. Smaller patterns can be lost in large rooms and large patterns can overpower small rooms. Patterned carpet can create a great focal point in a room. This can be enhanced with surrounding furnishings which complement particular colours within the design.
