Because of that fact it is best left for rooms that are seldom used or for homes that do not have kids or pets.
Bright colors such ar reds are popular in more modern homes. If you want a bright color keep in mind that they could be subject to sun fading and the color might become tiresome over time. For these reasons bright colors are best left for rooms that do not receive intense sunlight and for rooms where you don’t expect to keep the carpet for a great deal of time.
Dark colors such as dark blue or even black are often used in rooms such as media rooms. It will help to darken the room to enhance your television or movie viewing. This color of carpet would be best left for large rooms since they could make smaller rooms seem even smaller.
