Decorating with Style
 When choosing your overall scheme, a good place to start is by finding some interior design related magazines, perhaps at a library, or look online at room scenes that are similar to what you want to achieve. 
This should help you get a feel for what appeal's to you most for your project, as well as spark some new idea's along the way. 
Carpet and Vinyl Flooring come in a wide array of colors, styles, textures, lustres, sheens and patterns.  There is a style for everyone, and every room, and their versatility and easy maintenance is unmatched by any other floor covering.   
Carpet is far and away the leader of any other floor covering in terms of all the different looks and styles that can be achieved. Through various types of construction and the use of color in countless different ways there is an extremely broad range of choices to ponder.
Vinyl Sheet Flooring  replicates slate, hardwood, cork, marble, tile, cobblestone, pavers, ... the list is endless with literally thousands of choices. 
Both carpet and vinyl can be subtle and neutral to blend providing background ... or can make a bold statement with vibrant color and/or a dramatic pattern.
Typically, one decorating rule to follow, is to first look at other elements that will be entering the space before deciding which style will work best for the floor.  Decorators and designers will tell you to look for contrasts between the different elements ... so if your furnishings and walls are darker in color,  you should choose mid to light colored carpet, and vice versa. 
Similarly in staying true to the contrasting rule, a heavily patterned couch may clash or become too busy paired with a heavily patterned carpet.
We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the carpet and resilient floor covering industry.
