- Scale: large scale patterns can dominate a room, they are best used in a design with fairly neutral or solid-colored furnishings. Small scale patterns are a bit more versatile but you'll still want to match them up with the furnishings to make sure they complement each other.
- Colors: You can pick a carpet that uses different shades of the same color to subtly bring in the pattern. You can also be very bold with highly contrasting colors and make the carpet the focal point of the room. Popular colors in patterned carpets include grey, silver and lavender.
Textured carpetsTextured carpets let you bring in the feel of a pattern but without the different colors or distinct designs. Swirls, lattices, plaids, pin dots... these designs and more are made from different heights of the carpet pile or loops. These carpets tend to be very durable, making them an excellent choice in a high traffic area. Popular textures include ribbing and woven textures.
