Carpet / April 19, 2018 / Beverly Robles
As any skilled interior decorator will repeat time and time again, the general color of any newly installed carpet must match the rest of the room. Because of this, it is generally best to install the carpet first and then purchase furniture in the aftermath. Because basements are often a bit dank and dark, however, people may want to choose a carpet color that is more uplifting. Red, orange, and yellow should all work, although these colors may have to be tempered a bit with lighter walls and ceilings. Those families who prefer Earth tones might choose blue, green, or brown.
Of course, laying down new flooring is never very simple. For the squares, the floor in any room must be cleared and the floor marked up to ensure that the squares are put in straight. The center of the room should be found and this is where the work will begin from. Although many people will think that laying the flooring along one wall to start the process is the correct thing to do, in fact, this could make the room look a little odd in the end. With the vagaries of the building trade, some rooms are not perfectly squared off and this then is where problems become apparent, but only after the majority of the flooring has been laid. Better then to start from the middle out so that the look of the room is kept symmetrical.
