Wondering what colour sofa goes with grey carpets? Fear not - we've got you covered with style tips and ideas to get the perfect sofa match.
Grey carpets are a style staple these days, chic and practical especially for busy households with kids and maybe pets. The same effects and style can be achieved on a more pocket-friendly budget with grey rugs - easier to clean and to move around, too. But once you've got your grey rug or carpet sorted, what colour sofa should you put with it? Well, that very much depends on what you want to achieve with your room and colour theory is key to figuring it out.
Lighter shades will keep things feeling more spacious and darker colours can feel more luxurious and cosy. Neutral and soft colours can create harmonious and calming vibes, and brighter colours can create bold statement looks.
We've gathered together all our tips and ideas to showcase a range of possibilities, featuring our gorgeous grey rugs and our sofa ranges.
There's nothing wrong with keeping your sofa in the same colour family as your flooring, and this can create a harmonious look.
Going for a darker rug or carpet and lighter sofa like in these 2 examples helps add light and height to the room, especially when paired with lighter walls.
By making your sofa a darker shade of grey than your rug or carpet, you add depth and dimension to a room. When the walls are also lighter, like in the 1st example, the room still feels airy and the sofa really stands out. However, When the walls and the sofa are both darker, like in the 2nd example, it can create a luxurious sophisticated feel, with the lighter floor adding width to the room.
Mono rooms are chic and striking. You could match the shade of your sofa to the shade of your rugs and contrast it with the walls and flooring to make it all really stand out.
You can really add some character to your room with a coloured sofa. Rich, sumptuous fabrics in gorgeous jewel tones are really in right now, and that looks set to stay, but your choice of colour can influence the overall feel of the room.
Add warmth to your room by choosing reds, oranges and pink sofas to sit with your grey rugs or carpets. Bolder colours coupled with luxurious velvet fabrics will be on-trend and sumptuous, while softer and more gentle shades will create a calmer environment (note: dusky pinks complement grey really well!).
And this sofa, too.
Cool colours such as greens and blues are calming and reflect shades we see in the natural world. These are colours that anchor, meaning that can really tie a room together and draw the eye. They also look fabulous when coupled with gold accessories to give a real feeling of royalty.
So there you have it! A world of possibilities when it comes to what colour sofa goes with grey carpets. Figure out what sort of mood you'd like to create, and go for it!
