Blue is having a moment in 2020, in fact Sherwin Williams named Naval the color of the year. PANTONE named 19-4052 Classic Blue their color of 2020. This trend has found its way to flooring selections as well and there are plenty of ways to incorporate it into your home. The great thing about blue is that it is a color that often can evoke feelings of calm, peace, and tranquility. This is the perfect way to anchor your home to be a place of comfort and relaxation. Here are a few ways to incorporate blue hues into your home!
Area rugs are a great way to test out a trend in your home, without making a long-lasting commitment. Our selection of area rugs is one of the largest in Morehead City and we have all kinds of styles, from oriental to tropical. Many of our area rugs also come in a variety of hues – including the perfect shade of blue.
When attempting to blend blue into your home décor, we do not recommend a bright blue hardwood floor but rather hues that have cool tones. Cool tones are inclusive of grays and blues. In terms of flooring cool tones, those that translate to floors that are dark browns (ebony, espresso, dark walnut, etc.), grays, and white washes are great options.
More and more people are opting for brighter, bold carpeting choices rather than standard beiges and neutrals. Blue is a safe bet to add in some color to your carpet, without being too over the top. We are seeing homeowners select blue, gray, and other cool toned shades for their carpets. Pair it with a texture or pattern, and this can really add a lot of flair to your floor! With technology advances making carpeting extremely high performance and the endless amount of colors and styles it comes in, blue carpeting can give your home the cool factor it’s looking for!
