11 carpet ideas for living rooms that’ll give you major inspo

If you’re looking for a few good carpet ideas for living rooms, then we’ve got you covered. 

When it comes to the most popular room in the house, most people opt for a traditional beige color. While beige does look incredible in a living room, that’s not the only choice you have. In fact, carpet ideas for living rooms can expand to include blue, black, patterned, and even mint green. The possibilities are endless.

Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite living room carpet colors to get those creative juices flowing.


If you’re into sleek and modern designs, then consider playing off the shades of your furniture, paint, carpet, and linen to create a monochromatic environment. Low pile gray carpet works great for this.


If you are going to settle for a beige carpet, consider a high pile beige carpet that complements other similarly neutral tones.

Wall to wall living room carpet

For the last decade or so, wide baseboards have been the go-to — however, more and more, we’re seeing wall-to-wall carpet re-emerging. And we’re loving it.


We’re not sure why more people don’t go for a dark carpet, but a deep charcoal or even a sleek black looks incredible in a living room.

Patterned carpet is an easy way to liven up any space — especially if you’re working with more neutral furniture and paint colors.

White living room carpet

If you’re brave enough to try it, white carpet is a stunning choice for any room in the house. However, if you have small children or pets or you’re prone to spills, you may want to skip this living room carpet idea.

Textured carpet doesn’t have to be a crazy color or pattern to brighten up a space. A simple addition of texture can go a long way.

High Pile

Do we love this light gray shade of carpet? Yes. But do we love the high pile nature of the carpet, too? Also yes.

Mint green living room carpet

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to the color of your living room carpet. Even a mint green might look nice — you never know until you explore the possibilities. 

Royal blue carpet

Just because everyone else has multi-toned beige carpet in their living room, doesn’t mean you have to, too. This blue carpet proves it.

Chocolate living room carpet

We absolutely LOVE a deep brown living room carpet. It’s sleek, calming, and clean, and it’s a popular carpet trend that will likely never go away.
