What is a neutral carpet?

The colour neutral is usually described as hues without colour. Our neutral carpets are inspired by earthy undertones, such as beige, light browns, light greys, taupes and blacks. They provide a natural back drop  for differing interior styles. Neutral carpets are perfect for complementing other colours and often add warmth and comforting vibe to a room.

What is a good neutral carpet?

Neutral carpets provide a back drop for your interior style. Beiges and browns are seen as a good neutral carpet colours as they can easily complement bold interior design. Black and grey neutral carpets give a feeling of elegance and sophistication, perfect for adding a timeless and classic feel to your room.

What types of neutral carpets are available in the Essentials Collection?

The Essentials Collection is for easy living where natural flooring choices are simple and all at an accessible price point. The collection is extremely versatile, and we have a large selection of neutral carpets to choose from. Our collection includes wool carpets ranging from neutral herringbone zig zag patterns to wool rib patterns. We also have a selection of plant fibre herringbone carpets finished in 100% sisal yarn, perfect for living rooms, halls and staircases.

How to style neutral carpets

Neutral carpets provide the blank canvas. Layer your room with soft furnishings and adorn it with soft wool and linen to create an inviting feeling or choose a subtle contrast to your room with bold throws and cushions to complement your neutral carpet. Darker tones can make your room feel smaller, but cosy, and light tones can make your space feel bigger.

Make a beautiful home where, looking down definitely means perking up.

Is neutral carpet easy to maintain?

Regular maintenance is important. We would recommend vacuuming at least once a week, or twice a week in high footfall areas. If you've chosen a neutral wool carpet, it’s best to use a vacuum cleaner with brushes to remove any surface fluffing just in the first few weeks. After that, brushes can be switched off or a suction only vacuum used.

If you've chosen a sisal as your neutral carpet, then remember: Natural plant fibres don’t like to get wet and even water could potentially leave marks, so ensure you are treating spills quickly by blotting with a white, clean cloth.

Worried about getting your carpet dirty?

We understand that when buying neutral carpets, maintenance and keeping your carpet clean is a top consideration. We have partnered up with the experts, WoolSafe, to give you expert cleaning advice. Apply a WoolSafe Approved spot remover for easy cleaning, which include our Natural Flooring Care Kits. We also have handy 'how to' videos on how to remove stains from your neutral carpets safely.

What colour walls look the best with neutral carpets?

Neutral carpets are all about creating a warm and welcoming feeling. Your home should tell your story and make your heart sing as soon as you walk through the door. Neutral carpets work really well with dark wall colours, adding brightness to your room and alluding to a larger space. Neutral carpets also go perfectly well with soft, light wall colours. Pairing your neutral carpet with a soft wall colour a couple of tones lighter will instantly create an elegant vibe. Dependent on whether you’re looking for warm or cool tones, we suggest taking a look at greys, whites, blues and greens.
