Carpet Retailer Recommendations & Color Ideas?? Just completed painting the walls and the ceiling Burgundy and am looking for carpeting. I have black leather recliners on order. Please provide retailer recommendations and color ideas to match the burgundy walls and black seats. Room size is 27' x 20'. Thanks, Kevin

I'd say black carpet would look nice or black carpet with specs of gray and/or some other color. Try locating a carpet dealer near you and compare prices. Sometimes you can get really good deals on remanent (SP?) carpet.

Kevin,
A dark gray carpet would also look nice.
Here's an idea using a cheap program.

I second Glenise's recommendation. Of course, I'm partial to black as I have it. I bought it from Lowe's. They had better prices than any of the other local carpet shops.

Don't forget to check the carpet outlets for price$. Also consider commercial carpet with multiple colors. Blacks and grays are nice with the burgundy, but so is gold and green. You can actually call your black chairs your "neutral" color in the pallette. Take a painted card with you to various carpet stores and let your imagination soar!Posted Image
