What colour carpet goes with grey sofas? 

Your grey sofa may look amazing in its own right, but if you were to pair it with the right surroundings, e.g. a sumptuous new carpet, then you’ll see it in a whole new light.


Treating yourself to a new sofa is an exciting experience. From getting to browse through the many different styles, shapes, patterns, textures and more, to the satisfaction you feel when it’s finally in your home and you’re about to sit down on it for the very first time.


Better still….


Buying new carpet that goes with your new sofa, takes the entire experience to a whole new level. So if you happen to have just bought or are about to buy a grey sofa (great choice, it’s a colour you can’t go wrong with from a stain and interior design perspective). And if you’re going for maximum impact by treating yourself to some new carpet too; you may now be wondering, ‘What colour carpet goes with grey sofas?’


So, what colour carpet does go with a grey sofa?

It’s a very good question, and the good news is, you do have options, quite a few of them.


Option 1: Beige carpet with grey sofa  

Grey and beige are the perfect sofa-carpet pairing. Both colours are understated and sophisticated and work effortlessly well together if applied in moderation. Now you may be initially put off by this combination because grey is cold and beige is warm, but providing you give your overall colour scheme some thought, there’s no reason why you can’t make the two shades mesh well together.


If a grey/beige colour palette appeals to you, don’t overlook greige, which is a combination of grey and beige. The beauty of this hybrid shade is that it creates a richer colour that can be made warmer or cooler, depending on how much grey there is.

Option 3: Grey sofa with grey carpet  

What colour was literally made for grey? Grey, of course! There are obviously different shades of grey, which means you can go all out with it if you want to. However, to avoid your living room looking too dark, make sure you incorporate some complementary colours - crisp white or cream immediately springs to mind. And if you like colour, feel free to experiment with an injection of mustard, green, teal blue, red or blush pink.


Grey carpet ideas to get you started:

Grey carpet’s great for making a statement, and if it’s dark grey, it’s ideal for hiding the signs of everyday wear and tear (e.g. dirty footprints and other marks!) Again, there are plenty of options, such as:

2. Venus Silver Carpet 

3. Living Hill Super View Carpet

4. Living Manors Carpet
