PLAIN OR PATTERNED: If space is restricted, a plain or semi plain carpet will invariably create the best impression but will easily show marks and may not be as practical for daily living. However, it is advisable to avoid large designs in a small area. There is now such a vast range of patterns, colours and textures available with which to create that special effect in the room including optional borders.

(Remember - colours, particularly in plain carpets, change between day-light and artificial light so it is essential that samples are checked at home for suitability)
