Why do we love neutrals?

Neutrals have a long history in interiors of the 90s, early 00s and even into current schemes with beige and then grey taking it in turns to be at the forefront of UK home design. Here at Brintons we’ve seen these shades remain firm favourites for years now and here are some of the top reasons why we all love neutrals.


A neutral will allow you to introduce items and objects that are personal to you. The neutral design of the rest of the room, will ensure that the personal objects, which give your home its identity and reflect its owner, will shine and become the focal point rather than fighting against the rest of the scheme.


It is well known that a neutral interior will make any property attractive to a potential buyer, especially if you are decorating to put your property on the market, selecting a good quality carpet in this shade will inevitably work in your favour during a sale, instead of an old, or cheap carpet, as it helps make the home feel well designed and welcoming.

Show off your architecture

A neutral scheme will also work well where you want the property’s architecture to shine through providing the perfect setting for the design and build to take the forefront, whilst also retaining and ensuring the interior is welcoming.


Decorating with neutral shades and carpets ensures that your scheme will have longevity, as a base you can bring in accessories to add on-trend elements, whilst retaining an overall scheme that will remain timeless for many years to come. For many a neutral carpet is an investment in the design of the property, which will add and retain its value.

Remember though; not all neutrals are equal and of course we truly believe a cheap floor will turn a classic neutral scheme into something with very little appeal. For the scheme to work, a good quality wool-blend carpet is essential. Take a look at our neutral shades for some more inspiration.
