Let’s see things this way. If you are planning to create a modern look living room with accented ceiling beam or a designed false ceiling and a magnificent chandelier, you would want your carpet to be coupled perfectly with the ceiling design and level up the charm of the room. A textured carpet or a less patterned carpet would complement the look in this scenario.

Thus, it is equally important to consider the ceiling while selecting the carpet to make a controlled décor.

Why to choose a hand-made carpet for your home?

Hand-knotted carpets are meticulously made with natural materials in different designs, shapes, and sizes. The densely woven knots create an intricate design to match either a residential space or a commercial space.
