Good Questions: Can An Apartment Look Good With Beige Carpet?

AT reader, beitz, has a question about the look of beige carpet in an apartment.

"How can you make your apartment look cool if you have carpet that you are not allowed (or don't want to) remove? Almost every picture on the site has great wood floors. Can your place look great even with crappy beige carpet?"

We think you can work around this carpet situation and can make it work in home. By opting to paint the walls a bright color and place art galleries on the walls to draw the eye up, you can make the beige carpet feel neutral. Plus if you are renting and you remove the carpet, you may have issues with your apartment manager when you move. For whatever reason you keep the beige or rent an apartment with it, your reasons are your own and you'll make it work out.

What do you think - can beige carpet work in a space?
