Sometimes there is no grey area—bold black and white is the only way!

Many of our customers are coming in looking for black and white floors in all categories. Find inspiration with some of our favorite black and white styles in broadloom, area rugs, and luxury vinyl tile/plank.


You can find black and white broadloom carpets in a variety of qualities, textures, and patterns including animal prints, stripes, florals, and geometric styles.

Carpet Time Tip:

If color is critical, we highly recommend ordering a Cutting For Approval (CFA). Dye lots vary from sample to sample especially on wool carpets.

For a nominal fee, a small piece of the carpet is taken from the roll reserved for your order and sent to you for approval. This piece serves as confirmation of the color/pattern.

Note that it will delay the shipment of your order for a few days due to processing time. Once you have approved the CFA, your carpet will ship.

Don’t like the dye lot? You can cancel your order for a refund on the carpet less the cost of CFA.

Stair Runner

A stair runner is always a great place to make a statement in your home but this runner is in a league of its own! Whether your style is minimalist or bold and daring, a stair runner will add style while also cushioning the noise of going up and down.

Find a design with a strong repeating pattern to make an impact like this Nourison style Variegated stair runner designed by Kate Hutchison.

In 2020 we saw many new introductions in indoor/outdoor broadloom and some of our favorites come in black and white.

They are easy to clean, UV stabilized, and versatile to use on steps, breakfast nooks, living rooms, sunrooms, or outdoor patios.  

We love this easy to clean all-weather Momeni Beacon rug that looks great in any indoor or outdoor setting. Available in five standard rug sizes, we currently stock Beacon in the 7’6”x9’6” rug size in three colors including black!

Luxury Vinyl Plank

From whitewashed to almost black dark stained floors, these vinyl flooring styles are sure to transform your home. We carry many different manufacturers but Karndean Designflooring is a favorite here and has some of the best colors and styles on the market.

Karndean’s Rigid Core luxury vinyl plank is easy to maintain and install!  Their growing collection now includes a collection of stone that looks like this crisp white Calacatta marble design. 

In its natural form, this highly desirable stone is both rare and expensive but you can get this luxurious look in a vinyl tile with the added benefit of easier to clean and look after.
