4 tips to consider when selecting carpeting for your home
Choosing carpet for your home can seem daunting, but there are some things to consider before you get started. Whether you are considering carpeting a room in your home or carpeting an entire floor such as your living room or master bedroom, the carpet you choose will be the centerpiece of the space for many years to come and have a tremendous impact.
Consider these top 4 tips when purchasing new carpet.
How much traffic will the carpet get?
If you have children or pets, carpeting in high-traffic areas is a must. Carpets that are installed in your bedroom can last for decades if they are not exposed to heavy foot traffic. If there is not going to be a lot of activity on the floor, consider using hardwood, tile or laminate floors. These surfaces are much easier to clean and maintain than carpeting, especially if they will not be exposed to a lot of traffic. Tip: Choose higher quality carpet for high-traffic areas so it can withstand the extra abuse without wearing out quickly.
What color scheme or pattern do you have in mind?
If you are considering new carpeting, it is probably because you want to change the look of a specific room or floor. New carpet will enhance the color scheme already present in your home and give new life to any space. Tip: Carpet colors can either be complementary or contrasting depending on how they are used. Selecting new carpet in a complementary color scheme can help new and existing colors to stand out.
Is it time for new flooring?
If you are not sure whether new carpet is right for you, consider some of the other options available to homeowners when choosing new flooring. Hardwood floors are beautiful, durable, easy to maintain, and some new hardwood floors are made to look like new again with new finishes that restore the old beauty of vintage wood. Tile flooring gives new life to rooms, is easy to clean and maintain, and new tile flooring is available in a variety of styles from traditional to tropical. Laminate flooring gives new life to rooms without the worry of spills and stains. It looks like new with new finishes that restore the old beauty of new laminate flooring.
What do you want to feel in the space?
Carpet can change a room from being cold and clinical to warm and inviting to your guests. Perhaps you’d like to add some new warmth or new life to a tired old space. Installing new carpet is one of the easiest ways to change the feel of any room and give new life to your home. Tip: If new carpet doesn’t fit into your budget, consider adding new carpeting in one area or replacing fraying edges on existing carpets. This is an inexpensive way to give new life to tired old carpet.
