Your home is your fortress, and putting money into making it look and feel its
best is an investment that pays back. Whether your current carpet is old and
tattered or you just want to upgrade to something that's more aesthetically-
pleasing and ties the room together, new carpet is a great consideration.
There are some general things to keep in mind as you begin your search for
the perfect carpet that will help you achieve your home improvement goals.
Where and Where Not to Install Carpet
There's a place for everything, and carpet's certainly one of them. There are
popular areas where carpet is typically installed, and a few of
• Living room
• Guest room
• Entertainment room
However, you should think twice before installation in certain areas of the
home. For example, the mudroom is not a prime choice for obvious reasons.
Furthermore, any room where plumbing could be a concern should make
you think twice as leaks could irreparably damage the material. A flooring
professional can help you decide whether carpet for a specific area of the
home would be a good investment.
Style of Carpet Available
As you prepare to install carpet in your home, you can rest assured it will be
a project you can have fun with and truly let your individuality shine. There
are many styles from which to choose. Just some of these include:
• Cut pile carpet
• Loop pile carpet
• Patterned loop carpet providing multiple heights
• Cut and loop carpet, a creative combination
• Rugs made from carpet pieces with a finished trim
Types of Carpet
Once you have decided on the style that best suits your needs, it's time to
decide on the type. Once again, you have many options. When making this
important decision, it's important to keep in mind that quality counts. You get
what you pay for, and this is an investment in your home that you want to
stand the test of time. For example, when you put extra money into
purchasing a product that is stain resistant, you will in all likelihood get to
enjoy it longer. Other types of carpet that you should actively seek out
depending on your needs include:
• Wear resistant
• Indoor carpeting
